What Microsoft needs to do about Windows

So, recently I got a new computer at work. It's not really new - the hardware is a year old, but it's new to me. I asked for Vista on it since I was using Vista before on my aging Dell GX270. All I have to say is WOW. It makes such a difference to run Vista on capable hardware. I had no problems with vista on my aging GX270, even though boot-up was slow so I was not a hater.Thinking about Vista's problems,

Video Game Fridays: F15 Strike Eagle (GB)

This is probably the weirdest game I've ever bought (by itself - not part of a bundle).F15 is a flight simulator game where you pilot an F15 and go out and complete missions (I think this one took place during desert storm). Now I never was a flight simulator person. I would play a flight sim if I bought it as part of a package (just so I felt that my money wasn't wasted), but I never really went

What I would like to see in Canola

OK, now I know that it's easy for people who don't code to be sofa commentators on what they would like to see in software packages, but I will do so anyway ;-)I've been using canola a lot in the past few weeks as my media player of choice when I am using my N800 as a PMP and not as a tablet for browsing. Canola is a great piece of software that's missing some user interface elements, or some functionality

The lost art of letter writing

I wrote a few days ago about the need to write emails as a means of communication when we have SMS, blogs, microblogs, flickr and friendfeed to keep our friends and relatives up to date with our comings and goings. Now, when I was in High School, and I had recently moved back from Greece, I had started to write letters to two or three friends of mine. My address became known and soon more friends had

Οι παλιές καλές μέρες: Apple IIgs

Αν και με το Apple II δεν έπαιξα πολύ, με το Apple IIgs έμαθα να προγραμματίζω χρησιμοποιώντας την γλώσσα Apple BASIC. Μπορώ να πω πως το Apple IIgs κατοικεί μια ιδιαίτερή θέση στην ιστορία της πληροφορικής μου. Το Apple IIgs που είχαμε στην τάξη

Television Tuesdays: ReGenesis

Another Freebie on Hulu. This series is a Canadian series centering around NorBAC, a collaborative research laboratory between the US, Canada and Mexico. They are like the CDC on steroids. If there is an unexplained infection of virus, they're there!Each season has an overarching disease they are fighting (or trying to find its origins) while injecting other personal issues into the mix, such as the

Is firewire going the way of the dodo?

With Apple's removal of FIrewire 400 from all laptops, and complete removal of the port from the MacBook line, I am wondering if the firewire port is going the way of the dodo. I hope not because it's an technology!

2 χρόνια μετά τρέλας

Βασικά έχουν περάσει δύο χρόνια από τότε που άρχισαν τα τρελά με την πρώην αφεντικίνα οπότε είπα και εγώ πως είναι η κατάλληλη στιγμή να γράψω ένα ή δύο λόγια για το τι έγινε, πώς έγινε και πώς καταλήξαμε στα τρελά γεγονότα

Οι παλιές καλές μέρες: Apple II

Όταν ήμουν στο γυμνάσιο είχαμε μερικά παμπάλαια Apple II που τρέχανε AppleDOS.  Η αλήθεια είναι πως δεν τα χρησιμοποιούσαμε για να δημιουργούμε έγραφα αλλά παρά μόνο να παίζουμε κάτι εξίσου παλαιά παιχνίδια εκπαιδευτικά που είχε
