P2P sharing in Firefox

This is certainly something that will strike panic in the hearts of IT managers and security czars across the enterprise… peer-to-peer file sharing within a Firefox extension.

SAP is such a great software that initially there weren’t any errors. But in order to have any work to do at all, they made up some bugs

How Many Lightbulbs Does it Take to Change the World? One. And You’re Looking At It.

The quote below is a reminder that “being green” and reducing energy consumption doesn’t have to come from grand plans and painful economic consequences… it can literally be as simple as changing one lightbulb. What’s really fascinating in this article is the fact that Wal-Mart is behind this movement to convert everyone to CFL bulbs, not because of simple economic reasons associated with selling more products, but becuase it saves their customers money.

How Many Lightbulbs Does it Take to Change the World? One. And You’re Looking At It.

What that means is that if every one of 110 million American households bought just one ice-cream-cone bulb, took it home, and screwed it in the place of an ordinary 60-watt bulb, the energy saved would be enough to power a city of 1.5 million people. One bulb swapped out, enough electricity saved to power all the homes in Delaware and Rhode Island. In terms of oil not burned, or greenhouse gases not exhausted into the atmosphere, one bulb is equivalent to taking 1.3 million cars off the roads.
