Celebrating the greatness! A collection of Executor posts!!

 Hey you guys. This post is dedicated to my favorite software of all time!

This post is a collection of posts varying from the early days of this blog, with some new things too. So read on, maybe you catch the bug ;)
What is executor?




"This is a multi-purpose launcher and a more advanced and customizable version of windows run. The program originated as I was sick of spending too much time searching for programs through my ever growing windows start-menu, and also I missed a tool that could ease and optimize my daily work flow. There was of course already programs like this available, but each had it's annoyance or missing features or too(!) geeky." Official website




I have to admit. I love executor so much! I think it's the best ever!!
It made my life a lot easier!
I even go to the forms to dwell on the latest improvements and bug fixes. I think I'm in love <3
and there I learned that no Linux version will ever be issued! That broke my heart and lead a frantic search for an alternative. I summed it up here for you to read!
Thanks to it I can have an empty desktop and access my programs and important files easily. Even combine 3 or more command together to launch them together!!
You name it: Websites, drives, documents. As long it's indexed it's there and you will get it fast! Even faster if you add the Everything search utility!
It's never boring. It always has a new exciting side to it! The skins can be changed to many looks. Enjoy the many skins you can apply to your launcher.

There are some bugs too. You might wanna disable this option "Index and chancing >Auto index". It has caused my whole computer to crash a couple of times :'( . Nothing is perfect sadly


Always make sure to backup your keywords! They are your toolkit to dominate over your computer!
Go to settings > Keywords > right click any word > Select Export Keywords.



I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did writing it. And I hope it gets you to download it ;)

Acer Aspier A5 11 inch Windows 8 boot problem + fix so far

Hey you guys

You probably checked out the slick notebook by Acer. Acer Aspier A5 11 inch. It comes with neat features compared to price. Most notably a touch screen and Windows 8 OEM, sadly it has a fatal bug!!

 




As I searched the web ( including the Acer help ) I noticed a lot of people talking about it online and no one has a clear answer .. :(
What happens is: After a short while the computer refuses booting!!
No matter what you do, It won't boot!
Since it doesn't have a DVD-ROM there isn't a way for you to insert the disk to restore Windows !
Even if you were slick enough to use a USB drive. It's hopeless..
Any and all settings lead to nothing at all ..
So I was fiddling with it. Being an open source fanatic I decided to give my Linux live USB a go. I wasn't able to boot as well!!
My fix was really simple, all you need us the windows USB and the Ubuntu USB. I'll make a post on how to make bootable media next year ;) notice the  date ;)
**Update the tutorial for windows can be found here 
**Update 2 the tutorial for Linux can be found Here
1. Insert the Windows USB installer.
2. Go to advanced options and then to command prompt.
3. Insert the following command to disable hibernate ( I'll tell you why in a minute ) powercfg /h off then shutdown /s /t 0
4. After rebooting go to bios and change boot type from UEFI to Legacy. Save the changes and restart.
5. Make sure the Ubuntu flash is connected, boot from it.
6. Select try Ubuntu and in a minute you will get the desktop. Click the hard drives to gain access to your media and recover it.
7. The commands you entered from step two is to access the drive under Ubuntu, or else you will receive an error message saying you can't access the drives. Because windows 8 doesn't really shutdown, it hibernates to save boot time.

Also note that the BIOS moves very fast so make sure you press really fast too :D and if it doesn't work check the boot order from the f2 menu putting USB as the default boot device ..

This is how to recover the media. And frankly this is what I was asked to do on the Acer Aspire A5 11 inch. I hope it helps. And if I make any changes I'll post a new post referencing this one :)

*Update!! Problem fixed!
Check this link for full details :D
