Parkview Square is an office building located in the Downtown Core Planning Area, Central Region, Singapore. It is situated along North Bridge Road, and is near the major commercial hub at Marina Centre. It is next to Bugis MRT Station, Bugis Junction, and The Gateway, and straddles the Rochor Road and Ophir Road corridor.
Parkview Square is one of the more expensive office buildings in Singapore. The occupancy rate for this building was rather low when it first opened. However, as the economy improved, the occupancy rate for this building grew higher steadily. Besides commercial offi...
In my country there is/are laboratories that are certified and work with Lenovo, HP... People send their laptops there and then are sorry about it. I sent my 5 year old HP there and received it with scratched screen.
The user page needs some love. We've been working on a bit of a redesign and now we want your feedback! Our goals were:
Improve the UX: reorganize the information in ways that make a bit more sense (instead of the current jam the data in wherever it can fit model of UX)
Make it modular, so we...
@lovesh If it is small, You can use Dropbox with Lan Sync... but, to be honest, I have tried many things over the years for syncing - Microsoft Synctoy works well, but, nothing is perfect... Dropbox is the best I have tried, but, it would be nice for a solution not involving third parties
@Boris_yo Well... I use my mouse (a £4 regular usb one with a scroll wheel) on a regular desk, no pad - and it works fine... I just skim read and any sort of mat/textured surface is usually a big no-no... to be honest, you have a nice mouse... unless you are cutting down, enjoy it!
if I had unlimited money, I would buy gaming keyboard/mice... but, I don't and there isn't "many" benefits, so, I go cheap.
@JourneymanGeek I really want a mechanical one after reading Jeff's blog post... but... to be honest, my cheap one works... and, I like replacing it every few months... feels so nice to type on a crisp keyboard
maybe a more expensive one will feel good / won't go bad :/
Mind you, I have had this one for about 6 months... it doesn't exactly feel bad...
@JourneymanGeek Lucky :P I wanted to buy some thing in Malaysia, but, I was shocked at the prices... Could only find latest stuff from Dell as all local shops were just selling old stock at over the top prices :/
I hope to go to Malaysia again soon... Maybe I should try to get down to Singapore!
Bookmarked! ... In Malaysia I went to something similar (I think)... It was a 5 floor (maybe 7, can't remember) shopping centre just full of IT shops... I like the random USB gadgets - finger print readers, graphics tablets and more that were cheap - <£10 e.t.c. .... I wish I bought some! But as I said, laptops and normal stuff were just over priced IMHO
Mind you, if you want a confession, When I was about 4/5 and I got my first CD, I stuck it in my Dad's computer's 5 1/4 inch drive... I figured, if it fits in the hole, it will work (good motto!).... I think it is still in there! That computer is in the attic...
@WilliamHilsum Please note the article is not aimed towards Microsoft, but rather to the hardware vendors that should implement it right in their BIOS as in the ability to disable the mechanism if you know the BIOS password or something like that.
They just want to watch closely the implementation of hardware vendors such that they haven't interpreted it in a wrong way which would be a pain to run anything else on the computer. It's really easy for a hardware vendor to be lazy and not providing the ability to not use the feature...
I just can't really think of many/any technologies that really have locked other vendors out... with the exception of closed hardware items such as phones/i devices etc... but, truthfully, you know what you are getting when you buy it
the whole DRM thing with Vista was just one example of press rubbish that never really happened
It is the progression seen that is what I hate, mabey today its not so bad, but they keep doing more lockouts and controlls and people keep rolling over for it and even paying for it.
The people speaking out dont want to see things head in that direction, if enough people have a fit, the bean counters might decide it is a bad idea. if everyone gives in and even loves it, then we will all get it, even the ones who dont want it.
Trusted installer , basic same thing, protect the system from virus, lock the user out of it too. worst case, the virus is the trusted installer and the user is just a loozer :-)
first 2 certificates that were hacked , microsofts :-) Dutch company that issues certs got Hacked , etc etc. round and round they put 18 layers of garbage in to protect us, and i can still show thousands of users with viruses
I actually have had a system that the audio stuff was screwed up because of the DRM filter, on my own machine.
