Microsoft prepare Vista SP1

RUMOURS ARE A-FLUTTER of Microsoft releasing its Service Pack 1 RC to testers on the first of December, reports this ZDnet blog.

The vole is said to be testing the SP1 RC build internally at present, build number 17051. After the RC build is released, first to testers then to the general public, Microsoft is hoping to let loose the final SP1 code in Q1, 2008.

A preview build had been released earlier this month to 15,000 candidates. The new release details are a tad blurry though, with it being unclear whether the RC Vista SP1 will be made available to Microsoft Developer Network testers.

It seems this may be the case, with a note accidentally posted on the MSDN site earlier this month about a SP1 code download.

Virus dalam removable device

Mesti korang selalu kena virus kan?
trend virus sekarang ni merebak melalui removable device macam thumbdrive, pendrive, HDD external dan lain-lain.

so macam mana pembuat virus tu mengenakan user macam kita ni supaya execute file yang mengandungi code-code yang 'jahat' tu? trick dia mudah saja, melalui file autorun.inf yang telah di taip supaya kalau tekan terus pada drive atau right click.

klik untuk membesar gambar

Pada gambar di atas, trick dia mengeksploitasikan penggunaan right click, dengan membuat arahan seperti 'open', 'explore' dan 'scan for viruses' apabila di klik akan mengexecutekan file yang berbahaya. So sebagai user bagaimana hendak mengelakkan diri?

klik untuk membesar gambar

Bagi aku, cara paling mudah adalah semasa membukak windows explorer tu, klik pada folder lepas tu pilih la drive apa yang korang nak bukak. Dengan cara ini lebih selamat. Atau cara lain adalah mengdisablekan terus fungsi autorun pada setiap drive, tapi kesan buruk dia kalau ada game yang menggunakan fungsi autorun kira payah sikit la.

Overclocking Graphic Cards

Graphics cards can also be overclocked, using utilities such as Omega driver, or the PEG Link Mode on ASUS motherboards. Overclocking a video card usually shows a much better result in gaming than overclocking a processor or memory. Just like overclocking a processor, sufficient cooling is a thing that must be alerted. Many graphics cards overheat and burn out when overclocked too much.

Sometimes, it is possible to see that a graphics card is pushed beyond its limits before any permanent damage is done by observing on-screen distortions known as artifacts. Two such discriminated "warning bells" are widely understood: green-flashing, random triangles appearing on the screen usually correspond to overheating problems on the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) itself, while white, flashing dots appearing randomly (usually in groups) on the screen often mean that the card's RAM (memory) is overheating. It is common to run into one of those problems when overclocking graphics cards. Showing both symptoms at the same time usually means that the card is severely pushed beyond its heat/speed/voltage limits. If seen at normal speed, voltage and temperature, they may indicate faults with the card itself.

Even 'cap ayam' brand can overclock. (-8

Some overclockers use a hardware voltage modification where a potentiometer is applied to the video card to manually adjust the voltage. This results in much greater flexibility, as overclocking software for graphics cards is rarely able to freely adjust the voltage. Voltage mods are very risky and may result in a dead video card, especially if the voltage modification ("voltmod") is applied by an inexperienced individual. It is also worth mentioning that adding physical elements to the video card immediately voids the warranty (even if the component has been designed and manufactured with overclocking in mind, and has the appropriate section in its warranty).

Alternatives to Graphics Card Overclocking

Flashing and Unlocking are two popular ways to gain performance out of a video card, without technically overclocking.

Flashing refers to using the BIOS of another card, based on the same core and design specs, to "override" the original BIOS, thus effectively making it a higher model card; however, 'flashing' can be difficult, and sometimes a bad flash can be irreversible. Sometimes stand-alone software to modify the BIOS files can be found, i.e. NiBiTor, (GeForce 6/7 series are well regarded in this aspect). It is not necessary to acquire a BIOS file from a better model video card (although it should be said that the card which BIOS is to be used should be compatible, i.e. the same model base, design and/or manufacture process, revisions etc.). For example, video cards with 3D accelerators (the vast majority of today's market) have two voltage and speed settings - one for 2D and one for 3D - but were designed to operate with three voltage stages, the third being somewhere in the middle of the aforementioned two, serving as a fallback when the card overheats or as a middle-stage when going from 2D to 3D operation mode. Therefore, it could be wise to set this middle-stage prior to "serious" overclocking, specifically because of this fallback ability - the card can drop down to this speed, reducing by a few (or sometimes a few dozen, depending on the setting) percent of its efficiency and cool down, without dropping out of 3D mode (and afterwards return to the desired full-speed clock and voltage settings).

