Protopage v2.0 released

Yesterday I received a mail from Protopage which informed me of the release of Protopage Version 2.0

ProtopageI had been using Protopage as my web Desktop until I switched over to Windows Live and had found it really easy to use and pretty exciting even with its then limited options for sticky notes, to-dolists, favorite links and quick searches. The best part about it was that it allowed me to create panels that could be understood as HTML. So I could easily add forms, for example, to log into my University Mail Account, something which I found extremely useful

As expected, version 2.0 has now more features that make it even better. There is support for multiple pages, with individual page sharing options along with more customizations, more colour schemes and rich text editing for sticky notes. All the new features are explained in detail at the Protopage News Blog.

However, the only place they lose out is extensibility and add-ons. Protopage has no option for third party developers built cool add-ons like the numerous widgets at Microsoft Gadgets for Windows Live. (The last time I had checked, the number of available gadgets had reached 94.)

Startups for a stronger Resume?

When the whole web is abuzz with keywords such as Ajax, Web 2.0, Meebo and all, there is some uncertainity about how this new Internet Bubble will shape up.

Mike at Techdirt writes that some of these new startups may be only to actually stand out for the crowd and act as a strong resume.

While the complaint is that so many of these companies are built to flip rather than to be sustainable businesses, some are noticing that this process is really just a better way for some to stand out and get a job. You build a company quickly and cheaply that gets some attention, and a bigger company comes along to scoop up your company, giving you a nice "signing bonus." In effect, the purpose of these companies is to act as a strong resume to stand out from the crowd.

Pottermania

I'll have to admit that the nature of Pottermania is beyond my comprehension capabilities! As more and more fans of all ages and countries immerse themselves in Harry’s adventures, adding fuel to the belief that Pottermania is inescapable, I am purely and simply baffled by its ability to appeal to all ages.

Bored by the inactivity prevailing in this muggle world, I began to read the first one of the series and immediately concluded that reading beyond the tenth leaf was something impossible. Undeterred, I watched the first movie. I Hated it. But with the evil-wizard becoming apple of more and more eyes with every passing moment, around the world, it could only have been something wrong with me and so I watched the second movie. And then it became so easy to establish that I loathed the Potter Kid!

Just a passing thought - "Would it be a bad idea for a Potter special appearance in Oliver Twist? The poor kid could do with some wizardry."

Gmail Chat Disabled

The fact that it happened does not surprise me but that it took so long for our network administrators to figure it out does.

And if you are wondering how do you disable Gmail's chat features on your network, you only need locking DNS lookups to chatenabled.mail.google.com, by returning 127.0.0.1.
