Microsoft® SilverLight

Friday, February 15th, 2008

I just ran into a site that required Microsoft® Silverlight, but I cannot install it:

Microsoft Silverlight

thought it provides “Compelling Cross-Platform User Experiences”

Microsoft Silverlight

Apparently “cross-platform” is a rather restricted concept at Microsoft, meaning “works somewhat on a Mac too”

Suspend doesn’t know its working

Wednesday, February 6th, 2008

Often, when I have suspended by Zepto Znote 3215W, I get a little message at resume that suspend failed, which is weird as the laptop has just been suspended and successfully resumed.

Suspend failed message

It started with Linux 2.6.24.

Kernel 2.6.24 also seems to have broken some ACPI modules, as this now happens:

# acpi -V
No support for device type: battery
No support for device type: thermal
No support for device type: ac_adapter

I used to only get the error for “thermal” with kernel 2.6.23.
