I stay with XP

As you probably know, there is no way to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7. You can find a lot of articles in the web that explain you how to do that, but it is not a real upgrade but a clean install where you can preserve some of your settings and files in the best of cases.

Solved: Ubuntu 9.10 does no...

Since this issue gave me quite a headache over the weekend, and since I eventually solved it, I decided to share the solution on my blog to avoid that someone else may waste time as I did. First of all, the environment: a laptop with Ubuntu 9.10 that can be connected by wire or wireless to a home LAN. The LAN is connected to the web by an AD [...]

MSN Games: more transparenc...

Just an example? MSN Games site. Today I went to that site to purchase a game I like, Hexic. As you can see below, in the snapshot, it seems that the game is [...]

Digging the Digg

I often use Digg to share bookmarks. When I submit a link, I am requested to specify a topic to facilitate other people to find it. Well, it is a fact that no taxonomy is really exhaustive and that every attempt to group articles by categories is based on a subjective point of view, however the Digg's selected topics are really a mystery for [...]

I’m NOT lovin’ it!

I live in Rome, Italy. This morning I decided to go to EUR for shopping. While walking, I saw a pile of garbage on the side of the street, next to the rubbish skips. «What uncivilized people!», I thought. I got near the heap and looked closer.

No Windows 7 Clean Install,...

People do not purchase computers to run operating systems but applications. However it seems that Microsoft really does not understand that simple concept, as well as it does not understand how much time and effort it is usually required to a user for customizing a system according to his/her needs. I am referring to the decision of Mi [...]
