Google Betas Chrome 4, Touts 30% Speed Boost

paulius_g Re:Love to use it, but... (383 comments)

Yeah, it's a shame. I'd love to see official versions for both Mac and Linux as soon as possible.

This really reminds me of Skype. The Skype version for Windows is ages ahead of the ones on Mac and Linux. I had to use Skype on a Windows computer, and I was blown away by the interface changes and features. Let's hope that Chrome doesn't become that.

Granted, at least Google is working a Mac version. There are even development builds that can be downloaded. I don't think it's anywhere near beta quality, though. Hopefully this doesn't mean that by version 6 of Chrome for Windows, Mac users will be rewarded with Chrome 1 for Mac :-P

Low-Power Home Linux Server?

paulius_g Re:Linkstation Pro Duo (697 comments)

Yup, 10W is closer to the truth. If the drives are working hard and seeking, I think most drives actually approach 15W.

You can cure this by using WD's "green" series drives. They use around 5W when idle and less than 10W when seeking. Their performance is almost at par with their normal drives, and it's perfect for a NAS or storage device.

GMail Experiences Serious Outage

paulius_g Re:Indeed (408 comments)

Why is the parent modded funny? I think it's an honest comment. I've been using Gmail for 5 years now (precisely since September 2004) and this is only the second outage that I've experience which prevented me from logging in.

The only thing that bugs me is the Gmail user interface. Sometimes it doesn't record my actions (such as reading messages) and has an indefinite "Loading..." message which forces me to reload the whole page. But, this could also be something related to Safari.

How Do You Create Config Files Automatically?

paulius_g Re:standard VM image? (113 comments)

ZFS has de-dupe and it's free and open source. There are some companies making (some even open source and free) storage appliances using ZFS with all it's amazing capabilities. Then, you can connect to it via iSCSI for virtualization or FTP, SMB, etc for the rest.

London's Oystercard Gets New Contract, But Same Suppliers

paulius_g Re:Bank station (143 comments)

They changed some escalators in the Montreal (Montreal, Quebec, Canada) metro too and it seemed like it took forever.

I recall the escalator change at the Guy Concordia station taking at least 12 months, more like 14 I believe.

Now they also have their new Opus system, which looks very similar to the Oystercard system. It's ridiculous. It's slow, their refill terminals are running Windows XP and I've seen them crash, and all the seniors using the subway are utterly confused.

In the recent builds of Apple's new operating system, Mac OS X Leopard, developers have started noticing that there is an option to format a partition using ZFS (Zettabyte file system). There is still no mention from Apple whether this will remain in the final builds, but the file system matches exactly Apple's plans for Leopard. This article will explain you everything that you need to know about ZFS aswell as why I'm so exciting about its inclusion. Read on to learn more."

But, there is still one industry which is relying every day, mostly, on old technologies. Sure, some theaters have the greatest and most expensive digital cinema equipment, but most movie theaters still use old film technology to present movies. Ever wondered how they do it? I've found this very interesting article which was written by a projectionist himself."
