Tag files on windows
All GMail addicts know power of tags! Surprisingly, today’s systems have none/limited tag functionality for files. Fortunately I found this freeware for windows which lets you tag almost any filetype. Interface is really good with shell integration and search based on tags is fast too. A real life saver!

Fedora 10 instability issue solved!
One of my Fedora 10 systems used to freeze very frequently. After lot of looking around I found its because of “KWin Composing” which gives OpenGL driven special effects for desktop. Unfortunately, Linux has always been bad at radeon drivers, so it better to disable these effects especially if you have radeon video cards.
in [Compositing] section change Enabled=true to Enabled=false.
Reboot after this change. Now I never get any system freeze - as is expected from solid Linux system :)
