The proper response to that sort of idiocy is to go to the steakhouse for lunch today.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason? Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful? --Zachris Topelius

So, I want to look in to using group policy to run something on start up. A google gets an article for XP. It says 'you're using Windows 8, go to the windows 8 centre'. So I go. It takes me to a general page. There's a search box. I search, and find tons of articles. None for Windows 8, they all link back to that page.
Happened to me yesterday. I was looking for some information about hosted network and ad hoc wireless network and google link was for XP. MSDN quickly found out I was not on XP and gave me a link. It took me to landing page for any W7 related help. Before I noticed anything on that page, I closed it and went back to google for more specific search. Worked like charm.

Reminds me of a time 15-20 years ago in Phelps WI, me and a buddy went up ice fishing and the windchill was some ungodly value somewhere in the vicinity of -65°F, I've never worn so many layers of clothes, my glasses actually froze to my face ,caught some nice walleye though.
I think the heat might be getting to me. I just posted a message in Sugs and Bugs about a message I saw posted with a weird time stamp. After further investigation I discovered that the current year is 2014 Hopefully I removed the post before anyone noticed.

You know that each new year there are some resolutions done... my wife has just decided to double use the elliptic cardio machine we have in the home office, I trust her, I know she will (I'm worried about having to use that hell machine by myself (which I believe it's in her plans)).
Having said that, time to make the question:
I'd love to be able to remove a small TV we have in the office and replace it by our PC capturing the TV signal (we have a 24" screen in the computer which would be much better than the one on the small TV).
Having that old capture card, I wanted to install it, but, it's become a problem as in the card manufacturer there is no drivers for Windows 7 and the ones for the XP OS are not working on 7.
I was posting that here just to see if anyone here had done something similar before and could offer some help...
It seems it has a Philips chip installed but I could not offer more information apart of:
AVERMEDIA AVER TV STUDIO 307 PCI card inputs: analog TV + FM + remote + composite video. outputs: sound jack.
After searching the net for information I've found plenty of Russian pages (which I don't understand and that link to "strange" files). I've also found a Microsoft TechNet publication in which someone was recommending to get the solder and remove some soldered parts on the card... I've tried to use drivereasy to automatically find the right drivers but it has not worked. Also I've tried to use the XP drivers in windows 7 but no luck.
Any idea? Apart of going to the shop to get an usb card for 20$ which is something I could think about...
