  • Installing GhostDoc on Vista

    I recently installed GhostDoc 1.9.5 on Vista RC2 at home. At first, I received as error towards the end of installation so I searched around a little bit to see if anyone else had seen the error. Then, as with most issues I’ve had with Vista, I decided to see if elevating the install to admin would work which seems to have worked fine.

  • More on Trackback Spam...

    Earlier this week, I posted on some major problems I was having with trackback spam. By way of a comment, Tim Rayburn pointed me to his post on Akismet support that the nightly builds of dasBlog now included.

  • Hilarity ensues when an uninstaller is incompatible on Vista

    Okay, maybe it isn’t hilarity, but it is somewhat ridiculous when Vista will let you get around a compatibility dialog warning you that a program isn’t currently compatible on this version of Windows but a similar dialog that is displayed when you try to uninstall the same application that will not let you override it *!

  • Trackback Spam Deluge!

    I finally had to disable trackbacks on my blog. Even with some of the antispam features of dasBlog, I was still getting hit like crazy. Just today, I got about 150 spam trackbacks to 3 or 4 of my posts. And I’m even running version 1.9.6264.0! I did notice this post about an HttpModule that will block trackbacks based on regular expression patterns. I was curious if anyone else had used this or another method to effectively fight (or even prevent) trackback spam. Or maybe I’m just missing an updated blacklist for my configuration.

  • SlickRun news from the SlickRun forums!

    I was catching up on some older blog posts from different people recently and I came across some posts talking about how wonderful SlickRun is. Everyone is right, by the way, because SlickRun is amazing. It was probably the main program that moved me from being primarily a mouse user to a keyboard user. I still love how fast I can get around by taking my hand off the mouse and keeping them on the keyboard!

  • New Windows OneCare Beta! And it works in Vista!

    I’m a big fan on Windows OneCare. I installed the betas and was thoroughly impressed at it. I recently posted in frustration, though, that the current version wasn’t supported in Vista yet. Well, the 1.5 beta has now been released and it is supported under Vista. Here’s a screenshot of it on my machine:

  • Fun with ISOs and Vista RC2

    I recently updated my Vista installation to RC2 (build 5744), which went fairly smoothly for me. The installation went even better than for RC1, because I had moved my documents to my D: drive, so once I told Vista where they were, most of my initial configuration was done! I did have one weird problem with installation, but it disappeared when I booted from the DVD instead of attempting to install from within the previous install of Vista.

  • Why can't I move my public folders in Vista?

    I recently moved my documents from my C: drive over to my D: drive at home. My C: drive is a 10,000 RPM Raptor drive, which is insanely fast, but doesn’t provide as much disk space (still a completely worthwhile tradeoff IMHO). As a result, though, I don’t have room on my C: drive for a lot of other things like programs and games, which is why moving my documents to the D: drive is so nice. This is what it looks like in Vista:
