i don't think you can without 3rd party tools.

It's a pretty useful feature... but nope, XP doesn't have it. But there are good third party features like Folder Lock.

And that folder lock thing would have spared me some tough times... Eh.

Folder Lock? I'll try to find that.

And Sim, dirty secrets? Never.

I used to have a couple of folders with a password. I don't know if that was with XP, though. I think I pulled it off with "eigenschappen" & that the option is somewhere in there, but yeah.. I've never tried it with XP.

I'm pretty much sure, that if I'd lock folders of mine, people would get reeeeaally suspicious. to the point they'd break up with me.

...I wonder why :p

Well there's not really a reason if you (and him) are the only ones who see it. Unless they are secrets he can't know about.

My problem is that my mom sometimes uses my computer to copy something, or when her net is down and she really needs it, and I don't want her to find certain things.

*giggles @ Izle*

of course there are things on my computer I don't want anyone else to see, not even Him. (with a big fat H, yo) but yeah, I'm not very big on secrets & stuff & I don't want him to be suspicious. I don't want him to feel uncomfortable, because he doesn't deserve that & it isn't necessary. I especially don't want him to be suspicious for reasons I would be suspicious too. *grins* so he's already seen all the weird, creepy, sexy stuff on my computer, snooping around, just because I let him. he even added to the sexy stuff I have on my computer, after he'd seen other sexy stuff. *more grinning*

I'm safe. My parents never use this computer. And my brother rarely does and he's not interested in my "bullshit" as he calls it.

Izie
12-12-2005, 03:14 AM
Well people ARE interested in my comp.

So boo.

Screwed much?

JoY

yeah, kind of. thank god my boyfriend can rationalise/handle a lot.

Izie

I'll rephrase into "e-slut much?" :p

I think MSN also fliters out torrent links and such. Fucking gay. Never knew it would reach such heights of homosexuality.

Wow, MSN really is gay.

...not too much. ;P

Izie

Just a little then :p

JoY

I'd say just about enough. =P

One would think YOU are drunk.

JoY
12-12-2005, 04:32 AM

Izie
12-12-2005, 04:36 AM
I'm not drunk. I just drank.

And that wasn't e-slutting. We were PROPERLY slutting. And it was very... Exciting. According to you :p *wink wink nudge*

I'm not drunk either. I just like that picture!

Christ like you hid it very well. I remember trying to make an avatar and clicking on a very innocent named folder. What made me stay in that folder however, was your very panicked (although calm-sounding) "it's not in this folder." :p

oh how exclusionary this conversation has become.

Tizzalicious
12-12-2005, 06:19 AM
I know, now we are talking about boobz, sexy pics and being drunk.

My question was all innocent.

wheelchairman
12-12-2005, 06:20 AM
I'm tempted to go on MSN now. But I'd still be excluded. I might just nap instead!

Tizzalicious
12-12-2005, 06:21 AM
You confuse me.

wheelchairman
12-12-2005, 06:22 AM
You confuse me.
I hate explaining myself.

You're talking about boobs and sexiness. The moment I go on msn this will stop. So I might as well stay off, or nap!

Tizzalicious
12-12-2005, 06:25 AM
We're not talking about boobz on MSN. There is no one there! I'm all ronery. And I don't talk about boobz to myself.

Well I could go on skype if you are as ronery as you say.

Tizzalicious
12-12-2005, 06:28 AM
I think you should. We can talk about boobz then. If you want.

If you have winzip, then you could just probably compress the folder and add a password to the zip file.

EDIT: I can't remember if you could do that on winzip. I know you could do it on winrar.

If you have winzip, then you could just probably compress the folder and add a password to the zip file.

But then I'd have to unzip it everytime I needed it. Or wanted to add stuff to it...

hahahahahahaha, holy fuck, that was funny.

& we got to see so much more of each other during the rest of the meet-up. *winknudgewinknudge*

seriously though, I used to hide my shit so fucking well, I could never find it back. (kind of important when you want to know where other's *shouldn't* look) so I've started to just put it where it's practical. I'm done with being overly paranoid & prude.
