MediaCentral for Mac OS X

Convert any Mac (well, 800 MHz G4+ Mac) to a media center. Awesome piece of software. I’m seriously thinking about buying the USB Powerbook remote to really use this well on my 20-inch Dell. Of course, you can control stuff with the keyboard, but that ain’t as much fun as lying on the bed and […]

Origami: O-blimey!

When I first heard all the hype and excitement around Microsoft’s Origami project, I have to admit – I thought it would be a slightly innovative, sort of good looking, but only marginally useful device. I have to admit, I was wrong. It turns out that it lacks any innovation, is ugly beyond belief, and […]

If there’s one word you had to associate with Apple, you’d probably make it design; but one word you gotta give to Apple fans is creativity. Engadget recently held a competition to ask its readers what Steve Jobs will announce tomorrow at an Apple Special event. Well, the results have been posted, the first 2 […]

Flickr is ticking…

Another day, another awesome app for Mac OS X. This is tickr, and what it does can only be described as “simple, but profound”. Give it a tag, and it will fetch interesting photos from Flickr tagged with the tag. And scroll them at a hypnotizingly slow rate on the right side of your desktop. […]

Fedora Core 5 Test 3

I’ve been testing out FC5-test3 for a few days now. Seems to be nice and stable as FC4 was, though with a few annoyances that will hopefully be worked out when FC5 is finally released in mid-March. Here are a few things that caught my attention. The good Hardware support has improved. I tried to […]


Someone runs a webserver with an online forum on a Dell C400 laptop. It has a P3 1.1 GHz CPU, 256 MB of RAM, and a 40 GB hard drive. Fedora Core 4 powers the server, which currently has an uptime of 139 days. Confirm it here.
