Tweets for 2009-01-01

  • Stayed awake later than usual to finish watching “Santosh Subramaniyam” – it was that good 🙂 Paying for the late night now though … #
  • Need to clear out data from a partition so that I can try Windows 7 on dual-boot. Works fine on VMWare but that doesn’t tell the full story #
  • Mmm …. “mung ata” (mung beans) for breakfast on the start of a new year! That’s the way to go 🙂 (And no, I’m not being sarcastic …) #
  • Should I keep “Spore” or get rid of it? It turned out to be the most over-hyped game ever or I’ve just grown out of that sort of game …. #
  • Windows 7: under 10 minutes for file extraction and first reboot, 17 minutes to second reboot and logged in by 20 minutes. Pretty good 🙂 #
  • Oh yeah, Windows 7 discovered and connected to my Wi-Fi as soon as it started up – no driver issues. I don’t think Vista did that … #
  • OK, #Birdie installed and working fine under Windows 7. Not sure how much of my regular apps I’ll install under W7 though … #
  • Windows 7 has a built-in wallpaper manager, was that there in Vista? I don’t think I ever used it in Vista … #
  • OK, first item I dislike about Windows 7 (besides the new taskbar, which is horrible) is the default system tray implementation … #
  • Hmm … NIS 2009 installs fine under Windows 7 – I could have sworn that some people reported problesm with W7 and Norton … #
  • Ah, there’s a built-in Windows 7 troubleshooter which will check for multiple anti-virus running, more than one user logged-in etc. Good 🙂 #
  • Dang, my Chrome user data comes to around 537MB! What the heck is Chrome storing on my hard drive? #
  • Ugh, Chrome windows have a weird line through the left, bottom and right borders under Windows 7. Makes me want to go back to XP 😀 #
  • I like how the gadgets are implemented this time around in Windows 7. More OS X like but it doesn’t take up screen-real estate … #
  • Hmm … the vaunted troubleshooter does nothing for me with regards to device driver issues though it did dial down my screen brightness 🙂 #
  • “Burn After Reading” is such a pointless, annoying movie where I wanted all the characters to just die, die, die! 😀 #
