I recently downgraded my Windows Vista test machine back to Windows XP. Because I know this interests folks, I thought I’d explain How I Did It.

My Disdain for April Fools

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

As a peruser of technical information, I hope that you survived April Fools day. I had a tough time of it. That’s for two reasons: I enjoy reading honest and good information about technology, and I absolutely abhor April Fools pranks.

There are volumes to be had about e-mail etiquette, or the manners and rules surrounding the sending and receiving of electronic missives. The bottom line is that you don’t want to accidentally tick someone off. So how can you tread that invisible line?

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

Revving Up a DOS Box

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

Do you miss DOS? (Get it: MS-DOS? Ha!) You probably don’t. If you knew what I know about DOS, you’d wake up every day and pray thanks to the computer gods that it’s no longer around. But, then again, DOS had some really good software. There are also some pioneering games that I remember fondly.

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

One of my favorite authors passed this week. Arthur C. Clarke died in his home in Colombo, Sri Lanka this past Tuesday. I really enjoyed reading his stories when I was a teenager. Even on my last business trip, I read another one of his books.
