comment github flavored markdown editor for osx
I actually just bought Marked, but here's a bit warning: Marked is NOT an editor, it is only a previewer! That said, it does indeed look very promising. However, I'm having problems getting it to work with Docter. I also looked at Mou, and while it does look very nice, and I like the side-by-side editing in one app, the fact that there's no way to get it to support the Github flavor is pretty much non-starter for me.

comment Random freezes and boot issues with new MSI P67A-GD65
Followup: I RMA'd (and replaced) the motherboard, no more issues.

Other thing to note though is that registry hacks obviously wouldn't have any effect on the failing BIOS thing.

Thanks for the reply. I already returned the original MB, but I've got a replacement sitting here waiting for me to install it. I'll definitely look into this if I have the same problems. Can you link to any more info on the issue?

comment Hardware upgrade: Windows 7 bluescreens, Vista loads
Well FWIW, I switched from Intel hardware to AMD hardware on a Windows XP installation ~2005-ish and it worked without any issues.

comment Notepad++ is unable to load langs.xml, why?
Win7/64 here. My langs.xml file appeared to be perfectly valid XML. Diffing against langs.model.xml produced a few differences, but it looked like they were all possibly the result of upgrades, as I don't remember making any of the changes. However, even after copying all the differences into langs.xml, it still failed. Replacing langs.xml with a copy of langs.model.xml still didn't help. I ended up just deleting langs.xml, and it seems to stop the error from happening, though there's no syntax highlighting. This is Notepad++ v5.9

comment How do I get a 300Mbps connection over 802.11n?
After just letting it sit for 30 mins or so, I noticed the connections on both my HTPC and laptop had improved to 270Mbps. Odd.

comment Can't watch HD video over local wifi
Yeah, definitely more than 10 feet away... it's around a corner, down a hallway, up some stairs and around another corner... And I rent, so running ethernet isn't really an option.

No, but it should be more than adequate... it's like 750w or something ridiculous.

comment Windows 7 - Can't get my TV working as primary display with nVidia 7900GS
Also, this model has a total of 4 HDMI inputs, I'm just too cheap to buy a cable :D

I'd also like to note that I'm perfectly happy with Magnavox - it's a nice looking TV, has a great picture, and they also replaced the whole thing for free (and extended my warranty for me in order to do so) when the screen went bad on my first set. Since running from component has always worked until now, I'll forgive the lack of a VGA or DVI input ;)

Sorry, I forgot to note that everything was working fine with Vista.

Good points on the A/V issues and overhead. The only reason I wanted to avoid using WMC as the VM host was because it seems more likely that I'd need to reboot (or gasp reinstall!) that OS than the server OS.
