REALLY small linux devices and a slut of an OS

Ooo... shiny!

Windows Visa, Slut Edition! (yes VISA! Because one needs a visa to pay for the OS and all the new hardware that it needs to run...)

Why Johnny Can't Code

Got this brilliant article off slashdot:

I remember Basic. Could never get the programs to work though, although I think the programs in the books from the public library and my version of basic weren't compatible for some strange reason... I don't think that any of you know how much I now wish that I could have gottenthose programs to work.

Just imagine: a 6 or 7 or 8 year old coder. How elite is that???

Happy 50th Birthday Harddrive!!!

The harddrive turned 50 yesterday. Check out the links:

The second link is quite interesting. For instance, dis you know that Al Shugart worked on the original HDD and also founded Seagate, the biggest HDD maker? Or that the first HDD, a RAMAC unit, weighed a ton. Literally. (Not sure if it was a metric or imperial ton though, guessing imperial. Flipping Americans... ;-)

Many happy returns Mr. Platter!

top For Windows

Just found out a windows equivalent of top, the process/tasklist viewer. It's called tasklist.

Drop down to your command prompt/shell (Start -> Run -> "cmd") and type in "tasklist /v"

Thanks to and

A more personal update coming soon...
