While StumbleUpon, Google, WordPress plugin are already making things easier if you want to discover new sites, some new perspectives are always good. Why? ‘Cause relevancy is the big word that comes without any real ways to quantify it. Google search results are great but can you assign them a ranking? Similar is the thought process of Youlicit team. Youlicit, which is right now under private-beta, delivers your fresh sites by looking at the site you are located on.
You get the usual 3 options to get going – Youlicit bookmarklet, or Search, or just start browsing the site. Either way once you are on Youlicit, you can quickly discover new sites by click on the “More” link next to each URL. Each click takes to you more interesting stuff and your adventure is just starting. If you want to change context quickly you can always switch using keywords coming up on top. Youlicit has this concept of “expert” who basically the users saving lot of content at the site. The export associations are done at the tag level. So, you might be able to follow people according to the tags you like, which sounds somewhat del.icio.us’y.
It is only the longer term experience that can tell which of the above engines are relevant. As for Youlicit, freshness of results and viewing history would make the experience way better and get it the much needed starting up traction. But for me, since I had never really tried StumbleUpon, Youlicit seems like an interesting place to start from.

iPodVolumeBooster is a small Application which acts as a Workaround for the Volume Limited iPod’s which are sold in the Europe area.
In order to perform this, the program changes a database which is commonly maintained by the iPod.

Thus the mp3 files carried by the iPod will not be touched!

Wyzo

wyzo.png

Firefox is a browser with a pretty strong following, and for a good reason. It is powerful, supports open standards and is very flexible with a veritable host of plugins expanding its functionality. The only thing that it does not have, is an OS X look and feel. While this might seem a superficial point, it is a very valid one. Most OS X applications are Cocoa, and they look and behave in a certain manner that is consistent with the OS. Firefox neither looks nor works like the average OS X applications, and this can be annoying. While most are simply waiting for Mozilla to finally update the Mac version of Firefox with an appropriate look, there is an alternative solution… use Wyzo.

What it does
Wyzo is to Firefox what Shiira is to Safari. It uses the same underlying technology as the Mozilla browser, but builds upon it in a different way. The result is something that has all the power of Firefox, but looks and behaves quite different. Both handle the web pages the same, and many other features are cross-compatible, but the differences between the applications are huge.

Working with it
Wyzo is marketed as a media browser that “focuses on optimizing your online media experience.” The developers claim that “Wyzo gives you easy access to all your favorite media sites, downloading media content and inform your friends about your discoveries.” Besides rather lacking in the grammar department, the previous statement sounds rather fantastic and has little to no basis in reality. I’ve poked everywhere in this browser and in its help and forums, and have found nothing about easily accessing media sites beyond a few bookmarks, and as far as downloading content and informing your friends, there simply isn’t anything there. The developers might be trying to

market Wyzo as being different, but the truth of the matter is, this is just a browser like any other.

In terms of actual functionality, Wyzo can do everything that Firefox can, as they are both built on the same core. This even extends to things such as plugins which are fully compatible. In essence, you get a Firefox that looks and behaves slightly different. Unfortunately, despite looking significantly better than Firefox, this program is an absolute pain to work with.

All wrong
Wyzo has a lot going for it over Firefox if you go by looks alone. However, once you get past the first look, things start getting really, really ugly. Sure, it may have a nice soft white interface but when most things don’t work the way you expect them to, that doesn’t really matter.

The first thing that dumbfounded me was the inability to use modifier keys to determine how links will open. There is no modifier key to make links you click open in a new tab instead of the current one, but there is one for quickly downloading the linked file or opening the link in a window. To open links in new tabs, you either go the contextual menu route, or you drag them onto the tab bar… who thinks up this stuff.

Speaking of shortcuts, if you were expecting standard OS X shortcuts, think again, almost none of the normal web browser shortcuts apply, and nearly all of them make use of Control instead of Command. Equally annoying, the standard OS X Command plus H for hiding the application will instead bring up the history. Quite sad, since the program also features a few nice ideas such as using different modifier keys when hitting Enter to auto-complete an URL with .com or .net, or using Option plus Enter to open the URL you just typed in a new tab.

Other strange behaviors include the way tabs are handled when they are closed. There is a separate close window and close tab command, which is good. However, when you get to the point where you only have one tab, the program is not intelligent enough to actually close the window when you close that final tab. Instead, it does something much more humorous. It will close the tab, as any content you might have had loaded disappears, but then it will automatically open a new one.

Other faulty behaviors include weird blurring and distortion of the tab names when watching videos. This always happens, but it’s quickly rectified by interacting with the tabs.

At first glance, Wyzo seems like a very nice Firefox replacement, and it really has the potential to be one; unfortunately, it is simply killed by all the bad interaction issues. There is simply no way that someone used to OS X would use this over Firefox, it is just as bad as an X11 application. The developers really need to stop and read Apple’s user interface guidelines before the next update.

