On this page, you can enjoy a gorgeous virtual round trip of London. Many great sightseeing points can be viewed with a unprecidented level of detail – all in one photo. There are certain “landmark points”, as well as a virtual tour.
The panoramic view was stiched together from 8000 photos and is 400.000 x 200.000 pixels in sizes. Try that with your usual digital camera!
A personal tip: also try to look down, more or less where you stand and you can see Londoners in their daily life:
It is quite easy to install one of the more modern Windows variants using a USB stick. You simply have to execute the following steps, using a USB stick of 4 GB or more.
1. Make the stick bootable
from a DOS prompt execute: diskpart list disk select disk 1 (assuming disk 1 was your thumb drive in the above list disk command) clean create partition primary select partition 1 active format fs=fat32 assign exit
Now the stick is bootable.
2. Windows files
Copy the contents of your Windows image or DVD to the base level of the stick.
Make sure that in your BIOS boot options, you have selected USB as primary boot option.
You will notice a significant boost in installation speed!! 🙂
A truly amazing video from 1977 (who would believe it?) about mind-blowing dimensions of the macro- and micro-cosmos. Gorgeous as it is, it makes you feel insignificantly small and huuuuuge at the same time. And in the end, you are left alone with the question what it is that keeps the world together.
