Really cheap RC helicopter

When I first saw one of these remote controlled miniature helicopters on the Internet, I knew I had to get one. I started looking everywhere, but places such as play.com and amazon.co.uk, where the toys were affordable, wouldn’t ship electronics to Finland.

Later I somehow managed to convince myself that amazon.de didn’t ask too much – around 25 euro plus postage and other handling fees. That’s like less than two hours at work… :-)

DCCP CCID 4 for Linux

Browser wars

16 Jul 2007 21:02:50 software

Not all web browsers are created equal. Apart from different user interfaces, they may or may not share a common rendering engine. The engine matters. The engines differ in performance (as in rendering speed, or CPU resources), stadnard compliancy, features (e.g. CSS, JavaScript), and memory usage. This is short, subjective comparison of a few.
