|cpu||1.60GHz intel atom n270|

i partitioned the 16g ssd into two 8g partitions. i also used an 8g 30mbps sd card for a swap space for linux and a page file for windows.
ubuntu 12.04 lts
i installed ubuntu 12.04 using the minimal installation iso from a usb drive (the iso is only about 30m). this allowed me to heavily customize the install. the total space used on the drive is less than 2.5g – and thats with me adding in other programs and libraries. i went with xfce for the desktop environment. i had tried lxde and did not really enjoy it. below is a screenshot of htop after the os was fully loaded and running for 5+ minutes.
windows xp sp3
i used nlite and modified the stock iso from the oem cd for the 1116nr. (i will have another post with the modifications i made, including the various registry changes) the total size of the iso, with drivers slip-streamed in, was 240m. the os, with all software (including antivirus, etc) was under 5g. below is a screenshot of the task manager after the os was fully loaded and running for 5+ minutes.
overall i am quite pleased with the 1116nr. both ubuntu and windows are fairly responsive and perform far better than i had anticipated.
i can never remember my service tag and i never remember where i wrote it down. to make things more difficult for myself, i have my dell inspiron motherboard in a cooler master case (very customized system now)
to find your dell service tag via windows command line
wmic csproduct get vendor,name,identifyingnumber
that command will bring up the service tag, name and vendor of the pc
so the other day i had to import an address book from windows live mail into gmail. the issue was that every time i did an export from windows live mail, it would mess up the csv, so when gmail read it it imported all the email addresses and data into the notes field. however, gmail could import a .vcf just fine. so i exported all the contacts to .vcf format and dumped them into one folder. then ran
copy /B *.vcf all_in_one.vcf. this copied all the .vcf’s into one file. i was then able to import the file into gmail no problem.
you can run this using the run command, or access it via windows explorer address bar or create a shortcut. any way you do it will bring up a massive list tasks for windows 7. it was originally developed by the windows developers to show search results, so whenever you search for something in the control panel, this page is searched.
here it is -
in the linux world, we can always
grep a command. today i needed to be able to do the same thing in dos.
Searches for a text string in a file or files.
FIND [/V] [/C] [/N] [/I] [/OFF[LINE]] "string" [[drive:][path]filename[ ...]]
/V Displays all lines NOT containing the specified string.
/C Displays only the count of lines containing the string.
/N Displays line numbers with the displayed lines.
/I Ignores the case of characters when searching for the string.
/OFF[LINE] Do not skip files with offline attribute set.
"string" Specifies the text string to find.
Specifies a file or files to search.
If a path is not specified, FIND searches the text typed at the prompt
or piped from another command.
so, for example, if you wanted to find just the system model of a pc using
systeminfo, you would type to following:
systeminfo | find /i "system model"
it can also be used with
netstat -ano | find /i "80"
1: open cmd “run as administrator”
2: then type the following:
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=realid dir=out protocol=tcp remoteport=1119 action=block
disable firewall rule (on real id)
netsh advfirewall firewall set rule realid new enable=no
enable firewall rule (off real id)
netsh advfirewall firewall set rule realid new enable=yes
activate the firewall rule only in the character selection screen!
