Saturday, September 13, 2008 online mind maps

I'm really liking - it's an online Flash app that lets me quickly create a mind map. It's faster, easier, and more flexible than FreeMind.


Remember when RAM cost $50 per MB?

Remember the days when RAM cost $50 per MB? I had 2MB on my 386 - it was slow.

My friend Nick had 8MB of RAM - I was so jealous. He could run Word 6.0 and, unlike me, he didn't have to wait for his words to appear on the screen after he typed.

A rich friend of ours had 32MB of RAM! That must have cost him $1600.

Nowadays 2000MB of RAM doesn't seem like enough.

KeePass tip: Auto-Type

Here's a tip for people who use the free KeePass password manager. You can enable a feature called Auto-Type that will fill in the username and password when you press a hotkey (Ctrl+Shift+A on Windows). It works by checking the window title, and it works for browsers and non-browser windows.

More info on the KeePass help page.

My bro's wedding dance

I'm pretty proud of my brother and his wife. This is their first wedding dance on July 19. It's one of those "surprise" wedding dances (you'll see what I mean), and it incorporates some traditional Filipino dance elements. They practiced each week for nine months.
