I’m outdated

Being a coder, like me, gives you a feeling that you simply understand what’s going on in computers world. I have my Gentoo, I know how my net works, I know how my browser works, I know, understand how it all works, right?
Well, not anymore. Today I updated Azureus and I’m lost. I spend my time looking at some fascinating graphs of my swarm, and I’m lost. Really. I don’t know how it is possible that this group of people communicates in a trackless world.
I know that speed of my swarm is 1.2 MB/s with average 52 kB/s, that I have 370 contacts, 130 peers and 25 seeds but there is a lot more to read, and most of this is a black magic for me. So… I’m a lame

If you have some time, just check new Azureus and look at the swarm graphs and distribution statistics. 🙂


KFirefox – why, where, who and when?

Recently DesktopLinux published it’s 2004 Desktop Linux Market survey which confirms my feelings about current direction of Linux market.
First is overwhelming domination of Mozilla based products in the area where they exists. Thunderbird and Mozilla Mail have ~37% early beating Evolution and KMail. Firefox and Mozilla holds over 70% of browser market. And, both Thunderbird and Firefox were released in Q4 2004! We can easily predict that this numbers will grow in 2005. Some of my thoughts:


FunnyFox – spread the word

Hey! People! We did not finish yet with Firefox! – I love “Taste the difference” one. 🙂


Firefox 1.1 and 1.5 requests

Firefox 1.1:
+ Fast Back
+ Binary updates
+ Canvas
+ Better extension handling

Firefox 1.5
+ Dynamic theme change
+ Drag&Drop tab reorganization

+ – patches are ready

Not bad, hum? 🙂


It’s time to respond

After Firefox 1.0.3 release we were flooded by criticism from the press. In Poland almost every major newspaper noticed that “Firefox security is a myth”. I’m not sure how big percent of this was motivated by our major rival – all Microsoft related vortals wrote such article, and how much was made because in Poland people love to kick everyone – just to feel better.
