Solutions to Firefox using too much CPU on Ubuntu Linux

Contents: 

Tags: 

Ubuntu decided several months ago to forgo its policy of sticking with Firefox 3.6, and go with the latest versions from Mozilla.

With Firefox 13 running on Ubuntu 10.04, I had good performance, and did not suffer from this problem that I am about to describe. The only issue I faced was excessive disk activity and that was fixed by disabling the FireBug extension. Other than that, Firefox was speedy and responsive.

عن هواجس المؤامرات

هاجس المؤامرة يسيطر على قطاع عريض من مجتمعاتنا العربية و الاسلامية
فيرى الكثير منا ان أي حدث هو بتحريك أصابع خفية و ايادي خارجية
و هي اول فكرة تتبادر لأذهاننا عندما يحدث خطب جلل هو انه مخطط خارجي

مثلا ثورة مصر و غيرها من ثورات العرب
نقول انه مخطط تقسيم مصر المزعوم

و غير منطقي ان نفسر كل شئ بمؤامرة أولا، بل و نصر إصرارا عنيدا عليها بالرغم من ظهور أدلة على ان الثورات حدث تاريخي شعبي خالص

يجب ان لا نغفل عن ارادة البعض بنا السوء، و لكن في نفس الوقت لا يجب ان يكون ذلك هو أول تفسير، و لا التفسير الوحيد، في وجود تفاسير منطقية اخرى لها أدلة قوية

و لكي تكون النظرية التآمرية منطقية

سيطرة هاجس التآمر على الجهات الأمنية و صنع القرار في مصر بعد الثورة

كتبت في مواضع اخرى عن انتشار هواجس المؤامرات في الشعوب العربية و الاسلامية، و في مصر خاصة بعد الثورة

و قابلية العقل العربي المعاصر على اللجوء الى التفسير التآمري للاحداث بدون أدلة و لا قرائن و لا شواهد، ضار بشدة لمجتمعاتنا اشد الضرر

لانها تلهينا عن تقصي الاسباب الحقيقية للامور، و تجعلنا نطارد اشباح وهمية، و تشعرنا بالعجز و قلة الحيلة

و يبدو ان هاجس المؤامرة ليس مقصورا على الشعب، بل هو متجذر في الاجهزة الحكومية ايضا، بما فيها الاجهزة الامنية

مثلا المخابرات العامة و المخابرات الحربية و الامن القومي و الامن الوطني

Mobile network spectrum fragmentation means increased costs

Contents: 

Tags: 

Just what I have been saying all along.

Spectrum fragmentation means pricier mobile handsets, customer lock-in by carrier, and reduce the ability for global roaming.

This is mostly a USA/Canada problem only, since the rest of the world do not auction spectrum to specific networks.

Do you have a Sony Ericsson Xperia phone running Android? Such as the Xperia X10 or Xperia Arc? Is it slow and lags often?

We have a solution for you ...

But before we tell you, we have to explain why Sony Ericsson's Android can be slow. The reason is Timescape, Sony's user interface for Android phones. Even if you disable all the Timescape widgets from your home screens, it will still be running under the hood.

Arabic on Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc and X10 running Android

Tags: 

A very nice surprise from Sony Ericsson. Even though Android does not have full and official support for Arabic until Android 4.0, their handsets do have very good Arabic support by default, even handsets sold in the USA and Canada.

Arabic in Sony Ericsson Xperia Android phone

If you have Android 2.1 or 2.3 and updated it to the latest update from your carrier, then you do have Arabic support. To check if it works, then just visit BBC Arabic and see if Arabic shows correctly and the letters are connected.

Enabling Arabic keyboard

To enable Arabic typing, you need to press Menu, then select "Language and Keyboard", then under "Keyboard settings" select "Default input", then select "Writing Languages", and check "Arabic". You will then see a language switching icon on your keyboard (the "globe" symbol).

Not only does Arabic work well, the font looks much better than what is in CyanogenMod for example.
