02:39 <efc> Thats still a lot for used crappers.

02:46 <Soul_keeper> :)

02:47 <efc> Self cleaning though, maybe I should pick one up. Mine definitely isn't.

17:12 <xcamel> good for you..

17:12 <FreeLarry58> that and fighting the latest quad with vista - still a lot of problems but seems to be getting better if limit what projects run and disable the screen savers and sidebars

17:13 <CoderForLife> Save yourself - skip Vista

17:13 <FreeLarry58> so far only einstien and sti run on it with little problems - most others cause spurious shutdowns and bsods when finishing units

17:13 <xcamel> nothing is so bad in computordom that vista can make infinitely worse.

17:13 <CoderForLife> Go back - it's a trap

17:14 <FreeLarry58> yea know that but couldn't get f9 to install on it either

17:14 <FreeLarry58> or f8 all the way down to fc6

17:14 <xcamel> quad core intel?

17:14 <CoderForLife> do F8, then do in-place upgrade

17:14 <xcamel> it needs 64 bit F8

17:14 <FreeLarry58> the chipset incompatible

17:14 <xcamel> I had that problem too.

17:15 <FreeLarry58> tried the f8 64 bit no go  either

17:15 <xcamel> send the box back.

17:15 <FreeLarry58> lol - naww will upgrade it later

17:15 <FreeLarry58> after i take care of a few more of the wifes bills

17:19 <CoderForLife> just tell the billing companies that it was all a big mistake, and fix the box

18:08 <PovAddict> look at how existing pages get it

18:08 <nickuwo> mmm

18:09 <PovAddict> apparently there is a get_logged_in_user

18:09 <PovAddict> util.inc:68

18:10 <PovAddict> which returns an object with the user info

18:10 <PovAddict> and stores it in the global $g_logged_in_user
