Expand Your Brain with Evernote

The features of Evernote sound useful, wonder how it stacks up to other note-taking organisers...

My first F9 restore on the Eee PC

After a few months of usage (and plenty of experimentation) of my Eee PC, I finally had to resort to a F9 restore to bring it back to the original factory settings.

For some reason, I was starting to get error messages. (related to "dcopserver"), and the Eee PC was also getting sluggish.

A quick check via the EeeUser forums revealed a few possible solutions, but after trying them (with limited success), and a urgent project to complete, I bit the bullet and did what is commonly called a "F9 restore".

Now I'm back to plain old Firefox 2.

It seems the problem may return, but I will research more before doing anything silly.

Pulling Power

ITV Local
Well, Top Gear just ended its latest run, and Fifth Gear just started its new season again. But I've just spotted a new motoring show on ITV, called Pulling Power. Another show worth watching is Drive It!, a programme on Deutsche Welle.
