Apple’s Magic Mouse Now Running Properly Under Windows

As I've indicated earlier, I am a massive fan of Apple's Magic Mouse.  While it does carry a heavy price tag, I thought it was completely worth it.  But a sad draw-back was that under Windows (pecicially Boot Camp), the mouse only works as a standard 2 button mouse.

But thanks to a little hackery from Apple’s Bluetooth Update (located here) the Magic Mouses driver was extracted via WinRar resulting in a 32bit version and a 64bit version that you can install on any ordinary Windows PC that will enable all the scrolling ‘magic’ of the Magic Mouse.

Explore the Twitterverse with Mentionmap

I've just stumbled across a neat little web application which allows you to visually explore your Twitter network. It allows you to discover which people interact the most and what they're talking about, as well as traverse the Twitter-verse and finds links to people you might otherwise not have found. Think "six degrees of separation" for your Twitter followers.

The visualization runs right in your browser and displays data from the Twitter API.  According to the maker, Asterisq, it works like this:

I'm using them for about a year, 3-4 times daily. I've used some other brands before but they didn't work as well as those do. Buy cialis online! When you order drugs online from our shop you can be assured that you’re ordering the very best brand and generic medication from Canada.

Mentionmap loads each user's Twitter status updates (tweets) and finds the people and hashtags they talked about the most. The data is displayed using Constellation Framework, a graph visualization library for Actionscript.

In this data visualization, mentions become connections and discussions between multiple users emerge as clusters.

Clicking a user will display their network of mentions as well as details from their profile. You can also search for friends by typing their Twitter user-names into the search box.

Mentionmap - A Twitter Visualization

I think this visualization is really neat, and I'd really recommend you check it out and have a play.  I found it very interesting to see the relationships between the people I primarily converse with on Twitter.

FD Feedburner Plugin

The Feedburner Plugin redirects the main feed and optionally the comments feed to Feedburner.com. It does this seamlessly without the need to modify templates, setup new hidden feeds, modify .htaccess files, or asking users to migrate to a new feed. All existing feeds simply become Feedburner feeds seamlessly and transparently for all users. Just tell the plugin what your Feedburner feed URL is and you’re done.

If you used blogger, you no doubt integrated your feed with Feedburner, seeing as Google bought it and integrated it, as it adds some wonderful
functionality to your feed with the ‘Add to Del-ici-ous… Digg… Email…. Technorati’ etc, but also its AUTOMATIC pinging to different news services, and sites to tell them you have new content. It also splices in flickr, del-ici-ous or furl, it adds Google Adsense to your posts and so much more. So you will more than likely want to keep this and so it lets you redirect your wordpress feed to your own unique wordpress feed, therefore keeping the AUTOMATED updates and subscribers are none the wiser it is coming from a different blogging platform.

Just need to go into feedburner configuration under appearance to set the feeds and redirects (took me a while to find it, prob should have read
installation. ;o)

Windows 7 Freezes During Network File Copying

My workstation at work is a great little computer. It's running Windows 7 and its very reliable and does what I need it to do. However, periodically, usually during periods of large quanities of network traffic, it will freeze. No BSOD, no warning, just frozen.

After some googling, it seems that the on-board Atheros L1 Gigabit Ethernet adpater on the ASUS motherboard has a known issue with Windows Vista, and apparently Windows 7 as well:

How many users have made right decision? Viagra for sale without a prescription? Generic drugs are required to have the same active ingredient, strength, dosage form, and route of administration as the brand name product.

Install a new driver The problem may be especially prominent with the Atheros L1 Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T Controller used on ASUS p5k motherboards. This driver (FTP Link), intended for Windows Vista, has been reported to solve this issue under Windows 7 in a variety of cases.

I downloaded the driver from here, and installed it on top of the generic Windows driver for the NIC and not a single freeze or lock-up since.

If you have an ASUS P5K series motherboard, I highly recommend that you upgrade this driver (even if you're not having these problems as the performance seems better on these drivers).
