Showing the Yahoo homepage with ads enabled, so it’s a little slow. Slashdot is mostly text so it loads and scrolls quickly. Wisebread is a site that uses scripts & ads that give me slow load times on older computers unless NoScript is used. TV Guide site loads fast because scripts are blocked, you can see the TV Listings window is empty at the end. Allowing java would add about 20 seconds, then scrolling the listings is fine.
Quick vid to show off my new laptop computer. It’s a Serval Professional from System76, and came preloaded with Ubuntu 9.04. I opted for the higher resolution matte display. Video shot with a cheap digital still camera, it looks really sharp in person.
This bird repeatedly flies into a window. It was doing this every morning, so one day I recorded it on a digital camera. Sorry about this annoying clicking noise, this camera does not do video very well. I don’t know if the bird is trying to get inside or is trying to get it’s feet on the window somehow. Weird.
This was my first ever video on YouTube! I remember that clicking noise – it was the autofocus kicking in. That camera really wasn’t made for video.
