Seemingly unfixable problems in Skype fixed... kinda' (constant dropped calls)

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Sunday, October 31, 2010, In : General tech guides 



I think Skype is great and as a messaging client and its pretty damned reliable. Well at least within Europe and most of the time in the initial stages when calling Asia. But if you find that the performances gets to the point where:

- There are long delays in instant message delivery, i.e. You constantly see the timer next to your message(s) that you send to have to wait from anything between two minutes to half an hour before they're delivered to the actual person you're trying to send the...

Security essentials not working anymore?

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Friday, October 29, 2010, In : General tech guides 


For something that's free MS security essentials is a damned good real time anti-virus scanner that's pretty good at picking out a lot of potential threats a long with a whole bunch of others stuff that might have been identified as a threat but don't pose any real threat at all in relative terms. In which case you still have the option to ignore it if indeed you do feel you do know better.

I never knew I needed OS virtualisation till I used it...

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Friday, October 29, 2010, In : Software 




Since discovering virtualisation I haven't looked back. Its sounds a lot more technical then it actually is but its basically the notion of running a whole Virtual computer (or numerous virtual computers) inside your current computers OS environment. Yes like a computer inside a computer. It does this by partitioning off system resources to then run them as a if they were a completely separate machine inside your OS environment.

Obviously it was created for more serious mission critical a...

Connecting multiple wireless devices to an Inventel Livebox without having to install bloating Orange software on your comp

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Friday, October 29, 2010, In : General tech guides 



Whilst I was visiting the UK I had a little trouble finding some way of easily connecting wirelessly to an Orange Livebox.  From what I can gather there are a number of different variants of the Orange Livebox made by different manufacturers. Generally I was well accustomed with the Segam version which gives you a  lot more direct control over your wireless connections including direct Mac filtering.

However if you're one of the ones with an Inventel made Orange Livebox there is no way of di...

The long held assertion of 1394 firewire being better for ASIO streaming then USB 2.0 purely myth?

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Friday, October 29, 2010, In : technology 



Video is great 'n' all but isn't this supposed to be about reliable audio in a club or studio environment??

Its strange how there are a fair number manufacturers of tried and tested professional grade audio equipment still opt to use audio streaming over a USB connection instead of firewire. But then again why shouldn't they since the equipment they use it in is proven to reliably work within professional settings. Take Allen & Heath, Vestax, Native Instruments and Denon for example. Some ...

I don't represent Korg. Nor do I have any shares in the company. But why certain individuals seem to feel the need to use and highlight the word zero within various inverse contexts as if it will somehow attach greater negative perceptions to the word zero within the media is beyond me. Have they become that popular as a DJ mixer that someone feels they need to curb their sales that badly?
 
Whatever the case. Sure the word zero as far as making money and acquiring status is concerned is defini...

Apparently its all in the number of threads it does and not the number of physical cores it has

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Friday, October 29, 2010, In : technology 

This is an updated repost,  Sure core2duo dualcore laptops are great but be careful you don't pay over the odds for a dual core machine. Although it's old news you've now got corei5 and corei7 machines these days at pretty comparable prices. Obviously dualcore machines have 2 processing cores on one processor chip which is like having 2 processors in one. The number of processing threads that processor is capable of determines its simultanious processing ability.
 
- corei5 processors are basic...

There's always the disparity between the ideal & reality

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Friday, October 29, 2010, In : tech culture 


The internet is a place where the ideal of net neutrality is not exactly the reality, even if the so called claimed commercially driven interest of big companies trying to undermine net neutrality was no longer a factor in any hypothetical sense. But just as in the unvirtual world any potentially far and widely mass reaching medium is controlled to a certain degree. Cue the craziness in Afghanistan. So even Google's ideal of an uncensored internet is far from the reality even amidst the freed...
