Asus O!Play HD2 player is a TECHNOLOGICAL DISASTER.

Are you getting upset of Skype underlining links in your browser or e-mail client? There is an easy way to get rid of them. But keep in mind that you're probably will have to repeat this procedure after each update to this idiotic piece of software.

Bare in mind that I am not talking about integration with callto: protocol.

To disable this feature you can find a corresponding option in Advanced Options tab in Skype configuration. You can disable this feature and nothing will change -- links will be underlined anyway.

Windows treats ZIP files like folders, you say, right?

If you still believe in such bullshit then try to:

  • open some ZIP file,
  • select some or all files,
  • press Ctrl+X to cut them,
  • navigate to some destination folder and
  • press Ctrl+V to paste copied files.

This simple operation can take hours on Windows!
