For two days in the shelter heads of the tram stop opposite the station in Pescara this Black Screen of Death "that prevents all users of the tram government operation to do business in the rapid and fast
and nobody does anything to solve. And to think that it would take an F1 on the keyboard or change the backup battery of the bios. But you know, when Windows is in the middle, you can not expect more.

In any self-respecting geek should not be missing a font that resembles to a precise his writing. But how do you make such a font to use then in various programs such as, for example, Microsoft Word?
Nothing could be easier as you can see from the example below that uses the font derived from my writing
First you download a template that is then printed and then when you write, box by box, the letters on with his writing. This, for example, is my font from which it derived the above
The template with your writing must be scanned and posted on the site and then, magically you will be able to download the font on. Double click and the font is installed and is immediately usable in all your programs.
Nothing could be easier, and from that moment on, all the things you write will have your personal stamp.
May 26 7 Days with Windows 7
E 'over a week since I installed on my computer at home and the office's new operating system for home Redmont driven by curiosity, by the news that circulated online about the proper functioning of this Release Candidate Build 7100, and the fact that it is freely downloadable and usable in the Ultimate version and then in the most complete version of what will be then that future packaging of this product.
The downloaded version will expire on first giugno 2010 but, from the first March 2010, in order to push the purchase of a commercial version, the computer will begin to stop every two hours.
But until that date, no time to enjoy a full new product and decide whether to make the big leap or not.
Obviously, in a week of use are so many things that I noticed that I liked and now I am going to bring back with one key caveat: being jumped directly from Windows XP to Windows 7 and Vista are not having completely missed a very practical about functionality present in previous Microsoft OS I do not know if some new feature for me has been introduced in Windows 7 or was already present in Vista. If you find anything about it please notify me.
The first thing that jumps off the screen during the installation of Windows 7 is its simplicity and efficiency. few questions, well placed and a few choices without any problems, inaccuracies or possible misunderstanding.
The installation goes down smoothly and is able to have a car running in a very short time. The second thing that surprises is the list of compatible drivers already present in this operating system. On two computers that included RAID cards, video cards of last generation, dual and quad core, dual monitors, and more, Windows 7 has automatically recognized all the hardware without asking absolutely no external driver.
The only case of "incompatibility" was with my CanoScan D660U, compatibility, however, due generally to all 64bit systems, so that does not apply to this operating system in particular and explicitly stated by Canon. Problem solved by installing the scanner within a Windows XP on a virtual machine.
For the rest, all the programs that I had previously installed worked fine on Windows 7. The only foresight is relative, only in certain cases to different management of the registry under different accounts for which, sometimes, you must give the administrator of the Program. But a stroke of the right mouse button and you're done.
Another positive surprise is obtained at the start of the operating system and is related to the speed of ignition of the PC. The time is very short even after you install a lot 'of applications. I'm talking about time under a minute, since the ignition when you have the ability to launch and use a full program such as Microsoft Word.
If we use the features of Hibernate (and I see no reason not to use it), the time down to under 30 seconds are respectable numbers, if you will.
The "Start" menu now not using it almost more or better is used only for research and application for starting the same
The Quick Launch bar was attached to inteligente taskbar. In the same area now appear, in fact, both applications running, both for the Quick Launch
You see in the image above from left to right, for example, "Explorer" and "IE" present but not running in your taskbar, Firefox and Thunderbird running, other applications have as quick start and the last, the Paint, in performance but that, once closed, it disappears from the taskbar as not included as "application faster." The taskbar is very useful because, for example, you can access a sort of "Favorites" for that application. If, for example, you right click on "Explorer" or "IE" to access a list of recent folders or the last visited websites with the ability to block some of these "Favorites" to have them always on the list .
Gadgets are well made and occupy very little resources
and you can download more from the site on.
Finally, the standard has been integrated into a graphics program, the replacement of the old paint that wash
ra on classic GIF / JPEG / PNG, and also is smart enough to automatically adjust the output format for the type of image that we're going to save by offering, for example, the excellent PNG for images with few colors, and JPEG for photos
and two indispensable utilities that had to be first on the network, one for taking snapshots of parts or all of the monitor, called "Snipping Tool"
and, dare I say finally, the necessary post-it to avoid clutter our desk with all those yellow slips. Now we can clutter up our monitors
There would be many other things to say, but for now I leave you with this brief glimpse sure that, for now, on two PCs, I am fully satisfied with how it is behaving this Windows 7. Maybe you again in 7 days .
January 22 To install. NET 3.5, close the setup
Apparently, during the weekend, some pious soul took pity on the restart the totem. Too bad that did not have enough patience to wait until it finishes booting.
Behold, as they are today poor Totem
Going to make this poor PC to easily reach the much coveted desktop?
At first you might think dressed up, "See how they were good. They pulled an old PC, we have placed over a fine Linux distribution than you think to dart machines as well dated, like VectorLinux, and with this we have done on a totem informative. "
All good, except that he did not use Linux, and the results are
At this point I'm thinking it would be more humane to leave the computer to a swift and painless death rather than this slow and painful agony
I do not think that will install and use Vista until I am really forced. But the fact that Vista should plan and that requires at least double the hardware resources than Windows XP and even then the benefits are not comparable is a well known fact.
It 'so good that Microsoft itself has written a document with some guidelines on how to speed up Windows Vista.
Too bad that these guidelines are really pathetic. It seemed for an instant replay of one of our business that when speaking with a customer who has problems on the computer the first things he says are
- have done the scandisk?
- 've done the defrag?
- you updated with Windows Update
- have updated the antivirus
and if one of these answers is "no" answer is, "then eh! Make the point X, and all would.. "
E 'practice which Microsoft recommends for faster Vista, defrag often, as if Vista does not do this to her already, delete the programs that never use, like running a program not affected the performance of the machine and as if the uninstall rimuovesse all keys in the registry program removed.
Other tips on the edge of ridicule are the use Disk Cleanup to clean temporary files and compress old files in use, add extra memory (and thanks to cabbage), buying a new PC (I can not find the pre-printed request forgivable loan to Microsoft),
Last advice, rebooting Vista often. And fortunately they said that one of the improvements in Vista was the fact that the suspend was the recommended shutdown method.
Short, this time with Vista Microsoft has made a real hole in the water.
Look deeper, you can read this analysis, in English, of why the advice of Microsoft are nothing short of ridiculous.
Today a friend of mine, that came back from Sweden, needed to make passport photos to apply for a passport. Given that during the lunch break we are often guests at a shopping center was of course the attempt to use the automatic coffee center, to make these photos.
Attempt failed miserably because the machine in question had an unspecified "existential problem.
I do not recognize the friendly operating system that equips this machine (Windows XP) but we do not do too much expectation.
Today, a passport photo machine unusable, a car tomorrow, tomorrow still a plane and then ... the world UHAUHAUHAUHA.