Some cards also have certain abilities not directly connected with overclocking. For example, NVIDIA's GeForce 6600GT (AGP flavor) features a temperature monitor (used internally by the card), which is invisible to the user in the 'vanilla' version of the card's BIOS. Modifying the BIOS (taking it out, reprogramming the values and flashing it back in) can allow a 'Temperature' tab to become visible in the card driver's advanced menu.

DVD/CD copy protection

DVD/CD copy protection is a set of copy protection mechanisms that prevent users from copying compact discs (CDs) or DVDs. These mechanisms vary widely and include DRM, CD-checks, Dummy Files, illegal table of contents, over-sizing or over-burning the CD, physical errors, bad sectors and more. Many of these protection schemes rely on breaking compliance with the CD and DVD standards, leading to playback problems on some devices.

The secret of notepad

There are lot of trick or secret Microsoft product that we can reveal by typing a code. For those of you using Windows, do the following:
1.) Open an empty notepad file
2.) Type "Bush hid the facts" (without the quotes)
3.) Save it as whatever you want.

4.) Close it, and re-open it.

Can someone translate what it means??

Blu-ray Vs HD-DVD


While the proponents of both the Blu-ray and HD-DVD format would love for you to think that either format is ahead, current data shows that neither side has any major lead on the other. Toshiba has $200 HD-DVD players, which is half the cost of the cheapest Blu-ray player. Paramount also recently decided to "change sides", and is now a proponent for HD-DVD. However, the Blu-ray camp has several million Playstation 3 consoles already sold and in homes around the world. Sony CEO Howard Stringer was quoted as saying that he wished Sony could go back in time, and make sure that instead of this HD-DVD vs Blu-ray mess, there was one universal format.

Register @live email now

Microsoft has officially opened the much anticipated and well overdue registration for the new @live.com email addresses. This minor update along with the rest of wave 2 of Microsoft’s Windows Live Suite allows users to now fully take advantage of Windows Live.

Microsoft should have opened registration to the @live.com acronym when the company first started Windows Live, but nonetheless this is a welcome change. The company now gives users a change and the ability to get away from the old “Hotmail” acronym and finally puts their email service in-line with the rest of the Windows Live Suite.

Himpunan 100K hari ini

Walaupun tidak dapat permit, tapi perhimpunan Bersih tetap berjalan pada hari ini.
Kita dapat lihat pada frontpage akhbar-akhbar hari ini amaran dan ugutan dari polis, pm dan suku-sakat mereka. Tidak ketinggalan juga di stesen televisyen memaparkan mesej untuk menakut-nakutkan orang yang akan menyertai himpunan 100K berbaju kuning (Digi Yellowman mesti suka) untuk memprotes supaya pilihan raya di jalankan dengan adil dan mewajibkan penggunaan dakwat kekal pada pilihan raya akan datang.

Hak rakyat untuk berhimpun secara aman seperti yang termaktub dalam perkara 10 Perlembagaan Negara tidak boleh ditentukan atau dihalang oleh mana-mana pihak termasuk Ketua Polis Negara (KPN), Tan Sri Musa Hassan.

AJK PAS Pusat yang juga peguam Mohamed Hanipa Maidin berkata sekiranya pihak polis menangkap atau menghalang orang ramai yang ingin menuju atau pergi ke perhimpunan aman esok Sabtu 10 NOvember) bermakna pihak polis telah melakukan kesalahan dan menjalankan tugas di luar bidang kuasa malah boleh didakwa di mahkamah.

"Kalau kesesakan lalu lintas dijadikan alasan, maka kenapa dibenarkan perarakan Maulidur Rasul, Kavadi atau konvoi Putera Umno yang sama sahaja situasinya?

"Dan bagaimana polis boleh menyatakan ada kekecohan boleh terjadi sedangkan ianya belum berlaku atau memang ada perancangan polis ke arah itu?," katanya dan menabah bahawa pihak Bersih, parti-parti polistik dan NGO telah memaklumkan kepada semua ahli dan rakyat suapaya tidak melakukan apa-apa provokasi pada perhimpunan itu.

