AFAIK, it works the same on Windows 7 as on Vista, which is only slightly different than XP IME. There's an advanced sharing wizard somewhere in Explorer's options.

R/W folders work like XP in 7.

What happened here? We're back to page 1!

Was it getting too big for the servers perchance?

I wonder how this goes down with her vaccination fans.

Oh no.  I thought when the new thread started I wouldn't be subscribed to it.  It's the only reason I ever posted, because I knew at 10,000 there would be a reboot.

I did not know it would somehow mean I would be subscribed to the new one.

Oh no.  No no no no no

It shows up on my list of topics.  There is no way out of it.

There is no way to not see a particular topic in that option.

The other choice is to new replies to your posts.  You could have had this thread not show up there, but then you posted...in this thread.

I voted today. Brazilian elections. President, 2 senators, state and federal parliament. Voted for the "beast" for the senate. We got electronic voting. To annul my vote I can no longer draw dicks in the little squares like in the good ol' days. I have to enter an invalid number. Like '666'.
