  9. Show broken images in Firefox

    Published on

    Firefox is so “kind” to hide broken images or just displays the alt text without indicating that there should be an image. For regular visitors of your website that’s good, because you don’t want to be confronted with the red cross from MSIE. If y...

    Published on

    My FON Wifi router made Windows think it had a 150 Mbps connection. Pretty fast! Too bad the connection didn’t work and I had to reboot the FON router.

  15. Overpriced memory

    Published on

    Curious how much an upgrade of my iMac’s memory from 2×1 to 2×2 GB memory would cost I went to the online Apple store. Apple asks €140 for 2 GB of RAM. Thinking it would be a tiny bit overpriced I googled for other online stores and found out that...
