Making Mr. Computer Last

Filed under: Main — Tags: , — admin @ 12:01 am

Things are looking pretty grim out there economically speaking. People aren’t spending money because people aren’t spending money. That means we all need to hunker down until people tire of not spending money. Here are some suggestions for hunkering down with your aged computer and not spending much money to do so.

The Volume Label

Filed under: Main — Tags: , — admin @ 12:01 am

Most people would think that a volume label would be found by a knob and it would have tick marks going from 0 up to 10 (or maybe even 11). In the realm of computers, however, a volume label is something completely different.

This past Saturday, January 24, the Macintosh turned 25 years old. I thought I’d take a moment to reflect upon my own Mac journey.

A Password to Remember

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

Do you recall the glory days? Back before the Internet, back when Windows lacked a password box at logon? Perhaps you don’t.

Windows 7 Beta Trials, Part III

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

Yes, I have have Windows 7 working on my test computer. It’s much more solid than Windows Vista was at this point in the process, and overall I’m pleased. I still don’t see the masses flocking to upgrade their PCs, though.

Windows 7 Beta Trials, Part I

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

Beta tests. Typically buggy, incomplete software. People excited to get it, boasting about it. Dedicating good, high-end computer hardware. It’s not something I look forward to, but I did it anyway with Windows 7.

Windows 7 La-Di-Da

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

No one knows whether the world economy will implode this year or not, whether those four horsemen of the apocalypse are readying their mounts, or if that big-ass asteroid will hit. What I can say with a modicum of certainty is that you’ll most likely see Windows 7 this fall. It probably won’t save the world.

Reply All: Go To Hell

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

I understand the necessity for a Reply All command in an e-mail program, but I don’t think most of humanity gets it.

The Boring Future

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

Dvorak book cover
I don’t see why people are fussing so much over Steve Jobs and Apple. Mr. Jobs will eventually leave the company. It will go on without him. It won’t be sexy, but then the computer industry hasn’t been sexy in a long time, nor has it really needed Steve Jobs. This was predicted.
