Train Tracker Update (04/06/2012 12:30:15 PM)
Hmm... looks like some people aren't happy with the intention of Melbourne Train Tracker for Windows Phone (app here). I'm starting to look at implementing something to the effect. The app doesn't promise Time Tables yet, but happy to investigate! Stay tuned.

Windows Vista ... plausible (14/05/2009 07:22:18 PM)

For those who have followed this blog, or know me - knows that I absolutely hate the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system. It is slow, poorly coded, battery draining and incomplete (just take a look at display settings!!!). Anyway, with Windows 7 on the horizon, I figured I would get myself a copy of Windows Vista x64. If you are a student with an * e-mail address, you can purchase a copy for $80 off

Anyway, I installed Windows Vista x64 Ultimate Edition onto my PC. My PC isn't slow by any means, it has an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0GHz, 8GB of RAM (DDR-800), 2 x 1TB Western Digital Black drives (RAID-1) and an ATI Radeon HD4850 512MB - Vista happens to be running reasonably well. I suppose I would expect any Operating System to run that well under any Operating System.

I haven't used it that much - games are still slower than XP, but if you are sick of slow Vista - maybe spend a good $1,000 upgrading your PC and you may just get something reasonably fast.
