I personally use #3, Tab Scope and #5, Download Status Bar.

I found the effect on #8 cool but the redraw was slow.

Major Brian Shul: "I loved that jet" 
Wednesday, March 26, 2008, 03:56 PM - techFoo

I was piloting the SR-71 spy plane, the world's fastest jet, accompanied by Maj Walter Watson, the aircraft's reconnaissance systems officer (RSO). We had crossed into Libya and were approaching our final turn over the bleak desert landscape when Walter informed me that he was receiving missile launch signals. I quickly increased our speed, calculating the time it would take for the weapons-most likely SA-2 and SA-4 surface-to-air missiles capable of Mach 5 - to reach our altitude. I estimated that we could beat the rocket-powered missiles to the turn and stayed our course, betting our lives on the plane's performance.

After several agonizingly long seconds, we made the turn and blasted toward the Mediterranean. 'You might want to pull it back,' Walter suggested. It was then that I noticed I still had the throttles full forward. The plane was flying a mile every 1.6 seconds, well above our Mach 3.2 limit. It was the fastest we would ever fly. I pulled the throttles to idle just south of Sicily, but we still overran the refueling tanker awaiting us over Gibraltar.

To fly that aircraft must have been a dream.

A serious* review of cooling options from no less an authority than Tom's Hardware.

*Serious, as in real; actual; grave. Not the slang serious

I haven't read it yet, but I'm salvating at the prospect of a new Firefly novel. Hats off to Steven Brust for the effort.
Now, go read it!

InfoWorld: HELP SAVE XP Petition 
Thursday, February 7, 2008, 07:44 AM - techFoo
Now here is a petition worth signing.

Please complete this petition so we can add your name to those who want Microsoft to keep Windows XP available indefinitely, rather than force users to upgrade to Windows Vista. With your support, we can convince Microsoft to spare XP’s fate of being discontinued on June 30, 2008.

I, for one, would welcome our .. errr... old overlords ...back.
