I'm an evil despot with plans to rule the world...

Well, OK, I lied.

I'm actually a Java programmer, although I also dabble in PHP, C#, and C++.

Likes:

  • C#
  • Java
  • PHP

Dislikes:

  • Maven
  • VB.NET
  • Maven (once wasn't enough)
  • JSP
  • Maven (twice wasn't enough)
  • WPF
  • LINQ

If I'm on SO, it's likely because I'm waiting for another Maven compile.

comment Syberia not running under Windows 7
Unfortunately, I never had much luck getting it to work and had to resort to buying the game again from Good Old Games (link omitted so it doesn't look like advertising). I think Steam may also sell Syberia and Syberia 2.

comment Why does Internet Explorer 9 need to close (these) other programs during install and are any changes made to Firefox?
"if they have to why not update/replace files on reboot, and do i quietly." This is how Windows Update usually works, but IE tries to do it without a reboot.

comment Is buying a low powered graphics card with a larger amount of memory worth it?
A few months ago, I saw one brand that had 512MB GDDR5 cards and 1GB DDR3 cards for the same price. I bought the 512MB GDDR5 card.

comment Enhance Video Card
@Mario: Virtualization is used to simulate machines or components less powerful than the one that is doing the virtualization. GPUs in particular are optimized for doing parallel operations. The 9400M has 16 processors... 8 times the number your CPU does.

comment Copy and Paste from Virtual PC has stopped working
I've encountered a similar problem in VPC2007 with a Windows Server 2003 R2 install... it would only sometimes copy things from the VM clipboard to the host clipboard. This was after the Virtual Machine Additions were installed.

comment Now who's using my COM port?
I don't think you can. It only needs one more vote before it gets moved, though.

comment From Vista to XP and Ubuntu installation issue
I know this question is already solved, but was this a stock XP CD, or one with the service packs applied? Prior to XP SP1, there was an issue in XP where it didn't recognize HDDs larger than 137GB.

comment Can I upgrade Vista Systembuilder editions to Windows 7?
Windows X for System Builders (where X is the Windows version, such as XP Home) is the name MS has used for OEM copies for some time now.

comment 4 GB of Ram installed but only 2.97GB usable. What gives?
I'm going to make the wild guess that BFree has a 1GB video card or two 512MB video cards.

This is off topic, but I'm not surprised that a product that is almost an anagram of royalties to require payment. ;)

Which version of Windows was this? I know there are issues before XP SP1 with drives over a specific size, regardless of which partition type it is.
