Firefox Tips for Speed & Performance

Speed up Firefox. If you have a broadband connection (and most of us do), you can use pipelining to speed up your page loads. This allows Firefox to load multiple things on a page at once, instead of one at a time (by default, it’s optimized for dialup connections). Here’s how:

- Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit enter. Type “network.http” in the filter field, and change the following settings (double-click on them to change them):
- Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”
- Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”
- Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to a number like 30. This will allow it to make 30 requests at once.
- Also, right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0″. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

Limit RAM usage. If Firefox takes up too much memory on your computer, you can limit the amount of RAM it is allowed to us. Again, go to about:config, filter “browser.cache” and select “browser.cache.disk.capacity”. It’s set to 50000, but you can lower it, depending on how much memory you have. Try 15000 if you have between 512MB and 1GB ram.

Reduce RAM usage further for when Firefox is minimized. This setting will move Firefox to your hard drive when you minimize it, taking up much less memory. And there is no noticeable difference in speed when you restore Firefox, so it’s definitely worth a go. Again, go to about:config, right-click anywhere and select New-> Boolean. Name it “config.trim_on_minimize” and set it to TRUE. You have to restart Firefox for these settings to take effect.

Windows XP Key Macros with HotKeyBind

Hot Key Bind is an amazing application for key macros. you can use hot key bind to launch a file, application, or even a specific web site. I find it very useful and easy to use. I think that everybody should use keyboard shortcuts.


Apple Updates the All in one IMac

So just as of recent the Apple store went down and being the geeks we are most jumped at the new I-Mac's conclusion and boy were they right. The All in one i-macs have been upgraded just as the macbook and macbook pro with the "Penryn" Intel Core 2 duo processor. This and a new Nvidia Geforce 8800 GS with 512 MB of Vram has been added to the 24 inch model which now runs at 3.06GHZ! and prices at 2,119$. As of design changes there still the same dazzling i-macs just beefed up hardware and faster specs, mainly these penyryns are the big hit to the i-macs which will show speed increases in overall system and application speeds. The models still stand at two 20 inch models with 2.2 & 2.4 GHZ and now two 24 inch models at 2.8GHZ & the new 3.06GHZ with the new feature of the nvidia card to the apple store. A elegant machine now taken to the next level and with this in mind and with the whole penryn processor migration we're surely hoping to see the future macs such as mini, and possibly the air with these new speedy processor models. So i'll end it with that and a major props to apple on the update and with WWDC coming up who knows whats next....

Search Me!

Ever wanted a fancy alternative to google or Yahoo? Well now there is! Search me! Search Me is a search engine just like google but search me has something that sets it apart from the rest of them. What is that, Cover Flow. Thats right Search me displays the page of the site ur looking in cover flow. It works on Mac, PC, and Linux. It is still in beta but it is still very interesting to use. I think that in the future this site might catch on and some might make it their default search engine over google.

KGB Archive - File Compression

Have you ever had a large file that you wanted to send to someone over the internet and i was going to take days to send, or have you ever wanted to put a large file on a small flash drive? Well now you can with KGB Archive. KGB Archive is very a very strong piece of software. You can choose between lower, low, average, good, extreme, and monumental compression seatings. My results are amazing. I Archived a 2.5Gb .iso file down to 200Mb. The major downside is the time it takes to compress a file. It took me 35 Hours to compress that file on extreme compression and I'm using a 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo. I would definitely recommend a dual core for this application.

KGB Archive can be downloaded here - http://www.kgbarchiver.net/?page=download

Tech-Upgrade Plans: Gear

New Gear to come

So it's time to upgrade some gear and sell older gear , some stuff i have to sell include


With that said i do have some gear that needs upgrading either cause of broken hardware or just to upgrade for a geeks sake =)

First off my headset
-Logitech Premium Headset
has a fault cause i can't hear out of the left set so i'm needing to upgrade for better audio quality and another mic

I'm thinking of upgrading to a logitech ultra clear usb headset
that costs around 35 $

this will help alot with the podcast and another thing i'm looking to add to the collection will be a
Podcasting Mic

thinking the samsung roadster models with a base station kit etc for the itunes podcast etc.

So as you use alot of audio gear will be needed for the show and videos

Now moving out of the audio department and into the video -SOFTWARE is something importantly needed primarily ADOBE software including

-After Effects

Only thing is these Software cost a ton so i'll have to look around for special deals on the net coupons,etc.

As you see alot of stuff is needed and theres more of course but i'll get into that later on in my other blogs if you want to help out at all by donating equipment or money it'll be done via - Paypal

Email Me at kidgurucenter@gmail.com if your intrested in helping out

Thanks for reading
