Multiple Windows Installs on One Drive

If only you could control names of directories, where Microsoft installs Windows, Data and Program Files. If you could, you  would be able to  install multiple instances of operating system on the same drive.  So. let’s do it anyway.  To do that you need two parallel installs of you favorite operating system on the same computer.  For now it has to be on 2 different drives.   You need this so you can manipulate locked files and directories of one install, while booting into the other one. Disclaimer This article applies to any Microsoft operating system, and uses the most complicated Windows 7 64-bit as an example.  This method was also tested…

The Fuhrer of Russian Revolution

Like everything else except eternity, this story has a beginning. On a hot summer morning on August 31, 2010 at 7:45 EST in a comfort of fresh air-conditioned air, I am beginning this story, this vacation journal that shows how far Europe and America have moved apart during last 200-300 years. Have they ever been similar? This was our sixth trip to Europe in 11 years. On August 14, 2010 we landed in Zurich. Zurich is located in German-speaking zone of Switzerland.  Switzerland did not join the Euro zone and the currency here is Swiss Franks (CHF).  Our plan was to spend a couple of days here and then venture into a circular…

Resolved: The system cannot find message text for message …

What a pleasure to resolve a long standing problem.   And not by an accident.   No.  But by applying a heavy-duty problem-solving pressure tactic.  This is gold, Jerry, gold!  Can I use it? At some point you are so fed up with a problem, you are ready to tackle almost anything. Ever since Vista and Windows 2008 Server, if you rename cmd.exe for security reasons, you wouldn’t be able to see any messages in a Command Prompt, and what is even worse, you wouldn’t see any error messages. Instead all you see is something like this: The system cannot find message text for message number 0x2350 in the message file for Application.…

a world without the West

I started this short article to summarize Globalist ideology and why Trump is such a blow for them.  In the matter of a few hours article grew to cover these topics in no particular order: — Why Globalism is actually Westernism — What is Internationalists ideology — Why Globalists failed in 2016 — Trump actions to reverse Western Globalism   When you desire to read on ideology of Obama years, read this serious, earnest, but biased site – German Marshall Fund (GMF). Search the site for word “Internationalist”. Take a moment to examine what they plan to turn America into. Please do not miss this very frank article explaining Obama policy.…

Why so many people annoyed with Trump?

Trump Qualifications for President

  I really would like to hear a reasonable answer.  People appear so annoyed that it is necessary to write serious articles, explaining that reasonable people can support Trump.  For example, article in Chicago Tribune: “Yes, decent people can support Donald Trump“.  Sadly, this is not a joke.  And I do not remember from previous elections, that one side ever had to explain why they voted the way they did, and the other side is so incredulous in accepting the argumentation. Unfortunately, in post-election verbal clashes people losing the key points of Trump candidacy: (1) He is not a politician. This is his strongest quality – he is not one of…

Power-Up

Idea – Reduce Noise, Save on Electricity My electric company installed an electricity consumption gadget, and ability to monitor usage online. A few month into the experiment I realized, that I can easily reduce electric usage, if I turned off my server. It is been over a year since I migrated all my sites to Amazon cloud, so now my server only needs to be on, when I need it on. All the nights and 90% of all work hours it can be off.  But how to do that? I recall seeing something in BIOSes of Intel motherboards called Wake-On-LAN.  First time I saw something like this was in May of…

The Most Important Thing

Water-Tank

I am starting to write this, and I do not know the answer to the question. I will use writing as a method to concentrate on thinking, to remove all other distractions and move forward. This question of a supreme priority could only be important for people, who have time to think and prioritize. So, what is the most important thing? It is definitely not work.  You are easily replaceable at work, even if you fly very high. It is very unlikely to be a family, because having family doesn’t make you unique. The remaining realm of possible answers brings you to what you do or what you think. Important Doings…
