As part of this release, Diskeeper offers several updates and new features to their product. Having only tested it for a couple of days, I have not drawn any tangible conclusions.

Google Urchin 6 Quick Evaluation

September 10th, 2008 Comments off

urchin6-1Google purchased a web analytics software package, called Urchin. Urchin 6 has evolved into a powerful web analytic for a reasonable fraction of the cost price of applications like WebTrends. Urchin 6 is only available through a selection of Google authorized sellers for $2995. That purchase price includes everything that there is to offer, unlike Urchin 5, where additional modules were needed to perform additional tasks for more money. For the $2995, you may analyze up to 1000 domains. There are a plethera of features, many superior and comparable to the other modern day analytic software applications. However, the one feature that I want (and many do too) is the ability to tag. Urchin 6 only permits log analytics not tagging. This feature is left out so that you may continue to tag through the use of Google Analytics, the online only version....

gcrome3Google Chrome is an internet browser that is one of the newest internet browsers to hit the market. Google Chrome offers address bar suggestions for both search and web pages, thumbnails of top sites, and shortcuts to applications. I downloaded it the other day to see how my website and others looked. To check if anything appears broken or incorrectly displayed as is generally the case with various flavors of Interent Explorer 6 through 8. I have read that there are serious security vulnerabilities, and as of this moment, I do not see a reason to swich from Firefox....

August 28th, 2008 Comments off

mant510-2An HDTV (High Definition Televsion) is not an HDTV if you are unable to access any HDTV stations from it. A recent configuration consisted of an analog suscriber cable connection connected directly to the HDTV, and where an analog suscriber cable connection is connected directly to an HTPC (Home Theatre PC). The HTPC is connected to the same HDTV. With this setup, analog television may be watched either through the HDTV analog cable connection or through the HTPC directly connected to the HDTV and digital television is aviable through the builtin HD tuner of the HDTV....

Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3 Released

May 7th, 2008 Comments off

xpsp3-1Today, I installed Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3 on a test box. It is released as WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe (MD5: BB25707C919DD835A9D9706B5725AF58) and became available for download yesterday, May 6, 2008. The installation was uneventful and took around 20 minutes on a Pentium 4 2+ Ghz system. The service pack is available from Microsoft here. Immediately after applying SP3, I checked for any updates, there are two, Windows internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP and Windows Media Player 11. Neither of which were previously installed....

Creative Labs: Another dissatisfied customer

April 18th, 2008 Comments off

creativeI had been reading through more of the Creative Labs forums, and came upon this post that is so well worded that it doesn't need to be paraphrased. It seems that the creative Labs forums in general have become a battlefield of spam and discontent. This is yet another thread detailing another who is completely dissatisfied by the way Creative Labs is handling their driver updates and customer base. I thought that this is worth passing along. source.....

EMC Documentum eRoom 7.4.0a a must upgrade

April 7th, 2008 Comments off

A couple of weeks ago, I upgraded eRoom from 7.3.4 to 7.4.0 (7.40.500.183), which was released on March 11, 2008. On March 28, 2008, EMC Documentum eRoom 7.4.0a (7.40.500.184) was released. Unlike previous versions of this product, 7.4.0 is no longer available. For example, version 7.3.3 and version 7.3.3a both exist and are still downloadable. This raises the question, what is so bad to cause EMC to remove Documentum eRoom 7.4.0 from the download page. The answer is found in the release notes....
