LMAO - it really gets noisy after a while. It's a hoot. Nice one.

comment What Windows virtual machine (VM) software for a development environment?
Very good point about the graphics support in VMs. I suspect the boot from VHD is a boon for that sort of thing. Not sure though, I've not done it yet.

comment What Windows virtual machine (VM) software for a development environment?
Very valid point; virtualisation was switched off in the BIOS and I had to enable it in order to get 64-bit support in the VM. I've heard good things about booting from virtual hard drives (VHDs), but VirtualBox has ticked all my boxes so far.

comment What Windows virtual machine (VM) software for a development environment?
Yes, I have tried it now at last. I was impressed that I managed to install 64 bit Windows 7 on a VM running on the same (Windows 7 64 bit). I like how it switches between host and VM; it's very nicely designed, and the dynamic drive size is excellent as well.

comment Is there a way to export Microsoft Messenger custom emoticons?
Slightly quirky interface, and a little unsettling to enter my unique passport ID, but ? explains why (that ID is used as a key for the encryption). Export has worked. I assume restore will, but will return here if it doesn't.
