By the way, your website at http://hwdb.mipt.cc/Main_Page is down. I can't see it, it just doesn't load.

Indeed. Unfortunately I don't manage the server, but I plan to move the contents to a different server.

You can host files on http://www.archive.org

>> I opened my account a year ago and I've uploaded around 50 Gigabytes (I want to upload my whole 5-Terabyte drive). <<

It's public domain, free; it gets automatically distributed as a torrent.

It can also can be seen from the web as a regular Geocities website, but with unlimited space (it seems that it's better and easier to upload files smaller than 2GB).

It's like Archive.org and other helpers like ArchiveTeam did it to compensate what happened to Geocities.

Thanks! Unfortunately, I don't know how to edit the Wiki (using tags, etc). It tooks me a while just to add my OS to the Projects list.
Is there a manual/guide?
I can transfer this to the Wiki and help you if you want me to/did not do so yet. Just tell me.

No, thanks. I will probably add a link to this topic on the Wiki or learn how to write a Wiki page when I'm less lazy. :mrgreen:

It's been a few months since this was posted; max offered to copy it over to the wiki, but you said you'd get around to it. Is it safe to assume now that it's not going to happen, and we can take max up on his offer?

This is one of the more helpful VESA write ups and it'd be great to have it on the wiki.

VESA Tutorial
Hello. Today, I'm posting specifically to teach people who want graphics all about VESA. That means that in less than 30 minutes, you'll be able to have a high-color graphics world in your OS!


Less than 30 minutes. :D

Thanks for the tutorial Omar!

Is there any tutorial on the UEFI GOP you talked about?

I don't know much about UEFI in general, TBH. You can Google around for UEFI docs; they shouldn't be hard to find.
BTW, this tutorial is on the Wiki.
