In this article, you’ll be learning how to install the Octopress Framework on your Raspberry Pi. We’ve tried it for some time now, and it is just plain amazing to work on. A blogging framework for hackers indeed.
SkyDrive – Microsoft’s very own personal cloud storage solution, has been quite a pleasant experience since its conception over 6 years ago. At the time, SkyDrive was more of an experimental service to separately sign up for. In April, 2012, SkyDrive became available for every single Microsoft account whether you use it or not, and is now deeply integrated into Windows 8. Sure, it doesn’t seem any better on non-Windows systems than other cloud storage system, until now. SkyDrive for iOS has brought forth a much needed feature – for me, at least.
The most recent Microsoft Build conference happened a few days ago and to be honest, we were waiting for this day ever since we realised Windows 8 is not yet done amazing us. We’re quite predictable, unlike Microsoft of course, that way and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us next. Windows 8.1 preview has been made publicly available and after a day of using it we love it more than would to have a stable internet connection; seriously, this post should have been up days ago.
Earlier, I had posted a tutorial on how to create a virtual hard disk. If you know me well, you probably have not read it because (blah blah blah, add at least two paragraphs of whining… I could take the time to actually write them but that is unnecessay delay. The point is you suck!)
A few years ago I had published a blog post on the feature that caught my eye. It was about an amazing ability of Windows 7 that I had not completely described – it was booting from a VHD. Yes, creating VHDs and using them from within an OS is cool but cooler than that is using the VHD itself as the base to it.
