Split Screens – 2 keyboards, 2 mice, 1 PC, maybe 2 screens

Posted by moss2010 on July 16, 2007

Save energy, hardware costs, and space.

Mash this with ZoneOS Zone Screen that lets you extend the desktop across two monitors and get two users on one PC.

Go Vista in June 2008

Posted by moss2010 on July 9, 2007

Hold off on Vista until June 2008 or until Service Pack 2 (SP2) – whatever comes later. 

http://blogs.pcworld.com/techlog/archives/004000.html

For now use Windows XP Professional SP2 (if you can get a license!) or Ubuntu.

Vista = slow $1500 PC
XP= fast $750 PC
Ubuntu = fast $500 PC (without your IPod and PC games)

Taming the Tunes

Posted by moss2010 on July 4, 2007

Here’s how to create your own playlists that are easy to do and can’t get lost so easily.

1. Create a folder with Windows Explorer like: c:\my jukebox\my parties\my rock party 1\

2. Copy (not move!) all your mp3 files to this folder

3. Select All these files

4. Right-click and select Properties

5. Click on the Summary tab

Taming itunes

6. Change the Album Title to “My Rock Party 1”

7. In iTunes import this folder

8. Use the quick find to show only the songs for the “My Rock Party 1” album

9. Create a playlist called “My Rock Party 1” and drag in all the songs

10. You have your own compilation album (and a playlist based on a folder of your songs)

11. Now you can sync to your iPod or copy the folder to your vanilla mp3 player

Five Platforms

Posted by moss2010 on July 3, 2007

  1. MicrosoftLive
  2. GoogeApps
  3. Open Source
  4. Web 2.0
  5. And the rest: Oracle, IBM

Here’s Hanselman 5 computers:

http://www.hanselman.com/blog/TheSkynetComputeCloudIThinkThereIsAWorldMarketForMaybeFiveComputers.aspx

I believe this list will likely turn into The Five Computers:

  1. Google (Apps)
  2. Amazon (EC2)
  3. Microsoft (Live)
  4. Sun (Grid)
  5. A network of installed bots on every small computer, possibly built into the OS, to use idle CPU cycles for the collective.

This “5th computer” will be the “remainder” after the first four, but might ultimately become the largest. Perhaps it’s a larger number, but surely Amazon will buy Bay at some point, and Google will buy Salesforce.com, so they don’t count.

VMWARE for Ubuntu and Edubuntu and Kubuntu

Posted by moss2010 on June 29, 2007

This is the way to try many Operating Systems or Server Setups without all the installation and setup hassles…we’ll see. 

I’m going to try http://www.vmware.com/products/free_virtualization.html

and  http://www.vmware.com/vmtn/appliances/directory/902  ( http://www.kubuntu.org/ ) then maybe http://www.edubuntu.org/
