So far day 1 of the Windows usage challenge has gone. I must admit that I like Windows 8.1 UI more than I liked the Windows 7 one.
As you may know by now, I don’t even attempt doing anything without my Hackintosh or Macbook.
However after looking at Windows 8 for some time, I decided to give it a try.
Let’s see whether I will run for my Mac after a week or not 🙂
The software I am going to use so far:
Media player: WebTunes, foobar2000
Messengers and networks: VK, Twitter, Miranda IM, Windows Mail
Browsing: Chrome, Download Master
Audio, video editor: Sound Forge 6.0, Vegas 7
Tidbits: CreativelyControlled, Audio Switcher, Sublime Text, WinSCP, PuTTY
After having some fun with CSS I wrote this neat little theme. Chrome-only so far.
Generate your own one here. Or peek under the break for more screenies of generated themes!
It’s been a nice half-a-year working on it. I learned the majority of what I know about web development now while making the software for DakiMaker.com.
Sadly, now that the new term at school begins, I will no longer have time to keep DakiMaker updated — it was even on suspend the last month due to a bug in the software.
All the current orders that were in the system will be shipped out.
In case you have a question — email me on my Gmail. It’s on my github website, in case you were wondering.
Don’t worry — sooner or later it will come back in a whole new way.
Right now I am in process of downloading the disk image for it, actually. So it will be back one day.
But for now I must suspend most projects in order to study for the Russian State Exam.
Don’t expect much activity until next summer on any of the projects.
Thanks and see ya next time!
A quick and easy fix if your machine fails on dspromo with the error of missing sbsntds.dit:
copy C:\Windows\System32\ntds.dit C:\Windows\System32\sbsntds.dit
Just a quick update, but WebTunes now has SoundCloud support. Quite barebones, but still.
Also it’s now opensource! Check it here: BitBucket
I must say it turned out quite good, at least I am writing this while listening to it. Not the best, but can save from carrying around a USB hard drive with FLAC rips of your CDs and some occasionally downloaded mp3s.
Get under the break for an in-depth review, a video, and even a demo playlist.
So, since Windows 98 turned out to be not quite usable, I decided to give Windows 2000 a go.
I didn’t have its CD, so I had to go over to Ebay and buy one.
After making an image of it, I started the process…
In case you got in the mood for nostalgia, or just feel like Windows XP is too much for you while it takes a lot of system resources, this is one of those things you may want to do.
