Linda historia de como recuperaron una notebook robada.

I am saddened to think of Xmarks (formerly Foxmarks) going under. Their announcement email explained the situation very nicely, however, and one can hardly fault them for calling it quits. They were never able to monetize the data they aggregated, and not enough people would be willing to pay a subscription fee now that all the browsers are providing sync themselves.

I've been their add-on since almost day one; at first they didn't even have a central server to provide the service, it was just an add-on that you could point to an ftp server of your choice. (You can still point it to an ftp or WebDAV server of your choice, so that is one way to keep using it, at least until browser updates break compatibility).

Actually, Foxmarks once got a stolen laptop returned to me. About a month after my house was burglarized, I noticed new bookmarks showing up in my browser on my other machines. The person who "acquired" my laptop never bothered to wipe and reinstall, or even to create a new user account. So every time he bookmarked a URL, Foxmarks would diligently sync it to my other computers. So, from my own machine, I edited all of the bookmarks to point to a redirect page on my server. Once my changes were synced back to my stolen laptop, I was able to record its IP address every time he used one of his bookmarks. I gave that to the police, and another month later they got my laptop back after subpoenaing his ISP to get his address.

So, Foxmarks has a special place in my heart.

Given you statement, why would you link to a document entitled Reevaluating Amdahl's Law []? Did you even read what you linked to? Here's an excerpt:
Our work to date shows that it is not an insurmountable task to extract very high efficiency from a massively-parallel ensemble, for the reasons presented here. We feel that it is important for the computing research community to overcome the "mental block" against massive parallelism imposed by a misuse of Amdahl's speedup formula; speedup should be measured by scaling the problem to the number of processors, not fixing problem size. We expect to extend our success to a broader range of applications and even larger values for N.

Strawberry Perl

Oh, I should caveat one thing. In order to develop perl scripts into a distributable, platform independent, one click executable, I've been using the PAR packager [] module for perl. Sometimes it produces slightly bloated .exe's (since it has to bring in all of the relevant code from any external modules and dependencies), but it seems to produce very stable executables on win32 systems.
AutoHotKey or AutoIt are better and they are free unlike Visual Basic.

Mod this up. I've used C++, Java, Perl, Ruby, vbscript, batch, and likely a few more to do this kind of thing in Windows over the years. For something this small I haven't found anything that beats AutoIt. It's so easy to learn and is fantastic for creating small, standalone executables with a GUI on Windows. This task is a perfect fit.

Particularmente en USA

"In 2005, Congress yielded to an eight-year, $100 million campaign bybanks to change personal bankruptcy law. In effect, the BankruptcyAbuse and Consumer Protection Act made it harder for individuals towipe away their debts under Chapter 7 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.More had to file under Chapter 13."..."Chapter 13 was preferable tothe banks because it doesn't wipe away debt. Individuals still had topay down some of their credit cards and loans. "

En los Emiratos Árabes Unidos, despúes de la explosión de la burbuja inmobiliaria, se han abandonado mas de 5 mil coches de lujo de todas las marcas. Son de inversores que al empezar a perder el dinero prefirieron llevarse lo que podían antes de ser intervenidos por lo gobiernos correspondientes. No solo son vehículos, sino auténticas mansiones y palacetes abandonados en un país en el que tu vecino tiene uno igual o mejor y no lo va a robar y porque si te pillan robando puedes terminar ahorcado.

Linda historia de Wikipedia:

“Just make them wait.” Everyone else in the world knows that no negotiation tactic is more useful with Americans, because no one places more value on time, no one has less patience when things slow down, and no one looks at their wristwatches more than Americans do. Edward T. Hall in his seminal writing[41] is best at explaining how the passage of time is viewed differently across cultures and how these differences most often hurt Americans. Even Americans try to manipulate time to their advantage, however. As a case in point, Solar Turbines Incorporated (a division of Caterpillar) once sold $34 million worth of industrial gas turbines and compressors for a Russian natural gas pipeline project. Both parties agreed that final negotiations would be held in a neutral location, the south of France. In previous negotiations, the Russians had been tough but reasonable. But in Nice, the Russians were not nice. They became tougher and, in fact, completely unreasonable, according to the Solar executives involved. It took a couple of discouraging days before the Americans diagnosed the problem, but once they did, a crucial call was made back to headquarters in San Diego. Why had the Russians turned so cold? They were enjoying the warm weather in Nice and weren’t interested in making a quick deal and heading back to Moscow! The call to California was the key event in this negotiation. Solar’s headquarters people in San Diego were sophisticated enough to allow their negotiators to take their time. From that point on, the routine of the negotiations changed to brief, 45-minute meetings in the mornings, with afternoons at the golf course, beach, or hotel, making calls and doing paperwork. Finally, during the fourth week, the Russians began to make concessions and to ask for longer meetings. Why? They could not go back to Moscow after four weeks on the Mediterranean without a signed contract. This strategic reversal of the time pressure yielded a wonderful contract for Solar.

How to install Windows on a SSD 4GB Asus 900A.

I found a quite complete Guide at

I found several problems following those steps. The differences that I found are:

1- I first boot with Ubuntu 9.04 that I install on my 4GB SDHC card following Ubuntu netbook remix instructions. I then boot Ubuntu and install gparted package. Then I use Gparted to create a 1.7GB FAT16 filesystem on the 4GB internat SSD (if I create a larger drive installation fails, don´t now why).
2- I then follow the instructions of the eeeguides. First I format a 1 or 2GB USB Flash (no larger to avoid going to fat32) with USB_PREP8, then I follow the BootSec instructions, finally I run PeToUSB.
3- Is very important that you have an original legal Windows XP CD. If you download and ilegal Windows XP from Internet, not only it is ilegal but it is also very likely that it won´t work (PeToUSB will report is not a valid Windows) since most of the Windows images out there have been enlighted and are criped on the crucial files that you need for this to work.
4- When you first boot from USB, you need to select option "1" TXT setup. You then install it on the 1.7GB FAT partition (you can reformat it if you want).
5- After the TXT install finished, you need to boot one more time from the USB flash and select option 2, graphical install. It will continue installing Windows and will ask for the serial. Finally, it will restart a second time, once again you need to boot from the USB flash and select Graphical install. After all this final boot finished, you can umount the USB and next time you reboot from the SSD it will work fine.
6- You will need to convert the FAT16 to NTFS (Google it, is very easy).
7- Finally you need to use partition magic to growth the 1.7GB NTFS to use the whole disk and you are done!

Happy installing.
