The restore is performed from the Vista installation DVD option - Restore Complete PC.
Nice option for preparation of the system for Linux installation. :)

Visual Studio 2008 has an option to display all the exceptions being thrown and/or not caught by user code. The Exceptions dialog is available by pressing Ctrl+Alt+E.
This is handy if you’re working on other people’s code that has many try/catch blocks with an empty catch part. Effectively, this jumps over the exception, ignoring it, but can lead to stack overflow blowup in certain occasions.
After upgrading the Firefox 3.5 to 3.5.1 I have quite a significant subjective feeling of speed. I have to add, this is *with* Fasterfox Lite extension. But, still, the speed of page loading and display, and the overall responsiveness of the application is great. On par, if not better (requires a bit more comparisons) than Chrome 3. Good work, Firefox team!
Here is the project to run Linux on HTC Magician (Qtek S100) – link. The status of the project as of 2007-04-03 is B-. This means most features can be utilized, but not all and not fully.
The drivers from this project might be used to help running Android on Magician.
Comparing today’s two most widely used approaches in software development from Microsoft’s and IBM’s point of view.
General conclusion of the comparisons could be summarized as:
RUP is (1) a formal, strict and heavy software engineering process that wants to (2) identify the requirements and architecture early in the process to be able to (3) focus on planning the time schedules and budget to create (4) a predictive and ordered software development environment.
MSF4ASD is (1) an informal, loosely, and light software engineering process that (2) embraces ad hoc requirements management and architecture design to (3) facilitate the ability to cope with changes to create (4) an adaptive and responsive environment.

This is an agile HTML parser that builds a read/write DOM and supports plain XPATH or XSLT (you actually don't HAVE to understand XPATH nor XSLT to use it, don't worry...). It is a .NET code library that allows you to parse "out of the web" HTML files. The parser is very tolerant with "real world" malformed HTML. The object model is very similar to what proposes System.Xml, but for HTML documents (or streams).
