Vista SP2 Build 16489 for x64

You may have already seen that Microsoft have released there first beta of Windows Vista SP2, as it was reported on several sites yesterday, one of my favorities is Rafael’s Within Windows blog. So you’ve probably already heard that there’s nothing much in there and it’s just a collection of previous fixes, albeit about a 290MB collection. Well standback and prepare to be flabagasted, because on x64 Vista Ultimate, that colection grows to about 490MB, it must be all those 64bit pointers đŸ™‚

A little bit of nostalgia

What did the web look like 10 years ago to you? Well I was in my final year at university and was developing a new website for the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. This was my first attempt at doing anything HTML related (along with a few other technologies of the time such as server side includes and CGI-BIN). It was very basic by today’s standards. Anyway I was randomly browsing the web earlier and actually came across some of my original pages still being served up by the web server’s at NTU, complete with the original comments embedded within the HTML source đŸ™‚

So this is what the web looked like for me 10 years ago.