The Good

It looks good and has quite a few very nice ideas when it comes to shortcut possibilities.

The Bad

A pain to use, lacking some basic options, and doing the rest in an inconsistent manner with the other OS X browsers.

The Truth

If you were considering Wyzo as an alternative to Firefox, do yourself a favor and stick to Firefox. This program has potential, but the developers really need to stop and look at how the other OS X browsers work instead of just porting across the application from windows and leaving nearly all the browsing shortcuts the same as on the PC.

LEE “SCRATCH” PERRY INTERVIEWED…

scratch-002.jpg

This interview took place on September 9, 1999, via phone from Melbourne, Australia to Lee Perry’s house in Switzerland. When I rang at the agreed time, Lee’s wife answered. She told me told me that Lee was “dancing or something like that”, and asked if I could call back in a half-hour. I did, and after some waiting, the Upsetter himself took the phone. It was a fantastic experience to talk to him, but it wasn’t easy. Even if I could understand the words he was saying, I couldn’t necessarily comprehend was he was talking about, and it was only while transcribing this that some answers became clear to me. I was also a little thrown by the fact that he apparently wants to disown his reggae past, which made some of my prepared questions difficult to pose. That said, some very interesting points were raised, particularly in regard to his burning of the Black Ark, and the pressures of working with a “poverty” music. This interview was recorded for airplay on my reggae radio show “Chant Down Babylon”, set to coincide with Perry’s tour of Australia in late September 1999.

