I've been using Author-It v126.96.36.19963 to generate help in Japanese. This seemed to work fine, but the resultant chm file's Search tab wouldn't work with Japanese glyphs (only with English characters).

I've finally bitten the bullet and upgraded the OS that come with my eeePC 701 netbook. Things were starting to run slowly, and in particular firefox kept freezing when running ajaxy websites (such as gmail).

Read on to find out about the changes I made, and the resources I used to get there.
Facebook does have a limited number of RSS feeds. My new mobile phone allows me to subscribe to up to two web feeds for each of my contacts. Here are the steps I had to go through to get an RSS feed for one friend's status update. (Genuine first-hand research/trial and error.)
I've just got a new mobile phone on a cheaper tariff. I have stayed with Orange, since they were (more or less) able to match a cheaper deal I'd seen. However, having just gone through the process of switching sim cards and handsets, I'd like to record three distinct processes that should all be the same (but aren't): what is says in the box, what they say on the phone, and what happens in real life!
Some thoughts on book cover design, particularly regarding colours.
