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!

A Cello Rendo by Ethan Winer

This is an amazing video of Ethan Winer playing 37 separate cello parts to create one song. He even plays the percussion parts on his ... all » cello. It was recorded on 23 tracks using 37 plug-in effects. He spent hundreds of hours on this project so its worth a listen.

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