JESSE: With me right now on the line, I’ve got one of the biggest living legends of reggae; Lee Scratch Perry, the original Upsetter. Thank you for taking the time out to speak to me Lee.
LEE: It’s a pleasure Jess. I found out you have such an interesting show, called Chant Down Babylon. Chant Down Babylon is what I’m doing right now from Switzerland mountain, from my chapel. And I have all the powers that you need to Chant Down Babylon, while I’m in the cluster, hitting the Pope with a knuckle-duster.
JESSE: Yes I !
LEE: Enjoy your reggae show… and have all the fun that you think you desire. And all the people with you on your side, I wish them happiness, and success in this revolution of chopping down Babylon.
JESSE: Yes I, it’s fantastic to have you with us.
LEE: I will forever be the exterminator of Babylon.
JESSE: Yes I. Now, you’ve got a lot of nicknames. They call you Scratch, The Upsetter, Pipecock Jackson, the list goes on and on. What’s your preferred title, what do you like to call yourself ?
LEE: Scratch. Scratch means more to me. Because I go by the alphabet and Scratch the S is for the sky. And the S also mean the American dollars. And the S also for space. Which is Scratch, Scratch, Scratch. And also the turntable, the Lion. So I prefer to be called Scratch.
JESSE: Right. Right. Now, you’ve been involved with reggae from the very beginning. What made you decide to enter the music business ?
LEE: Um Well, from the beginning I wasn’t really a reggae man; I was a soul man from the beginning. But when I see what was in Jamaica, and see all the people suffering in Jamaica, I think that nuthin’ [else] like reggae could help them. So I was starting to get involved in the reggae then I discovered that the meaning of the reggae it mean a strange dog who is designed to kill. So I won’t let the reggae kill me, but whoever the reggae must kill, the reggae must kill. So I’m going back to my place in (?) to record rock music, pop music, disco music, techno music, and no reggae music will be allowed within (?) after I return from Zion.
JESSE: Right.
LEE: But the reggae has already done its job.
JESSE: Okay.
LEE: But there won’t be another reggae artist come back in heaven for sure. You’ll have music that you won’t miss any reggae. I’m going to make music that you don’t miss reggae.
JESSE: Okay.
LEE: Mmm.
JESSE: Alrighty well many regard you as the godfather of reggae. What do you think about those sorts of statements ?
LEE: Godfather of reggae ? Who call me.. they don’t call me that !
JESSE: They call you that over here in Australia, on all the posters they’ve got up
LEE: I will sue people that do that.
JESSE: Oh really.
LEE: I don’t want to be the godfather of reggae.
JESSE: Right.
LEE: Because most of the people that follow reggae they are dreads and they’re too ugly.
JESSE: Okay.
LEE: I’ve seen this ugliness. Wherever you see you see ugliness.
JESSE: Right.
LEE: Too much bad man and the raggamuffin a come out of it. That’s why myself in my original state is a soul man, what I was before meeting Bob Marley the reggae king. Now the reggae kings are dying and the reggae princes are dying, and I don’t want to die in it. But I will assist it to do what it have to do. I used to love reggae, but I’m not a reggae lover anymore, I stop make reggae.
JESSE: Okay.
LEE: And the show that I’m coming to do, it won’t be a reggae show I’m positively sure.
JESSE: So is that why you burned down the Black Ark studio ?
LEE: Yeah, because it was built to be a reggae studio, and I find I make a mistake, and burn it down. I don’t want things like that in my house, or my yard anymore. No poverty around me anymore. Poverty is not good. Poverty is the worst crime. And whenever you have anything in poverty, people coming around it. Push it away, otherwise it will bring you down like they were.
JESSE: I recently heard a rumor that you were rebuilding the Black Ark studio, or starting another studio.
LEE: Yeah, but it won’t be a reggae studio this time. It will be a rock studio, a pop studio, a jazz studio, disco studio, techno, and club studio, or just what happens. I’m not going to go back into the gutter with the sufferers; I’m not a reggae artist anymore. I am black, but I’m not even black anymore.
JESSE: Oh really?! Okay. Well, I know that back when you used to do a lot of reggae, you produced some of the most heavy Rasta that ever came out of Jamaica or anywhere else for that matter.
LEE: Okay, but out of those reggae that I produce out of Jamaica, I wanted to build the Black Ark studio and there was no money coming from Chris Blackwell and Island Records. And neither from Bob Marley. Bob Marley write Jah Live and die. What a ting dat. Bob Marley write Jah Live and he die. Then what he want to do, him say God send God as a lion ? He write Small Axe, he said and mek the axe chop him. And he sing Duppy Conquerer and the duppy conquer him, so he’s telling lie. But I don’t want I will assist you people to do what you have to do with it, but I’m going back to Jamaica to build the Ark of the Covenant, but there won’t be no reggae musician nor dreadlocks coming through that gate. Say judgement and justice.
JESSE: Right.
LEE: Mmm.
JESSE: Okay, so you say there won’t be any reggae or any dreadlocks coming through the gate ?
LEE: No reggae artist, too lie. And the reggae too thief and wicked.
JESSE: Well, I know you don’t wear any dreadlocks, but have you ever considered yourself a Rasta ?
LEE: I always wanted to do it, but I didn’t know that’s why all the people who wear dreadlocks it’s a curse them have. I shall not pick up a curse, and my locks shall not wither. Says God’s son of David. My locks shall not wither, and my body shall not see corruption. And I shall not pick up a dread curse on my head. Cause I’m well blessed, I’m not cursed.
JESSE: Mmm. Okay.
LEE: I’m defending Jesus Christ. And a few dread defend Jesus Christ and say Jesus exists. And people say who say Jesus no exist, they die because they say dat. Like Peter Tosh.
JESSE: Like Peter Tosh ?
LEE: Yeah. All people who say Jesus Christ no exist they shall die. While I shall laugh, ha ha ha.
JESSE: Right. So what do you think about all the reggae singers over there in Jamaica right now. All the guys like Sizzla and Capleton.
LEE: I think it’s finished, I don’t think they have any chance. Maybe though Scratch them ‘ave a chance, but I’m Scratch. And I really decide not to help Jamaican again. I know care who they are. Not even my family I won’t help again in Jamaica. I will not live on through the reggae. And I’m the richest man in the world, I inherit all the money and all the power. And I will not help a Jamaican again as long as I live, so help me God. And as the sun shine, and as the clothes fly. I will never change my hands and help a Jamaican again, never.
JESSE: Okay, well you worked with just about everybody in reggae, and produced a lot of the stuff. Is there any of that stuff you look back on now, and you feel particularly proud of ? How do you feel about your great body of work ?
LEE: I build all of my life in Jamaica, and I don’t have any of those tapes. They all thief, and sold to Chris Blackwell, and Bob Marley says him write them all. They give me none of the money, I get broke and get what you call bankrupt, and none of them lend me any money. They (?) and laugh at me, so my white fans in England that love me so much, that I would go to England and go to the top of show business, and I’m not responsible for what happens to reggae anymore, I will not (?) and help it. And I am positively sure, the reggae won’t be going as far as where I’ll be going. So when I need money for show business, give me back the Black Ark studio. And I’m not going to take my show business money and go back and put it in a reggae artist. I don’t owe them no favor and they don’t owe me none. They did not vote for me, they vote for Bob Marley, and Peter Tosh, and Bunny Wailer, and Chris Blackwell. So I don’t owe Jamaican reggae no favour.
JESSE: Hmm.
LEE: No favor, and no favor.
JESSE: Okay. Well.
LEE: I’m not the godfather of reggae.
JESSE: Okay.
LEE: I have nothing more to do with it.
JESSE: Okay.
LEE: And the music that I’m going to play won’t be reggae for sure. And people won’t moan and enjoy.
JESSE: Right. So when you come out here to Australia, and you play here in Melbourne, what sort of music can the people expect from that ?
LEE: Rock, pop, jazz, techno, disco, and everything that sound good international.
JESSE: Okay. I know that in the last decade or so, all your performing has you haven’t done much producing, it’s mostly been performing sort of singing and chanting how do you describe your performance style ?
LEE: My performance style ? I am imitating Jesus. So my performing means spiritually healing, healing the brain of the sick people. Who are dread, and who are dead. So I have to come back and heal their brain, and heal their head, and save those from cocaine reggae. Save some from cocaine reggae, and from cancer reggae, and from death reggae. The gift of God is eternal life. And if a man is dead, don’t boil the dead, because he dead, dead, dead because he dead the sin. You can’t die unless you sin. You cannot scruple unless you sin. And you cannot paralyze unless you sin……

