The new Safari. [Mar. 4th, 2009|11:53 am]
Julian Tyler
The new Safari Browser is wonderful. The history content search feature is great, often I want to find a webpage that I have visited but I can not remember the title. It seem a bit faster than the old safari but not by leaps and bounds.

However I do not like how they have moved the tabs to the title bar. When ever I try to move a safari window I end up reordering the tabs.

Apparently the Safari 4.0 Beta has lifted the Safari market share to 10%.

I use both firefox and safari. I generally use safari for general browsing and firefox for facebooking and livejournaling.

On a different note. I liked this story on slashdot: http://yro.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=09/02/27/1641257 - btw 40,000 SEK is about 7000 AUD

Odd and probably not interesting [Mar. 3rd, 2009|02:28 pm]

I saw this a few days ago.

RIP "Checkout Closed" sign. I think it is odd that companies think that making the "Checkout Closed" sign more friendly is going to have any effect on our shopping habits.

PS: Don't you get served "at" a checkout, not "on" a checkout. I might sit on the conveyor-belt next time j/k. I can't remember if I ever did that as a child. However I do remember when the new-fangled conveyor-belts with the infrared sensors came out, I was such a geeky kid.

Whats this? [Feb. 26th, 2009|03:24 pm]

Excuse my ignorance but does anybody know what these signs mean? I've been seeing them all over the place.

Now on to something completely different. What the hell should I do with my hair. Everybody seems to have a different opinion. Should I cut it short, or should I just thin it out a bit?

I Hate Spam [Feb. 23rd, 2009|07:57 pm]

I hate spam, clear and simple.

I wouldn't mind spam so much if it was trying to sell me something interesting. Yet over 95% spam
can be categorized into four distinct categories.

1. Penis Size
2. Find Singles
3. Replica Watches
4. Making Money, Pyramid Schemes.

Looking at those categories I am filled with worried for our society. It also jumps
out at me, that it is mainly male targeted. I have seen a few "breast pill" spams
but compared to the volume of "penis size" it's almost not existent.

Is your spam different to mine?

I also hate spam because it makes me worry about spam filters. Am I missing mail?
Is my mail getting threw? I never know, I worry when I send things with
strange subject lines, as people may just delete thinking it's spam.

I just hate spam.

Bored.... [Feb. 23rd, 2009|02:33 pm]

Business is slow at the moment. Nothing is even breaking, I pray for something to break.

I'm almost out of busy work to do. I've written so many unimportant remote monitoring scripts.

The last few days, I've been searching for some sort of project to get involved in. I'm
finding it hard to come up with any good ideas.

Making Things Meme [Feb. 12th, 2009|01:55 pm]

Yoinked from sylver_spiders/atygir. I too doubt I'll get five respondents.

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me. My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

* No guarantees that you will like what I make.

* What I create will be just for you.

* It'll be done sometime this year.

* You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story, a CD, something blinky or shiny. I may draw or sculpt something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!

* I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch: you have to repost this of course!
