I heard that C# and Java is not all that different, though I don't know if I'll learn C# in the near future. I believe Java is derived from C as well, but I'll learn about programming languages more this semester.

I'm actually working on a project in C# right now, but yeah. I might try Java as I mentioned there since they're so similar.

Finally got a smartphone!




But because I only had 50 Euros to spend, I bought a used Xperia Mini from way back in 2011. Its basic, Adreno 205 and only 512mb ram, but its good enough till I save up cash for something more.Small screen rocks btw, even though I prefer the 4-4.5 inch range.

I find 4" displays to be something very nice, to be honest. Not too small, not too large.

I'm actually writing C code now. Funny how I got from C++ to C, but we had to because we're now going... uh, lower.

Yeah I love em too, that's what I'm saying. But because I only had 50 bucks, I bought that which has a 3 inch screen, where the problem is. Otherwise the 5MP camera is great, good radio, and it can run temple run 2 pretty well.

Congrats on the new smartphone, Stud Muffin :D

I usually aim at phones that were released 1-2 years ago. I don't like being an early adopter to phones that were released the same year.

Breaking a phone is never something you'd want to happen to your own smartphone. :3

I've got a ZTE Blade III. Why I even bothered to get that phone even though it was cheap I'll never know.

When I do have more cash in hand however I intend to get the Nexus 5. Man that thing looks sexy as hell, Kitkat 4.4 wooo

I don't mind being an early adopter. Sure, you get all the bugs, but you may also get perks that others don't.

Example: Nintendo's Ambassador program for early adopters of the 3DS before the price drop.

Anyone use virtualization software (eg. VMWare, VirtualBox) on here? If so, which one would you all recommend to run linux on windows 7?

Ugh, I hope there isn't a virus on my server. I had to reboot it earlier tonight for updates and now when I try to log back in, I'm refused. It says "loading your personal settings" then goes to "saving your settings". Same happens with any account I use.

Use a Linux LiveCD (any distro) to boot and scan it.

At least the files are still on my server if I need to open it up and get the hard drive out of it and get the important files. But I'm gonna try refreshing it with the Windows files to see if all is well. And if not, then I'll just get a Linux LiveCD then check for viruses and then reinstall from scratch.

Some antimalware providers use a live CD based on Windows Preinstallation Environment, the same environment that you end up in during Windows setup and System Recovery/Recovery Environment. I wonder how they perform compared to a *nix-based antimalware live CD.

Well, using an antimalware CD is out of the question for me, considering I don't have any :p I used MSE on the machine and last night noticed strange behavior when the fan kept getting loud with minimal CPU usage and the fact that the virus definitions weren't updating on it, despite me telling it to.

The machine had 40 weeks of uptime as well.

You could certainly download a disc image file of an antimalware live CD if needed.

I'm currently using VMWare to run Windows 7 on my Macbook, but it's only for my school program because there's a couple programs that do not have a Mac alternative. Having installed Windows 7 before separately, without using a virtualization program, I prefer the former over the latter mainly because it means having another program open and I don't like having multiple things open. Not entirely sure if it's just my Macbook, but VMWare running Win7 runs very slow. I thought 4GB RAM would be sufficient...But yeah, not sure if that helped you. I'm sorry >.<

I use VirtualBox because it's free and what we used in my schooling in college, so I'm familiar with it. It's pretty stable I've found. I couldn't tell you if VMWare Player is on par or anything, though, as I've never used it.

You should install the system updates and reboot at least once a month in the future. :P

That right there is the question of the day. The big thing is, they're probably not free.

VirtualBox sucks with Windows 9x operating systems and drivers, and that's the only con I can think of. Other than that, Virtualbox is definitely a stable operating system virtualization environment for sure, and it's very universal with just about every operating system (except for those that are closed-source to devices like iOS)

The thing is they can be free. Surprised me, but seeing as it's Microsoft's own product, yeah. If anything, I'd reckon that Windows-based antimalware live CDs should be more aware of what's going on in a Windows system and should have less of a chance of making unexpected changes to surrounding data and/or the file system.

I use VMware Player for my virtualization needs, as it turns out VirtualBox ain't cutting it for my needs. You can create VM boxes with it - it should be good enough for me, since I'm a student. :D

You reminded me that I used to use VM programs like VMware, Virtualbox and Virtual PC. I missed my old days of installing Windows 98 in my VM box just for fun. And I like it. Lately I'm using Virtualbox more, one of the reasons was because of Aero theme support for Windows Vista and up.

Hmm, I didn't realize that Microsoft made those.. would it work on Server 2003 though? I would at least hope it does..

That may actually come in handy for me for the PCs of relatives. I think I'll download it now.

Does your school give you a license for it? Or is this just a personal license that you obtained for yourself?

EDIT: Zach, be prepared to phase that Server 2003 box out within the next year: http://support.microsoft.com/lifecyc...ilter=FilterNO
