wenn man einen blue screen hat möchte man natürlich gerne den grund wissen, um das problem lösen zu können; besondere bedeutung hat dabei die achtstelligen hexadezimalen nummer – z.b. 0x000000C9 – gefolgt von einem kurzen text, in diesem fall “DRIVER_VERIFIER_IOMANAGER_VIOLATION”. lösungen bzw links zu lösungen gibt es auf aumha.org; darf in keiner linksammlung fehlen!

mich nervt die werbung rechts oben im adobe reader vor allem dann, wenn meine internet verbindung gerade mal langsam ist – denn dann reagiert der reader beim öffnen eine zeit lang gar nicht mehr, weil er die dumme werbung nachladen möchte:

adobe reader werbung

das muss nicht sein: unter hklm\software\adobe\acrobat reader\7.0[oder 6.0]\FeatureLockDown “bShowAdsAllow” als dword mit dem wert 0 anlegen und schon ist ruhe

unter unix ist es nichts besonderes, verzeichnisse oder dateien zu “verlinken”, d.h. irgendwo anders auf dem system als – nennen wir es – virtuellen folder oder file zur verfügung zu stellen. anders als bei stinknormalen shortcuts sind diese folder und files dann von allen applikationen transparent zu verwenden.

mit boardmitteln von windows selbst kann man nur eine ganze platte auf irgendeinem anderen ntfs volume unter einem verzeichnis mounten – aber nur nur einen folder oder gar nur ein einzelnes file nicht… obwohl das ntfs ab version 5 durchaus unterstützen würde.

daher braucht man dazu zwei tools:

Junction Link Magic: mit diesem tool kann man einfach über eine gui links von z.b. c:\folder1 auf d:\folder2 setzen; d.h. z.b. im explorer sieht man dann unter d:\folder2 exakt das, was in c:\folder1 enthalten ist

NTFS Hardlink ShellExtension: dieses tool bietet eine sehr schöne integration in den explorer; man kann damit gleiches wie mit obigen tool anstellen, nur eben nicht auf folder, sondern auf file-basis

Many people don’t know that Microsoft provides an Installable File System (IFS) SDK kit for writing filesystem drivers. This SDK provides necessary info for writing a filesystem driver to manage Linux/OS X drives from Windows 2000, XP or 2003 Server. Stephan Schreiber wrote an Ext2 IFS driver for Windows which supports Ext2 and Ext3 with read/write operations and almost everything else available under Linux except access rights, defraging and some other minor things.
