Copernic Desktop Search 2.0 Beta - Download

Copernic Desktop Search 2.0 Beta - Download
Today I downloaded and installed Copernic Desktop Search again. Windows Desktop Search takes long time to load and, what pisses me off, it keeps reindexing all 20,000 folders after it reaches 0. That kept my disks spinning since yesterday. Copernic has the best features again, so I'm gonna test it. WDS also did not properly update Thunderbird emails index.

TortoiseSVN - Miranda IM Forums

About TSVNCache, that is taking a lot of processor time during WDS indexing of my hard drives...

TortoiseSVN - Miranda IM Forums: "I am using tortoise SVN and I never found the way to do it :(

I always got the TSVNCache.exe running.

But one option I suggest you to uncheck is the
'Show overlay status icons recursively' in options Look and Feel -> Icon Overlays.

It slows down your computer ;)"

Nice filters(plugins) for Windows Desktop Search. I'm testing the later because Google is focusing on other stuff instead of improving the main purpose of Desktop Search application.

The Daily Telegraph | Best jobs data in 30 years
Living in a country where the official unemployment rate is around 40%, reading this is amazing. Australia's unemployment rate is below 5% and the people are still whining. I'm kinda wondering why am I still here.

Alen's CV
Finally I have sorted out another nice thing. Now I have my own domain that works properly. or
Both are forwarding requests properly, meaning that if you go to you will open the right page. does forwards properly only to the main site page but not to any subfolders. Now, this is nice. I can have my own CV url, or images url, instead of opening and then click cv, or images, etc.

Alen's Notes: October 2004

Alen's Notes: October 2004

Actually, I can't believe I'm using this since 2004. I've just been looking at some old, scanned images to upload to Flickr and it got me thinking how time flies. There's almost two years to this blog. Btw, this is not a "blog" blog but a history of my thoughts and deeds. I'm my own primary audience. :)
If you come by this blog please let me know. I don't believe anyone actually reads this.
