China Has a Massive Windows XP Problem

Aggrajag Discount Win 8.1 (520 comments)

IMHO, the best solution might be a a new round of massive discounts after Windows 8.1 is released. This applies also elsewhere than just China. The only solution to get people to adopt Windows 8 is to get them to upgrade from Windows 7 and a really cheap price like $19.99 is the only option for MS.

Most UK GPs Have Prescribed Placebos

Aggrajag Re:Not a Placebo (240 comments)

Taking a rapid CRP test from a patient should give your wife and other GP's the argument against/for antibiotics. CRP 10 = no antibiotics.

Ask Slashdot: How To Get Old Commercial Software To Be Open-Sourced?

Aggrajag With money? (234 comments)

I've been toying with the idea lately. Create a Kickstarter-type website where companies could ask certain amount of money for a game/program and if the goal is reached they will release the source.

Microsoft Phasing Out Office Starter Edition

Aggrajag Re:Who cares? (132 comments)

I bought a desktop for our nursing station at work. The requirement was: "as cheap as possible" so I got them a basic HP desktop with Windows 7 and Office Starter. Add to that Windows Live Mail and Powerpoint Viewer and everything works perfectly and looks like a regular office PC.

Nursing home where I work at the moment has a extremely tight budget and the money we have goes to taking care of the patients.

AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition: Taking Back the Crown

Aggrajag Re:which OTHER ati card should I buy? (132 comments)

I would recommend HD7770 as it consumes a lot less power compared to HD5770/6770 and the cheapest ones cost around $110 - $120.

Nokia To Cut 10,000 Jobs and Close 3 Facilities

Aggrajag Embrace, extend and extinguish (350 comments)

This looks like the start of the extinguish phase of Microsoft's plan.

As a Finn I am really fucking pissed off at Elop and the Nokia board who let this happen.

I know several Nokia devs and the ones who still have N950 won't even discuss about selling one to me :)

Where Are All the High-Resolution Desktop Displays?

Aggrajag Re:A tad longer than that (565 comments)

I am willing to pay a $500 price premium to any company that is willing to sell me a laptop that has a standard sized keyboard. I type 50 pages of text or code per week. IT IS WORTH IT TO ME

I bought this Acer Aspire for my wife about three years ago for the exact same reason, although hers has a Core i5 instead of AMD.

AMD/ATI Video Drivers: Unsafe At Any Speed

Aggrajag Re:Crappy AMD drivers?! (261 comments)

I've never encountered any major problems with either NVIDIA's or AMD/ATI's drivers on Windows. Just couple of weeks ago I had a GT520 that I installed to a HTPC and just couldn't get it working. Turns out it was the motherboard that wasn't compatible.

OS X LiveDVD

Aggrajag Aggrajag writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Aggrajag writes "The hackers at InsanelyMac have released a nice Tutorial on how to create a bootable OS X Live DVD. "This method provides a way to boot from media that are read-only by diverting all writes to a ramdisk. This means it can be used to boot from a dvd(described here), USB drive, or pretty much any other media. It uses BOOT-132/Darwin as a boot loader and then exploits Apple's netboot and imageboot systems to boot from a disk image." You need an installed OS X to create a live DVD."
