What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Line 7 has a REG file which increases the Balloontip timeout. You need to modify that script in order to reduce the timeout.

For some reason it doesn't work. I tried decreasing the time of the balloons as you suggested...

I also even tried disabling them and they still show up. I used a program called "X-Setup Pro" to completely disable them.

What is the problem here...very odd. I'm using Windows XP SP2. When I was using SP1 it left the balloons open until I closed them manually. I thought they were supposed to time out by default....can someone verify that?

Any input or ideas is/are appreciated.
