C:\Program Files\X-Fonter\Collectionwith a lot of .xfl files. I copied the contents of that folder to
\Program Files (x86)\X-Fonter\Collectionson the new laptop.
An X-Fonter XFL file is just a text file that lists the location of fonts
that are in a font collection. For instance, my wife has a "Celtic" collection.
The information for that collection is stored in
on her old system, contained the following lines:

She had copied all of the fonts to her new laptop, but now they were in
a different location. Now they were in
C:\Users\Username\Documents\Computer & Desktop\Fonts\Collection\l
D:\\Computer & Desktop\Fonts\Collection\l,
with l representing the letter at the beginning of the font name. That
was just the convention she used for organizing her fonts.
So I needed to update the location for all of her fonts in the XFL files on
the laptop. I wasn't able to edit the files from her account util I changed
the security permissions on the
(x86)\X-Fonter\Collections directory. To change the security permisions
on the directory in Microsoft Vista, take the following steps.
You can then edit the XFL files from the account to make any needed changes, rather than being forced to only make changes from the administrator account.
I edited the .xfl files with Windows Notepad using its "replace" function to replace the old location with the current location for her fonts. Then when I opened X-Fonter, clicked on the Collections tab, and selected a collection by clicking on it, I could see the font listed under Font Example and the font was shown in the right pane of the X-Fonter window rather than seeing "Font not Found" under Font Exmple and just a default font in the right pane of the X-Fonter window. If X-Fonter is displaying "File not Found" in the Font Example field, you can right click on the "File not Found" message and choose Properties to see where X-Fonter is expecting to find the font.
Note: If you have X-Fonter open when you edit an XFL file, you will need to close X-Fonter and reopen it for it to see any changes you have made to the XFL file.
She also wanted her bookmarks copied. On her old Windows XP system, her
bookmarkes were stored in
I couldn't find a file with that name on her new laptop running Windows Vista
after Winamp was installed on it. So I asked her to create a bookmark in Winamp
while she was logged into her account. I then searched the system again and
Winamp.bm file was created in
C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Winamp, where Username
was her account name on the laptop. I deleted that file and copied the one
from the old system to that location. Note: at first I left the just recently created
Winamp.bm file there and pasted in the one from the other system, but
that just created a shortcut to the one on the old system, so I deleted
the existing one and then copied in the other one. When I opened Winamp on the
new laptop, all of her bookmarks were accessible.
!}fmtto reformat the paragraph. But that doesn't work when I'm using Vim on Windows. But I can use
gqat the beginning of the paragraph on a Windows or Linux system to reformat a paragraph. When I then use the downward arrow key to move down in the document, the paragraph reformats.
Michael Jackson died on June 25. Spammers are already trying to capitalize on his death by referencing it in their spam messages. Mcafee's TrustedSource site reports the following at Michael Jackson News Affects Web Traffic
The announcement of Michael Jackson.s death has caused immediate effects on the Web 2.0 world. The impact ranged from the interruption on Facebook of coverage of Farrah Fawcett.s death to a surge experienced by Twitter. The Web 2.0 world is definitely abuzz with traffic regarding his passing.
Within hours the percentage of “long-tail” URL traffic associated with Michael Jackson was growing. It peaked around 1 p.m. Eastern time today and now seems to be dropping. These URLs contained mostly generic information about Jackson-blogs, posts, tributes, photos, and collections of his entertainment past. And, yes, some even contained links to malware or rogue anti-virus software.
How do people find these URLs? We.ve seen spam, tweets, blog postings, group postings, and even mobile phone alerts. In addition, as predicted by Avert Labs, we.ve seen search-engine optimization (SEO) in action. There were several attempts to capitalize on redirecting users to known malware-serving sites associated with other SEO campaigns. We found it interesting during our research to see how fast some of the search engines seemed to respond to this. One popular keyword search done around 9 p.m. yesterday showed seven of the top 10 links going to some of these well-known malicious servers. That same search done an hour later showed only one of the top 10 involved.
As the entertainment industry continues to pay tribute and homage to Jackson, we expect that spam and SEO efforts will grow over the weekend. Eventually a new piece of news will replace this event, and there will be a new story-with much the same results.
My wife got email this morning with a subject of "Michael Jackson dead? NO!!!". Withing the message was the following text:
Michael Jackson dead? NO!!!
Open attached file and read!!!
There was an attachment with the message,
Michael Jackson Live!.html
. I saved the attachment to the hard drive and opened it with a text
editor. There was only one line in it, which is shown below:
<meta http-equiv='Refresh' content='0; url=http://addfamous.com/' />
If you opened the file in a web browser, that line would cause your
browser to "refresh" the webpage you opened, but using the
The spam message my wife received was listed at Michael Jackson dead? NO!!! on Spam me! Send me your spam messages!, a site which states "In a normal situation you should definitelly not want such thing in your e-mail inbox, however, this website is meant to do exactly the opposite: get as many spam messages as possible, clean them of any harmful stuff (adult images, links to dubious websites and others) and present them to you to research or whatever you want them for."
I didn't visit the addfamous.com site, but out of curiosity, checked its reputation at various web reputation sites.
I issued a query for addfamous.com at TrustedSource. Unfortunately, that site was experiencing difficulties when I checked and simply returned "Service currently not available (3), please try again later!"
I issued a query for addfamous.com at the McAfee SiteAdvisor® site. It returned "Our analysis found that this site may be promoted through spammy e-mail." It also reported "This site has been queued for testing. Please come back soon for automated results."
I also checked the reputation of the site using Barracuda Central's IP / Domain Lookups tools. Barracuda Networks sells antspam appliances. I clicked on the Domain Reputation tab and put in

on Barracuda's Intent Block List."

I can then check the version number using the command
pkginfo -l SMCapru:
