Running the Always On Top app on server 2008

There is this great little app called Always On Top that does exactly what it says, basically you can run or designate a "window" on top of all other windows using the command Ctr-Alt-T

Apart from that it just sits in the background doing nothing....... (lol probably a CIA monitoring app....I hope its doing nothing but these days who knows).

Anyway like I said I love it and its one of the first apps I install when setting up a new pc.

Long story short I found in Server 2008 it stopped working, it would run no problems eg in the ProgramFiles (X86) folder but hitting Ctr-Alt-T didn't cause windows to stay on top.

The solution and although obvious I'm posting it here for SEO reasons in case anyone else gets caught out is to simply right mouse click the exe file then click on Compatibility tab then  check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for - Windows Server 2003" check box and hit apply.

The restart the app......sweet all good again :)

Inflations a bitch

Stole this from a post

Modern economics does not have a monetary policy.
Modern economics has a counterfeiting policy.
Counterfeit enables thieves to not have to produce anything because they steal from those who do.

Awesomely simple and accurate.

Light/Matter conversion

I wonder how much faster we could do this research if we got rid of all religion and wars and stopped blowing the shit out of each other at 2-4% of our total GDP

I guess there is always hope that humans will actually evolve.....but probably not in my lifetime.

When you look at how much potential there is in the light/matter conversion (unlimited energy for one) it makes you realize we aren't much more evolved than stick wielding cavemen.
