Josh’s Lifelog for 2008-09-04

  • XP on Eee PC 901 notes: It just feels FAST. I can’t believe I’m saying this about Windows. Suspend/resume takes about 4 seconds. Sweet! πŸ™‚ #
  • Here’s how I got XP w/SP3 onto a USB stick to install it on the Eee PC 901: http://tinyurl.com/27clyw (well, @gwynnebaer helped me πŸ˜‰ #
  • Into iPhone and mobile devices? You should go to @ravenme’s O’Reilly iPhoneLive conference in Nov.: http://tinyurl.com/66mqr7 #
  • @lyzadanger For me, hashtags have been obsoleted by Summize/Twitter Search. A search there will find all instances, with or without the #. #
  • Just had a great phone conversation with a reporter from AdAge about Kindle Evangelism. Article should be up on Mon, will link then. πŸ™‚ #
  • Hey Intel tweeps – have you been having problems with TinyURL? Help us figure out what’s going on. Search TinyURL on Intelpedia, add ur info #
  • Why does Niall Kennedy’s blog want to use Gears on my computer? http://tinyurl.com/6bxgm7 #
  • @jmartens Picasa 3 (beta) is an update to the app itself, with an update to Web Albums at the same time. #
  • Dear Twitter: Looking for a overclocker willing to be interviewed by an HS student at a pretty technical level. Email or @ me if interested! #

  • Hey, cool! Mike Belshe, who wrote Lookout search for Oulook (and was acquired by MS) is on the Google Chrome team! http://tinyurl.com/6bxgm7 #
  • Since it launched, Google Chrome accounts for 5.07% of the visits to TinyScreenfuls.com. I knew I had geeky readers! πŸ™‚ #
  • Since it launched, Google Chrome has become the #3 browser to visit softwareblogs.intel.com (behind IE and FF). It unseated Safari. :-O #
  • @scaleovenstove Yes, for my blog, I definitely give more weight to feed subscribers than to site visits. Intention and attention count! #
  • @lyzadanger Yes, Macs are still rare at Intel, but that measures hits to our external ISN blog, from sw devs all over the world. #
  • @jmartens It doesn’t include Mobile Safari (iPhone). The numbers for that are lower. #
  • Sad that ORBlogs is closing. Hope the PDX Geek contingent can save it. And it’s awesome that the ORBlogs guy was behind Fuelly.com. #
  • @JoshProStar Here’s an Andy Grove quote: “Only the Paranoid Survive.” πŸ™‚ #
  • Continue to be amazed by the big battery and Atom CPU’s effect on battery life on this Eee PC 901. 3 solid hours of browsing, 60% batt left. #
  • Missing Full Screen in Google Chrome. It matters on the Eee PC’s 1024×600 screen. At least you can hide the bookmark bar with Ctrl+B. #
