  • I liked the 3.5inch docking station drive. Who makes it?

    I also use TSVN and TGit and Explorer still works. Run ProcMon in background to see what is going on.

    Btw, will this ugly limit of displayed overlay icons ever increased?

    check that the DNS client service (dnscache) runs. Otherwise the apps disable that ugly message, that they don't have internet.

    [10:25] - How to rename user profile and retain settings.

    Use Windows Easy Transfer instead.

    [12:10] - How to browse drives that are offline.

    use this search tool, which creates an index:

    Change "Look in" to your HDD drive letter and type the keyworks you look for.

    the i7 has 4 real cores, while the i5 uses HT to get 4 "cores".

    But I bought a new dell laptop explicit without touch, because I don't like it and the ugly implementation from Win8. Optimize Win 8.1/Blue for 4:3 AND sliding from top to button (like in Gnome 3) instead from left to right and I may buy a Surface 2 RT as an additional couch surfing device, but with this ugly crappy 16:9 I'll never use a Win8.x tablet!

    -Instead of manually configuring DNS Settings, you could use a program such as DNS Jumper [Link]; It's pretty handy, offers numerous different DNS choices, automates the process and easily lets you switch back to your default DNS Settings.

     

    Haven't tried other programs, however, as a free software, this works pretty well;

  • I've been using namebench to find out by fastest dns server.. its open source and can be found @ http://code.google.com/p/namebench/

     

  • dan_tdtower Surface Fan

    Glad to hear the Surface pen is working well for you Larry. I really want a Surface Pro for all the reasons you listed. I just need to get final approval from the Spending Committee (aka my wife) first. She gets my hand-me-downs too and is still using my old Toshiba M700 that just refuses to die. That thing is a little tank. So an upgrade for me will be an upgrade for her too.

    Very cool information, it also helps me in deciding which laptop I get in the near future. It looks like it will be the Lenovo X1 Carbon. Thanks again guys,
