I don’t notice it often, but I keep my laptop plugged in and on for longer and longer nowadays. And except for Firefox (which I ditch and switch back every two weeks) everything else swims along fine.

What’s yours? 😉


I highly recommend people to switch to RubyNetBeans (the Netbeans support in Ruby) for people who prefer an IDE-heavy approach to development. I still use Textmate, but the integrated webserver support, shell script automation, and esp. the new debugger (which is still slow), is really useful.
