Oh, yeah

There’s this excellent BBC documentary about Titan (the moon) and Huygens (you may remember the successful Huygens touchdown). If you’re a movie aficionado, pay attention to the music that accompanies many scenes. You may recognize some of them.

There’s a myth out there that you can’t run Disk Defrag and MediaPlayer at the same time. Or that you need at least 2 Gig to have MediaPlayer play smoothly. This is bullocks.

National Geographic has a great article about malaria and mosquitoes (more on malaria at the WHO).

I’m not sure if this one fits in this posting, but, remarkably, a couple of developers announced Sylph-Searcher, a program that promises fast searching through (Sylpheed) MH folders. Wait: the announcement was made in the Postgres developers mailing-list. Apparently, you can use a database to store all your important e-mails from within Sylpheed. This makes perfectly sense: I mean, do you remember your very first e-mail? 100 to 1 that you don’t have that one anymore and that you wished you saved it somewhere safely into a database.
