Windows XP SP2 Memory usage set to system cache, not good for me

Well … today i just went to change the Memory Usage option on Windows XP SP2 into System Cache because i’m just curious if these option are going to be useful for a computer that run mostly as a server. And as you already guessed, after changing the option i have to restart my computer, so i do it. After finished booting and logged in into Windows, i get this message from the TurtoiseSVN :

Faulting application tsvncache.exe, version 1.4.0.7501, faulting module msvcr80.dll, version 8.0.50727.762, fault address 0x00008a8c.

Which is not normal, because i never get that message before switching the memory usage option. But since i can still use TortoiseSVN to fetch files from SVN Repository without problem, so i ignore that message. Then since i got bored, i tried to browse around the web but first i need to take a look at my Google Analytics account to see how this site statistic for today … so far without problem until i try to logout from my Google Account … and i get this another error message from Squid Proxy :

(10055) WSAENOBUFS, No buffer space available.

Daemon Tools 4.09.1 and SPTD 1.43 / 1.45 problem with backup image ?

Previously (actually 2 days ago) i was able to play The Sims 2 (with it’s various expansion pack), and Football Manager 2007 using the backup image i have created before without problem at all. But yesterday, no matter what i do i always get the “Please Insert the correct CD-ROM, Select OK and restart application message” (obviously the game detect that i’m using backup image, because it’s worked fine if i’m not using the backup image) … which is kinda strange for me because just as i said before, i can run them without problem using CureROM or YASU

I tried restarting my computer for more than 5 times, installing new public beta SPTD Driver (1.45), tried using Protstop, etc. but still resulting in the same error message. And then i tried searching the net to anyone who’s experiencing the same problem as me and found one (although he is not playing the same game). And thanks to someone there, i was able to get the image worked again. Because i also experience the same problem 1 day after i updated Daemon Tools 4.09.1 (previously 4.03HE) with SPTD 1.43 (later updated to 1.45)

Ok … so what did i do to fix this problem ?

Have you tried using Optimized Firefox Build ?

So yesterday i decided to use an optimized Firefox build because the default Firefox build takes long time to load (even Opera is fast than Firefox installed on my system). Previously i think it was normal because i had many Firefox extensions installed

But … since i’m really curios about it, i decided to take a look at various Optimized Firefox Build for specific processor and found pigfoot firefox build site

As for the rest, i think you already guessed it … i downloaded the P3 Build because of this reason :

P3 build build with /GAL7 arch:SSE2 and mmoy’s SSE2 patches, for AMD Athlon 64, AMD Sempron, Pentium D, Pentium M, Pentium 4 and Celeron 1.7 GHz+

FSP Blue Storm II 500W is still not enough for me ?

I just do not understand, how come everytime i get new PSU with higher watts and claims to provide higher ampere at +3.3V and +5V rails than the old power supplies (even for brand name power supplies such as my previous Enermax and Enlight), the +3.3 and +5 Voltage always below the recommended area (in other words there’s no change from the previous PSU) although there’s no new peripherals added and even worse i just bought this new PSU several days ago (because i read good reviews about this psu from various website such as from here, here and here) and no this time i do not overclock anything

From BIOS i saw this new psu only provides 3.28V (it always stay in this area and never reached 3.3) for the +3.3V, and 4.89 although at first i saw 5.05 on the +5V rail. And i’m sure that value will be much lower than this after being used for about 6 months or more (which result in unexpected system crash). Other than that, i also saw the same value from Lavalyst Everest, SiSoft Sandra, and ITE Smart Guardian (although i did not check it via wire method like this guy done here)

Quoted from that page :

good because the 5 and 12 were sligtly low (4.96/11.92) but verry stable under load (voltage actualy came up about .02v) and i was able to bring them both up with the 1 pot.

Goodbye Barton … Welcome X2

Yesterday, my old computer which is using AMD Athlon XP Barton Core 2600+ combined with Albatron KX18D Pro II Mobo finally leave this world :P … after serving me for more than 5 years

Although at the same day i just bought a new 500 Power Supply (FSP Blue Storm II 500 Watt) but it seems the mainboard / the processor can not hold it any longer

And since i just can not live without my computer, today i bought a brand new computer / peripherals (actually not all of them are brand new because i just need to replace specific part that can not be brought over from my old computer)

Digg Protection using htaccess

Today i just saw a referer to this site coming from Digg Upcoming page (i guess someone submit this blog to Digg website) although i doubt that it’ll reach the main page, but i think it is better for me to prevent this site from going down (the worst case is my page changed into my host suspended page) just in case someone submit this site to various big website and it appear there

And now this is the method is use to try to redirect everyone who came to this site from big site such as slashdot. Btw i found this method via PlanetOzh at Joseph Scott’s Blog which is taken from Ottodestruct (although i get 404 error not found message when i tried to visit the page mentioned in Joseph Scott’s blog) … and of course Full Credits goes to them because all i do is just adding “/” add the end and modify it as necessary to use in this site also changed the port to 8090 because coral cache use that port now instead of the old 8080 :)

So here’s the code :

Recommended Software – Ghostwall Personal Firewall

I just found this small personal firewall yesterday while i was searching for an update for the ProcX program. Although in the end i did not get an update for ProcX, i found another good personal firewall (freeware) named Ghostwall by Ghostsecurity

At first i did not believe that there was a personal firewall with only 656 KB because all personal firewall i have tried before have at least of 10MB filesize, and that’s just the setup file before the original program uncompressed

And at last i decided to download and install this small firewall and tested it right away by using online port checking from Gibson Research Corporation website. And i get this result :

This is the old version of my WoW Private Server Guide, the new version that gives you a detailed step (with images) can be found at below links :

  1. Installing MySQL

  3. Just in case you want to create lan party
  4. Setting up the webserver to put registration page

Maybe my previous post about creating WoW private server is a little bit confusing for some people and that’s why i create another post on how to set up world of warcraft private server once again but this time … i promise it is not going to be confusing like before :D … and actually i should be thanking everyone who put comments on my previous post, because of their comments i was able to get new topics for my blog … hahaha

Okay and that’s all on the introduction part … now let’s start the guide, but before that please keep this in mind, this guide tested with 1.12.1 World of Warcraft Client (known as WoW Classic) non modified in any part and tested to work with Mangos Revision 3462, but this guide can also be used if you’re going to create The Burning Crusade server although you’ll need to get different database dump from someone else, and of course getting the newer mangos release :
