Firefox 0.9

16 06 2004

Firefox 0.9 is here. Installed it and seem to work good. The only problem I saw was it failed to load the real pluggin with this error.

nram@shrek ~ $ LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /usr/lib/RealPlayer8/rpnp.so [/usr/lib/RealPlayer8/rpnp.so: undefined symbol: __pure_virtual]

Installed plugger (5.1.2) and got rid of the real pluggin and things work ok.

Installed few extensions:

Googlebar

Add here (bookmarks)

Bookmarks tree

Browser uptime

Close Tab on double click

and few themes.

Sony SDM-S204 Monitor

1 06 2004

Got this almost for free after using Sony Mastercard points. (Amazon – $680).

Plus:
Sleak
almost real black background
Great text quality.
I can play video/DVD with no noticible response issue. But some sites say there is a problem. Perhaps, gamers would see that.
Has 1 DVI and two analog inputs.

Minus:
Bulky
Pricy
Not tiltable
Not great response time (atleast on paper)
No extras (speaker, USB port)
