Results – Least Favorite Guru Contest

Some examples:
1. Michelle. Or the one with the gun. Which is probably all of them.
2. Uh VIC hands down
3. Nic
4. Least favorite is Nic Ballious!
5. Definitely Vic. No more cownsoles. Sent from my iPhone
6. Definitely Vic Webb.  Nobody cares about his zero inbox, his retweets of the most obvious tech stories, windows phone or anything else that he rambles on about. Thanks, “The lets keep this anonymous Guru”
7. It’s a hard call between Nic and Vic, but I’m gonna have to say Vic just for the simple fact that for the longest time he would never shut up about windows.

Dear Simulcast(ers?)

Been away for a while, but back now to torment you with long winded mails again. Recently bought an Asus u38n laptop and a Samsung ssd and thought I’d let the recovery function reinstall win8 to the ssd while mounted through a USB case, but here’s the problem:

There’s no option to reinstall…Only reset, as if it is some kind of cell phone. And no optical disks either. It’s been almost two years now since I last owned a pc, so I’m out of practice. Is it possible to copy the original drive on to the ssd? How, and through which program? And will i get everything copied so the system sees no difference from the old disk?

Still a faithful listener of your show, so keep up the good work and I hope you can help me here.

Kind regards, Arne, somewhere in the Mediterranean

Ps. The e in my name is pronounced the same way as in “the”. Just think “the long winded one”…
