Sarcasm followed by sarcasm! I <3 it.

Note: That was more sarcasm.

THANK FUCK.

Was trying to install a nice pretty dark theme for windows 7 that requires replacing some dll's in windows to allow for much more customisation with windows themes to do so.

So i did that, then tried to restart computer, and get loads of errors in LoginUI.exe about a procedure entry point not being found in KernelBase.dll which has to be clicked like a million times to continue, and of course after manually rebooting i cannot get into windows, EVEN in safe mode.

Thankfully runing safe mode to command prompt worked (After clicking okay on that error about 1 hundred times) and i managed to change the dll's back through command prompt! and all is well now

If i hadn't been able to do that i'd've needed to reformat windows 7 and then request a new serial from uni since i got it through MSDNAA

Turns out i was using a patch for a previous release build of windows 7, which funnily, is the only one i can find on any google search, i had to get into the parent directory of the download to find ones for the most recent builds of window 7, how gay.

time to try again! (and hope that if it doesn't work again, i can still get into command prompt!)

I'm thinking about getting windows 7 for my macbook pro as opposed to vista and xp. I hear things are good for windows 7 but I'm dreading any slowdowns for my already lightspeed startup times...

on a side note

Browser compatibility

Sucks dick , ive spent a while now optomising my site to load faster by doing things (gradients,round eges , drop shadows etc) dynamically so the page content itself loads faster(like youd use the drawing API to cut a flashes filesize down) and then what do i find ? its pretty much fucked up in any other browser than chrome or safari . i feel so pissed.

Windows 7 is great for me so far. Skip vista, XP is all good still too though.

Woah woah. Windows 7 is a good product?

All I've heard is bad news about it.

I have vista right now, and lemme tell you, it's starts crashing when I open wordpad.
My PC stats are fine, I guess my OS is not.

Vista has always ran fine for me. I have 7 at work and i run into memory issues with photoshop when i have complex psd's, yet i've never had that issue at home, and my pc at home is shittier than the one at the office.

I have vista on my pc laptop but I'm trying to get everything onto my mac so I don't need the pc. I'll probably upgrade to 7 though just incase. I think I'm going to have this mac for awhile...

To be honest I disabled Aero and only installed the basic drivers and I now have a really lush, lightning fast version of Vista which runs hardly anything in the background.

The AS3 UI Components are terrible. You have to find loopholes in the methods of the components in order to get them to work properly.

they used to be terrible in AS2. Now they are pretty good actually.

I'd never use them in a real project cause it's a pain to skin them, but for tech demos and stuff they're great

Should look into a "port" of java's swing framework, ASWing. It seems kind of difficult to pick up at first but if you've had any experience with swing it's very similar (obviously) and not much more difficult to pick up raw.

Only downside is that the library is fucking huuuuuge and takes like 8 seconds to compile which is really annoying.

I always end up creating my own, too, for the same reason. It'd be nice to have some more functional default components for simple demos, though. It's a pain having to remake a component for something you're not even sure will work or will be useful.

The most annoying component is the DataGrid, which would be quite useful if it worked properly.
