Last week I upgraded my motherboard and cpu, and reinstalled windows. I have finally decided to not install a whole lot of crap anymore. Just stuff I really want / use. One of the tools I want to keep is Rocketdock. It’s a bit like MacOs X’s program launcher. It looks very nice, and it’s very handy. You can easily keep the programs you use most often at the top of the screen. Or to the left / right if you want to do so. I am sure I am not using all of the features yet, but for now it’s been working great !

Death of a fellow MMORPG player

How come everytime I read about a fellow mmorpg player dies, that I dont even know, it makes me very sad ? I just updated my podcast feed of the Instance and noticed a special episode for Bruce Galloway aka Milliway in game. I have never met him, but reading about him, he was a wonderful helpful person.

From A Shadow Rose – Very nice post on

Why do I, a thirty-seven year old man, play a computer game like World of Warcraft? What blatant justification could there possibly be for anyone to sit for hours in front of a computer screen and immerse themselves into a fantasy world of RP and, at least for a time, forget about his RL? I can give you one such answer: Bruce Galloway.

The instance – Rest in peace Bruce Galloway

The lifehacker has a very nice post on how to get more out of Launchy. In case you don’t know what Launchy is:

Launchy is a free windows utility designed to help you forget about your start menu, the icons on your desktop, and even your file manager.

Launchy indexes the programs in your start menu and can launch your documents, project files, folders, and bookmarks with just a few keystrokes! Take Launchy beyond application launching
