Dropbox Referral Code

If you sign up for Dropbox (which I recommend you do), please feel free to use this link. I'm told I can get up to another 3 GB of free space if enough people do.

Sadly, it does not fix the caching issues. Hrm.

New Safari Beta Soon Please?

I've gotten used to Safari 4's "tabs on top." It doesn't mean I like them, and all of my previous complaints are still valid (to me). That said, I'd really like an update to the beta, even if all it did was fix this problem.

Does this mean that this will no longer be possible ( or is it just talking about ""?

iDisk Sooooooooooo Slow

Why on earth is my iDisk so freakin' slow. Isn't it just a .dmg on my disk that's automatically synced with cloud? Why do operations like copying a file to it or writing a file to it take so bloody long? And why is this still an issue?

Safari 4’s Top Tabs

Backing Up to Amazon S3

I've heard of people using Amazon S3 to backup their home computers, and I've looked into doing this a few times… but isn't it incredibly expensive? I just checked and I have 1050 GB I'd like to back up to another location (beyond the one on-site and one off-site location I have now). Storage is […]

Preferences Safari Needs

Hidden or otherwise: Ignore target="_blank". Don't allow websites to modify window (resize, hide status bar, etc.). Block popups on all sites except… ((I never remember to turn it off the first time I try to print a mailing label at More tk… suggest your own in the forum.

Twitter Usernames

140 characters is not much to work with. Keep your Twitter names short. @ replies suck when you're wasting 20 characters on a username. BTW, mine's "iacas." But that falls under "duh." Follow me if you'd like - I'll probably follow you if I have any clue who you are or if you live in […]
