the mac contest is over

for those that did not know there recently was a contest in which challenged its contestants in the ways of computers. the challenge? to install windows xp on a intell based mac. people from all around the world tried and only one man prevailed. his prize you ask? money, fame, women, well maybe not so much the women but he might get some. but there is money and fame thought, a nice two out of three. details have not yet been release but there is video to validate the claim. whether all this is true is yet proven, but i really wont believe it till i see it, all i would need if one of the new coreduo mac powerbooks and 2 gb of ram with a nice 120 or 160 gb hd and then ill let everyone know. my curiousity is killing me. then i am sure that linux will be next. then you could possibly have three in box. but hopefully three is not a crowd. anyway will see.untill then check out the video of the victory.

ever wonder how to fold a shirt? just watch

ubuntu

recently there was a security issue that was found in the breezy badger release. there was an ability to see the roots log on and password. but only a few hours after the post the problem was fixed. there in lies the reason i am writing this post. it only took a matter of hours for them to fix the problem, the response time was amazing. it would be nice if other software developers would be that responsive. especially if it where microsoft. they have had many of the same security holes go month's before they finally release a patch for the flaw. a prime example is the many holes that are still present in internet explorer. i guess thats why i started to learn the way of the nix. although there are reports that vista is more secure and blah blah blah. perhaps its because this time they are starting from the ground up. only time will tell.

taskkiller

i found this little helper while running through digg, its a little batch file that anyone can create to "kill" a task or a few with a double click. simplely open the task manager, and then choose the task(s) that you want to kill in a hurry. after the selection(s) you want to open notepad, and you type this @echo off taskkill/im YPager.exe/f taskkill/im msnmsgr.exe/f these are examples of some process that you might find. just replace the "YPager.exe" with the process that you want to kill. oh, before i forget the "im" before the task stands for the image name that you want to stop, and the "/f" is to forcefully stoping the task. then just save the file as "taskkill.bat" and thats with the quotes, or you can name it what ever that you want. thats it, thats all that you have to do and then place it on the desktop. have fun and be careful on what task you put on the list cause some are essential. just google them first before adding the line.
