O2 XDA Stealth @ Next Mobile

O2 XDA Stealth @ Next Mobile: I like this kind of devices. It is compact, opens with one hand, has a keyboard, and runs Windows Mobile. Hopefully they improve the other characteristics. It could be my PDA of choice.

Enable the connection [HELP]

Enable the connection [HELP] - Problems connecting to VPN with Comodo Firewall.
See also this thread. (This one is better).
I'm too lazy to add the settings to allow connection to VPN. It's easier to disable firewall during authentication and bring it back on right after.
...
Well, after a dozen hangups on authentication, I think I'll implement one of these solutions.
...
The one I implemented is listed here. It works well, allowing the VPN to connect. I used my hostname as the source address.

Then I got 8 emails in my inbox at the old email address (good that I still have access to it). Then I clicked a link to the Registration Benefits Portal and got Page Not Found. Cool. Thanks for all the benefits, Microsoft. :)

Windows Vista: Compare Editions

Windows Vista: Compare Editions - Comparison of Windows Vista editions. Different laptops come with different Vista version and I'm wondering which one should I take. Most of the software I use is free/Open Source anyway so I don't need anything more than Windows XP offers but I need Vista because XP is going to be outdated sooner or later.

Bicycle

Viewing Image: "You know, you can add your own quotes on the quotes page. Need inspiration? Think along these lines: 'When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.' Emo Philips"
- Lol, another one!

Atheists

Viewing Image: "Let's start with a quote: 'I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours' Stephen Roberts"
- Hahaha, a great one. :)

This Previous Weekend

No photos from this weekend as I'm getting into the holiday mode. Forgetting camera, resting at the beach, etc. Visited biker's meeting at Livno. Windy and rainy. Went to see the wall of death. Excellent entertainment.
Spent the nights at the coast and even went for a swim. :)

TweakGuides.com - ATI Catalyst Tweak Guide

I'm lost between bookmarks, saving pages locally, adding links to my web site, and writing blog entries with links. :-X Having links in my blog entries makes it easy to find it online by using search option on Blogspot. Saving them locally makes them searchable by desktop search engines.
Anyway, here's a link that I often send to people, explaining how to completely remove ATI display (video) drivers and install newer ones. This can be a tricky operation so it's useful to have a manual close by.

Mozilla Thunderbird 2 Beta 2 Release Notes

Mozilla Thunderbird 2 Beta 2 Release Notes
Beta 2 available. Hope the final would come out soon.
I hate installing betas because all of the goodies (extensions, themes) then stop working.
According to the roadmap the final should come after the two RCs, sometimes in March or so.

Started using Notepad++ instead of Notepad2. The reason was issues with selecting the font encoding for text files containing Unicode characters.

The author is using Google Notepad for storing bookmarks. Not a bad idea at all. Notebook is better for storing bookmarks than Google Bookmarks itself. :)
And the BlogThis has it's old functionality back, with or without Google Toolbar for Firefox. All the extensions work the same way again.
