Skype HQ

По мотивам поста на хабре привожу примерные настройки для более качественного видео в скайпе.

Ищем конфиг скайпа (config.xml) и подправляем видео настройки на что-то подобное
Файл конфига Windows XP у меня был в C:\Documents and Settings\<WINDOWS-USER>\Application Data\Skype\<SKYPE-USER>\config.xml

Skype video calls with high resolution and frame rate
High Quality Video
Хачу ищо!

Mazda 3 dashboard backlight

Herts (Matrix lease cars provider) gave me new Mazda 3 not ready for Israel - when you turn lights on (by the law from this month for winter period) - you can't see anything on displays and fuel indicator!

Upd: My fault, you just need to press on that light level control to enable max light during daytime. I found this logic right after I tested Honda Civic Hybrid - it has '-' and '+' buttons, so when you got full level in bars on a panel, pressing '+' again give you max light.

Updates 2.0

The new way of software updates is update checkers (can use both)
And another cool service for installing software via checkboxes is Ninite - you select programs you want to install from the list and it do that with no pain! But be aware here about all programs will be installed with their defaults (usually suits for most people).
