Win7 experience


How y'all doing?

I'm just fine, enjoying my Christmas vacations (from the 24th of December 2008 until the 7th of January 2009).

After reading that the beta 1 version of the Windows 7 was released (build 7000), I decided to try them on my PC and see for myself if they are hot or not.

So, I created a virtual machine using the Sun VirtualBox with 493MB of RAM and 7GB hard disk. For the Windows 7, I used the Windows 7 Beta 1 Build 7000 x86 DVD (REPACK-WinBeta). The installation worked out just fine, even with the petty system I own (Athlon64 3500+ 2.2GHz, 1GB RAM, 120+160+320GB hard disks, Windows Vista 64) and the even pettier setup for the windows 7 installation (493MB RAM, 7GB hard disk; specifications that sound just like a netbook).

The only problem that I faced is that windows 7 and the virtual network adapter of the virtual machine won't work together, as windows don't have a suitable driver. Besides that, the system worked perfectly and the feeling of the interface is ok.

Name meaning


How y'all doin'? I'm good, I'm good!

Today I learnt the meaning of my name (elias, for those who don't know). I was curious about it, since a few days ago I was talking with my coworkers during lunchtime about origins of names. I knew that my name was Jewish, but I hadn't a clue what it meant in Hebrew.

So, I did the obvious sinister act.. I Googled it :P

My name's etymology according to Wikipedia is this: Elias' meaning is "My god is Yah" or "Yah is god" or "YHWH is my el" or whatever :P

It's rather lame to be named "Yah is god" I think. It just sounds to me like a 14 year old girl would say: "XYZ-huge-pop-star is GOD, he is sooooooooo hot" or something :P

Obviously El means God.

I prefer El. "Hi, my name is El.. Do you know what 'El' means?.. El means God!" :P

Well, till next time.. Ta ta :D
elias a.k.a. diluted
