Google Fiber is heading close to home for its next location: San Francisco. Google announced this morning that it intends to bring its fast gigabit internet to “a portion of San Francisco,” specifically to apartments, condos, and affordable housing units. Details on exactly where and when are nonexistent for now, and Google suggests that we may be waiting a while to hear more.
“BSOD”, stands for “Blue Screen Of Death”.
And yes, most likely you have encountered the dreaded BSOD, provided you are running a computer.
But wait, you never found out what caused that BSOD. Chance’s are you still can.
If you haven’t ran any cleaning program’s like CCleaner, that mini dump file still exsist on your computer. You can veiw that mini dump file and determine what caused your computer to crash.
After your system has recovered and you are now logged onto your Windows “OS”, just run BlueScreenVeiw. – BlueScreenView v1.55 – Copyright (c) 2009 – 2015 Nir Sofer –
“BlueScreenView scans all your minidump files created during ‘blue screen of death’ crashes, and displays the information about all crashes in one table. For each crash, BlueScreenView displays the minidump filename, the date/time of the crash, the basic crash information displayed in the blue screen (Bug Check Code and 4 parameters), and the details of the driver or module that possibly caused the crash (filename, product name, file description, and file version). For each crash displayed in the upper pane, you can view the details of the device drivers loaded during the crash in the lower pane. BlueScreenView also mark the drivers that their addresses found in the crash stack, so you can easily locate the suspected drivers that possibly caused the crash.”
It may be best to run BlueScreenView while in “Safe Mode”, that way you can treat the cause of that BSOD from there without any restrictions, such as uninstalling the culprit that isn’t running in safe mode.
Only a certain amount of Windows drivers run in safe mode, and most likely they aren’t the reason for the BSOD. Perhaps you installed a thrid party program that had injected its own drivers -into the “OS”- for it to run properly. But, the driver wasn’t compatible for your system, hence a BSOD.
Anyway, this handy little tool will help you fix the problem. Hasn’t failed me yet, as long as the mini dump file is still in my system, I can take care of the problem with a success rate of 100%.
Automatically scans your current minidump folder and displays the list of all crash dumps, including crash dump date/time and crash details. Allows you to view a blue screen which is very similar to the one that Windows displayed during the crash. BlueScreenView enumerates the memory addresses inside the stack of the crash, and find all drivers/modules that might be involved in the crash.
BlueScreenView also allows you to work with another instance of Windows, simply by choosing the right minidump folder (In Advanced Options). BlueScreenView automatically locate the drivers appeared in the crash dump, and extract their version resource information, including product name, file version, company, and file description.
BlueScreenView works with Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, as long as Windows is configured to save minidump files during BSOD crashes. If your system doesn’t create MiniDump files on a blue screen crash, try to configure it according to the following article: How to configure Windows to create MiniDump files on BSOD BlueScreenView can read the MiniDump files of both 32-bit and x64 systems.Be aware that on Windows 10, some of the created MiniDump files might be empty and BlueScreenView will not display them. BlueScreenView doesn’t require any installation process or additional dll files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file – BlueScreenView.exe After running BlueScreenView, it automatically scans your MiniDump folder and display all crash details in the upper pane.
Mathematical equations can make Internet communication via computer, mobile phone or satellite many times faster and more secure than today. A new study uses a four minute long mobile video as an example. The method used by the Danish and US researchers in the study resulted in the video being downloaded five times faster than state of the art technology. The video also streamed without interruptions. In comparison, the original video got stuck 13 times along the way.
“This has the potential to change the entire market. In experiments with our network coding of Internet traffic, equipment manufacturers experienced speeds that are five to ten times faster than usual.”

Two Democrats made a proposal Tuesday that would require the Federal Communications Commission to ban paid prioritization, a term used to describe potential deals between internet service providers and large content producers to pay for preferential access to network channels.
“Americans are speaking loud and clear, They want an Internet that is a platform for free expression and innovation, where the best ideas and services can reach consumers based on merit rather than based on a financial relationship with a broadband provider.”
The potential downside to this is everyone else who doesn’t pay the premium may have a bugged-down or unreliable service in favor of ISPs focusing on the premium users. This in turn could hurt rival companies who don’t pay the premiums from staying competitive.
The giants of the technology industry such as Google, Facebook, Amazon, among others pour all their efforts to lobby for the protection of the open Internet.
