Gmail – a slight push towards Chrome

So this is what welcomes me when I sign in to Gmail using IE 10: The wording is really noble. It doesn’t say that “we hate Microsoft, so let’s just throw IE out of the window”. No, instead it says: You are using a version of this browser which will soon be unsupported. It sounds […]

Outlook.com – integrated shortcut for fail

My current brainfuck is really simple to reproduce. Just open outlook.com in your browser, sign in to your mailbox, then press Ctrl + 3, which, by default, is supposed to switch to the 3rd tab in Firefox. Well, not in the case of outlook.com. Here your reward will be a nice error message: The only […]

Upgrading to WP 7.8 with Navifirm and Nokia Care Suite

Alright, the title might be a bit misleading – in fact this tutorial can be used for any firmware upgrade in general, not just for 7.8. So anyway, you have a Windows Phone 7 device and you’re too impatient to wait for the official 7.8 update. Good news: you don’t have to. Here’s all the […]

Battle.net lockout, lost customer

I’ve been having a Battle.net account for ages. I have an original copy of Diablo 1, Diablo 2 and its expansion, WarCraft 3 and its expansion and lastly, StartCraft and its expansion. Today I received an email about a discount on StarCraft 2. Heck, I always wanted to try it, so it would’ve been a […]

foobar2000 unicode support

So there’s foobar2000 which claims to have “full unicode support”. Well, I can prove within a minute it’s wrong. Let’s take a very basic cuesheet: PERFORMER “Foo” TITLE “Bar” FILE “asd.wav” WAVE TRACK 01 AUDIO TITLE “Izé” INDEX 01 00:00:00 Save this as UTF-8 without BOM, load in foobar2000 and what will you get? Yeah. […]

Facebook Messenger for Windows download fail

So you want to download Facebook Messenger for Windows. It has an official page, which looks like this: So (since you don’t have any other option) you click on Learn more, which redirects to you another page: As you can see, it has a link to the Messenger for Windows page, which is in fact […]

Reviving an SSD from death

I’m sure a lot of you have faced this: you’re using an SSD, you turn it off one day, and the other day that crap just won’t boot. The damn thing won’t even be recognized by your BIOS/UEFI no matter what you do. You might be using sleep or hibernation, and this might be one […]

Installing Windows 8 from another partition

ODDs are a thing of the past. I can’t even recall when I last installed an OS from DVD. Thanks to WUDT and LiLi you can install any OS from a pendrive. But what if you don’t have any at hand? Are you screwed? Nope. You just gotta have a spare partition or some spare […]

Creating YouTube music videos fast

For me, a YouTube music video is a static picture and music in the background. It seems that most youtubers share this opinion. So what’s the simplest and fastest way of doing that? My choice is Movie Maker. Download, install it, then fire it up. Add a picture, then add the music too. You might […]

MPC-HC vs VLC

So the thing is, I love MPC-HC for its subtitle controls. I can set subtitles to be displayed on the bottom of the display instead of the bottom of the movie. Coz there are movies which are even wider than a 16:9 display, you know. It makes no sense to take space from the movie […]
