Great submission Coldplayer. Thanks for following the rules closely and setting a great example for this contest. Since you are the first I will let this slide on your entry but in the future participants should avoid embedding email addresses or paypal references. A single, "tasteful", low-profile link to your website in the article or in your sig. is allowed.

just under 4 days left, good luck everyone!

I guess delete my post ALL of them. CP says I cut and pasted, from another site.

He has no idea that I have been working on computers since 1994 and use the 2 text files in my home. I suppose none of your Ideas are listed in any other place either huh CP?

I withdraw from contest and forum, thank you.

Relax Blacklisted, we are not going to ban you (will be keeping an eye on you though). We do not encourage plagiarism here at vistahelpforum, although we do support freedom of information. I admire your humility in this situation. We accept your withdraw from contest. You should consider writing a short tutorial of your own. We will even consider re-inclusion to the contest if your original tutorial kicks some serious ass.

I never suggest the material wasn't sound, good advice for tweaking an XP machine. However you didn't write it yourself, therefore unfair to those who have written their own.
