    Yeah was gonna comment. It's pretty cool. I also like the way you have the top of itunes over everything else. How is that done or is it only possible with vista?

    This is XP :)

    I just made an itunes window not maximized, and having about a 1cm border around it. then when ever I opened another window, resized it to the size of the FireFox window. The start bar is the Dock station you get with my vista skin - http://forum.turboduck.net/showthread.php?t=2285 - and lots of links to my likely most used programs.

    Oh, and I've hidden the actual start bar on the left of the screen.

    I'm banning them as they register and will then get to the deleting but I really wish the powers that be would upgrade that damn forum, right now you need to go into every single thread and delete manually whereas with vB 3.1 and higher and as the mods will tell you here, you select some checkboxes and job done !

    God, I feel really sorry for all the mods etc.. on the official forums having to go to such lengths to get rid of loads of stupid posts by spam bots or whatever they are in just a few minutes. In just a few minutes they have racked up 7 pages of crap. To delete it all would probably take hours :(

    Can someone do me a favour? Register at the official forums and tell me if you are registered right away or do you need to validate your email? If not then that's why they are extremely prone to these spam attacks!

    Diablo, I re-tried it, and I can view the forums without an activation, but to actually post, you do need to activate it.
