I just created it:
I don't know if I'll use it, but at least I made sure I own it as there started to be too many "ciuly"s out there.

I just discovered that as with many antispam fileters, mine is also interpreting clean emails as spam. :|
I found at least 2 such cases, one of them involving the "cialis" term. It seems there are some words that actually contain that word like "specialist". seems I have to loosen up s few search regexp strings.

did you read the note on that page? Smiley

Note: works with GigaByte mainboards. maybe others, don't know.

the thing with WMI is that in order to have a certain functionality, one must have a WMI provider installed to provide that functionality. So, in order to read CPU temperature using WMI, you must have a WMI provider for your mainboard which will provide a class with that functinality. Class which can be called in any way. I suspect that the G from GTemperature coems from Gigabyte Wink
bottom line, you must find the class for your mainboards wmi provider that provides the CPU temperature. I never did try to find something generic. From what I remember, there are some WinAPI functions that can do this too. WMI_TemperatureProbe works on some systems as well. you just need to find the one taht works on your system. and if you try doing something for all systems, then you need to eitehr find something generic, OR, find most of the WMI classes and loop through them Smiley

Testing the code on this page ...

... i returned an error "Invalid class" when running these lines...
strQuery := 'SELECT * FROM __InstanceCreationEvent within 5 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "'+className+'"';
Services.ExecNotificationQueryAsync(SinkClasses.DefaultInterface, strQuery, 'WQL', 0, nil, nil);

... using Delphi 2007 (the variable "className" defined as "GTemperature").

Note: I imported the type libraries "Active DS Type Library 1.0" and "Microsoft WMI Scripting Library 1.2"

As you can read on the main page of my new (and not yet working) service, , I started a new battle in my war against spam.
I expect the system to be live in a few weeks, before the end of the month.

I forgot to mention how the upgrade process went Smiley

So, I opened up the PC (a DELL) and noticed that they only put 2 power cables and 2 data cables in it, one for 1 hdd and 1 for the cd-rom. Switching one of the datacables with another one which had a plug for slave was easy, but in order to solve the power problem, I had to cut the power cables, remove a power cable from a burned out power source and mix/tie/whatever the cables together.
The other problem was that thye didn't put any place for a second hardrive (which was as expected since there wasn't extra power and data plug for it). So I solved this issue by placing a plastic something on top of the existing hdd and placing the second hdd on top of the plastic, then tieing them together and also to the wall of the PC so that the second hdd will not move. I should have made a picture :|

I just installed an 80GB IDE harddisk. Considering that the primary hdd is about 6GB "big", I can say this is quite an improvement.
For those who missed it, currently my servers is a:
- Pentium III running at
- 500 Mhz with
- 256 MB ram and
- one 6 GB hdd and one 80 GB hdd
the rest is unimportant.
This is my 3rd server. My first one was a Pentium I if I recall correctly. My second was (well, is) a Pentium II.

So, a small spoiler Cheesy In the following 1-2 weeks I will get my older server back online again, as a secondary, backup server, for some of my services. It will be located in anotehr city so it's a good choice. More info after that's up and running Wink

I started getting this error "Cannot find a valid peer process to connect to" when attempting to resume a suspended virtual machine. For whatever reason, this happened after a I have used acronis disk director to merge a partition to the partition on which the visrtual machines reside to gain more space. It could be only a conincidence though.
Anyway, After trying a few times to resume/power on the vm and also restarting vmware client (VMWare workstation ACE edition) I closed the workstation, restarted all services one by one and then started up the workstation again. I found the virtual machine powered on (in the powered on list) but not viewable. if I took a screenshot it clearly showed it was running. So, since I could not interact with the machine, I suspended it again, then resumed and everything was back to normal.
This happened once yesterday and once just now. In both times I've done the above steps and got the same results so it appears this is a workaround the problem.
