I like ale.

I try and get computers to do what I tell them with varying degrees of success.

I've told the Playstation what to do, I've yelled at a PC via DirectX and OpenGL and I've even written shader assembly code.

Until recently I was working in java, C++ and Flex trying to get cross platform software to behave properly and now I am dipping my toes in the C# world working on digital delivery tools for the games industry.

One day when I get chance I will look at mobile development but that might have to wait until tomorrow....

Thanks. I can't confirm if this would have fixed it as I no longer have access to the machine. Seems sensible advice though.

comment Disk boot failures (Vista)
I think the idea behind it is that it is an "all or nothing" tool so it either works & you get your data back (drive fixed or at least working well enough to rescue data...) or it doesn't. Having checked out their site, they offer a 30 day money back guarantee so might be worth looking at anyway? grc.com/cs/licenseinfo.htm

comment Nt4.0 Printer Driver not compatible with Vista?
Thanks. I tried that but the only driver I have for the printer is a kernel mode driver and Vista refuses to install it and the actual printer isn't on the list.
