Windows Vista, WOW! Chapter II

loocas | miscellaneous,opinions,software,technical | Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

HA! Well, who would’ve guessed? I just reverted back to the classic Windows 2000 theme after reading:

If you are running Vista 64-bit the application setting is currently broken, hence forcing users to disable the feature at the operating system level.

By the way, a very interesting read, I strongly recommend going through the whole page.

Windows Vista, WOW!

loocas | miscellaneous,opinions,software,technical | Monday, October 27th, 2008

I spent this weekend reinstalling the Windows, then configuring it and finally installing all the applications and programs I use. I hate this procedure so much (I know, I should use some image restore utilities etc…) I tried to avoid it as much as possible until the OS finally completely collapsed. Reinstallation also has some positive aspects to it, like revising your workflow and software you use. Like Mail, I stopped using it even on the previous installation, then I installed the Live Mail (or whatever the name), such a shitty app., I really don’t recommend anyone even trying it out as I did, since you then get stuck with it due to some important mail conversations you suddenly receive and then just try to put up with it.

Python 2.6 banner

Python 2.6 had been officially released on 01.09.2008! Some really great new features but still compatible with 2.5 code, which is great for slowly transitioning to the upcoming Python 3000.

Don’t hesitate a second and go for the download!

Petr Rohr’s Matchmoving ShowReel

loocas | miscellaneous,technical | Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

A friend and a colleague of mine, Petr Rohr, asked me whether I could host his latest showreel as he doesn’t have a reliable hosting provider, yet. Since the showreel is really good and Peter is a great dude, I didn’t hesitate a second before saying yes :) Further more, I thought it’d be cool to not only host the reel as download only files, but also host a stream version of it, although in a smaller resolution and quality. So here it is in its full glory:
