The new Chatheads feature of Facebook Messenger (Android) is cool but the engineers at Facebook are cold enough to use Helvetica Neue — being a typeface that does not support Unicode characters (like Tiếng Việt). So I recompiled the app using Google’s own Roboto for good.
Download and enjoy: Facebook Messenger with Unicode support.
Inspired by this article, I try a couple search queries with DuckDuckGo and it’s love at first sight. I added the Search Add-on to Firefox and even twist Firefox’s about:config a bit to enable DuckDuckGo searching on-the-fly just wih my Adress bar.
Add to Firefox [X]
1. Click this link to open the Firefox add-ons site (in a new tab).
2. Click the Add to Firefox green button on the page that comes up.
3. To add to the address bar, type about:config into the address bar.
4. Then search for keyword.url and change it to https://duckduckgo.com/?q=
Why do I love DuckDuckGo? Because it’s so much fun to use and so incovenient to do a specially targeted query. It’s “bang” support make me feel good — the kind of feeling you get as programmer using some good programmed tool searching for some programming stuff.
Have a look and see.
For the last several days I got stuck in an annoying situation that I have to re-enter my account info (username and password) for every single website I use (about 10 I guess). For some reasons it seems that my newly-upgraded Firefox 3.5 Preview would not save any cookies at all.
So I did a little research the reason turned out to be some corrupted file called cookies.sqlite. All you have to do is to seek and destroy it. That’s all! (And by saying “destroy” I didn’t mean that you have to actually chop its head down or something, just delete it — even to the recycle bin is OK.) The file can often be found at your %appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ and in a folder named whatever.default.
Hope this is helpful if you have the same bug with Firefox.
I just can’t breathe during one and a half hour watching this coverage of Google Wave keynote address.
After watching Microsoft’s Glimpse into the future and this video, I pretty much believe that most of the triumphs in human’s history come not from these political systems or those (inter)national leaders — but from all the people with great mind of knowledge and keen sense of innovation.
It’s the technology from those people that changes the world.
Yes it is. Get it here to have this cool thing like that in my screenshots.
