VMWare Fusion 2 beta

August 25, 2008

I have just tried VMware Fusion beta 2. It’s a free download at the moment. I can now run XP Pro and connect to my office network and run Office. I wasn’t able to do this before this beta version.

The dual monitor (or multiple monitors) feature is not as easy as advertised. I couldn’t yet set all desktop on both monitors to show Windows but it’s working after all in unity mode.

I have yet to run it for a prolonged period to see if it’s practically usable.

Apple Juice Theme

August 22, 2008

This is Apple Juice Theme 0.5 that you are seeing. Again I have added some round corners this time using another technique called jQuery-Roundcorners-Canvas. This is a lot easier, tidier in the codes, compare to nesting DIVs as in my earlier attempt in Roundbox.

Next improvement I wanna try is Hover Accordion which requires no click to expand a menu on the sidebar.

iMovie doesn't like Disney

August 14, 2008

It is just that iMovie doesn’t like my shots taken at Disney. Other tapes are all OK whenever it comes to those taken at Disney the CPU load will increase as well as RAM used.

The CPU was getting hot and the fan worked very hard as well

It crashed again and on restarting it looks OK again

For other tapes it looked like this while importing, there were CPU load spikes but overall the RAM used was very stable.

I think it may be a sticky tapes that caused the problem.
