WinToFlash can transfer Windows XP, Vista, and 7 onto a flash drive as well as Server 2003 and 2008. WinToFlash can also transfer Windows Preinstallation Environments to flash drive.

WinToFlash is a softwaretool for transfering your Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 2008 and Windows 7 setup from CD or DVD to flash in some mouse clicks.

The process is simple and mostly obvious. You tell WinToFlash where the installation files you want to transfer are located and either let the transfer wizard take care of things, or specify settings like what kind of format the flash drive will undergo.

Windows vista and 7 can also be installed on a USB drive with the following tutorial.

 

24th of August, 2006:  Over 2500 astronomers participated in the vote at the General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union (IAU) in Prague, The Czech Republic.

A celestial body can now be classed as a planet if:

  • it is in orbit around the Sun
  • it has enough mass to take on a nearly round shape
  • it has cleared the neighbourhood around its orbit.

Since Pluto does not meet these criteria anymore, because its highly eccentric orbit overlaps with that of Neptune, the IAU’s decision means that the Solar System now consists of just eight major planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

Pluto is not a planet anymore, but a ‘dwarf-planet’.

Quote from wikipedia

As of 2008, the IAU has classified five celestial bodies as dwarf planets. Two of these, Ceres and Pluto, are known to qualify as dwarf planets through direct observation. The other three, Eris, Haumea, and Makemake, are thought to be dwarf planets from mathematical modeling—or in the case of Eris, because it is larger than Pluto—and qualify for the classification under IAU naming rules based on their magnitudes.

 

It seems a busy weekend for some sites.  On saturday 22th of August 2009 was Fok hacked by Hacker ‘GrayHatHacks’, with the help of  ‘sql injections‘. Followed by a ddos-attack.

Around 22:10 today came tweakers under a ddos-attack. Although down for a few moments, tweakers.net is still managing  to block the attack , with an average of 30K packets per second.

Interesting to know that fok.nl is still down, but that tweakers.net can handle a significant ddos. (At 22:40 a total of 20M packets were blocked since 22:35)

Someone is pissed at the Netherlands, #fok & #tweakers are getting #DDOS

ddos-aanval op #tweakers succesvol geweerd door sysadmins. Al 20M packets geblocked sinds 22.35 uur
tweakers   Aug 23   22:40

At least #tweakers knows how to deal with a ddos. Pay attention #fok!, this is how it’s done.

corrupted-files.com

Corrupted files.com offers a wide array of corrupted Word, Excel or Power Point files that are guaranteed not to open on a Mac or PC.

their philosophy:

A corrupted file is a file that contains scrambled and unrecoverable data due to hardware or software failure. Files may become corrupted when something goes wrong while a file is being saved e.g. the program saving the file might crash. Files may also become corrupted when being sent via email. The perfect excuse to buy you that extra time!

 

If you work in a stressful environment, like me, you’ll need a good dose of coffee to keep you going. But who’s turn was it for the “office-coffee-round ”  ?

Offcourse  you could workout a scheme in Excel or Access, but the good people of Douwe Egberts have created a software packet for this: Koffiemanager.

You create a coffee-group on the first startup, so that when someone in your network comes online and installs the program he can see this group and become part of it. You can give up to max 4 timetables when decided it’s coffee time, a user then receives a notification if he would like to participate.

Not only suitable for coffee, but also for tea, water, espresso, limonade, etc. Furthermore, “Koffiemanager” chooses who’s time it is to get some beverage.

And ow yeah: it keeps statistics about the amount a person has drunk.

Blindsearch combines the 3 “big” search engines Google, Bing and Yahoo into seperate search results.

How it works ?

quote from : blindsearch

Type in a search query above, hit search then vote for the column which you believe best matches your query. The columns are randomised with every query.
The goal of this site is simple, we want to see what happens when you remove the branding from search engines. How differently will you perceive the results?

This site is built as a fun experiment by Michael Kordahi, follow me on twitter @delic8genius for notification of updates to this site.

 

Today is is the day of the left-handers. It’s an international day, first ‘celebrated’ in 1992, 13th August.

It’s main purpose is to give a signal how difficult certain things can be in a right-handed world. These are not dramatic or life threatening, but overall some small irritations.

Quote from: http://www.lefthandersday.com/

Welcome to the official site for the Left-Handers Club, and the 18th annual celebration of left-handers superiority!! All year round, we fit in with home and office layouts designed for right-handers’ comfort – put up with doors, cookers, sinks, computer mice, keyboards and desks that are efficient for right-handers to work at, and hundreds of times every day we contort ourselves using back-to-front tools and gadgets that make us look clumsy and awkward in our efforts to make them to work…
But NOT TODAY! Because on this special day, it is your chance to GET YOUR OWN BACK on your right-handed friends colleagues and family, by designating your personal space as a LEFTY ZONE where everything must be done left-handed! Download our unique Lefty Zone posters for prominent display, plus any others from our selection of FREE LEFT-HANDERS DAY POSTERS, re-arrange the room for your convenience, and settle down to enjoy this site, totally dedicated to YOU

And offcourse every day begins with:

Good morning everyone 🙂

quote from mashable.com:

Did you hear? Google’s launching a new, upgraded version of its search engine soon. And just as important, the search giant released the developer’s preview of it today. Google promises that the new search tool (codename “Caffeine”) will improve the speed, accuracy, size, and comprehensiveness of Google search.

 

Yes, yes it is. (Although some food would be pleasant)
