I donot mind completing a brief online survey conducted by Satmetrix Systems on behalf of Yahoo!
But, only providing “Case number”, “Property” and “Close date” doesnot help.
Provide “Case Text” !
If one has requested help twice in the last days, how does one know what is the case being referred to !
Also, I get a mail on 4th June with close date 6th June…
What is the hurry ? Provide more time !
The Robot Co-op: Numeric milestones : …100,000 unique goals (with at least one person still on it), the 100,000th of which was to only check email twice a day…

The 20th Basic Theosophy Course at The Singapore Lodge Theosophical Society has commenced yesterday.
We sometimes ask ourselves these and other questions which seem to have no answers.
Where do I come from?
Where do I go to after death?
What is the purpose of life?
Why am I less fortunate than others?
Is there true justice in this world?
I have read about most of the topics covered yesterday
One interesting point. Some people have felt pain in an arm/leg that has been amputated… Attend the course and find out Why !

777-200LR Flight Test Journal: Desert sunrise : …We’re putting WD001, the first 777-200LR, through a rigorous test program. It will culminate with certification from the FAA so Boeing can start delivering the planes to its customers and they can put the planes into revenue service…I took part in early engineering meetings when designs and specifications were being formed. That gave me the opportunity to take the information from those meetings back to our team of test pilots. In that way we’re able to give the program recommendation from the pilot’s perspective…
Boeing’s 7E7 Project Pushes PLM Boundaries : …The final assembly line included more than 10,000 parts. Boeing reports that using digital 3D models in the design phase helped reduce the number of changes, errors, and rework by more than 50%…

I realised that it is possible to open multiple home pages in tabs upon Firefox startup
separate the multiple URLs with the pipe sign – |
How come this is not listed on Firefox Help: Tips & Tricks
Many sites point to How to set up multiple homepages in Firefox. Who is the Robert mentioned in the post ?

Due to the important policy change of FTP to SFTP at TextDrive, I have not been able to edit in place using HTML-Kit as it only supports FTP
Atlast, I have found jEdit – Programmer’s Text Editor which satisfies my need of editing in place – albeit slow…
[Update on Sep 10 2005 in response to a comment : The FTP plugin plugs into jEdit’s virtual filesystem to allow transparent access to FTP servers…In addition, when running on Java 2 version 1.4, the FTP plugin can edit and browse files stored on SFTP servers…]
textpattern.com Support Forum / Text editors contains many options…
