How to run IE7 (Beta 1) alongside IE6
Sure, you knew IE7 Beta 1 was up on MDSN, but you donâ€™t have a free machine to test it on. Canâ€™t install it on your main work machine, because you canâ€™t afford to mess it upâ€¦ plus, you need to be testing your work against IE 6, right? Fret no more! IE has a secret standalone mode which lets you run multiple versions side by sideâ€¦
This applies to about 1% of those reading this, but hey…itâ€™s still pretty cool even for older versions of IE. I know no one out there has a copy of IE 7 Beta1 who isnâ€™t supposed to…right?

Thanks to the death of NetBurst, Conroe will feature a 5x increase in performance per watt. Here’s to the death of the power-hungry Intel processor.

How to Use Google Maps EZ
A quick but very useful guide to getting your own google map up and running…I may take a look at getting something of my own running once I have a chance to devote some time to it.
IBM brains capture a PC’s soul | CNET News.com
Researchers at IBM are testing software that would let you tote your home or office desktop around on an iPod or similar portable device so that you could run it on any PC. The virtual computer user environment setup is called SoulPad, and consumers install it from a x86-based home or office PC. SoulPad uses a USB (universal serial bus) or FireWire connection to access the network cards for connecting to the Internet, the computer’s display, the keyboard, the main processor and the memory, but not the hard disk. After the person disconnects the system, SoulPad saves all work to the device, including browser cookies or other digital signatures that a PC keeps in its short-term memory. The nameSoulPad comes from the concept of separating a PC into a body (processor, memory, keyboard, display) and a soul (data, applications, personal settings).
Incredibly cool idea. Though, in all honestly, not exactly anything new…people have been thinking about this, and even some have been doing this, for a while now.
We Hate Technology! :: If you don’t hate it, you aren’t fixing it!
You poor sap, somehow you found your way onto this website. http://www.wehatetech.com is a giant bitch session of a website dedicated to ranting about your dislike of any area of technology. The core of the website will be the podcasting streams that will be produced by your angry hosts, Glen and Josh. We will cover any topic and bring equal hate and disgust toward every OS, every gaming platform, every sort of user, every single piece of hardware equipment, every vendor, every website, everything!
A rather amusing read, and listen…these guys put out a daily or near-daily podcast if that’s your thing, otherwise just browsing there site and reading there bitching is pretty funny.
Here is an idea of what my desktop looks like currently…weâ€™ll see how long this one stays. Let me know if you have any questions about what the different parts are.
Here is a funny commercial I came across that hopefully will be on TV soon for MS Virtual Earth…it’s a quicktime video just FYI. When the guy gets frisked by a police officer he pleads in his defense, “I’m a butterfly; I got nothing.”

So I did in fact get bored and decided to get OSx86 running. Check out the pictures…yes, they are horrible quality because i had to use my cell phone to take pictures as the wireless internet isn’t working just yet in OSx86…
Well, my main computer is finally back up and running like normal. It took a little convincing, but I finally got everything reinstalled and back in working order. I was also able to *cough cough* get OSX working under VMWare as the previous posting discussed…next is to get it running natively on a hard drive…maybe that will be tonight’s plan or perhaps I should not torture my computer anymore for a while. We’ll see.
