Firefox extension: Session Saver

It was december 2004 when I first said that "Firefox Rocks". And its still rocking. In this same post, I mentioned the need of "saving the last open windows on exit" feature that I so much loved in Opera. Finally there is an extension that does exactly what I want.

SessionSaver restores your browser -exactly- as you left it, every startup, every time. Not even a crash will phase it.

Though still in early phases, works pretty well. Make sure to install from the forum link that is given at the end of the page. Only issue is that I had to disable LiveHttpHeaders extension. I don't use that extension anyways.

Alonso is the new F1 champion

Ya I know I am always late in announcing news ... but the era of Michael Schumacher seems to come to an end. Alonso has become the youngest driver ever to become the F1 champion despite late but stiff competition from Raikkonen.
I wonder what Ashin would say on this.

Being Vulnerable

The game of bridge has this concept of vulnerability ... As soon as you win a game, you become vulnerable, so stakes for winning and losing the next game increase, i.e. you get more points if you win a subsequent game and you lose much more if you lose.
Life is more of an opposite ... here stakes go high when you lose something ... One big loss and you lose lots of confidence and every single subsequent loss, however small it might be, makes you lose even more confidence ... And then it starts reflecting in other stuff that is not related to the original loss.
I was taught in a soft skill training that emotions arising due to one issue shouldn't be taken out on something unrelated ... we may make ourselves strong enough to do that ... But though there may not be a direct impact, it certainly leaves me vulnerable.

iPod nano launched

Its amazing how fast things change ... Apple launched iPod nano today which is iPod mini + colour screen + photo storage + even smaller and slimmer + same price.

These guys have even removed the link to iPod mini from the website. I don't feel that proud anymore.

Proud owner of an iPod Mini

Ok .. late again in posting .. but VP engineering was on visit last week and he gifted a sleek iPod mini to every developer here. Thanks Bob :-)

Now I know why this is one of the most popular gadget in the planet. The design is sleek and sexy, the UI is amazingly intuitive and simple. And its integration with a computer using iTunes is amazingly cool ... I am impressed
