I was recently reading the headlines of Google News Sci/Tech and I thought about how terabyte hard drives will come sooner than I thought.

I realized this when thinking about HD DVD and Bluray. Since Hi Def is the must have of today I would expect to see more terabyte hard drives soon.

A 60GB hard drive can only hold about 14 hours of DVD quality video and about 5 hours of HD quality.

Opera Browser = Amazin'!!!


I just downloaded the Opera Browser for my Windows Mobile 5 PPC - 6700. I am amazed by how fast and intuitive the software is.

I normally use the WM5 version of Internet Explorer (IE) and have been let down by Mozilla's Mini browser, Minimo. Minimo had the right idea of tabbed browsing and cool buttons. But when I went to a site that Minimo did not like it would randomly close and I would have to start all over again. Also the program ran very slow for a PPC with a 416Mhz processor and 64 MB of RAM.

IE also sucks (not as much as Minimo) since it too does not like certain sites and sometimes freezes.

My device is old but was ahead of its time when it was released (early 2006).

Conclusion: Opera Browser>IE>Minimo.

(Sorry Mozilla, I still love you for your Firefox and Thunderbird)

New stuff

I have not posted in a while. Wow!

A few months ago I was behind a mediocre car that had a purple bumper sticker that said, "Jesus is the Answer." This person was about to turn right to get onto the 101 and head South. When I was sitting patiencently, I noticed that she was smoking and as she was turning she littered her cigarette butt. I honked at her and thought about how her lord and savior Jesus H. Christ would be unhappy.

**Side note (Jesus' middle name = Horace?)

I still have been going to research meetings with Jeff Hester for researching star formation. I am still not being paid. I had my parents fill out the FAFSA to get paid for a work study job. I am also waiting for another key to the workroom since the first key that they gave me did not work.

I will try to post more frequently.
