Haven't too much time in my hands to try workspaces.
After one of my pet project didn't succeed when I was in college, I lost my confidence to make another personal project.
Now I'm trying to move on that's why I'm here in CP.
Don't mind those people who say you're not HOT. At least you know you're COOL.
I'm not afraid of falling, I'm afraid of the sudden stop at the end of the fall! - Richard Andrew x64
It is a sacred object from Ulurus. It is used in courtship rituals by unmarried girls born on the winter solstice and it is said that anyone that who allows sunlight to fall on it will never be able to ripen marrows.
"The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts." - Bertrand Russell

Those who know me may be surprised to hear that I quite enjoy going on to some Facebook pages to engage in exchanges of views with people whom I don't agree with. However, it's killing my limited monthly bandwidth . Just leaving Facebook open, consumes 100 MB an hour. I assume that means there's a ton of AJAX calls running chat, and the 'what's going on' thing on the right. I have installed an ad blocker, but, does anyone know of any Chrome add ins or other ways to make Facebook not update itself dynamically and just show me the page I loaded ? I realise I'll probably lose tagging as a result.
And therein lies the error of your ways, my good man!
I use FB (everyday) to connect with friends and share the odd mildly interesting technical link, but close the browser tab when I'm done. I'm on FB about 5-10 minutes a day max and don't think it makes a dent in my monthly bandwidth allowance.
Well, that's fine, but, if you're using it to enter in to detailed discussion, you will find yourself having it open for long periods just because you're typing, or going back to it to reply ( especially as FB won't send you notification emails if you get a reply from a stranger ). In many ways, the forums there are a bit like web forums in 2002.
