1213: Combination Vision Test – explain xkcd

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/05/17

LOL, I didn’t know about “XKCD Explained”, but since I didn’t know about synesthesia, I found 1213: Combination Vision Test – explain xkcd.

Now I wonder how they created the colorized picture in an efficient manner (:

Probably would have been just as fast to dim the 0, 4, 6, and 8 digits.

A Consuming Experience: Windows – no disk Exception Processing Message c0000013 Parameters 75b6bf9c 4 75b6bf9c 75b6bf9c – fixed!

Sometimes I get messages like the below No Disk error on virtual machines, mainly in Windows XP and lower, but sometimes in more recent Windows versions too.

Windows - No Disk

Exception Processing Message c0000013 Parameters 75b6bf7c 4 75b6bf7c 75b6bf7c

The 0xc0000013 is a No Disk Exception.

Every time the solution has been to uninstall the floppy drive device from the VM image.

I never had it on physical hardware, but for that, disabling all unused removable and USB disk devices seem to work.

Somehow, lots of software thinks it should scan ALL media, even the removable ones that might not have media inserted.
