Seven Remix XP

December 25th, 2009 | Posted by tonyscha in Technology - (0 Comments)

So I was unhappy about windows 7 and I didnt feel like messing around with it to get it to work properly with my older PC, so I seen on lifehacker an article called Make Windows XP look like Windows 7. I thought I would try it out, and so far I really like it, it gives xp a new look. In the end the main reason I like vista and 7 is due to the graphics user interface anyway, but due to lack of hardware, I am going to run xp.

Here is the google translate link

My wallpaper I found is from the game EVE Online which I dont play, but the art reminds me of Battlestar Gallatica and Stargate

Dropbox Review

March 4th, 2009 | Posted by tonyscha in Technology - (0 Comments)

Alright to be honest I am writing a review so I can post my referal link to try to get more space on dropbox. Here is the referal link. If you sign up, you and I will both get 250 more MB on top of the 2 Gbytes. So if you sign up, I thank you in advance!!.  With that note if your a current user of dropbox, you can get more space by following this link.

Dropbox allows you to have a common folder on multiple computers and the web. So you install dropbox on the computers you want to sync folders with. I believe the default Windows XP folder is ( C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\My Documents\My Dropbox ) But you can move it around. Then any files or folders you drop in there are synced with the online dropbox website. If you have multiple computers each computer will receive updates of the new files synced. I currently have a ubuntu, Windows xp, and Windows Vista Box synced up. It also has a OS X installer.  It works very well to always have the files I commonly use.Also if your on the go you can access the dropbox website it will allow you to download a file or look at a picture. Another nice feature is the public folder which allows you to put files you want to share with the internet.

The screenshot I took shows a few folders sync ( blue arrows ) while the folder icons with green arrows are all up to date.


Another thing dropbox does is puts an icon ( I know ANOTHER ICON) in your taskbar and shows a little picture if its syncing or up to date. I am not really to sure what else to say about dropbox. If you have any questions or comments leave them below.

Sick but not Sick

November 21st, 2008 | Posted by tonyscha in Technology - (0 Comments)

What a week, I almost stayed home 3 full days of work for Alexis,  the first day was pink eye, then Thursday she had a fever, so I had to stay home with her for 24 hours. On Tuesday Kayla and Abigail were both sick. I have been fine so far, knock knock on some wood. Everyone is feeling better now.

Tonight we went  Christmas shopping… spent way to much money, atleast the toy’r’us people have jobs. Its crazy when you have to buy Birthday and Christmas presents for two kids at the same time.

I was trying to tell Kayla what I wanted for Christmas, so I will put it here because she will never read it… hehe

Orange Box

Rubix Cube… even if I will never figure it out

and probably anything technology related but I can only think of 1 thing, a cell phone.

On the technology side of things, I installed WIndows XP on my Desktop. Kayla made fun of me, but I wanted to be able to play games hehe. But I can claim I want to program in c# which is much easier under visual studios. I still have linux installed but I haven’t used it yet.

Also Xbox updated their dashboard… I am unsure of I like the changes. I wish I had netflix, so I could checkout the netflix player. But when I have a HTPC it doesn’t really matter. Check out the new xbox experiance here.

Also for you gmail users, check out the themes.  The terminal theme is my favorite.
