Dear Valentine's Massacre!

Well, not quite. More a 'pfft' to all you loved up teenagers! And others in a spot of bother! Hope all's well...

John have you tried using virtualbox instead? Whay OS are you using for the guest?


Dear Blog,

I'm using Vista Ultimate as the host OS, I haven't tried Virtualbox at all - have you much experience with it?

John


Dear John,

Yeah I have used it loads and like it. I have always found that it works really well as long as you have a decent amount of RAM (as with any virtualization).
When I was at college I had the M1330 installed with Ubuntu and had Vista as the guest OS in seamless mode. Never had any problems with it.

Dear Blog,

I'll have a look at Virtualbox, the machine is a C2S 2.1Ghz with 3GB ram - I don't know if it's too much expecting it to handle both operating systems when Vista is making heavy use of the hardware.

Dear Blog,

Ah, that old trick. Grump if you don't, but yey if you do! Got to get at least something...

Hmmm, autoplay doesn't seem to be working at all for me. Not too much of a biggie I suppose.

Dear blog,
I'm hoping the potential moving in together t'up north will distract her this year.

CV almost done, I hate writing self appraisals, it is always easier to talk things through... so much crap to fit in two pages.
