First up: A confession. I’m not a cricket fan. I hardly ever watch it. Tests or ODI’s, it doesn’t matter, I’d probably watch an over or two, and then just flip channels. Over the past couple of weeks, IPL has been a huge event here in India, and a new source of entertainment for Indians - I mean, never have we had anything like this - Stars owning teams, Franchises, foreign superstars, previously never thought of players playing together and oh yes, cheerleaders. Even with huge hype of IPL Twenty20 cricket, I’d never seen a single match here in Chennai - mainly because of CAS which meas that all the “goody” channels are available on a subscription basis, and since I stay in a lodge these aren’t available to me.
Well, I’m pretty sure most of you are heavy GMail users. For me GMail is my primary mail service now, with my domain-based mail running on Google Apps. As good as a service GMail is I find certain things annoying - such as the the way it defaults to top posting instead of bottom posting! And of course the default interface is a bit bland. That’s where Better GMail comes in. Better GMail is a collection of Greasemonkey userscripts all rolled into 1 neat Firefox addon!
Some of the features Better GMail has include
- Support for themes
- Saved searches
- Keyboard macros
- HTML signatures
- Bottom posting instead of top posting
- Attachment icons indicating file types
- Unread mail count in tabs
I hang out couple of tech forums while I’m free - gives me a general idea of what hardware configuration is more or less “standard”, and one of the worst mistakes I’ve been people doing is that they COMPLETELY ignore the PSU(or SMPS, as it’s often known). I mean we’re talking about Quad Core processors, 8800GT graphics cards, hard drives in RAID and what not, only to get a cheap local, generic 500W/600W PSU, thinking the higher the wattage, the better it is for them. The problem is that these can’t deliver the current required for these high-end components, neither are they reliable or efficient - the components inside are of the worst quality.
