Yahoo! Messenger Beta 7.0

Posted on May 2005 at about 7:31 PM by hwa

Yup! the Yahoo! Messenger is going 7.0 this time, which is cool but still in the beta stage.

While Yahoo! Messenger version 6 introduce audibles, this version it got free worldwide calls!! Wow believe it or not! Worldwide calls from the internet and it’s free!! 😯 Anyway this is what in the official website said.

Free worldwide calls.*

Use Yahoo! Messenger to call and talk over the Internet just like you’re on the phone. All you need is a headset, or a microphone and speakers. It’s that easy – just click the Call button. If no one’s there, leave a voicemail!

You can also get much better sound quality than regular phone lines. Try it out – you and your friends will really hear a difference.

* Emergency 911 calling services not available on Yahoo! Messenger. Please inform others who use your Yahoo! Messenger they must dial 911 through traditional phone lines or cell carriers. Not for use in jurisdictions where use is prohibited. Free calling refers only to internet calling, and requires that you provide your own internet access.

Well i haven tried it out yet, so can’t give any comments out of it, but still you can get your copy of Yahoo! Messenger at here.

Firefox Tweaks!

Posted on May 2005 at about 12:00 AM by hwa

Ok yesterday i just format my PC, so have to install all the softwares and reconfigure everything, including my Firefox. 🙁 So i went Google and search for the tweak that available on net, and here’s what i found, want to share with you all and at the same time i wouldn’t need to search again next time if i format my PC.

Follow these steps below.

Step 1:
First of all you need to create user.js in the profile folder, for Windows XP/2000 user most probably it’s located in the following path.

C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\default.xxx

And Windows 95/98/ME it’s at here.

C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\default.xxx

For Linux OS you may find it here.

~/.mozilla/firefox/default.xxx/.

And here’s for MacOS X.

~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/default.xxx/.

Where xxx is a random string of 3 characters.

Step 2:
After creating your user.js, open user.js and paste the following codes.

/* Speed Tweak */
user_pref(“network.http.pipelining”, true);
user_pref(“network.http.proxy.pipelining”, true);
user_pref(“network.http.pipelining.maxrequests”, 100);
user_pref(“network.http.max-connections”, 48);
user_pref(“network.http.max-connections-per-server”, 16);
user_pref(“network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy”, 16 );
user_pref(“network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server”, 8);
user_pref(“network.dns.disableIPv6”, true);

user_pref(“content.interrupt.parsing”, true);
user_pref(“content.max.tokenizing.time”, 2250000);
user_pref(“content.maxtextrun”, 8191);
user_pref(“content.notify.backoffcount”, 5);
user_pref(“content.notify.interval”, 750000);
user_pref(“content.notify.ontimer”, true);
user_pref(“content.switch.threshold”, 750000);

user_pref(“browser.cache.memory.capacity”, 65536);
user_pref(“browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl”, true);
user_pref(“browser.xul.error_pages.enabled”, true);

user_pref(“plugin.expose_full_path”, true);
user_pref(“ui.submenuDelay”, 0);
user_pref(“nglayout.initialpaint.delay”, 0);
user_pref(“signed.applets.codebase_principal_support”, true);

As for the prefetch tweak.

Step 1:
Right click on your Firefox shortcut icon then choose Properties, at the target there you will see this line.

“C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe”

Step 2:
Now add “/prefetch:1” behind the line and make it looks like the one below.

“C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” /prefetch:1

This will make your Firefox start much faster. What happen here is actually by default Firefox takes up more RAM than Internet Explorer, but if you prefetch Firefox, Windows will keep Firefox in memory so it will load faster next time you startup Firefox, so this mean you need to run Firefox at least once to prefetch it, then it is faster until you reboot again.

Many of you may ask why Firefox isn’t configured like this by default? Well you can find your answer at here.

Good Bye Holiday…

Posted on May 2005 at about 3:29 AM by hwa

Well! Tomorrow i will going back to KL! Er… should say later in the evening, it’s 2.50AM already. 😆 And this mean that my holiday is going to finish, only few days left. 😥

This holiday can say not as bad as last time, at least i don’t have to spend it all alone. I mean i make some new friends, three of them totally, they are nice, giving me a really precious memories. Many thing have happened, funny, laughter, joy… All the good thing are packed together and shared each one of us.

For me i have a weird thought that i think there’s no “Friendship Forever” such thing. Friends come and go, those who you consider as “Best Friend” will soon become just “friend”. 🙁

But don’t you people think the same? I mean, when we go to primary school, we make new friends. Then when go into secondary, some of our friends go other place, we lost them, then we make another new one. The same thing will happen when we continue our journey.

Darn!! Feeling so heavy now, been such a long time since i have this kind of feeling, i hate it. 😥

Wish you luck my friends, all the best… 🙂
