9/1     THE GOOG had Scott McCloud do a comic explaining why THE GOOG Chrome
        (their open-source webbrowser) is cool.  I don't really think it worked
        http://blogoscoped.com/google-chrome
        \_ Oh boy, it comes with porn mode!
        \_ Oh boy, it comes with a porn hider feature!
           http://blogoscoped.com/google-chrome/22
        \_ Is it 1993? GOOG's killer app is a *browser*?
           \_ No. Google's killer app is called "g docs" (writely acquisition)
           \_ No. THE GOOG's killer app is called "g docs"
              (writely acquisition)
           \_ No. THE GOOG's killer app is called "g docs" (writely acquisition)
              which is increasing used as a cheap collaborative alternative
              to MS Excel/Word/PowerPoint. Chrome is just a vehicle (v8)
              for a more pleasant link:docs.google.com experience. Again,
              it is not a replacement for MS products, but rather, a superior
              *collaborative* alternative. If you need explanation what
              that means, you're behind.
              \_ So why didn't they work within firefox to do that?
                 Trying to fragment the browser market even further makes
                 no sense and puts Google in the wrong market.
                 no sense and puts THE GOOG in the wrong market.
                 \_ I'm not sure about that, maybe it's just a beta test idea.
                    The low level design is pretty different than what Mozilla
                    is currently doing, maybe they just want to see if it works
                    better.
              \_ who in their right mind would put anything in google docs
                that is important?
                 \_ Every single one of internal Google document is stored
                 \_ Every single one of internal THE GOOG document is stored
                    on the same homogenous redundant storage system as the
                    one everyone else externally is using. So if the storage
                    system is down, so are all the internal employee
                    documents. Yeah, Google's done by a bunch of idiots,
                    documents. Yeah, THE GOOG's done by a bunch of idiots,
                    they should've just used NFS or something ehhhh???
                    \_ I cannot understand what you are trying to say, ehhhh?
        \_ I've downloaded it and tried it out.  It seems fairly nice and
           responsive.  I wish the tabs were in the usual place though. -op

8/29    There was once a CSUA web page which runs an SSH client for logging
        on to soda.  Does that page still exist?  Can someone remind me of the
        URL please?  Thx.
        \_ what do you mean? instruction on how to ssh into soda?
           \_ No I think he means the ssh applet, which, iirc, was an applet
              that implemented an ssh v1 client.  I think this page went away

8/16    Why does my Y! mail account always full of unfiltered spam
        mails (and they're obviously spams)? Why can't they do
        a better job like Google mail? Why does Y! mail charge
        for exporting email? Google mail doesn't do that.
