Intel SSD Toolbox 3.0

The new version works great for my ThinkPad T61.

Terrible experience: the previous version 2.0 often failed to run the optimizer and it took longer for the machine to recognize the SSD when rebooting it.

New Bag

My 3-year-old bag got broken and it was my favorite because it protected my ThinkPad very well. I’m going to check if I can repair it, but I bought a new bag.

Old: OUT OF THE BLUE / BLACK HORN / BUSY BUSINESS BAG

New: LUGGAGE LABEL / OVER NIGHT BRIEF CASE

Intel SSD Firmware Update

I have updated the firmware. The disk is encrypted by PGP Whole Disk Encryption, but I had no trouble.

ThinkPad T61 (7659-C68)

Old version: 4PC10302

New version: 4PC10362

Two wonderful weeks with SSD

It has been two wonderful weeks since I got the Intel 300GB SSD. I usually need to use

  • Eclipse (for Java programming),
  • DB2 (for millions of records),
  • Cognos BI 8 (for visualization),
  • SPSS Modeler 14 (for visualization).

It was not a good idea to run them simultaneously with the old HDD. Now I can run all of them simultaneously with no performance problem. I should have bought it earlier.

I’m going to update the firmware once the current project was done.

Intel SSD 320 Series

My primary machine is a ThinkPad T61 (7659 C68). I have just finished upgrading the HDD (160GB) to an Intel SSD 320 Series (300GB). It works fine and off course everything runs faster!

Discovr Apps

I tried out Discovr Apps to search for applications similar to Complexity Zoo for iPad. I’m not sure how the similarity is defined and calculated, but I could download and use “How to tie a tie” for business meetings.