(phone line drops out) I call back and Lee’s wife answers. She tells me to call back in 30 seconds, so I hang up and call back as requested. (Lee answers)

JESSE: Can you still hear me?
LEE: Yeah, I can hear you.
JESSE: Excellent, excellent. I don’t know what happened there, the phone just cut out or something.
LEE: Well, um.. maybe the power.
JESSE: Okay.
LEE: Because the whole thing is obeah. Obeah from Jamaica. And they are trying to pull me back into the reggae. I will assist you people to do what you want to do with the reggae, but I’m not going back into it. I will supply you with better music than the reggae, because I have gotten all the money and all the power. And I don’t want to go back into some things where I see to much poor people a crowd me gate.
JESSE: Right.
LEE: I want to create in the year 2000, with a hit record, chart record, top record. Record that can sell a hundred, thousand, millions. Not a reggae album which sell three thousand. When you make a record that sell three thousand, you cannot pay the studio time, and you cannot pay the artist, and the artist say you rob him. Your song is number one, and you only sell three thousand, waste of time, waste of energy, waste of money. And I have no time for anything stupid as that.
JESSE: Okay. You say you’re..
LEE: It will have my flavor, and my spiritual feeling, and my spiritual healing in it. That when you hear it you will be able to say “did he change rock music into something else ?” Because you will hear magic. Rock magic music. Pop magic music, Jazz magic music, that you won’t know what it is, you will say it sound maybe like reggae but it won’t be reggae for sure.
JESSE: Well..
LEE: It with a space music! Space out. Music make you feel like you want to fly. Music to heal your brain, heal your heart, and heal your thoughts.
JESSE: Okay. Sounds great.
LEE: Something very special.
JESSE: Sounds very good indeed.
LEE: Music to make you walk on the air, music to make you walk on the wire. Heh heh heh.
JESSE: Now, when you’re walking on the wire, do you often smoke herb ? Do you still smoke herb, I know you used to smoke a lot back in the early days.
LEE: Of course I smoke herb. But not much like I used to before. I’m smoking less herbs now.
JESSE: Right.
LEE: Smoking less, because those days I was too high, and didn’t see what was happening. While I was getting high they was stealing my tapes. Stealing my master tapes to sell to Mr Blackwell. And after I use up too much of my money, and spend too much of my time, and my energy with them, and get bankrupt, then I discover that most of my tape has been gone. Then I was working with Blackwell, then he had put out Arkology. And he pay me six maybe six thousand.. um.. down on those three CDs. Promised to pay royalty, and we didn’t get a statement nor as much as royalty.
JESSE: Really.
LEE: And all those Trojan thousand of LP from Trojan, I never have any royalty off dem yet. And I don’t think I’m going to get any. I don’t want to go back into it, and I don’t want to be the godfather of reggae anymore.
JESSE: Right, so you’ve gotta do your own thing now.
LEE: Yeah.
JESSE: Right. Well, I know that a lot of electronic music these days has sort of grown out of reggae in some ways. How much of a debt do you think the modern electronic music has to reggae music, and dub techniques ?
LEE: Well, um. The thing about electronic music, people love it because mostly they’re like the teenagers now. Who want to get in music. They love it electronic music, and they will love it until them hear something better. So when something come better they will accept it, but right now they’re going to love the electronic music. Until something come better.
JESSE: Right.
LEE: If reggae can (?) and make the reggae holy, and make the reggae righteous, make it godly and no put no cocaine in it, then the children can like it better. But until we find the right people to make holy righteous music, we’re not going to stop electronic music.
JESSE: Right. So these days you’re working mostly with Mad Professor. You’re touring with him when you come to Australia. What attracted you to working with Mad Professor ?
LEE: Well, let see. When I was in Jamaica, and after things happen and I get bankrupt, and I made my way to London, he was the one who decide to go out with me, so we could make some money to live. Because I wasn’t getting any money from those records I was making in Jamaica, and neither royalty until now. So he was helping me til then, and til now we be locked into this touring business and the show that we have the best show on earth.
JESSE: Yes I. We’re very much looking forward to seeing that show.
LEE: You’re going to love it.
JESSE: Oh yeah. What can the people expect in Melbourne expect when they see you down here.
LEE: What type of people ?
JESSE: What can the people expect ?
LEE: Me. Kids mostly, cause if I don’t see kids I’m going to get mad. Because I was working for grown up people, but the children mean more to me than grown up people.
JESSE: Right.
LEE: I’m more interested in seeing children. Children can understand me more, and I can understand children more. I’ll be happy to see those grown ups who are there, if they play the part of the children, because if the people are humble, they get the truth from me. And if they are (?) they won’t get anything from me. I work especially for children.
JESSE: Well, I know my little sister has heard a lot of your music, and I grew up listening to that as well, so it’s going to be fantastic for us to see you out here.
LEE: Nice, you’ve got to be kid’s stuff. Must be. Cannot be nothing else but kid’s stuff. I work for children from the very beginning. And I won’t stop.
JESSE: Okay. Well you’re in your early sixties now, and you haven’t shown any sign of stopping. Seems like you can keep going forever, what do you think ?
LEE: Well, I went up to sixty-three. And when I look pon me age, it wasn’t looking good to me, so I changed it from sixty-three to nine. Because six and three cannot be sixty-three six and three is nine. Do you see what I’m saying ?
JESSE: Yes I, I see indeed !
LEE: You’re as old as you think you are, and you’re as young as you think you are. So if I think I was sixty-three, I would throw it in. But I changed my age and say I’m not sixty-three, I’m only nine. Six and three is nine.
JESSE: Right. Well that’s part of the secret to staying young I guess, you know how to do it.
LEE: Of course! I don’t want to be sixty-three, I want to stay with the children, that’s what I’m saying.
JESSE: Right.
LEE: If I don’t see kids there I’m going to get really mad.
JESSE: Okay, I’ll pass that message on.
LEE: There’s got to be children there.
JESSE: Yes, I hope so.
LEE: There must !
JESSE: I’m sure there will be enough people that will be loving to see you on stage.
LEE: I’m not sixty-three anymore, I’m nine! Six and three is nine, I reversed my age.
JESSE: Okay. So are there any words you’d like to leave for all the people in Melbourne here that are listening to this ?
LEE: What I say to the listener, may God bless your ears, listening to Lee Scratch Perry. The richest man on the planet earth, and now millionaire, and the now children teacher, and the now children healer, and the healer of the universe that will heal your brain forever. With music like shower, shower, shower, shower !
JESSE: Fantastic Lee. Thank you very much for speaking to us.
LEE: Okay !

