After trying Whatsapp on 2 devices
without success, i tried the same thing with telegram
. Telegram says about multiple devices:

Registering the mobile phone was straight forward: a SMS with a verification code and that's it.
Registering was easy: just another SMS
And after entering the code on the tablet i got the following message on my mobile phone:
After that every conversation or more precise: every unsecure conversation is broadcasted to (more...)

Why is this app used by everyone? What's cool about this app?

Last week i tried to create a system image with the built-in backup-tool from Windows 8. It sounds very easy:
- connect an usb storage to your computer
- start system image creation (look here)
But then i got this error: 0x80070001
After googling around i found the following solution:
Yesterday i did the update from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 via Windows App Store. Here some screenshots:

Last week i had the opportunity to use a Windows Surface RT
tablet. For several month i am using a windows 8 laptop, which is equipped with a touchscreen. So i am used to the new tiles interface and i knew at least on laptops, you have the desktop-applications and (more...)
In 2008 i wrote about using vmware images with virtualbox
. To migrate a host from virutalbox to Hyper-V, you have to do nearly the same, but you have to convert the hdd:
C:\Users\schroff>"\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage.exe" clonehd
"c:\Users\schroff\VirtualBox VMs\Debian64-DS\Debian64-DS. (more...)
After knowing, that running a linux inside Hyper-V is only working with the "legacy" network adapter (look here
), i was trying to build a kernel with the drivers (Microsoft has added the drivers into the Linux kernel versions >2.6.32).
There is one nice tutorial out there:
First try with a virtualization solution like Hyper-V is to install a guest. So let's try debian linux.
The installer runs through this points:
- Name & path of the virtual machine
- Network (how to configure a virtual switch with internet connectivity or how to configure internet connectivity with (more...)
In my last posting
i explained how to configure a vEthernet adapter to get connectivity to the internet. But there was one "problem": You had to provide one seperate IP for each virtual host, you want to connect to the internet.
But there is a solution (NAT) for this problem (more...)
First thing you have to do after enabling Hyper-V
is to set up your network for your virtual machines. This is not so easy, because some things do not work...
So let's start: Open the Virtual Switch Manager
There you have three options:
- external (connectivity to the internet)
- internal (connectivity (more...)
If you are running a Microsoft Windows 8 Professional, you can use Microsofts virtualization platform Hyper-V
. To get the management window you have to open
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Hyper-V Management Tools
and double click the icon:
If this icon (or the path) is not there, you have to enable Hyper-V:
