  • Defrag: 32bit apps on 64bit OS, App Compat, Upgrading to Win8

    Altering the Win+X shortcut has been THE most helpful tip for Win8 I've come accross yet..

    "%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0" AND 
    "%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /r /t 0" = Beautiful In this menu

    It's completely terrible that Microsoft doesn't supply these two options as "Group3" and have the tools as "Group4" As such:



    Microsoft please release a windows update to enable/allow that right-click menu to have the small .lnk icons used for shortcuts.

    Thanks again for the tip Larry.

  • Windows 8 Tips 2: Getting the Most Out of Charms

    @LarryLarsen:Oh... My... God.... Larry... I don't want to insult you or anything but this is the most helpful you've EVER been.  

    "%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0" AND 
    "%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /r /t 0" = Beautiful

    It's absolute heresy and tragedy that Microsoft doesn't supply these two options as "Group3" and have the tools as "Group4" As such:



    BTW in a future windows update Microsoft should enable that menu to have the small icons used for shortcuts which are used for the .lnk files Smiley Please and THANK YOU! Big Smile

  • Windows 8 Tips 2: Getting the Most Out of Charms

    I love the Windows 8 UI but the most stupid decision MS has made regarding UI was how buried/unusual/different shutting down the PC is, by using the "Setting" charm, To me it's the only negative point about Metro, if they remedy that by BY DEFAULT put the shutdown option in a more accessable place they would have done Metro absolutely beautifully.

    BTW C'mon Charles lets get some WinRT architectural video's/Win8 videos out!.

  • Jim Radigan: Inside Auto-Vectorization, 1 of n

    This guy was amazing in the previous video and I'll be downloading this now to watch asap!

    I wonder what Jim(or anyone who's interested here) would think of my parallel execution engine/vm which schedules and tracks data dependance in a sort of VM environment with a 1 extra layer of memory location indirection instead of making the compiler know all data & locations aware at compilation time?


    It is a little vague and it does it's break up horizontally accross cores instead of vertically to fill the vectors but I did try to explain for a broader audience but I'd love feedback on if my architecture & design seems possible!  If it's just wrong or if any of you long time researchers know if it can't work as I tried to explain please let me know Smiley .

  • GoingNative 8: Introducing Casablanca - A Modern C++ API for Connected Computing

    Steve Gates was way too bland, go deep or go home Tongue Out

  • Alexandrescu, Bright, Meijer, Moran: Pure versus Native (and much more)

    Brilliant, Erik wasn't kidding about the best content happening backstage in the common areas instead of on stage. 

    I THINK Andrei said he was about to destroy the functional side, since he had the perspective of implementation detail instead of how to do the mental concept map for a functional implementation for the doubly-linked list; the very essence of the difference between the two paradigms.

  • Java 8

    I'd love a job at Microsoft or Oracle, Hire me Smiley ericagu at gmail.com (I am the actual creator of the  Chrome OS concept [Master Plan with Chrome] ) -> http://toxprox.tumblr.com/ for a few examples of My thought process and hopefully decent skill to acquire. Smiley I have thought of how to create relativistic paralellization which helped other minds create research papers and I would love to create my automatic parallelization scheme for the JVM.

    Might be odd trying to get hired on Channel9 but I may as well try to do what I dream of working on one day; research for the advancement of our modern technology.

    Love this conference and it's content! I can't wait to watch the rest of the videos as they are posted!

  • Clang: Defending C++ from Murphy's Million Monkeys

    To get Clang 3.1 compiling 64-Bit binaries go to: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/files/Toolchains%20targetting%20Win64/Personal%20Builds/rubenvb/4.7.0-2/ 

    Grab both:
     x86_64-w64-mingw32-clang-3.1-2_rubenvb.7z and 

    Extract both to the same directory to merge them for libraries & runtime dll's.  Running clang++.exe seems to work excellent with and without the -std=c++0x command line flag to enable C++11 features like range-based for loops and auto. Lambda's aren't yet supported but the GCC included by downloading and merging both supports all new features noted here: http://gcc.gnu.org/projects/cxx0x.html

    Hope this helps some get started quickly with trying Clang.

  • Threads and Shared Variables in C++11

    @El Cubico That's utterly useless...  Recommended to not download, it's just El Cubico's bad manner upon Boehm's talk concerning his foreign accent. I actually want to hear the content not your ridiculous edit.

  • YOW! 2011: Simon Peyton-Jones - Closer to Nirvana

    Simon is without doubt, a damn hero in today's world.  The most privileged I would ever become would be to have a job as his pupil or peer in Microsoft Research to help succeed in the important stuff like bringing true computer science back and paving the way for one path to our modern world's programming language Nirvana.

    It's always nice to hear from Simon, thanks for the interview Charles.