canon_i250.jpg

De cand mi-am pus OSX nu am mai bootat in XP (bleax) evident!

Astazi in schimb am fost nevoit!Trebuia sa ii scot la mama mea ceva la imprimanta si nici nu mam chinuit sa ma uit in OSX gandindu-ma ca e facut de baietzii buni sa mearga pe AMD!

In fine am intrat in XP am zis un BLEAX! si mam pus sa caut cdu de instalare a printerului pentru ca windowsu nu mia recunoscut-o automat!

Evident ca nu am gasit CD-u!

Pune-te pe net si cauta!si am cautat de miau sarit capacele!(nu am chiar ultimu model de printer de la Canon 😛 )

In fine pana la urma am gasit am instalat a mers totu bine!

Am bootat din nou in OSX si am zis ia hai sa vad cum rezolv printeru si in OSX.

A fost destul de greu….dar daca vreti va zic cum am facut :

1.Bagat in priza

2.bagat in usb

3.deschis un text file

4. print

Thats all!

😀

much love

Safari vs Firefox

Safari

Safari

Firefox

Firefox

Bookmarks

  • Web feeds are displayed as a nicely formatter web page with options to sort the articles by date, title or source and set how much of an article is previewed.
  • Bookmarks manager is displayed in the content area instead of a separate window and you can set it as you home page, which some users may find helpful.
  • The bookmarks, the bookmarks menu and the bookmarks toolbar are three different things.
Bookmarks

  • Web feeds can be displayed as web pages, plus you can subscribe to them using a third party application, online aggregator or using native Live Bookmarks which refresh web feed contents automatically and are available as bookmarks.
  • Bookmarks Manager is a separate window. A simple hack can move it to the contents area and set it as your home page as well.
  • Bookmarks are bookmarks. They are all available in the bookmarks menu. The bookmarks toolbar is a special folder. This may change in Firefox 3.
Tab browsing

  • To open a new tab you have to right-click the tab bar and then select the only option (New Tab). How dumb is that?
  • Safari has a nice tab drag effect.
  • The only option to reach a tab beyond your screeen width is to select it from the far right menu that appears when tab overflow occurs (about 17 trab in my 1280 pixels wide monitor).
  • Tabs can be merged into single windows or multiple windows can be merged into one as tabs.
Tab Browsing

