Ranging from AmigaOS to windows (AmigaOS looks a lot better than early versions of windows btw)
How to have other respect your authority. Some great tips.
Site putting mug shots of thugs online trying to catch some of them by making their image public
Great gadget in these digital times
Hmm, there's some truth in there. Delightful little essay.
At least you can create some damn creepy ones with this tech
Knowing your statistics is important though, as otherwise they only turn into the superlative of Damn Lies
Interesting software; I've been thinking about integrating mail, calendaring, contacts, files, todo etc. for a long while, and finally some decent solutions are starting to pop up.
Hmmmm, that's not good I guess
So far for terrorising your own people for nothing. Kudos.
I already use the really usable Google Reader (which is nicer to read comics in anyway), but this irssi script looks quite usable!
With surprising results
Whoa; I guess that's not demolition-proof though ;)
I don't get the `friend'-inflation people practice on such sites, but it's of course an interesting phenomenon expanding your network of acquaintances that way. The whole Hyves site is awefully engineered though :)
Ah, I already wondered how it was possible I only got 87 spam emails yesterday instead of the regular 400-500.
There are some really nice pics in there; also fun to see how those pics are made, like in this one.
Kay's vision, which he dubbed the "Dynabook," was for a 2-pound, 1-Mpixel color computing device.
"...the Dynabook was never built. But it greatly inspired the devices we now call laptops, although it's taken four decades to slim the tech down to the point where usable computers actually weigh as little as two pounds. To honor his achievements, Mountain View's Computer History Museum on Wednesday will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the legendary Dynabook. [Quoting Kay:] 'The Amazon Kindle is kind of a subset of a Dynabook — too much of a subset. The screen is too small, it is not very capable of dynamics, the keyboard is poor, etc. But it does have several limited service ideas that are good. The next version of a Kindle could be really exciting.'"
There are some interesting thoughts on interfaces in the article. Current devices and applications like web browsers could be improved a lot in terms of integration and workflow.
For future reference. It's damn handy.
Fullscreen fbreader in portrait mode with black background and white font works great for me; just the reading interface, music might be played completely in te background and the +/- buttons are perfectly placed for page up/down. Automatic scrolling is an option too of course, but I don't like that much.
For future reference
Hm, interesting. Of course it's dependent of your tastes, but some whisky's shouldn't be watered obviously.
BBC article on how people nowadays show off their (expensive) underwear in daily life. This isn't sign of an indecent era, but of a show-off of luxury, which similarly happened in the 16th century. Interesting read.
And/or files only. Simple solution. For future reference
