I just stumbled upon this interesting website which features a robot that solves rubik's cubes - all by itself!
That website, however, has given in to the latest hype of presenting any moving pictures as flash film. Thanks to youtube we will soon have poor quality images with desynchronized sound tracks...
Anyway, it is a fascinating robot nonetheless
A blog about candy, things made with sugar, things made with chocolate, you get the idea ... open your mouth, expand your mind.
I have, just recently and thanks to dc.com, come across this fine app. This app is an open source password manager that is freely available from the URL above. It has many advantages over other password managers, which will be discussed later on (the advantages), and it appears to have a terrific rating wherever you look. Now, onto the review.
I have tried most of the mainstream desktop search tools, starting with blinkx and the first beta from Google. I especially liked Copernic, and that was the one I ran for the longest period. When Google launched their latest version, I decided to give it another try, tempted by some of the nice interface design work going on over at aqua-soft.org (especially the Getchoo project). Then I installed NOD32, and stumbled upon the documented incompatibility between these two products (read Google websites and you’ll learn it’s NOD’s fault, read security websites and you’ll learn it’s Google’s fault). That was a drag, but not enough to convince to change desktop searcher again. But then I changed my email over to The Bat!, and it was only yesterday that I realised GDS was no longer indexing new mail. A bit of research turned up a plugin for GDS, but that was described as buggy (and I would still have the draggy NOD/GDS problem); so I decided to look around. There is an excellent comparative chart of the various Desktop Search tools over at: http://www.goebelgro...om/desktopmatrix.htm I hadn’t heard of the only program listed there that indexed The Bat!, Archivarius 3000, so I decided to give it a try – and I really like what I found.
