Roadtrip to Amsterdam

Categories: Fun, Home

On sunday evening I returned from a great bachelor’s weekend in Amsterdam, organized by my friends Ash, Danny, Jack/Kristof and Steven [alphabetical order]. Had a great time, hanging out, lasershooting , movie’ing , coupling’ing , eating, walking, drinking (coke), comedy’ing and much more…

Thanks again, guys – it was great.

So, we’ll need to do that again – who’s next? 🙂

Make shift turn off caps lock on Windows XP

I reinstalled my WinXP last weekend, and have been annoyed by this the entire week already. My last install just did it like that, too. Anyway, how to fix:

  • Open regedit
  • Find HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Keyboard Layout
  • Create DWORD called Attributes and set the hexadecimal value to 00010000
  • Reboot

Enjoy!

After the Apostrophe Protection Society , we now have the Spatiegebruik website. Please stop the "spatie ziekte" ! The examples are ‘funny’. If you’re into that sort of thing. 🙂

Removing Oracle on Windows when the Installer gives up
Date: June 6th, 2007 by SiD3WiNDR
Categories: Oracle, Software

Below services post was needed for the following:

I had a machine with Oracle 9 installed, and wanted to uninstall it. The uninstlaler installed on disk however told me that I needed a newer installer to remove the software (old installer used for base, then newer installer on CD used for patches/upgrades, and the new installer not installed on the harddisk). So this is what I learned from a colleague who used to work at Oracle:

  • Stop all oracle services
  • Remove all oracle services
  • Delete c:\oracle
  • Delete c:\documents and settings\all users\start menu\oracle*
  • Delete c:\program files\oracle
  • Start regedit and delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Oracle

Done!

Apparently at Oracle the same method is used quite often. 🙂

Removing services in Windows XP

Open up a command prompt and typing sc delete <servicename> will remove a service. (and sc create will create one)

One has to wonder why you can’t do that through Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services though… 🙂
