I like Opera. I really do. I haven’t found anything better for reading feeds which means it’s open on my desktop almost all the time. Or at least it was until I switched from Windows XP to Suse 10.2. Because I’ve been busy with school and life it’s taken me awhile to copy over my […]

Another idea for dealing with the .docx files that Does Not Work! It’s still bothering me that a user cannot simply and easily open these files and work with them. I had another idea: Gmail now includes the option to open some files as Google documents — would this work with the dread .docx? I […]

There’s unrest about the latest development over at Flickr. As of March 15th 2007, old skool members will be required to retire their old flickr logins and use a yahoo id to access their accounts.

Some call it a time-waster. I think it’s fun. Retrievr made Slashdot today. With retrievr you can search the collection of images in flickr by drawing with your mouse in a little sketch pad, similar to MSpaint. Submit your drawing to the Retrivr search bunnies and you will receive a screen full of flickr photos […]

I hate Windows x64. I wanted to try out something new, I had marvellous intentions. My computer had been stolen (along with every other thing in the house that had a cord) and I had the opportunity to get a legit copy of Windows via the insurance. This was August 2005. I was getting a […]

You know those times when you know you really should try something, that friends are using it and say it’s good but for one reason or another you just can’t get around to it? I mean, what you have is good enough – really good even, so what else could be this good?

Update: Opera 9 has a widget for Pandora. I’ve got it set to always on top and stuck it in the corner of my secondary monitor. I’ll keep it there for now while I’m refreshing my knowledge of artist names and song titles. Jeff told Rob, and Rob told me to try out Pandora’s new […]