@Psycogeek Nothing is enforced with trusted installer in the slightest... I didn't see/know about MS certificates being hacked :/ ... and, all code signing, even for drivers is for the good of the entire ecosystem - BSODs off of drivers are MUCH MUCH lower now than Windows 95 days because of it... and, getting a certificate doesn't exactly cost that much... but, you can easily disable it all anyway.
@Psycogeek What DRM filter? Are you talking about loopback? in which case, find a different audio driver/card that allows it.
the DRM filter that came in via some update to XP, way more complex than i am, but it really screwed my system up royal, I didnt even know or care what it was , untill i attempted to track down what had happened.
I am not alone, there have been small program developers who have indicated that things are getting harder for them, some thinking about giving up completly. it is a progression, first it was certs, then signing, making simple things more complex for the pepole who were just working for free for the community
@Psycogeek AFAIK, this isn't a Windows restriction, some companies distribute driver updates through Windws update, and many added these restrictions - but, the updates are optional and you can always hunt down old versions.
@Psycogeek Signing makes it no harder - same as it has always been... you just type one command when you are finished to sign the driver/program and you are done!
I just think that this negativity is unjustified! sorry!
it got between the drivers, I know what i saw, and later figured what happend, and did fix it, at the time i was seriously ticked off, and wrote it up in a rage , you know one of those unreadable posts :-)
it was not a disable? it broke stuff when it got in there, when the driver loaded it would crash the whole computer. It was worth whining about at the time. I retracted back to the previous Service pack, and avoided it for a long time. Eventually i went into the DRM mode anyways, with different drivers??
@Psycogeek Sorry, I don't mean to sound so bad - I just highly doubt that was DRM, it sounds more like your driver was either using undocumented APIs which happens all the time, or, it was just written bad... There is always a chance microsoft changed things, but, they hardly ever make (breaking) changes in service packs.
@Psycogeek Not at all, I have been very critical at MS over some things, but, the DDK is clearly documented, MSDN exists with millions of examples and more... I can still run some programs that worked in Windows 95... Microsoft are very careful with backwards compatibility.... but, you get a lot of people, especially driver manufacturers who do funky things such as undocumented APIs, backdoor macros and more
in XP any standard person could Remove the entire existance of a program off thier computer, and had to have the CD to even think of installing it. I would always remove all the "server" stuff off the "pro" took minutes. Now with the grand secure system, a virus can install servers that i know nothing about :-) and turn my system into thier playground. was that a security feature?
@Psycogeek No, but, that isn't just Microsoft - it is undocumented, or in some cases documented APIs to go under the kernel, it has existed in every version of Windows (was only abused in xp) and it is also in Linux and OSX, just, under reported when those systems get infected.
It seems to be a common question here, but I want to know, based on a configuration (processor, used memory modules, video chip, number of fans, etc), which is the better power supply to fulfill an specific need. Is there any calculation I can do for knowing that?
The popular knowledge just says...
yes, it is awesome having your name everywhere... a secret if you want to get elected for mod someday: help run the site with your current powers... VTC, edit, etc, and it will put your name out there and people will see it and vote for you if they like what you are doing... @SimonSheehan
@studiohack No problem :) Definitely something i've been considering doing next time it rolls around though... If i'm going to be on the site as much as i am, may as well try to involve myself to the fullest :P.
@SimonSheehan if you're already involved in editing, VTCing, etc, and you get elected, its not that much of a change when you get a diamond... you just get a few more tools and look at a lot more junk :P
@SimonSheehan not sure what you mean, but you're welcome :P
I don't suppose any expert video streaming people are about? ... I have probably already missed her, I forgot about it... but, my mum is singing in a competition... sweetadswebcast.com I don't suppose you know of an easy way to record the stream? ... Last time there was something like this, I did it, but it took me about an hour... don't fancy doing it again! Just hoping someone knows a good way!
