Dont know if anyone noticed

as i was looking for Orca (msi editor) i found the emulation of cd drives
but the iso mounting is also possible in xp through a download from ms and have virtual cd-rom drives with a MS driver....

Microsoft makes a tool available so that I can open and view the files in an ISO file. It emulates a CD-ROM drive on my computer.
1. Download the Microsoft Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel package here 2. Extract the files to your desktop, then copy the VCdRom.sys file to your %systemroot%\system32\drivers folder. For most people, this is under C:\Windows\system32\drivers.
3. Open the VCdControlTool.exe file.
4. Click Driver Control
5. Click Install Driver then navigate to the %systemroot%\system32\drivers folder and double-click VCdRom.sys.
6. Click Start.
7. Click OK.
8. Click Add Drive. A drive letter will be added under My Computer.
9. Select an unused drive letter from the drive list and click Mount.
10. Navigate and select to the ISO image file you wish to mount, then click OK. UNC naming conventions should not be used, however mapped network drives should be OK.

Yeah, it was mentioned over in Vistax64 forums that this particular one pretty much sucks.

The latest and greatest Virtual Clone Drive works like a champ, and and Daemon Tools just released a new version of their lite tool (presumably to combat the effects of GTA IV and Securerom....) and there is another one mentioned here on the forums - stick with those.

Also, Orca is also the name of a browser in beta from the makers of Avant browser - but Orca is not based on trident, it is based upon Gecko

Something odd that I noticed
I don't really know if this is a bug or not, but when I hover over an icon on the status bar, the little selection bars stay on the icon I last hovered over. To show you what I'm talking about, here's a picture: I don't really know if that's normal or not, if it is, I just never happened to...

To whoever noticed...
Or, to whoever cares... :huh: I haven't been around lately (Awwww, or maybe others say Yay!) Anyway, finally got back to work (I don't know if that's an Aww or Yay). I hurt my back Feb. 2009 and had been off since last week. So you say, "You haven't really been showing up around here since...
