    What languages can you speak (or aspire to speak)?

    Portuguese is my native language, I can speak English and Southern :p and can survive in Dutch and maybe in German (I can't really hold a conversation in German) Because of the Latin mother tongue, I can understand and fake Spanish pretty well, as well as understand some Italian (written). I...

    Whats in store for the next Windows?

    I think that is the key. If you think of it, Windows 7, to the general public, "looks a lot like Vista but runs much better". So if they called it Vista 2.0 or something it would make some sense, but it could have been a flop given the bad rep Vista acquired because of the early problems (mostly...

    Welcome Red I used XP for work and 7 for fun. And it is fun! I wish they would migrate to Win7 at work, but they way our IT guys are, I will have to wait until Windows 9 for them to migrate to 7...

    What would you like to see in Windows 8?

    Tks Wolfgang. Interesting. Is that the free version? Did it image the full 20G or a differential backup? That is on your SSDs, right? I like Macrium too and I use the free version, I created a Scheduled Task to image my hard drive on my work laptop. I always erase the previous image and...

    What would you like to see in Windows 8?

    Kari, first, very nice work. Be it registered here that this was your first Photoshop work. First of many! Regarding Windows 8, I actually would like to see a good and fast differential backup possibility. I am starting to have a problem with Windows 7 backup feature, I run out of disk space...

    Custom Made Signatures and Avatars

    Thanks Grant, it looks awesome. It reminds me of my birth place, São Paulo (the picture is NY, right?). I went looking for a similar picture of a building in SP, but apparently nobody has made a bottom-up picture of a glass sided building. I will have to make one myself next time. Or look...

    Custom Made Signatures and Avatars

    I like that, Grant! Could you or Sergio make one for me? I Like the metallic letters, I also loved the glass on Dinesh's. I just don't want it too tall. And just "Wally". Tks

    128-bit ONLY?

    I think it is not only the 128-bit addresses, but also the floating point operations that could take advantage of it, besides other inner workings of the CPU. I leave it to other more hardware-proficient than me (I can't tell a AND from a NAND gate anymore...) Now, how much memory is actually...
