Make Firefox Go Faster

Make Firefox Go Faster

1.Type about:config into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining

network.http.proxy.pipelining

network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set network.http.pipelining to true

Set network.http.proxy.pipelining to true

Set network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set its value to 0. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

set “browser.turbo.enabled” to “True”

restart Firefox.

Home Theatre Shopping

Home Theatre Shopping

Been thinking for the longest time to buy a DVD player (yes … I din even have one all this while) … so went on shopping today @ Suntec … went to Courts and saw this LG set that was going for $399 … I am definitely a “looker” more than a “speaker guy”, was going for small form factor above all … decided to test out the sound. The salesman played a R&B complidation CD … wah rao … it was super bad … so bad that for a min I was wondering if the song was a cover … I couldn’t valtrex buy online canada make out a single word from the lyrics. Tried the next track … J Lo sounded like Mia Lee … give up. At least the salesman was honest enough to tell me to forget about LG, they are just now sound system people.

went over to Harvey Norman … Whoopi! Sony 5.1 home theatre set going for $399 … original price $699 … tried out the sound … I was blown away … comes with a 5-disc changer, 108 watts per channel, 110-watt subwoofer … FANTASTIC!!! No brainer … this is gotto be my new toy.

They’ve Found Me!

They’ve Found Me!

After conveniently declaring that I’m no longer an active NSMen during the recent Singapore shares handout, Uncle Lee just realised that I can actually contribute to the Nation … in another way.

I have been invited to become a Cyber Warrior with the Infantry Training Institue. It’s an invitation! Not compulsory even … at least buy brand valtrex they din say that I MUST return the survey form. Apparently it’s like only if I’m good enough will I be selected … exact words were “be able to execute computer instructions fast and efficiently” … wah rao … go and run batch file issit?

Ponder ponder … should I go or should stay?
