Uninstalling Wubi.

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

Ever wonder what would happen if you uninstalled Wubi from you unistallation folder in the control panel? Well here is what happens: First you go to the control panel, click uninstall an application, go down to Wubi. Now double click on Wubi, click off save iso image click next. Now that you have uninstalled Wubi I can say that if you restart your computer it will boot back into windows again without a hitch.

European Union Fines Microsoft 1.3 Billion Dollars.

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

The European Union is at it again by fining Microsoft $1.3 Billion Dollars for bundling their Windows Media Player, Internet Explorer and other applications together with their newest operating system, Windows Vista. It is said that Microsoft is the first ever company in the EU to ever get fined for non-compliance after an anti-trust lawsuit against them. The 1.3 billion dollar fines amount from June 21st 2006 to October 21st 2007.

Overall this does not look so good for Microsoft. Sometime they will run out of money while this lawsuit goes on. Personally I think that Microsoft should just do what the EU says to be sure that they can still sell their products in that market, though I do not see them choosing that option anyways.

WordPress 2.5

Wednesday, February 27th, 2008

If you have gone to http://ryanorser.com and have gotten this page empty your cache for your browser and try it again.

This release of WordPress, WordPress 2.5, comes out on March 10th, 2008. Since the developers of WordPress decided to stop the development of 2.4, which was scheduled for release in February (comment if I am wrong,) they have put all that work that went into 2.4 into 2.5.

Hopefully all goes well and we will see the release in 12 days from today (February 27th, 2008.)

Thanks for reading,

Review of FileZilla 3.0.x

Monday, February 18th, 2008

This is a simple review of Filezilla 3.0.x.

This new version of Filezilla, I believe is in beta still. As usual it is easy to use and may give you a bit of problems if you are coming from the version 2.x.x. They have slimmed down the user interface by letting go of the commands, but they have also put in the successful, failed and queued transfers. Overall it looks great. I will put in a screen shot to show you how it looks. Filezilla is fast as always (depending on your internet connection) and looks great in Windows Vista. I have been able to send files to my server from school and it has been as easy as dragging and dropping into another window frame.

Over all I would give this a 4/5 for looks and a 4/5 for speed. Overall I would give this application an 8/10. It is good to use and will make work a lot easier.
