Mac February 28, 2009

I have finally bought a Mac! I was planning to buy it when I used iMac for couple of minutes back in 2006, because it looked nice both outside and inside — the interface of Mac OS seemed very beautiful to me. The two problems preventing me to buy a Mac were absence of Macs [...]

Wi-Fi at home September 15, 2008

I now have a wireless connection at home and can connect to the internet also using my PSP. Very convenient. And the device is decent too: it has 4 LAN ports, .11g Wi-Fi and a nice admin’s panel. The only con of this piece of hardware is its price — it is twice as expensive [...]

Never ever use Windows Live Photo Gallery July 11, 2008

If you just need a simple and fast image viewer — use XnView and never ever use the sluggish Windows Live Photo Gallery (what a long name!) on Windows XP. Why? Because it is so slow — even in my 3.3 GHz Core 2 Duo and 2 Gb of RAM it takes about 2 seconds [...]

Internet software, eh? June 15, 2008

I was browsing Microsoft Encarta using Firefox today and decided to listen to Uzbekistan’s anthem. I open the corresponding page and I get this: Since when browsers are called “Internet software”? The definition is a bit archaic, IMHO.

Upgrading my PC: Step N May 31, 2008

Core 2 Duo’s stock cooler was not good enough to chill my overclocked CPU and was a bit noisy, and after doing an extensive research I decided to get a new cooler: Scythe (pronounced /ˈsaɪð/) Mugen (formerly known as Infinity) — Scythe’s flagship cooler. I didn’t think it was that huge. Check it out:

FF3 continued May 26, 2008

Firefox 3 is faster than FF2 — that’s the only good thing I saw in FF3. All other things made me fall back to FF2, at least at work. Because most of the extensions don’t work and even those which work are in early beta state, therefore unreliable. And I also need the legacy zooming [...]

Firefox 3 May 18, 2008

Firefox 3 RC 1 has been released recently. I was very sceptic about upgrating to a pre-release version of my favourite browser because I used every day with a lot of very important plug-ins. That’s why I had not upgrdaed until today when a release candidate became available to download. After upgrading almost all of [...]

The first game I bought online May 5, 2008

I bought a game online for the first time 2 days ago. Sure, I used to buy games offline, and online too, but then I just bought a CD-key for an MMORPG called Guild Wars through eBay. Just a CD-key. But this time the game is distributed online and one have to download it afterwards. [...]

Windows Vista source code revealed April 7, 2008

Downgrading to Windows XP April 3, 2008

I decided to downgrade to Windows XP Professional from Vista Ultimate, because Vista was a resource hog and sluggish. I tried to install XP to disk D: in parallel with Vista (on disk C:), but I couldn’t. XP passes the DOS-based file copying part of the installation, reboots and says “Error loading operating system” and [...]
