Stupid technical facts and tips


#1

Post random, stupid facts and tips about random, stupid stuff.

Fact: On Windows 7 pushing the Windows Key + X will bring up the mobility center where you can quickly change laptop-specific settings.

I’m brain-dead at the moment - so I can’t think of any. Good idea though!

I guess my random stupid fact right now is that my brain is tired.

Oh - and I learned yesterday that when I disconnect my HP laptop from the docking station to go to a meeting, be sure to lock it first so that the screen will come back up when I open it as a regular laptop.


#3

Always wait till the second service pack to come out before upgrading to a newer Windows OS.


#4

well crap. The laptop I got has Win 7, but I don’t know what service pack it is. Is there a 2nd service pack yet?


#5

No. sorry. Please enjoy your beta testing for free for Micro$oft.


#6

Random fact 2:
Engines today could be a lot more efficient if they could run hotter. There has been research into ceramic motors but I don’t know how far they have gotten.


#7

Actually, Windows 7 went through an extensive public beta test, called the Release Candidate. It was installed on millions of computers.


#8

Oh. I thought it was known as “Vista”.


#9

So was win 98, win 98 se, win 2k, and win xp

They were “leaked builds” that phoned home when something broke.

But have fun with the Win 7 beta you’re testing.

Cause like, It’s a heck of a lot more stable than any rc 2 OS Microsoft ever released…

LOL!!!

Testing update: so far so good. But I don’t do much on this laptop except surf the web & play diner dash. :wink:

I will say that it does come on a whole lot faster!!!
