Symbolic links in Windows, finally!

31 mars 2006 | Commentaires fermés sur Symbolic links in Windows, finally!

One feature I love in linux are those symbolic links. I just can’t get enough. I put’em all over the place to simply my life. Up until today, I’d been looking to do the same in Windows XP, without too much success. The fact is this is not new news to hardcore Windows dudes/dudettes. This…

Treo 650 on order

27 mars 2006 | Commentaires fermés sur Treo 650 on order

Well, after months of drooling over the thing, I finally had a good reason to make the move; my Sony Clie T665C is hardly usable anymore, due to the wear and tear it received over the 3.5 years I’ve had it. The writing area is pretty much non-responsive, the digitizer keeps losing focus and running…

27 mars 2006 | Commentaires fermés sur Gregarius and optimal feed reading solution

I’ve just taken another step to living on the edge by moving my feed reading to the edge. I’ve used Gregarius to move my feed-reading to my personal domain where I’ve uploaded both my home’s iMac feedlist (using NetNewsWire Lite) and my work environment (using RSS Bandit), minus my internal IBM w3 feeds. Like my…

March aka end of quarter madness

24 mars 2006 | Commentaires fermés sur March aka end of quarter madness

It’s been a very busy months. Personal projects at home, ibm projects at the office. Many things to set in place early in the year, so that I can breathe a little easier later. Q1 at IBM is always so much about planning and executing, which is a difficult balance to achieve. I’m still very…

21 mars 2006 | Commentaires fermés sur Scuttle upgrade brings tagcloud and new look!

When you get a 0.1 upgrade, you typically expect a few bug and or security fixes. Not this time! Scuttle 0.7.1 finally offers a revamped css theme, as well as replacing the alphanumeric listing of tags with a nicely rendered tagcloud. It’s simplistic, but works well. This software finally lets me combine both private and…

21 mars 2006 | Commentaires fermés sur Check out our blog

Today, you’d have a hard time launching a new website, web applications, widget or whatever else without a blog. It seems that every day, I read about this new AJAX app that’s coming out soon, but in the meantime, be sure to check our blog at aiche-tee-tee-pee-colon-slash-slash-whatever.

Did I mention I’d be away?

7 mars 2006 | Commentaires fermés sur Did I mention I’d be away?

I don’t think I’ve mentionned leaving on vacation, so I thought I’d let you all know so you don’t think the RSS feed is broken or something. I’m on Day 4 of our family vacation, and don’t plan on updating the Life in Technical Sales blog until I return, in another week or so. I’m…

Using the Thinkpad UltraBay in Linux: Part 2

1 mars 2006 | Commentaires fermés sur Using the Thinkpad UltraBay in Linux: Part 2

I’m currently running on RHEL4. Any other linux distro/version could affect if the following works or not.. In /etc/fstab make sure to comment out the the cdrom/cdrecorder line with ‘#’ add this line for the 2nd HDD: \\dev\\hdc _ ddrive _ ext3 _ defaults _ 1_2 (since everything in the right ultrabay is called /dev/hdc)…

Scuttle or having your very own del.icio.us

22 février 2006 | Commentaires fermés sur Scuttle or having your very own del.icio.us

I know I’ve talked about this before, but Scuttle is very quickly becoming an essential part of my computing environment. Just recently, as I switched hosting server, I was having a problem with the Scuttlelicious extension, and couldn’t bookmark stuff. Not fun. The latest version (0.6) now offers: more translations tag clouds caching observable speed…
