Last January 30, 2014, St. Paul University Philippines Conducted the Cyber Summit 2014. Let me thank you for supporting the event. Being one of the people to share my knowledge on the said event was a great privilege. To those who attended, thank you! May we see each other again.

To those asking for sample codes, I will be updating this post.

When Windows Setup Cannot Run on Your Computer’s Hardware

I reformatted a netbook and it ran the setup fine. Until the step where it makes you set up username, password, etc.

Windows popped up a “Windows setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer’s hardware.” error.

It’s not yet the end of the world. There’s a solution!

Hit Shift+F10 on your keyboard and it will bring up the command prompt.
Type cd.. twice and it will bring you to the root directory.
Type Cd c:\windows\system32\oobe
Then type Msoobe

This will force windows to the OOBE (Out-of-the-box experience) setup.

I hope this helps!

Rock Paper Scissors (Math Version)

Good day! I got really bored so I came up with this.

Rock, paper, scissors (Math Version)

1 – rock
2 – paper
3 – scissors

Player1 – Player2 = difference

1 – 2 = -1 (p1 loses)
1 – 3 = -2 (p1 wins)

2 – 1 = 1 (p1 wins)
2 – 3 = -1 (p1 loses)

3 – 1 = 2 (p1 loses)
3 – 2 = 1 (p1 wins)

P1 wins:
-2
1

P1 loses:
-1
2

The positive number determines who the winner is while the negative number determines the player who loses.

I really don’t know the significance of what I did here. Kindly enlighten me. 🙂

I don’t have that much space on my HDD to install linux so I had to find an alternative. (My Linux disk failed so ggwpripseagateyousuck)

One problem of windows users is “alt+tabbing” throughout a multitude of opened windows. When everything is clumped up into one big “alt+tab” list, it starts to get cluttered.

For someone being a developer, this really gets into my nerves and productivity gets reduced especially when you are doing a project. My capstone project was a web-based system. One of which I do is test it on different browsers to test compatibility. Switching between these browsers through alt+tab is quite time consuming.

That is when I switched to linux. In addition to our project being run on linux, I switched OS because of the workspace. If you might say, it’s like having different desktops on one machine. There would be less clutter and switching between workspaces is much faster.

I don’t really know why Windows has not incorporated this in their OS much like linux did with its multitude of distros.

As an alternative, I would suggest VirtuaWin.

VirtuaWin is a virtual desktop manager for the Windows operating system (Win9x/ME/NT/Win2K/XP/Win2003/Vista/Win7). A virtual desktop manager lets you organize applications over several virtual desktops (also called ‘workspaces’). Virtual desktops are very common in Unix/Linux, and once you get accustomed to using them, they become an essential part of a productive workflow.
