Well I would like to say my experience with DSL and noobs went as smoothly
My brother in law got an old hewlett packard 233Mhz hunka-junk outta the trash..someone chucked it out
Well to make a long story short he used DSL effectively, could chat, browse, and dork around on the internet..but didnt like the fact that ymessenger didnt have the "chatrooms" tab like the winblows version has....soooo I got a faster PIII computer and loaded it up with 192M of RAM and a 10Gig hd, and walked him thru the format/install of win2k....in less than 24hrs he managed to download enuff spamware/spy crap that he is getting popups left and right and all that...even after patching fully (no more available updates), running 2 different antivirus software (mcafee and avg antivir), running spy cleaning stuff (spybot s&d and adaware), and putting zone alarm to kill all the spyware crap and it still is messed up...Cant remove this dumb a$$ flashing icon in the startbar...and all of this was behind my SmoothWall firewall
Hell he had a 45 second boot time with DSL..now on the faster machine with 3x the ram it still wont boot up fully in under 4 min!
Just goes to show you that a firewall is as only good as the person behind it...you let a schmuck loose on the web, its like letting a 10 year old drive a car...they really should licence people to use the internet!
OF WHICH I JUST FOUND
|Can I get a list of Yahoo! Chat rooms? What about localized lists?|
Tools->Room List will let you list available Yahoo! Chat rooms. Yahoo! has currently disabled user-created rooms. The option to create rooms still exists in Gaim but is non-functional unless Yahoo! re-enables user-created rooms.
Please note that defaults to US localized chat rooms. To get a localized room list, you'll need to change the Chat Room Locale setting in the account editor, under "Show more options". In previous releases, this was known as "Chat Room List URL". The URL is no longer used; it has been replaced by a country code. These codes are the same as the country codes previously used in the URLs. Certain country codes no longer seem to work (most notably de).
The list of known country codes is:
* aa => Asia
* ar => Argentina
* au => Australia
* br => Brazil
* ca => Canada
* cf => Central African Republic
* cn => China
* dk => Denmark
* es => Spain
* fr => France
* hk => Hong Kong
* in => India
* it => Italy
* kr => Korea, Republic of
* mx => Mexico
* no => Norway
* se => Sweden
* sg => Singapore
* tw => Taiwan
* uk => United Kingdom
* us => United States of America
If you discover any of these no longer work, or find other country codes that do work, please don't hesitate to contact the development team. (See the Contact Information page.)
