you should try defragmenting i hear that helps

If his main problems are viruses (which appear they are) then defragmenting will help little, since all it does is speed up hard drive reads/writes.

However, if he has a shitload of files and hasn't defragmented in a long time, taking the time defrag now will make the virus scan go faster.
Careful with that axe, Eugene.

Don't buy a Seagate. Some are made in Taiwan and are good. Some are made in former Maxtor factories in china and they fail all the time. The quality is so sketchy that you're safer to go to Western Digital.
That's what a4yo had to say on that a while back.

I used to know a site on which you could post youtube.com url's, and it'd transform it into an audio download. However, i forgot the name. HALP!

And another one.. as a kid i used to watch this cartoon on tv about a group of teens, that crossed through a portal into another world from a funpark, I think it was. This new world or dimension was sort of a fantasy D&D place, and as such they were each given an item with an appropiate power. One was given an invisibility cloak, another had a bow that shot arrows of light and another had this staff that unfolded itself into different shapes, if i remember correctky. There were more, but I can't recall them all. In this worl they had to fight the bad guy, obviously. The picture I have in my mind somewhat resembles Skeletor, but to be honest  have no idea if that's even remotely correct. Does anybody have a clue what I'm talking about?

Seagate all the way, but still keep good backups since all drives are disposable.

And incase vixy's down, which it commonly is, and you just want the video, the following site is also helpful: http://www.redtubedownload.info/

ummmmm. That site supports lots and lots of video sites, similar in functionality to youtube. It doesn't discriminate. (the little dropdown bar between the address bar and get video button)

JDowloader is my bet.
Automatically recognizes clipboard links and adds them in the "to add" list, can instantly convert in an MP3 or similar format, and the main thing is that it is an awesome download manager.
Last year, I dreamt I was pissing at a restroom, but I missed the urinal and my penis exploded.

I just got the DownloadHelper firefox extension. When on a youtube page or other such pages just click on the little arrow, hover over the thing you want to download, and hit download and convert. mp3 is an option for it.
No downtime, no legal issues, and it's faster than vixy.

I doubt Soldat would ever have built in voice, but right now I think it has some sort of teamspeak connection.

And fracs has a popular vent server.
