Filed under: microsoft,Self Help,Windows 7 — bigred @ 11:08 am

Did you happen to download the windows 7 upgrade from digitalriver.com.  This would be the $29.99 edition.

If you did get it, it downloads, then expands a TON of files.  If you want burn this to a DVD then you are going to need to do the following:

First download  oscdimg.zip.


THEN run this crazy command. 

This command will make an ISO for you.  Of course, replace the path with the correct path to the etfsboot.com and the directory where the files sit.

Oscdimg.exe –u2 –b”C:\Users\PUTUSERNAMEHERE\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com” –h “C:\Users\PUTUSERNAMEHERE\Desktop\expandedSetup” C:\WIN7.ISO

You know what really grinds my gears? Kate Gosselin’s claim she is broke…

You know what really grinds my gears?  Kate Gosselin is claiming that she is broke because ONE account has been drained by John.  Kate is FREAKING out….she’s putting on the water works and she is being a HORRIBLE actor.

TLC, NBC…please please stop reporting on this divorce.  Quit the show.  Quit paying Kate money to extort her children.  If you want the children to grow up like normal kids, sell your multi million dollar house and turn off the cameras.

In divorce the “man is always wrong”.  I’m not sure why this happens, but for sure all we are seeing is one side of the story, because every time I hear Kate say “I can’t pay my bills”, I want to punch her in the nose.


New computer speeds

I’ll have to run some official benchmarks, but I’m pretty happy with the new speeds of my computer.  I ended up getting a new computer because I find myself creating LARGE photos.  I work with creating posters with multiple layers.  Tonight I opened up a 900mb file.  It took about 10-15 seconds.  This used to take about 3 minutes or more to open and eat all my ram and eat some scratch disk.  I’ve attached an image just to show the memory usage.  All 8 cores look nice and low.  The 8 gigs of ram I’m sure helps, not to mention that Photoshop likes to use the GPU which has 1gb of ram on that too.

Anyways I’ll share more specs when I get time to run some benchmarks.
