Netscape Navigator, once a dominant Web browser in early 90s, is in its final moments of silent. There will be no more official support for Netscape client products on March, 1, 2008. During the browser war, Navigator lost its battleground to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer in early 2006; but then its “cousin”, Firefox, becomes a main competitor to IE.

Don’t know whether Vista’s Disk Defragmenter is really working in the background…If it does, reaaaally slow. The interface for this new defrag tool is very simple, but you’re unable to determine the progress and estimated time while it’s running defrag. Kind of miss defragger in XP…



Remote Control Your Mac Using UltraVNC in Windows

February 17, 2008 at 11:09 pm | Posted in Apple | Leave a comment

Access your Mac is easier for OS X Tiger since it has built-in Apple Remote Desktop; however, you need to check LAN setting in VNC client otherwise the screen will hang, “Please wait, initial screen loading….”


The following is my step-by-step installations….:

1. In Mac, under System Preferences, click Sharing and enable Apple Remote Desktop.


2. Enable Apple Remote Desktop in Firewall


3. Check users who are allowed to access to your Mac, and create a password for screen login.


4. In UltraVNC Client in Windows, check LAN option in stead of Auto.


5. Enter the password that you created in Step 3.

I finally had to manually shut down the computer and reboot. Check here to see how to prevent this disastrous screen…
