Journal Journal: Gmail Bug

I've discovered a problem with Google's Chat feature for users who have a high number users in their Google Chat - I have over 2500 entries in my address book. When the page is loaded after a successful login a script checks all the current/gmail users to check who is online, but with too many users the javascript in FireFox gets stuck in an 'endless' loop. The browser freezes within a number of seconds, which is not enough time to press the "standard without chat" selection at the bottom of

Journal Journal: Strangest thing...

... is that I started blogging in 1999. I was asked to write SimpleNews1, a news input system able to create short bulletins on the front (or "landing page") page, this for the portal of the ISP I was working for.

Journal Journal: Lost text in Journal message 2

I'll write some more once I have some time again, busy, busy... ;) All my friends I am reading your Journals, just not replying at the moment.

I was wondering, I had a discussion in somebodies Journal about my "I am become Shiva destroyer of worlds" sig, but damned google/Yahoo! doesn't return results for the discussion. It's passed out of my message history, but was in the beginning of 2005.

If you happen to remember/find it please post the link to me.

Journal Journal: What I got for Christmas 5

I can sum it up in two words, a lot. All the presents are good; I'll read all the books, wash with all the soap, play with all the toys and even wear all the socks and boxers. But the best present I got was from my father, who gave each of us the sight of a child in the third world. IOW he paid for an operation so they could see.

Journal Journal: Back from holiday, jobless & homeless.

So Im back from holiday/travels... Haven't had time to catch up on all the 6 months worth of /. posts. Started today...

If anybody knows of a cool job, I might need to take it I'm a little poor...

I've been evicted for being one month behind in my rent, even though I told them I would be back from holiday to pay it. They thought I'd skipped the country leaving thousands of euro's worth of computer gear in my appartment...

Journal Journal: Travel: Amsterdam to Khajuraho

Dear friends,

I know I should have posted far sooner, but with all the traveling about it was a little hard to find the time, in between all the fun, to complete more than a short mail to confirm I was alive. Now I have 3 hours for the Bus from Khajuraho to Satna to leave so I have time to send this mail.
