WeatherPixies Revisited 2

Link: http://www.weatherpixie.com/

In a previous post (now missing), I written how I was running three instances of the Yahoo! Widget for WeatherPixies on my laptop...and showed the pixies for them in the article.

Though I found out on a recent trip that the Widget consumes a significant amount of CPU, which is particular bad when you are running on battery....where the norm is to get 1.5 hours if I'm lucky...I suspect a combination of all the added widgets and perhaps the addition of memory to my laptop...I'm now lucky if I get more than 1 hour of use.

I guess I could really use that new laptop...even though a 1.8GHz Pentium 4M still falls in the range of what new laptops are running. Battery life will definitely be more of a factor when I get to looking.

Also the images were impacting page load times on my site. (though the last.fm images also introduce a significant impact to page load times....though it was worse when I was using the javascript/playable ones).

The other annoyance is gvisit seems to have stopped working....it is showing that I've had no visitors...and I was curious to see if it recorded the hits that I made while traveling.... Though of more significance is the current resource 'outage' affecting the boinc stats counter.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
