A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

Google Desktop Search 2.0 Beta

I have just downloaded the Google Desktop Search 2.0 Beta, I quite like it. I would like to be able to force it to index when not Idle, but thats the only complaint so far.

I am looking forward to being able to search for things amazingly quickly, I have held off from using others because they took up lots of resources on my pitifully weak machine. This one seems to be pretty good though.

I have installed an Adsense plugin to see how much revenue I don't get from this blog. ;)

I like the Gmail plugin that comes as standard, and the feed detection is really really good. It beats Internet Explorer (IE7 Beta 1) hands down. It shows a very simple outline of all the blog entries that I am interested in. It doesn't allow any aggregation of any sort, so it is more of a news bulletin system. Its pretty cool though.

I will post more opinions once I have played with it a bit more.
