If it consumes electricity, chances are good that I worked with it or at least know about it. SysAdmin and Programmer, worked with Basic and PHP as well as with Delphi. My current bread and butter is C# and JavaScript. I like to do Commodore 64 development as a hobby and dabbled in XNA for prototyping purposes.

I'm also on Twitter and I have a blog.

comment Restrict print copies on a PDF
Just to add one more nail to the coffin: What about printing to a Printer like the Microsoft XPS Printer or to any other PDF Printer - that gives me an unprotected, digital copy anyway.

comment Burnt SATA Drive
Indeed. As said, that is very well possible, but from my experience rather rare. I mainly dealt with hard drives that were struck with lightning, not with some that were directly connected to power.

comment Is it possible to force a C# application compiled with the “Any” architecture tag to run as a 32 bit application on 64 bit windows?
Just for the sake of completeness: That will actually modify myapp.exe, so keep a backup around if you want it to run in 64-Bit at some point.

comment How can I upgrade from Vista 32-bit to Vista 64-bit?
@Stevo3000: Which part of the contract? The OEM License only states that you may not use it more than once: "Alternative Versions. The software may include more than one version, such as 32-bit and 64-bit. You may use only one version at one time.".

comment What happened to the B: drive in Windows and why does the hard drive default to C?
By the way: C: is traditionally the first hard drive, but it does not need to be the system drive, you can happily install Windows on F: or I:, it's just hard (if not impossible) to change the Windows Drive Letter after installation.

comment Windows Home Server Hangs on Restart (HP Mediasmart EX485)
Running Memtest maybe a problem though as the MediaSmart does not have any Monitor Output, no serial console and no other way to get it's video output without soldering in a VGA Socket. But yes, if you have another PC to test the RAM in, that would be an option for sure (that's how I found my error)

comment Can the Internet work without DNS?
Sounds more like material for 69.59.196.212 erm... I mean serverfault.com. There, they can explain about how DNS names are easier to memorize, complain about the complexity of IPv6 and talk about how load balancing allows mapping one host name to X servers, how host headers work etc. etc. :-)

comment What elements make you choose a browser?
By brain is trained to ignore them nowadays. And if I would have used an AdBlocker, I wouldn't have my current job, but that's a different story.

If you call this "Getting carried away", you should look at some of the Big World of Warcraft Multiboxing installations :D

comment Get Fragmentation of a Drive on Vista?
Not exactly what I was looking for, but still upvoting and accepting because it has the one function I really want: The ability to defrag a single folder, and it's free - Nice!
