Currently, the official Avast for Mac Edition available for download is still at version 2.74, released somewhere in 2007.
This version still has many annoyances and bugs that have not yet been resolved (one of these issues is the ability to run automatically in the background, without the main window popping up at start up each time).
Luckily, the Avast Forum has a post, providing a new release candidate is available for download for some time now. The build is also a bit outdated but has at least many fixes that aren't present in the official release.
The direct download link is: http://public.avast.com/~cimbal/avast.3.11.zip.
I noticed this in the About box of OpenOffice 3.3:
This is pretty much the result of what happens when a major company is on a buying spree to acquire technology from various other companies, and leaving a lot of the community developers seamlingly standing in the cold (although there's a small footnote mentioning their contributions).
Everything you need to set up and use VDI for free...
That's what Citrix is providing nowadays with XenDesktop Express. It provides full VDI for up to 10 users, and can work with XenServer, Hyper-V and VMware.
The full link to everything is this one:
Something to remember: escaping entities (e.g. when you have table or field names that are the same as reserved words) is possible using square brackets
CREATE TABLE [User] ... SELECT * FROM [User]
I had to use this while renaming logical names, which had a dot in their name.
In VMware ESXi 4.1, by default, the video drivers are not correctly installed. This is because of the fact that the old driver (which is installed by default) is a WDM type of driver. This type of driver has been kicked out of Windows 7 and Windows 2008R2 in favour of the newer WDDM driver architecture. As a result, the video is reverted to the Standard VGA adapter, which has terrible performance.
However, installing the VMware Tools does provide a correct driver, even though it is not installed by default. To install it, see the second chapter of the article: Windows 2008 R2 console freezes in vSphere console.
While not officially supported, it is possible to have Adobe Flash on your Android 2.1 (Eclair) device.
You can do so by downloading and installing the package included in this post. Note that you will have to have third party applications allowance enabled so that you can install it. Possibly, on some devices, you have to install Apps Installer to install the package.
Flash player works, but because of missing components in 2.1, there are some performance issues.
One of the neat things about OpenOffice is the many extensions available. Oracle has a PDF import extension for OpenOffice Draw, which can import just about any unsecured PDF document.
This allows you to open PDF documents directly from the menu. There are still a few quirks now and then, but they don't spoil the usefulness of the extension.
Windows 7 and Windows 2008R2 Service Pack 1 has been released.
It is available through Windows Update, but for those that require the full installer, can find it here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=c3202ce6-4056-4059-8a1b-3a9b77cdfdda&displaylang=en.
Since Acrobat Reader X, by default, no toolbar is shown while in Read Mode display. Instead, a heads-up black toolbar with minimalistic functions is used. This is the default behaviour but can be turned off.
To do that, open Reader, choose Edit, then Preferences. In the tab Internet, uncheck Display in Read Mode by default, then press OK.
Because the official website of 7-Zip (http://www.7-zip.org/) is currently offline, I'm mirroring the latest version here.
EDIT: the official site has been fixed and is online again.
