Driving out to buy my dinner. No idea what to eat. Too much sea food these days. Maybe another subway. At least no junk food.

Oracle Secure Enterprise Search works very similar to ALUI Crawlers, that's good. Easy to move to the new SES. Will look in to UCM later.

@Fenng How many people are there? I should come and see events like this when back in Shanghai. Do remember to post the ZFS ppt:)

@bucchere I prefer gCal + RTM. It's better. You can try, Chris. Try to keep you GTD tools simple. Some GTD guru told me.

@88Michael Ha, seems to like that. From Tiger, the patch became bigger and bigger, really big chunk. But less pain than applying M$ patches.

@Fenng Hey, you should try Thunderbird and addons, that's the ultimate Email client. Especially your company email supports IMAP:) Trust me.

Just found that HFS 2.2 supports folder archiving, so we can download all files in a folder at once, beautifully done. Donate 5$ to support!

Dropped Sysinternals Desktops. VituaWin is good enough to keep my windows in good order. But still as good as Linux/Mac OS X.

End up giving up buying Aspire One, coz the SSD built-in sucks. May consider Eee PC 901 again, although it's expensive.

Just found Oracle's SQL Developer is not bad, but the Swing UI is not responsive. Anyway, it's free, it's good.

Sushi train again for lunch. I like the big crab meat roll but it is hard to grab one during weekdays. ha.

VituaWin is much better than Desktops. Stick with it now on Windows. Expect Leopard Expose like feature to be added.

via Twitter Web Client

Sysinternals' Desktops, 62k, enable virtual desktops in Windows. COol, like workspace in Gnome/KDE and spaces in Mac OS X.
