  • Make integrated Vista SP2 iso's available

    The Pirate Bay offers ISOs for all Microsoft products free of charge. In fact, there are multiple Vista SP2 ISOs available.

  • The Pirate Bay is going to jail

    The copy of Win XP that I'm typing this from came from the pirate bay.

    I guess the right thing to do would be to send a check in the amount of a real Win XP license to TPB guys to help with their legal defense.

    I have a legal copy of OEM Win XP, before any service packs were released (2002).

    I have a used PC with no OS installed, and it has an SATA hard drive.

    Obviously I cant use my legal XP disk to install to an SATA hard disk.

    If there is a legal solution to the above conundrum, I would love to hear it. Otherwise, I'm turning to TPB.

  • Is anyone boycotting nVidia yet ?

    A ton of people are really **** off because of the high Xbox 360 failure rate, especially RROD. If your  Xbox360 has not failed yet then  there is no fix, just hope it fails before your warranty expires - in any case, problem will show up until way after 3 yr warranty runs out. Microsoft is also #1 in trashing Vista reputation because of crappy UI design. Any thoughts on this?

  • Apple-​related Question - I don't understand this statement.

    The PowerPC 601 featured a single-cycle floating point MAC unit, which made Macs at the time much faster at multimedia tasks than their x86 IBM-PC counterparts. Single cycle FP MAC units didn't make it to the x86 world until much later.

    Also, the Altivec vector unit introduced with the PowerPC G4 beat the pants off of the equivalent vector units in the x86 world for years after Altivec was released.

    General Tips:
    1. Get a library card and find out how interlibrary loan works.
    2. Start collecting lists of books to read (like you're doing here)


    Some of my favorite computer-related books (besides Code Complete and Don't Make me Think):
    The Design of Everyday Things
    Toward Zero-Defect Programming
    Building The Perfect PC
    (if you're at all interested in the hardware inside)
    The New Way Things Work (slightly dated but still a highly accurate depiction of how things work at a slightly lower level)


    find out how interlibrary loan works.


    QFT. Interlibrary load helped me out immensely in grad school. Also 2 more things: my school provided free subscriptions to both IEEE Xplore and O'Reilly Safari, but didn't advertise this anywhere.

    I thought the conclusion of the Mythbusters episode about Tesla's earthquake machine was that it was actually possible given enough tuning? As far as I recall, they managed to shake that bridge up somewhat with a pretty measly device.

    I'm pretty sure a modern bridge engineer would remember to place their poles on the left hand side of the s-plane.

  • Yahoo refunds money for DRM

    FairUse4WM.exe for the win.

  • Windows "Mojave"

    Let me get this straight, these people just watched a video, and never actually used the OS? And this is the only way MS could get people to like Vista, is by not actually letting them use the OS? And MS is advertising this fact?
