It shouldn't take you too long to find that the various options, switches, and adjustments that allow you to customize Windows are scattered throughout dozens of dialog boxes, property sheets, and add-on utilities. Understandably, this can turn a simple task into a monumental wild-goose chase. The following list contains more than 700 individual Windows XP settings and where to find them.
The settings are listed alphabetically and named in such a way that they should be easy to locate by context. For example, to find out how to turn off the Power Management icon in the Taskbar Notification Area, look under "Taskbar Notification Area, Power Icon." Note that a few settings have been duplicated with different labels to make them easier to find.
Settings made in the Registry (see Chapter 3) are not included here because of their complexity. Most Registry settings can be found by using the Registry Editor's Find tool or by looking through this book.See All Chapters

Interpretation, insight, and working through
To interpret or not to interpret?
Psychoanalysis was defined by Freud (1904a), as we have already seen, as “an art of interpretation” (p. 252), since it was set on the task of “making the unconscious conscious” or, as Pichon-Rivière (1971) used to say, “making explicit the implicit”. Of course, Freud's (1915d) original conception of the unconscious as identical with the repressed seemed to restrict its contents to the set of antisocial or immoral impulses and wishes, and to the most painful or unpleasant memories that had been mercifully forgotten. Any other mental contents of which the subject was not aware really belonged to the pre-conscious, and not to the dynamic unconscious (Freud, 1912g, 1915e). But with his later revision—in The Ego and the Id (Freud, 1923b)—of his theory of the structure of the mind, it became obvious that the unconscious was much wider than the repressed, and that it included not only mental contents, but also mental structures, functions, and processes. Hence, not only the id, conceived as a boiling cauldron of primitive impulses and wishes, but also large parts of the ego and the superego could now be regarded as belonging to the unconscious. So now all kinds of thoughts, beliefs, feelings, arguments, values, decisions, strategies, and assumptions could be a part of the unconscious mental processes and contents, and, consequently, become a valid object for interpretation.See All Chapters

The Spiritual Journey
Give ear, you that rule over multitudes, and boast of many nations.
Jesus cast fire on the earth and he desires the earth to be set ablaze with its brilliant light (cf. Lk 12:49). You must be the bright flame kindled by apostolic zeal; from your bright light other torches must be kindled until the whole world is a vast sea of living flame.

I have seen many things in my travels, and I understand more than I can express.
The more knowledgeable we become, the more we realize our limitations.
The Road of Hope, F. X. Nguyen Van Thuan
Bishop Ngo Dinh Thuc and Bishop Simon Hoa Hien had told Thuan so much about their time in Rome, and Thuan had read so many books about the Eternal City, that even on his first day the city looked familiar. However, Thuan found the actual city far more engaging than the one painted by his reading or conversations with his mentors.See All Chapters

The book has, in the main, been organized chronologically for ease of reference, with the exception of chapter 7 where we tried to give an overview of a developmental approach to understanding personality and mental health. We thought it would be helpful to review what the parents who have spoken about their children say they have learnt about themselves and their children. Five of the children are now adults and enjoy varying degrees of independence: Carol and Patrick need twenty-four-hour care; Kirsty still lives with her parents; Jay lives in a staffed group home; and Neil shares his home with a friend, albeit with a large number of hours of dedicated support. David is still at school.
Most people find parenthood both challenging and satisfying, and we suggest that it is not really so different for parents of young people with learning disabilities. Many of “our” parents seemed somewhat surprised, looking back, to see how much turned out to be not only manageable, but also rather enjoyable and fulfilling. However, Patrick’s parents disagreed:See All Chapters

There are times when it is forcibly brought to one’s attention that Britain is an island. Suddenly becoming aware of the absurdity of such uniquely British experiences as drinking warm beer on a rainy summer afternoon elicits these thoughts, but also being confronted with something that seems fascinating, yet totally un-British, has the same effect. One is shocked by waiters being friendly to children late at night in Italian restaurants, surprised by the remarkable linguistic competence of the Swedes and the Dutch, and stunned by the theoretical virtuosity of French intellectuals. In Daniel Widlocher’s chapter, we are privileged to have been challenged by an outstanding example of this latter form of culture shock.
This expression implies confrontation, but as much of one’s own unquestioned assumptions and habitual modes of thinking as confrontation with the qualitatively different perspective that French psychoanalysis takes to our subject. There is no doubt that British psychoanalysts have to work harder to recognize the subtleties of Widlocher’s thinking than we would have to do in order to identify the unique qualities of a contribution from our own psychoanalytic island. For me at least, this extra effort is well justified by the rewarding opportunity Widlocher offers us to reconsider a question as fundamental as the interface of drive theory and object relations theory.See All Chapters
