What you find when googling "BurnLounge sucks"

I found this great post (among many others) while researching BurnLounge. BurnLounge sounds like a good way to make money as long as you don't mind going to hell. Here's one member's comments, found at indiemusician.com:

"Okay, how about an objective opinion from someone without an axe to grind, who's actually a Mogul, and who is not one of these cultish fan boys?
Here it is:
In January a friend approached me about BurnLounge, so excited he was about to pop. I said sure - why not? That $450 figure is only if you're stupid enough to purchase the utterly useless 'university package.' My initial investment was just $140 or so.
(For those not in the know - the 'university package' is pushed HEAVILY because (OF COURSE!) it makes the guy who sells it to you a nice chunk of change. The only actual money I've seen from BurnLounge came from - you guessed it! - the idiot I signed up who blew $300 on the 'university package.' So what IS the university package? It's a bunch of CD/DVD's that help you convince OTHER people to sign up - sort of like those marketing things you see on 4:00 a.m. infomercials. And yes, you read right. For half a dozen DVD's, you pay THREE HUNDRED bucks. But hey, the guy right above you makes like $50 off your stupidity, so that's cool, right?)
It's now been more than five months since I signed up. I told the pal who got me into it that my own business was far too busy at the moment to do much with it for at least six months (and besides, I actually MAKE money with my own company :) )
So I signed up one guy, and then watched. Just watched to see what would happen. Here's the results:"

Fix Disappearing SendTo "Compressed (Zipped) Folder" in XP

For those who have always relied on WinZip, there's a little-documented feature of Windows XP that lets you unzip and zip folders of files very easily. Just right-click a folder and go to SendTo > Compressed (Zipped) Folder to create a zip archive of the selected folder. If you double-click the icon, it will open seamlessly. To add a password, just open the archive window and go to File > Add a Password...

One problem I've seen is that for some reason, this icon in the SendTo folder has a tendency to disappear. Here's the solution. Type:

rundll32 zipfldr.dll,RegisterSendto into the Run window and run it. The icon will re-appear under SendTo! By the way, it's also a good idea if you first choose Compressed (Zipped) Folders as your default app for opening .zip files. Right-click and go to Open with... to choose this.

I hope this is helpful to someone.