  • Double-click on the tab bar to open a new tab.
  • A simple violet arrow points where the tab will be dropped.
  • You can either press the scroll buttons or simply scroll the mouse wheel over the tab bar to reach out of sight tabs.
  • It is not defined if Firefox 3 will include this. In the meantime try Tab Mix Plus.
User Interface

  • It looks and acts totally out of place: it doesn’t use Windows theme, no application name in the title bar, no minimize/restore clicking in the task bar, uses its own font rendering.
  • No toolbar customization available.
  • The progress bar is merged with the location bar. It looks cool. So cool, Apple thinks this is enough to hide the status bar by default. However, without it on sight there’s no way you can know in advance where a link will take you. I guess 9 out of 10 phishers recommend Safari.
  • To open a manually entered web address or search results in another tab you must open a new blank tab first.
User Interface

  • Behaves as a Windows application: there’s no learning curve for basic window interaction.
  • You can customize which toolbars to show and what buttons go on each.
  • The idea of merging the location and progress bars was discussed as during Firefox 2 development but no complete solution (one that doesn’t aid phishers) was found. Fission, a Firefox extension, replicates this behavior and addresses the security concerns. In the meantime the status bar stays for me.
  • Press Alt + Enter in the location or search bar to open a web address or search results in a new tab.
Private browsing

  • Safari automatically deletes any cookie, download history, visited page, searched terms and form information you enter while in private browsing. The downside is that there’s no indication that you are in private mode and you could easily forget to turn it off.
Private Browsing

  • Currently under development for Firefox 3. In the meantime try an extension like Stealther or Distrust.
History

  • The History menu shows visited web pages nicely sorted by date.
History

Search

  • You get Google and Yahoo! search in the search bar.
  • No option to add another search engine or organize them.
  • No search engine discovery.
Search

  • You get Google, Yahoo!, eBay, Amazon, Answers and Creative Commons.
  • You can add as many search engines as you want.
  • Web sites offering search engines are discovered and can be added with a single click.
Languages

  • No one knows for sure in how many languages will Safari be available. But I guess it won’t be many more than the current 18 Mac OS X is available on.
Languages

  • Firefox is currently available in 42 languages for Windows and Linux and 1 less in Mac OS X. Three others are currently under development.
Security

  • Apple believed and swore they had the most secure browser around. 24 hours and not less than 6 vulnerabilities after they were proved wrong.
  • Fast patching.
Security

  • Mozilla’s development takes place in the open and pays for security flaws findings.
  • Fast patching.
Other features

  • No Find as you Type.
  • Spell checking, NTLM authentication and FTP directory listing are coming soon. I’d like to know if spell checking allows multiple dictionaries and quick switching them in a text box.
  • No extensions.
  • No themes
  • No full screen mode.
  • No automatic update.

oare eram prea incantat?

mac_osx.jpg

hai sa va zic ce am mai facut,vreti? 😀

pai miam facut update de la 10.4.8 la 10.4.10!

totul a mers perfect!

dupa aceea ma mancat sa fac update si la kernel…..am deskis terminalu am tastat pe acolo ce am tastat dupa aceea pray and restart! 😛

buuuunn!a mers nu a comentat nimic!

mergea super bine totul!

mam pus pe net sa-mi iau Perian (ceva codecuri pentru QT)….am luat cand am dat dublu click pe respectivul .dmg surpriza!!!!NO MOUNTING!

am zis ca este corupta imaginea!si mam pus si am luato de vreo 5-6 ori si la fel!

Pana mi-am dat seama ca DiskImageMounter s-a dus pe poola!

OK!am zis sigur se poate rezolva!E….. eu nu am reushit!!!! x( (asta nu inseamna ca nu se putea rezolva 😛 )

am incercat sai dau mount din DiskUtility,din teminal sa drag and drop .dmg-ul pe DiskImageMounter nimic!!!!

am luat un alt programel care pretindea ca face mount (Mount mi se pare ca il cheama :P) nimic nici ala!!!!

ce credeti ca a urmat?

restart si re-instaleaza 😀

acuma este totul ok!dar iara ma mananca sa fac update la kernel! 😀

ce sa mai intamplat?

am renuntat la muCommander (chiar nul foloseam si arata ffff urat! )

am renuntat la Y! Messenger….. este chiar penibila versiunea de mac os!Adium in schimb este f fain!singuru lucru care nu este asa de fain la el este ca nu pot sa primesc fisiere doar sa trimit!dar am mail am skype totui chill! 😀

Ma simt nevoit sa revin asupra a doua remarci pe care leam facut in postul trecut , si anume :

1. placa de sunet

deci mp3-urile oricum sunt pe doua canale deci e normal sa mi se auda pe doua boxe! miam luat ceva update pentru sunet si un app SoundFlowerBed (nush cu cat ma ajuta asta) si acum mai trebuie sa fac rost de ceva DVD sau ceva film HD,dolby sum sum sa vad daca a avut vreun effect updateu!

