Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

Having my first go-around with this OS setting up a new PC and NAS device for my parents (I'm still using XP on my own machines). I'm trying to set up the folder structure so that the key parts of each profile and the Public area (Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos) are pointing to areas on the NAS rather than the hard drive, so that they can be accessible throughout my parents' home network without having to manage multiple copies of the data. (The NAS has dual hard drives set up in RAID 1, so backup is taken care of.)

Anyways, I've been successful using this method (hubpages.com) on the folders in the user profiles, but less so on the folders in the Public area. When I get to the Location tab, the buttons below the path are missing and I cannot edit the path by typing. I'm logged in with the only administrator account on the machine, so my guess is I've run into some stupid limitation of the OS that can only be dealt with via a registry hack or something. Anyone out there who's more familiar with the OS than I am who might have a handle on how to do this?

EDIT: Fixed link.

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

It's not an OS limitation as far as I can tell, I have the buttons you're missing on my installs of Windows 7. They are all Windows 7 Ultimate version and I'm logged in as a Domain Admin on my home network. Since you are logged in as an admin as well, I'd take a guess that maybe it's the version of the OS? Maybe.

I know the OS version is Home Premium, so if it is the version of the OS causing the problem, it's still a limitation of the OS, just an intentional one to fry my biscuits. *sighs*

I've been getting one or two spam mails per day the last couple of days in my Gmail, which I found kind of odd, because I don't subscribe to anything with it, I use my comcast account for that stuff.
