As promised here is the correction to the hybrid INF file you’ll need to make.

The hybrid has escaped!

If you have seen the mail announcing the release of the WDK RC1, I will remind you that the hybrid sample driver is there.  If you haven’t seen it (or don’t get the mails), hey you guys the WDK RC1 is released and you can get it through your connect.microsoft.com account. Then I will ask you…

Recursive Call Waiting.

Recursion and I do not get a long well.  There are a lot of little reasons, but it is mostly because Recursion is much older than me and because of that difference in ages, we don’t have much in common.  Like I hate referring to myself to answer a question I asked myself which I referred to myself…

You have to pass third before going home.

All forces occur in pairs, and these two forces are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction. This is Newton’s third law of motion. This is Patrick’s first law of programming. The thing I’ve been bitten with more than any in my “life” at, and before, Microsoft are bugs related to the releasing or freeing or generally UNDOing…

I have seen the light at the end of the tunnel!

A scant 7 days (and 8ish hours) from now I will hopefully be tripping the fiber light fantastic.  I’ve been dying to get my hands on FiOS for a long while.  More so after my wife had her business cable line installed at the house (she’s a virtual worker for an insurance company); a 26Mbps down, 5Mbps…

laps, lapse and lapped

I’m on a bit of a homonymic kick lately, if you haven’t been able to tell, but the blogpics (that’s a blog topic btw.  As I’m also on a Dr. Seuss kick lately, expect some more made up words) lend themselves to these sorts of things. A few posts ago I made mention of a problem that…

of queues, cues and q-s

Apparently Bungie released a game this week.  This caused something of a massive line to form around the company store on Tuesday.  And in a first for the physical company store, they opened the store at 7am to help handle the load.  That means they shot down my suggestion of catapulting copies to people as…

it’s full of stars….

First thing is first, NHL ’08 is miserable on Superstar mode.  You actually have to play hockey defense.  Not just jump up and slam somebody in to the boards.  And whatever you do, don’t make any mistakes passing in your defensive zone.  99.99999999% of them end up in the back of your net. Second thing…

That boy’s not right in the head

Holy jumpin’!  Some of you might be thinking, “Another blog post this month?” Yessir, I’ve got another one, and yes, it’s another rambler.  See I was pondering last night while watching The Universe: Beyond the Big Bang on my DVR and much like last week, I had something of an epiphany.  I started this blog with the intent…

I know what you’re thinking, "two posts in one day!?"

This one is more of a “ramble” though. I, like a lot of MSFTies, like to read and participate in computing forums across this world wide web thingamajig.  Recently in one of my forum haunts a question was posted, “How do I learn how to write drivers?”  It’s not the first time this question has…