Efect in sensul daca mi se aud toate boxele!Pentru ca effect a avut deja….mai imbunatatit calitatea sunetului pe boxele din fata care se auzeau deja! 😀

2. OSX este usor de folosit! probabil ca din cauza hype-ului sau pur si simplu sunt eu idiot am scris kkt acolo!este usor din pct de vedere ca tastatura imi este la fel si tot am la fel cum sunt eu obisnuit!Daca as avea “a real deal mac” cum am zis cred ca miash prinde un pic urechile in tastara aia!sunt ffff multe shortcuturi(care bine inteles le pot folosi si acum) dar ce este cel mai naspa sunt simbolurile de pe taste cu care nu am de unde si cum sa fiu obisnuit!Ca OS oricum nu este greu!

ce am mai facut?

miam pus Google Notifier!este un app micut care sta in bar si te atentioneaza cand primesti vreun mail sau ceva in Gmail!

Si ceea ce vroiam de mult (prin toate filmele am vazut asta 😀 ) cand primesc mail am pus sa-mi zica MAIL MOTHER FUCKER!(bine asta se poate sin in windows….dar acu am facut rost de sound 😛 )

Eram cam sceptic in privinta Safari-ului!

Dar sincer e chiat tare!

Nu mai e Firefox deafault brower!

Dar le folosesc pe amandoua!

dati un google dupa safari!si vedeti daca este ok si pe windows!

mie in windows nu mai placut deloc!Slow as fuck!

na cam atat pentru astazi!

revin….

much love

mac os dupa 5 zile

picture-1.png

Deci……..NU AM CUVINTE!

Totul merge atza!

Nu imi vine sa cred!

Adobe apps merg unse tot!

O singura problema am,care ma duce in culmea disperarii:placa audio!

am o placa audio creative si una onboard realtek ac ’97 plm placa poporului!

cu toate ca mia detectato automat mi se aude doar pe 2 boxe din 5!

nu gasesc drivere pentru nici una din ele…..si nici nu gasesc sa fac sa mi se auda pe toate cele 5 boxe!

sper sa o rezolv si pe asta si ma declar 100% multumit!

am reusit sa fac sa imi vada HDDu sata cu partitii NTFS! read/write!

Adobe apps merg ca si unse!

nici nu stiu ce sa mai zic!sunt super multumit!am si uitat de windows!

ce am instalat pana acum :

1. VLC player

2. Ilife & Iwork

3.muCommander (gen total commander)(cu toate ca nul prea folosesc 😛 )

4. adobe cs3 design premium

5. yahoo mess & skype

6. firefox

7. transmission ( download torrente)

Este exceptional!

Inainte sa il am tot citeam si auzeam de la prieteni care au za real deal mac ca sistemu de operare e total diferit….si o sa imi trbuiasca ceva timp pana am sa ma obisnuiesc cu el!O POOLA!!!

Este super usor si practic!

imediat mam obisnuit cu el…..cu keyboard shortcuts(cateva or fi mai multe care nu le stiu) si toate cele!

tinand cont ca nu reusesc sa fac sami mearga soundu cum trebuie pana acum ii dau nota 9!

nici nu vreau sa ma gandesc cum merge pe un mac!

An Apple a day keeps Windows away!

picture-1.jpg

FINNALLLLLLLLYYYYYYY!!!!

Astazi am reusit intr-un final sa-mi pun si eu mac OS 10.4.8 pe PCul meu!IM SOOOOO FUCKINNNN HAPPY! 😀 😀 😀

Deci este fenomenal!Am si uitat de tot ce inseamna Windows!!!

Cu toate ca il am pe alt hdd si fac dual boot nici nu ma gandesc sa bootez de pe acel hdd in Windows XP!

Nu imi mai trebe XP,Vista nimic!

Am tot ce vreau! 😀 (ok am sa mai bootez XPu cand mai vreau sa dau ceva in retea;dar aia se intampla f rar so…. 😀 )

Am pus mac OS 10.4.8 pe un HDD Maxtor 80 GB IDE!

Instalarea a durat cam 12 minute!

Mi-a recunoscut tot ….. nu a mai trebuit sa fac nimic!(in yo face Windows!)

A intrat in OS…..mia aparut ceva updates pe care nu leam facut!aaaa ba da am facut update doar la Itunes!

Imi booteaza incredibil de repede!undeva la 10 secunde!

Poate este mult dar daca miar boota si windowsu undeva pana in 10 secunde ar fi prea frumos!

Totul merge foarte smooth and quite!

Intr-o ora jumate de cand il am nu am prea putut sami dau seama de multe trickuri….de cam ce este capabil!

Poti face print screen normal sau poti selecta doar portiunea de ecran la care vrei sa faci prin screen!

