DD.EXE is used to create an image file from a floppy bootdisk. Do not confuse it with the unix "dd" command it is not quite the same.
Example: dd a: <filename>.img
This will create an image file from your bootdisk in drive A:.
You could also use winimage (not freeware) for this, but remember to save your floppy image as .IMA (not compressed) file.
usefull tool, along with

On that note, is there anyway we can use one problem, (bird-unfriendly slice and dice windmills) to solve another problem, airborne vermin like seagulls, and feral pidgeons that crap all over the place and cost thousands of tax payers pounds to clean up after?
We could even put the wind generators near landfill sites, and on top of local govement buildings in town, bonus points for sending the worst civil servants out to clean them, without head gear.....
Run the feed from local council CCTV's into the bandwidth. You could add so many eyes to the people monitoring the cctv in control rooms, Extend the home watch idea. And scare off the casual vandals who will know that someone is bound to be watching the cameras.
On the other hand, it would show the tax payers, exactly how crap the CCTV cameras they paid for are.
great little rhyme, anyone know who wrote it originaly?
"Shut your mouth and get back in line
and if you don't like it - well it suits us just fine.
WE pull the levers, WE hold the strings
and these are just a few of our favourite things.
Learn the words of the company song
"The right IS right, IS right IS strong".
Come on children all sing along
'cause if you think you can change
you were never more wrong."
Despite years of playing with the latest cheapo smart phones, O2 XDA, HTC TyTN II, iphone, I always kept my nokia 6210,
Yes, ok, it’s got a crack on the screen, so what??
I hit any button, and the screen lights up, dial a number,
(Or use 2 clicks to get the phonebook up, find the number and dial it.),
Talk, listen, hang up, job done.
Or use 1 click, type in a sms, and then send it,
No frills, no thrills, no satnav, no decent games, no mp3s, no mobile internet, no battery life measured in hours instead of weeks.
My area manager is better, he gets his phones from work, all the other bosses get the latest toys, and he keeps his 6310i despite the pleas of his bosses, to upgrade, for just this reason, the nokia 6 series, "just works".....
I got to get me a 6310i though, Bluetooth is much better than using a db9 data cable.
<Cough> logos and ring tones, db9 cable, logo manager, 6210, instant job security…… <cough>
I work in a supermarket. We get blank "grass up your customers that have bought a tv forms" that we fill in for every tv or tv recieving hardware, we sell. Anyone want to guess how many tvs my local mp (i did not vote for him) "bought" in the past 5 years????
Anyone want to send their local mp, a free letter from the tv licensing mob???
who cares about googe privacy, i just enjoy google's aproach to adverts, and screen real-estate, i can enjoy and ignore google adverts if i see them, what i truly hate, as do lots of low level users like me, is banner adverts, lets face it, google uses targeted, text, adverts. who cares? we can ignore them, its the banner. java skript, full page pop ups, we hate..... id rather have googles descrete, ignorable adverts.
franc, not a uber-leet educated techy person.
playing doom, after a hard days work, god mode and chainsaw, or gode mode and rocket launcher. Using a mod to replace the demons faces with people from work, was the iceing on the cake. (and lucrative once people at work found out, and asked me for copies of the modified version, with the managers face on the demons.)
I work in a supermarket, I'd love to see the childlock being marketed or better, used, esp on all the screaming brats that run round the place causing chaos, that we cant touch. Although the last time I offered to let a parent borrow a spare dog leash/collar for their wild running kid, they were very offended.
every goverment department, bank. shop etc seems to be happily loosing laptops. cds and bin bags, full of peoples personal information, then all the utiity companys quite happily send everyones information to which ever country they have outsourced the helpdesk to this month. Why bother protecting your own data, when the people paid to look after the data properly are just giving it away.
Shame the BOFH, cant go to Westminister, to fix their current computing problems.
Complaints from the mp's would go right down, after the first few examples....
ditto complaints about the mp's from voters <grin>
