Resurrected!

Thank God!!! Well, after my carefully placed blog of its death, they have now reconcidered to shut down their awesome URL slimmer. I’d like to think it was because of my blog, oh yeah, you know it! Welcome back tr.im!!! Peace.

Windows 7 RTM and Family Pack!

http://tr.im/vsrL and http://tr.im/vsER Kevin Rose had a big complaint about Windows on Diggnation awhile back, about how many selections there are with Windows and how Apple basically gives everyone everything, then you can opt to not install more.  I agree with this quite a bit, over the years, the Windows OS has become more and […]

Google Chrome OS?

Both posts are from a single source, but here they are to bring you up to speed if you don’t know what it all is. http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/168036/google_set_to_take_on_microsoft_with_desktop_os.html 5 hours later… http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/168058/five_reasons_google_chrome_os_will_fail.html Really? Nope. Nope. Possibly. Nope.  And, Nope.  Just as David Coursey is allowed an opinion, here goes an attempt at mine. 1. Netbooks will be […]

Windows 7 RC and Netflix

So, I love Netflix.  It’s been the long answer we all have been waiting for to get away from the evil Blockbuster empire. It does kill of local movie retal places, but oh well, sometimes times change and new is actually better.  Anyway, so, onto the point.  Windows 7 RC and Media Player 12.  One […]

Windows 7 RC

AT LAST! I’d reference the O face guy from Office Space when it comes to this launch, but I am not quite that douchey.  So, Windows 7 RC released to the technet subscribers today.  Well, the ones who dish them money anyway.  Beats trying to phish through bad torrents for the REAL SLIM SHADY!  Woohoo! […]

Windows 7 Beta 1

I’d like a moment to thank the Dorkinesian that created this theme I am now using.  It’s bloated, takes forever to load, but damnit, it’s fun.  And I am all about fun. So, if you are on dial-up, upgrade! Speaking of upgrading, Windows 7 is released. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/dd353205.aspx Ok, so, that really is news but, I […]

Microsoft Fonts in Ubuntu

http://ubuntu.wordpress.com/2005/09/09/installing-microsoft-fonts/ It’s an old post, but very effective and still useful. Basically, enable the universe repository from within Ubuntu(refer to forums if you need help with this). Open terminal. Run the below: sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts This should allow you to install that package.  At the end of this, it looks like it clears the […]

Zune and Peripherals

Alright. I know, peripherals is a big word.  Thank you Websters. I’d given up on my crusade against being able to play songs on my device while it is plugged into my machine.  I store my music there for a reason, so I can listen to it.  I don’t want to sync it to the […]

WordPress 2.7

WordPress 2.7 Alrighty.  Well, it does appear as if the new revision of WordPress has released.  Might have been awhile ago, but I’ve been neglecting this site for awhile now.  So, without further ado! Initial look and feel of the new Dashboard is pretty damn sexy.  I mean, not as sexy as my girlfriend or […]

Firefox About:Config

Holy shit sticks intarweb! That is supposed to be a play on ‘Holy rusted metal Batman!’ … I know, I suck at humor. Keep reading and enjoy. So!  Firefox.  I’ve grown to really enjoy this browser over time, but there are more and more things about it that increase this as time goes on.  Seems […]
