bad web authoring/editing?

I guess this website doesn't "clean-up after themselves"...

"FCC Waves Fine Against TV Station in Arizona"

"FCC Waives Fine Against TV Station in Arizona"


Firefox 2 has built-in spell checking...

...and "Session Restore": if Firefox has to restart or closes when it comes back you’ll pick up exactly where you left off. The windows and tabs you were using, the text you typed into forms, and the in-progress downloads you had running will all be restored...

Palm accessories experiences

I had a RhinoSkin Palm LifeDrive Aluminum Hardcase that impressed me initially. After I dropped it (the LifeDrive in the case), I was never able to bend the case so the LifeDrive fit properly. And, after a few weeks, the screw on the back of the case for the belt clip broke-off...

The Palm Hard Case for the LifeDrive: I'm not happy with it. I don't know what happened, and may have done, but I cannot easily open the door...

I use a Palm TX, and LifeDrive...the synching/charging cables that came with the units don't firmly attach to the units: when synching, it is possible for the operation to be interrupted (if the unit is not physically stable, the contacts between the units and the cables can seperate). I purchased a Palm Cradle Kit: just as bad...I sit the units in the cradle, but then spend time trying to make sure they are seated as firmly as possible so there are no disconnections during synchronization.

When you have a power supply/adapter that is larger than a standard electrical cord plug, you are using a power strip, and the outlets are so close together the adapter will not allow you to use the next open one...this item will place the over sized adapter away from the power strip.

Opera USB 9.10

Ick...Firefox (2) on usb seems to render MUCH better, and faster.

lapdesk for computers

I don't recommend the new Targus Notebook Portable LapDesk: too flimsy/not sturdy...

"flash", versus "hard disk", drives

I purchased a DiskGO USB 2.0 Flash Drive (see, also)...

...and don't recommend that you get one with a body like this:

I found that the plastic covering can be too easily removed. I'm now storing mine in a USB drive case.


I've become VERY fond of non-hard drive based portable drives: I have ALWAYS been able to get them to "stop" when using "Safely Remove Hardware" in Windows (not so with the hard disk drives).

use Windows and/or MSN Messenger?

Windows® Messenger vs. MSN® Messenger: What is the difference?