Widgetul care iti arata ce temperatura este afara (in Timisoara) este in sfarsit capabil sami dea o temperatura corecta (sau na + – 1,2 grade)

Netu merge blana!Downloadu de la o sursa fixa merge blana (130 de kilo) in windows merge max 125 dar de obicei cam la 119 ii este lui bine 😦

Nu am instalat prea multe deocamdata!

Skype pe care nu lam testat inca!

Yahoo messenger care este in versiunea beta si cam face figuri!dar 80% este ok!

Firefox care merge impecabil!(chiar nu sunt prea curios de Safari! apple im sorry 😦 😛 )

Si Azureus care iar imi merge fff bine!

Verdictul va fi dat atunci cand imi voi instala CS3! atunci sa vedem daca comenteaza ceva cu toate ca nu prea cred!ramane sa vad cum se va comporta!

Cu toate ca ma asteptam sa mearga prost spre ok si ca nu are aceleasi performante ca si pe un mac……mac OS 10.4.8 imi merge impecabil (cu riscul de a ma repeta) si deocamdata nu am nimic sai reprosez!

Este perfect!

repet DEOCAMDATA!(nu stiu de ce sunt sceptic 😛 ….. dar este prea frumos sa fie adevarat 😀 )

Oricum trebe trecut in calendat cu rosu : PRIMUL BLOG SCRIS DIN OS 10 😀

How to take care of ur PC

Ok here i will tell u (from my experience) how to make sure ur pc/windows will run smooth and quiet!

Until 6 months ago or so,i was re-installing my Windows XP every month!Well i didnt actually re-installing it….i had a Norton Ghost image (the only app that i use or shoud i say used from Symantec) that i used to erase my C:\ drive and mount what ever was in that image!

Everything was good rite?Well i got tired to do it every month couse my XP didnt run like i think it should run!

The main problem in the Windows installation is not actually the Windows install it self….but the installation of the graphic card,sound card,everything else i dont even want to mention Adobe CS2 or even worst CS3 which it takes for ever!

So i said ….i should learn how to take care of my pc/windows so i dont have to reinstall it every month or 2 or 3….maybe after 1 year or even better 2 (dont think so…. 😀 )

So this is a few things that u have to do and i guarantee ur pc/windows will run just fine!

1.DON’T VISIT PORN SITES!!!! u fuckin loosers if u can’t score with a real chick i have to words for u COLD SHOWER!or fuck it rent porn!

2.DON’T install every tool bar u find!In fact dont even install a tool bar (doesent metter its the yahoo or google tool bar)

3.DEFRAG ur hdd maybe once every 2 weeks or once a month ….. but defrag it with O&O defrag or something similar,dont use windows default hdd defrag!

4.USE a good antivirus…..in my oppinion Kaspersky is the best (i could be wrong) ….its efficient quiet and dont use much memory!

5.USE a good anti-spyware….this is ur choice !Before u download such an app (oh yeah or buy it) u should do a research!

6.DON’T use Internet Explorer…..i suggest Firefox or Maxthon

7. USE a system optimization app ….. something like Advanced System Optimizer or TuneUp Utilities

8. DISABLE all the unnecessary apps from boot ….START-RUN and type MSCONFIG than go to STARTUP tab and there uncheck what ever u dont need (READ BEFORE U DISABLE SOMETHING) or use some apps such as AUTORUNS 

9.DON’T install themes and other visual styles …… if u want ur windows to look cool (like i always do 😛 ) SWITCH on linux and use Beryl

10. IF u are looking for something on serial/crack site and ur a-virus , a-spyware etc dont even bother to alert u….BE CAREFUL what are u accept to download!

11.DON’T VISIT PORN SITES! 😛

12.DON’T install everything that u see on the web and u think its cool!its all about marketing!analyze if that particular app gives something that u really need!

13. IF ur pc its not that powerful(and i mean reallllyyyyyyy slow pc….maybe some peeps still have them)….u can set windows to run for best performence…..i dont find it that helpful but some peeps do idk!

14. USE Ccleaner……ur on ur own with this app…..read and check what ever suits ur desire!

15. DON’T install all the codecs that u find or ACE mega codec pack or what ever…….use VLC player or mplayer

16. USE the latest drivers for ur cards!

17.DON’T use windows firewall….use a real firewall something like zone alarm or other firewalls.u dont really need a firewall….but open ur eyes when ur on the web!if u just clicking everywhere u see than USE A FIREWALL!

18.U DON’T HAVE TO use e-mail scanner or shit like that…..i mean if u are that kind of a person who thinks that emails such as “U JUST WON 1.000.000 $” is adressed directly to u than u should find a job at A Dream Come True foundation or something like that!

So this is basically what u have to do and dont have to do…..if i missed something i promise i will update!

much love
