BBCiPlayer Beta

Got my invite today, works really well but shame they force you to use IE and windows media player and you have to install active x to link IE with BBCiPlayer which manages downloads, it\’s not instant download I get better performance on torrent. all in all great idea as I can re watch all my favourite comedy again and again 😀

Extremely lucky or me getting godly powers

Every time I go 2 repair some thing it’s starting working normal, today one of the dell server started flashing a failed hard drive this the ultra 360 SCSI 15k rpm drives very expensive 36gig drive is about £180. the 1st line guys went in shacked the hard drive put it back in no luck do the normal stuff no luck, so u know if I drive fail I can’t do much , decided to check what model no to buy so went their took it off gave it a bit of shake and put back. what do u know it’s started working normal, every one is shocked,

It’s been happening a lot now days, soon as I go near it started working, only think need is my touch,  

open source windows

come a cross this article through digg, interesting read, but I don\’t really think MS will do that though, but what they can do is make their windows 9x code open source It\’s dies down now. all though win 9x code base is a shitty OS they run well on low end systems with just 16mb. so if that code goes to some cleaver people they can do wonders. and create fun little embedded devices etc. I know Linux can run well on low end system, but not as well as windows 9x though and allready lot of apps written for 9x platform

Shadow copy

I always enjoyed the shadow copy feature on win2k3 and winxp environment, as I have a habit of deleting the files I need, It’s saves lot of time with out going to backup tapes and restoring etc.

Now vista bring that functionality to home with out a win2k3 server, I didn’t know this till last week when I accidentally deleted the original rip from a DVD instead of a converted wmv file, (too big to get stored on Recycle bin) I kept both on a same folder, so I got mixed up, any way I did some googling to ways to bring the deleted the files and found out Vista have this option and brought it back with in 2 mins how cool.
