Most of the things in your life that went wrong last year were due to your lack of organization. You didn’t get the promotion because you failed to meet some deadlines, you didn’t close the deal because you lost your documents, and you got dumped because you forgot her birthday. This time, you’re a new man! And you can be ahead and on top of everything else by being organized! Here’s how.
Ah, the ghost of Christmas past. Before the holidays began you were well aware that you have a credit card balance which you know will haunt you in the coming weeks. Yet you have managed bulk it some more when you bought luxurious gifts for everyone, (even shopping items on discounts can total to a whopping amount of cash when accounted for collectively) and prepared sinfully festive dinners. Disregarding the joy of gift-giving, when the season ends, you will face the reality of being in debt. But don’ fret. We’ll help you get past this one too.
Hibernation has got to be one of the good things that Windows offers for mobile computing. But if you don’t have a real use for it, then why not just turn it off. While there are some good things about it – not losing what you’re doing when you need to shut your computer down – there are some kinks to it that I don’t like to deal with. Like the hibernation file taking as much space as you have physical RAM. And I have 2GBs of RAM and only 120GBs of hard drive space and I’ve actually used a great deal of that. Another 2GBs of data just to store a current session isn’t too attractive at all.
With Vista, there are two ways to disable hibernation. Pick your poison.
Every year, a large number of families move from one place to another. Migration is not always as easy or exciting. Sometimes migration is more than moving on to greener pastures. It also means leaving behind the place you’ve called home, the people you grew up with, and the entire neighborhood where you’ve had most of your fondest memories.
You can always make a home wherever you are. I know a lot of people who have successfully transplanted themselves in new cities and even countries. All you need is some getting used to the new life you have now!
Hey, it’s the new year and why not put up a post to aid a common new year resolution. I personally committed that I’d be earning a lot more money and be “richer” by the end of the year. And I’m quite inspired to reach that goal for this year. We’ve previously created this post on how to make money but without good financial decisions even that wouldn’t translate to being rich.
Here are some ideas on how to get rich. And no, we won’t suggest buying lottery tickets and other get-rich-quick schemes. We do believe in putting effort and hard work.
“Rise up. Help others download a more interesting life.” How’s that for Firefox’s campaign to make people download and use the browser. And Mozilla seems to be going all out in this one complete with a website, an anthem and crazy stats on Firefox users like:
* 123% more likely to be a student
* 35% less likely to be expecting a grandchild in the next year
* 15% more likely to have watched cartoons on TV within the last seven days
* 21% less likely to fish
And the anthem? It’s got lines like:
But some people make choices in life, that turn out pretty lame
Sitting at home drinking white zin, playing a solitary card game.
and my favorite:
Quit your day job with the man.
Rise up! Rise up!
Too bad the site‘s a 401 as of this post.
Hey, I don’t want to make it rain on Mozilla’s parade but I think this is quite the overkill. They’ve definitely won over most of the geeks with Firefox and I believe they’ve been experiencing the best viral marketing by having geeks blog and write all things Firefox. So why have a new campaign? Just fix that damn memory leak issue, will ya?
If you can forage mushrooms in your bathroom, then it’s time to clean up, you filthy pig. Okay, so I’m exaggerating (or am I?). But cleaning your bathroom can really be a chore. And one of the most difficult things to clean in your bathroom would probably be the grout that holds your tiles. Take a look at yours, it shouldn’t be black or moss green or fungal gray. The nasty thing is, you have to put in some intense scrubbing to get into those nooks and crannies. But here’s one technique to help you deal with grout without having to break that arm with scrubbing.
Since we’re all waiting for the big release of Firefox 3, here are some more neat tricks you can do with Firefox. Here’s one for the keyboard ninjas out there who would want a faster way to launch Firefox with sites in tabs. You can simply do this via the Run command in Windows.
- Access the Run window. For keyboard ninjas, it’s a quick Windows Key + R.
- Type in
firefox domain1.com domain2.com domain3.com and so on.
- Hit Enter and watch Firefox launch with all the domains as tabs.
I’ve only tried this on Vista and not in older Windows versions but I guess it would work. In fact, you can even do away with launching the Run window and just key this in the Start menu’s search field.

Back to the question that we’ve posted last year on this blog, but with a look at the other side of the story. Our “Has Sony Killed Blu-ray with No-porn Policy?” made its round in some discussions. Many experts say that the hi-def wars is quite moot. How big is is the adult industry and how big is Warner Bros for them to really factor in th war? The first question has proven to be irrelevant since hi-def p*rn hasn’t really clicked both in the industry and the market. In fact, online adult video streaming sites have made a real blow on video sales.
So now, let’s look into this Warner Bros. thing. Warner has officially said that it will solely support Blu-ray as its publishing format for hi-def. Is this decisive enough to snuff out HD-DVD. I bet Toshiba would be up in arms with such claims of HD-DVD being killed off.
This increases the difficulty of choice for consumers with one outfit would have their releases in Blu-ray, another in HD-DVD. Movie fans and home theater enthusiasts would go berserk since collecting meant having to deal with two different formats. Unless, of course, HD players go hybrid with capabilities of playing both formats. Or will this inevitably lead to consumer apathy?
The devil wears Prada, and sometimes, Versace. It’s bad enough to be ignored by a pretty woman. It’s worse when that woman is as sharp as her heels. Gorgeous career women are hard to get. For one, they have their careers as top priority. And it doesn’t mean they’ll say YES after a bit of cheesy stuff, it means REALLY DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE. But if you really can’t look away, then here are some tips to help you on your most dangerous quest to getting on their good side. Play your cards right, and they might even consider.
