New stuff

I’ve been trying new stuff right now. You may find these interesting:

Here’s a new kid on the Instant Messenger block. Google Talk, as I’ve expected released their own IM client. I’ve tested it and so far, I don’t see any point of moving from Yahoo. The feature that it brags about — IP calling — are all in the latest Yahoo IM client. Unless they release an innovative tool that makes real difference like Gmail, I don’t think people will think of switching. For now, I’ll uninstall it lest I’ll add another application that eats my PC memory

I successfully installed IPCop as our Firewall. So far so good. Thanks to Jim of FEBC for bringing this linux-based firewall to my attention.

Planning to get this device for time recording.
