Norwegian blogger and Opera employee Arve Bersvendesen writes in his blog: Opera Mini Opera Mini is based on two components. First, there is the client component, which is a J2ME application users can download and install on their phones. Secondly, and more importantly, there is the server component. When accessing the web with […]

Making the most of Google Desktop search

I was a little slow to really pick up how cool Google Desktop Search actually is. Even with it installed I really didn’t get to utilize it 100%. Among the things I couldn’t get it to do, was search through content on network shares. And it seemed that the only way to accomplish Googeling those would be to run an instance of Google Desktop Search on the file server. In my case that is impossible, since Google Desktop Search is only available for Windows and the file server in question

CherryOS, Open Source Software and theft

Or how I came to read about Maui X-Stream and their software (CherryOS and VX30), that it appears is more or less based on every open source software out there. This story by Drunkenblog sets a standard for investigative journalism – one that not many of the regular media institutions can live up to – unfortunately. Deconstructing Maui X-Stream. Please be aware that its probably one of the longest blog postings around.

Shocking news: Apple involved in theft of copyrighted material

I would have thought a software and IP-house such as Apple would keep its path clean and make sure not to infringe other peoples copyright or downright steal other peoples creations. Not so it seems. Apple and copyright violations – Virtuelvis The page in question that had made it on to the Apple web site, was a chopped-off version of the rounded corners tutorial, incorporated into the WebCore layout tests for generated content, most likely since earlier versions of Safari exhibited some very funky rendering (screenshot). The short story: Code,

Jon Udells screencast of the life of a Wikipedia article

This one seems to be going the rounds on the blogs I read: Heavy metal umlaut: the movie Its very interesting to see the evolution of this article through 2 years. To me it shows the power of Wikipedia as an encyclopaedia. Being an old Flash developer, it was also nice to see him using a system that utilises Flash for presentation, its in my mind clearly the right choice on the web today. Naturally I became curious to what tool he might have used. From what I can gather

How to run a program as another user in Windows

Thank you Gisle, I knew there was support for “sudo” in Windows XP, but I have never used it. As most of you know, most single users run their Windows setup as administrators, giving any program or script full access through your user at any time. Its one of the largest security problems facing Windows machines. But there is a way to use Windows with a limited user and quickly change to administrator level when needed.
