I’ve had this problem with Hamachi for a while: because client management is pretty lacking (in part due to the new management’s desire to up-sell you to paid tiers), people fill their networks with people that have multiple Hamachi installations on different partitions, or separate laptops, etc.
When Hamachi went to version 2 with the [...]
Please use this post AND ALSO the comments below to help you on your journey. Many smart people have contributed to the discussion with some very useful information, particularly for ways to more easily search for your model identifier in the resources found below.
It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.

To use Windows for the type of work I do, I need command line tools like ssh, and the standard Unix core utilities. The standard Cygwin launcher is a batch file, so using Ctrl-D in certain kinds of contexts (Console2, for example) causes a message that asks if you want to log [...]
There is no doubt in my mind that nearly every advancement in the last 4 years in web browser UI and interaction model has been spurred by Google Chrome.
Chrome—the Google-branded version of the open source project Chromium—has shaken things up just when browsers were getting boring again. From UI changes (such [...]
If you’ve got the same rotten luck as me, you might find that the Windows 7 beta doesn’t work very nicely with virutal ISO mounting programs yet. I’m not the type to pay for software, and so most free options seem to only make Win7 hang if you try to open My Computer, or do [...]
Can someone tell me why we feel the need to harass Microsoft for bundling IE on their own flipping OS?
Without IE, I wouldnt’ be able to get online very easily, to go download Chrome or FF or Opera or whatever.

If you’d like to see me give screenshots (at full resolution, instead of the crappy Youtube video quality) or more info of anything else at all, let me know and I’ll post as much as I can about it.
The public Windows 7 beta is build number 7000 (nicely timed, Microsoft).
Honestly, the easiest way to get [...]
At least on an x86 machine (not 64-bit windows), the file is found here:
Alternatively, you can enter this and find it:
The file has no extention, so you’re best off dragging it into a text editor. If you found this post by searching the web, you probably already know what the file [...]
Amateur at everything, coder, UI designer, musician, and writer. I break things apart and re-program them from scratch to learn exactly which problems people have solved in the past. I write for NaNoWriMo, and I'm nearing the self publication of a short story called Highway.
Python is my passion. Alastair Reynolds writes great science fiction, but has a really ugly website. My Mac is my Linux without all the driver failures. I hate working directly for salesmen. Huge scented candles are surprisingly nice when you work from home all day. I play AP Mid lane for my League of Legends team, but love a good run at Top.
