As this awesome TV show comes to an end, it’s cool to remember some of the old patients and thus old episodes House had.
But I suppose these are just the famous patients that were in the show and not the best episodes. As I recall, “All In” was a really good episode, as well as the “Last Resort” episode that’s already mentioned in the previous link. I guess, for me, what counts as a better episode is whether or not the episode has a good story that revolves mainly around a diagnostic with lots of medical terms flying around.
So maybe “intriguing” would be a suitable adjective for these episodes. Sure, fun and games and jokes are also an important part of every House episode – but they don’t make an episode as memorable as all the mind-boggling differential diagnoses scenes that a single episode offers.
Even though there are countless awesome jQuery plugins, not all of them visually enhances the page in a way that is meant for the end-user.
Here are some that I’ve found recently:
That’s all folks!
A quick search shows that some great deal of people are having this problem. And it included me, until now.
After being plagued by this very problem this evening (around 10 disconnects in a row), I decided to end this menace. Especially since I often had the same problem in the past.
So I was searching for a solution on the Internet, skipping very old or trivial ones (such as reinstalling MSN or deleting some roaming appdata folder of MSN Messenger), when I stumbled on a solution that worked for me.
So if you’re reading this and are having the same problem AND using AVG Antivirus, you can stop MSN Messenger from signing you out by simply disabling AVG’s “Instant Messaging protection” (located in Overview->Online Shield->Instant Messaging OR Tools->Advanced Settings->Online Shield->Instant Messaging). Optionally you can only disable MSN Protection.
I’ve put together a GitHub profile today and uploaded some Windows programming and DirectX 11 code that I’ve been working on recently. Also uploaded are an old Java project with a ME wrapper that implements Hangman and a collection of solutions to a few Project Euler problems that I wrote recently.
Good enough to listen to for the moment as a refreshment from all the classical music I’ve been listening to, until I get my old applications up and running. (reinstalled Win 7 yesterday, it was getting a little too cluttered) And maybe fix some decent playlist afterwards.
I have used this for a few days now, so I decided to share it.
Gmail has a plethora of different themes and color styles that you can choose from (through Settings -> Themes). Last week, Google added two new themes to this list as a sneak peek, which are called “Preview” and “Preview (Dense)”.
The new themes look pretty sleek. Here are some images from Gmail’s blog, showcasing the new theme.
After playing around with them a bit, I chose to have the dense version of the new theme since it is a lot more compact. Which allows you to see more stuff at the same time.
Did you like the new themes? Or which other theme do you prefer?
Last.fm is great. It is a music website that allows you to scrobble your played tracks in various music players either with the music player itself or by a plugin. This enables you to check which songs you’ve previously listened to and see various charts after some time.
I have scrobbled in Last.fm for exactly 1800 days today (4 years, 11 months and 4 days, not including today). Even though I wasn’t able to scrobble the tracks I’ve listened to with my portable music player, I scrobbled over 84 thousand tracks that I listened to using my computers. And now, the time for some statistics has arrived. Or, you know, a list of 10 songs. For starters.
This is pretty fun, the friendly walrus people on GrooveWalrus’ website featured the review I wrote today about exporting Spotify playlists to GrooveWalrus and another review I wrote earlier about GrooveWalrus’ features in general on their website. Here’s what they wrote:

Another exceptionally intelligent GrooveWalrus user wrote couple of nice articles introducing you to GrooveWalrus. The first offers a general introduction to GrooveWalrus, the second details GrooveWalrus’ mysterious ‘list sifting’ capabilities. Check them out:
I can only hope that they weren’t being sarcastic.
Also, as a bonus, I’ve uploaded the current revision of my Spotify-exported GrooveWalrus playlist to Google Docs as I did before with a playlist around 150 songs. This time however it’s a playlist of over 2000 hand-picked songs. Awesome. Assuming you have similar music taste.
GrooveWalrus is a great streaming music player application that plays songs through Grooveshark and Last.fm. It also offers lots of Last.fm features since it has a great deal of Last.fm integration. I wrote a review for GrooveWalrus before which you can read here.
To compare, GrooveWalrus is a great alternative to Spotify (since it is ad-free) and a great alternative to the Grooveshark website or Wingrooves (which is basicly the same thing as Grooveshark, except on your desktop) since they are both image-heavy and use 2-3 times more memory. They also have ads that ruin the experience, and take a lot of desktop or browser tab space.
Now, more to the point. Since I started using GrooveWalrus I had trouble to export my Spotify playlist to the application. Naturally, GrooveWalrus can import Grooveshark playlists. So if I exported my Spotify playlists to Grooveshark using Groovylists, I would be able to export them to GrooveWalrus with a flash. However the problem is two-fold.
Keeping these in mind, I held off trying to export my Spotify playlist to GrooveWalrus for a couple of weeks. However, after a while, it became pretty boring to listen to the 150+ song list I created in GrooveWalrus (by copying Last.fm recent tracks from inside GrooveWalrus, which is a really fast way to populate your GrooveWalrus playlists)
So today I tried to find another way to export a Spotify playlist to GrooveWalrus, especially my huge 1500 song list. And I came up with an excellent way using the GrooveWalrus List Sifter. Here are the steps you should take to export your playlist to GrooveWalrus:
Another method you can use as a last-ditch for such purposes is to capture the text by other means, when you can’t just copy and paste the text. You can use the application Capture Text to capture a screen part where your playlist resides and it will automatically transform the screen area into a text file.
Grooveshark + Last.fm = Love
