Broadcast message from root@psrv (pts/1) (Sun Dec 24 23:10:37 2006):

noooooooo i can still server web pages dont kill me…
The system is going down for system halt NOW!

FINALLY got around to migrating all the configuration to falco. psrv is now out of server – replaced by a much more powerful system. you should feel a difference when loading websites – almost 3x the processing power… and a lot less noise :) .

what will happen to this url?  it kind of doesn’t make sense anymore!

opera trial was released today it seems.


  • plays flash
  • renders pages accurately
  • full javascript/everything you’d expect from opera


  • doesn’t run at fullscreen res – ugly black border
  • zoom breaks sometimes
  • can’t navigate with d-pad
  • can’t hide toolbar
  • no gestures! :(

even though its named a “trial”, i would call this a beta.  or an alpha.

thunderbird 2.0b1 is niice.  i’ve been using it at work all week and am now convinced that i should swap my home client from outlook2003.  as it was the last day at work for a week or so, i spent some time tidying up my desktop.  nice and clean it is :) .  its amazing how much more of a pleasure it is to work when you have a nicely setup pc.

seasons greetings to all, and stuff.  enjoy the stinking hot weather while you can!
