Google Desktop, not for me again!

Google Desktop Blog wrote about their new side bar, so I wondered what new features and improvement had been added since their first launch. I've installed once when it launched and didn't like it. Today I revisited their website again and found interesting features like transparent sidebar, gadgets and plug-ins, etc.. So I installed it again to see how cool it is. After I installed, I set the sidebar to auto hide and I like it. It works like windows auto hide taskbar feature. I removed default gadgets that I don't want such as news(my home page is, gtalk(I always have my gmail open in one browser window that has gtalk), etc.. and I ended up having local weather on my google desktop sidebar(even though I already have FireFox plug-in for local weather). I was browsing other gadgets and installed a gadget that display system informations. Bah.. It shows I only have 94MB free memory on my system. So I check my memory usage and found out that google desktop is using about 67MB of system memory and staying at the top when you index running processes by memory usage(high to low). I've only two gadgets installed in my sidebar at that time. Google desktop visited for 15 minutes on my system second time. I've 512MB system memory on my system and it had been sufficient for all other applications that I use everyday. Sadly I let it go second time because of a big chunk of memory usage. Those of you who has 1GB of system memory may want to install and enjoy those cool gadgets but not me..

Firefox 2.0 is now officially released!

Firefox 2.0 is now officially released and can be download at Mozilla Firefox page. Check out the release note here
One thing I noticed from this version is Mozilla had set the the minimum width for each tab and this is because of the tab close button on each tab and readability of the tab title. So when I open more than 12 tabs(number of tabs may varies according to the monitor's screen resolution), there are two horizontal scroll button came up(next to very left and right of the tabs to view those tabs that couldn't fit under the Firefox window. I used to open more than 12 tabs in one Firefox window and I don't like that horizontal scroll bar to view the hidden tabs. I've hunt down under about:config and I was able to edit the minimum tab width to 50(default is 100). I edited that minimum tab width because I don't really care about the close button (I use All-in_One Gesture to close the tab)and readability of the tab title. Here is how if you want to edit the tab minimum width, here is what I did.
- Type about:config in your Firefox browser
- Filter with browser.tabs.tabMinWidth
- Double click on it and set your desire value(default is 100 and I set it to 50)
- Done!

How hard drive works inside

This video shows how hard drive works while you are doing something on your computer. Watch this video and read the following paragraph from Wikipedia and imagine if you shake/bang your laptop or desktop while operating(while disk is spinning at at the speed of 5400 r.p.m or 7200 r.p.m or more.)

"Hard drives have a mostly sealed enclosure that protects the drive internals from dust, condensation, and other sources of contamination. The hard disk's read-write heads fly on an air bearing which is a cushion of air only nanometers above the disk surface. The disk surface and the drive's internal environment must therefore be kept immaculate to prevent damage from fingerprints, hair, dust, smoke particles and such, given the sub-microscopic gap between the heads and disk." source: Wikipedia
