The higher the screen resolution the greater the memory and processor requirements are for displaying everything at full resolution. But generally with enough processing power and memory there usually isn't too much of an issue with performance. Just to put that it into perspective, I've used a machine with a 2.7GHz core 2 duo processor with 12GB of DDR3 RAM, and an FX2700 with 512MB of dedicated VRAM at 1920x1200 resolution running on an Agility 3 SSD. Even this setup struggles with 2D rend...

10 quid on "pay as you go" GiffGaff bags you quite a lot...

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Sunday, October 28, 2012 In : General tech guides 

 
 
Since arriving back in the UK and getting a my phone back online I've been using GiffGaff. They rock. It's the most value centric "pay as you go" Smartphone talk 'n' data plan that I've used in the UK yet. Oh… why? Cos' like they give you a decent unlimited 3G/GPRS mobile web browsing service each month with a minimum of a ten quid top up, as well as a whole bunch of free text messages, GiffGaff to GiffGaff network calling and 100 free UK calling minutes.  However I couldn't get the bar l...

Blazingly fast SSD's now affordable...

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 In : General tech guides 

 
Nearly a year on after buying a 60GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD, it looks like I only just managed to get onto the SSD train. But seemingly fate wanted to also add insult to injury with the prices on lower storage capacity MLC SATA3 SSD's suddenly having dropped by over a third of the price they were this time last year. It didn't really go down too well at all having not been able to use the thing for an entire year to then find a faster newer version with a larger capacity out in the wild for cheap...

Problems typing after changing the keyboard on an eeePC netbook? (numbers appear instead of letters)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Friday, September 21, 2012

You might do this for reasons of replacing a damaged keyboard or changing to a more native keyboard type for easier typing to then find its doing weird stuff you don't want it to when it actually comes to typing on it.

Symptoms

1.  Numbers appear instead of letters after fitting a new internal built in keyboard when pressing the following characters on an eeePC:  u, i, o, j, k, l, m.

2. The problem still persists when re-installing your original built in netbook eeePC keyboard. 


Don't panic, if i...

The best FREE anti-virus protection for Windows

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Monday, September 17, 2012 In : General tech guides 

 
I can't stress this enough and I think I've said this before, but if you must use free anti-virus software for Windows there is no beating Microsoft's Security Essentials. Sure it might be unfair and not good for encouraging competition but there is no denying that it’s the fastest and most lightest of anti-virus programs that I've ever used for Windows, and its actual ability to pick up threats to your computer matches (in some cases goes beyond) many premium subscription based alternativ...

Do you torrent?

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Monday, September 17, 2012 In : General tech guides 

 
I'm not about to get into the in and outs of why you should or shouldn't use it although I will say that there are a lot of commercial entities that use bit torrent as a legitimate means of distributing their software. 

Regardless of which torrent client you use there are some major drawbacks to having a torrent client installed directly to a computer that you might use all the time with all your personal files stored on it. 

For most people once they install their bit torrent software of choi...

I never realised till the other day… (OSX Mountain Lion in a VM)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Thursday, August 9, 2012 In : Software 

 
I'm not a Windows fan boy in the least bit, as I've more then had my share of gripes with various versions of Windows for various different reasons. But credit where credit is due, Windows 7 and from what I've experienced of Windows 8 thus far has pretty much been the bomb on systems that for the main part were pretty reliable for driver support whilst living in the UK and France. Speed for the most part was barely an issue and with version 8 having proven itself to be faster and even lighte...

You can still near completely negate the use of METRO via other means that have long been baked into the Windows OS

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Thursday, August 9, 2012 In : General tech guides 

 
Currently METRO can't be disabled at all by any set of included default options in the current preview builds, but I'm guessing this is to encourage people to explore METRO during the preview since it wouldn't really take much to put the more regular start menu in any sort of final release.

Choice

That's all Windows has ever done with masses of choices for interface interaction which you never find in OSX, but you know what people do? They chose to stick to what they know and then later compla...

The difference between Vista and Windows 8? (...so you think windows 8 will fail like Vista did???)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Thursday, August 9, 2012 In : ramble 


At the time of pre -release testing and actual release Vista just wouldn't work on many machines for being too heavy, that's assuming it actually installed on the machine to begin with. There were many machines that it just wouldn't install to. Above anything it was quicksand slow on many machines it did actually install to in the general consumer domain pre beta testing and post release. Windows 7 addressed this straight out of the blocks pre testing and post release. It even worked on machi...
