IE Developer Channel

Checking out Microsoft’s latest work with it’s new IE Developer Channel.  Good to see, and from the brief time I had with it this morning, I liked what I saw.  Far from it becoming my main browser, but like “living on the edge”.

Late to the SSD party

SSD-Drive-icon I drug my feet on this one a bit, but finally last week I upgraded my work, personal and son’s rigs to use SSD’s (for the OS and certain apps for now).  I knew there was a performance jump, but surprised by how much.  Why the wait, mainly because I knew it would require a lot of moving of files, re-installs (I could clone, but a fresh install never hurts and most of the main apps/media are on HDDs that are separate from the OS).  Next up, putting one in my 2011 Mac Mini, and see what new life I get from it.  Because sadly it’s an over glorified NetFlix viewer right now.  Oh and I went with the Crucial M500 line, and quite pleased with them.  I will try the Samsung 840 series next for comparison.