Apa-apa boleh terjadi pada hari ini, so kita tengok dan lihat la lakonan-lakonan oleh pihak-pihak tertentu untuk menjadikan perhimpunan ini tercemar. Sudah tiba masanya untuk berubah

Energizer rechargeable "D" just "AA" cells inside

NewsTarget took a look at one of the most common sizes of rechargeable batteries sold by a leading US brand, the Energizer "D" cell used in most full-sized household flashlights, among other applications. What intrigued them was that the battery's stated capacity is only 2,500 mAh, the same capacity as given for the physically much smaller "AA" size batteries.

They took apart one of Energizer's "D" batteries and found that it contained a much smaller battery inside, comparable in size to an "AA" battery, surrounded by empty airspace and a plastic shell. The "D" cell actually turned out to be just an "AA" cell inside a larger casing.

Since Energizer's rechargeable "AA" battery costs only about $3, but its rechargeable "D" battery costs $12, or four times as much, they reckon you're getting ripped off every time you buy a rechargeable "D" battery from Energizer. It would seem they've got a point.

TMnet dah improve

Firstly post ni bukan bertujuan untuk memuja-muja atau mengkeji perkhidmatan TMNET Streamyx. Pagi ni (tadi la) saya ada membuat test speed untuk broadband pakej streamyx 1Mbit RM88 kat speedtest.net, sebelum melakukan test semua client atau program-program yang ada sangkut paut pada internet telah di pause atau stop sementara.

Jadi di bawah ini adalah 2 result yang telah di test pada server KL dan Singapore

[click to enlarge]

So apa pendapat kamu semua? macam dah improve kan? 2-3 hari ni ada perasan gak speed nak browse 1 site, blog atau forum samada local atau oversea cam singkat je itu pun time pasang client torrent, flashget kalau dah close maybe lagi laju kot.

Apa-apa pn mari kita lihat compare TOP 5 negara yang internet dia laju nak mampus berserta dengan download speed (kbps) dan upload speed (kbps) diorang. Kalau dapat ISP cam diorang mesti best punya. Nak langgan cerita HD streaming ke mesti tak de lagging atau buffering.

minyak: itu kena tanya sama G la...
rakyat: haaa... (tepuk dahi).

G : Harga minyak mentah suda naik.
G : Sebab kita tak boleh nk tampung subsidi.
G : Harga minyak kita lebih murah berbanding negara lain.
G : Kita kena harungi hidup susah ini sama-sama.

Bypass OS boot up, HyperSpace

Imagine that you are in hurry in the mean time you bring your laptop in the hotspot area. You want to send an e-mail or instant messaging to your contact let say a short but important message. But the problem is as the OS like Windows got more complex, startup times also getting looonger up to 5 minutes or more to boot up before the you can use e-mail or IM.

Phoenix Technologies, the company that providing the BIOS(es) used by numerous motherboard manufacturers, now is planning a new system that can bypass Windows which knows as HyperSpace. Hyperspace is a simple OS that sits on top of the BIOS, that runs side-by-side with Windows. Apparently it can run most Windows software. Woody Hobbs, CEO Phoenix Technologies thinks it will mean that content providers will be able to create "instant-on" applications like media players, and PC system vendors will be able to embed purpose-built software into new computers.

The technology expected to start from end of next year which mean it's a looooongg way to go.

Proton BLM maybe?

Proton BLM teaser Video [NEW]

Salam dan selamat hari-hari (bak kata apek kt radio era.fm)!
kira-kira 2 minggu lepas, 28 oktober 2007 ada sorang member forum iaitu fxsense telah berjalan-jalan di Port Dickson. Hasilnya dia telah ternampak dan tertangkap kereta yang heavily camouflage di bawah tape-tape hitam yang tinggal hanyalah skriting kereta kat stesen minyak Petronas di sana. So pada kedua-dua gambar ada 2 bijik kereta dalam testing, sebelah kiri yang kurang sikit dia tutup dengan tape hitam tu warna putih mungkin engine dia mengalami masalah sket dan sebelahnya warga beige kot.

Borak-borak dengan member baru keje kat proton, dia kata rupe bentuk proton 'BLM' ni ada ala-ala vios sket tapi tengok dan lihat la hasi akhir production nanti sebab mungkin ada perubahan sikit-sikit la.

Harap-harap model yang keluar nanti tak ada sebarang masalah.

Update : kalau nak tengok full proton BLM ni tanpa ada cover2 tape hitam tu just head over to paultan.org web. Memang cun woo... klik sini.
