How to Clear the Windows Paging File at Shutdown How to Clear the Windows Paging File at Shutdown This article documents the method for clearing the Windows paging file (Pagefile.sys) during the shutdown process, so that no unsecured data is contained in the paging file when the shutdown process is complete.

Some things to note: I did this with a Linksys WRT54G-TM, which is just a T-Mobile branded version of the Linksys WRT54G (for the @home service). I did not have to really do anything special to get it to work (though I'm not using the bridging feature), so the setup doesn't have require much configuration. I will note however that I am not able to stream to more than one set of speakers at once. It causes an "unknown error -15000" which I cannot resolve currently.

PURCHASE First thing first, we need a burner. I personally chose an LG GGW-H20L because it has HD DVD Read support, Lightscribe, Blu Ray Burning, and regular DVD burning. I still have a fairly large HD DVD collection along with my Blu Ray's, so I wanted a DVD Drive as a backup, besides, it was a little cheaper than the new version that did not have the HD DVD support.

@cowan1: 1) how easy is Ubuntu to install? In my experience - especially with the most recent versions - it is now extremely easy and straightforward to install. Depending on your system configuration you may run into a problem or two along the way, but even if you do there is an extremely helpful and supportive community of fellow Ubuntu users who are always happy to help you through. The three latest versions have installed on both my desktop and latop with no hiccups whatsoever. Older versions could on occasion be a little wonky when it came to things like wireless cards.

Digital closed captioning (line 21), closed caption insertion, l PixelTools products can insert and extract a wide variety of closed captioning formats into and out of an MPEG stream. Our products can also add captioning during MPEG encoding and instant analysis of any MPEG streams. Currently supported formats include CEA-708, CEA-608, SCTE20, SCTE21, ATSC, DVD, and Analog. The tools include support for CC1 through CC4. The closed captioning source can be standard closed captioning files (such as .SCC or .CAP), the actual closed captioning text strings along with their associated time code, or formatted user data to support a custom captioning format. Our tools can convert from one caption format to another, optionally removing the existing captioning, in an existing MPEG stream without re-encoding.
