    Music & audio baloney

    • 4 Comments
    I wouldn't describe myself as an 'Audiophile', but I do own a lot of music (over 400 CD's, at last count). As a collector of music, I have 2 primary problems: How to store it, and how to actually listen to it, while still trying to keep it organized....

    Mike Wall, a very bright guy from AMD, just forwarded this to me. I figured it couldn't hurt to put it here: <snip> If anyone has an Athlon 64 Emachines M6805, M6809, M6811 notebook and you're running 64-bit Windows, here is how to get the ATI...

    Driver complaint

    • 9 Comments
    <rant> Why is it that everyone decides to create their own whiz-bang interface for drivers & whatnot? Why is it always so difficult to just say "Install my printer & use the Windows default interface for managing it". WiFi cards &...

    It's been a while - I'm now the proud father of 3 children, up from a mere 2, and I'm finally back at work, and resuming normal developer duties. In the mean time, check out my glamorous appearance on "the .Net Show" on MSDN: http://msdn.microsoft...

    This guy has a rather, uh, odd perspective on what the past & future Visual Studio products were about: http://www.infoworld.com/article/05/03/23/13opcurve_1.html And what is up with the completely unrelated title? Let me spell out the facts: Visual...

    Boost & BJam plus Web Chats coming up

    • 0 Comments
    I'm a big C++ fan, despite the fact that the VC++ optimizer is written in C. I've been using Boost for a couple years now, and just picked up the initial tarball for 1.32.0. Someone's written a .jam file for VC8 on x64, but it just does the bare minimum...

    What is the difference between AMD64 & EM64T, really?

    • 2 Comments
    Yes, I've had inside information about all of this for quite some time, but none of this info is confidential. It's all discoverable - for all I know, there are already websites out there that provide this detail. The trouble is that both companies seem...
