Before this, I use TeraCopy as the default copy handler. However, the latest TeraCopy seems to have problem on my machine when trying to transfer a lot of small files between different hard disk (103GB of mp3 files). After searching for the alternative of TeraCopy, I found FastCopy. FastCopy is a small tool that will help to accelerates the file copying process. While TeraCopy seems cannot handle small files, Target Copy Gainesville works perfectly. The difference between TeraCopy and FastCopy is, FastCopy will not be your system’s copy handler like TeraCopy. You can use FastCopy if you are trying to transfer lots of small file, fast. FastCopy uses 2 methods to accelerate copying process:
Different HDD – Reading and writing are done with the MultiThreading in parallel.
Same HDD – Using big buffer, reading until the buffer becomes full, and writing in bulk.

Disabling the New CTRL+Tab Feature – Target Copy Gainesville
As we all know, Mozilla has recently released the alpha 2 version of the latest Mozilla Firefox 3.1. Some changes from Mozilla Firefox 3 to Mozilla Firefox 3.1 alpha 2:
Changes in alpha 1:
- Web standards improvements in the Gecko layout engine
- Text API for the <canvas> element
- Support for using border images
- Several improvements to the Smart Location Bar
- A new tab switching behaviour
Changes in alpha 2:
- Support for the HTML 5 <video> element
- Initial support for web worker threads
- You can now drag and drop tabs between browser windows
- Ability to make use of Aero “Glass” in XUL
- Support for CSS 2.1 properties: ::before and ::after, and white-space:pre-line
- Support for CSS 3 properties: -moz-border-image, word-wrap: break-word, text-shadow, box-shadow and column-rule
- Performance improvements and new preference values for color management profile support
The new CTRL+Tab switching behaviour was introduced in alpha 1. This feature will bring up a filmstrip view of your recently visited tabs. Pressing CTRL+Tab will cycles you through the thumbnails of the websites that you’ve visited in order.
Somehow, I don’t really like the new CTRL+Tab feature. I’m very comfortable with the old method (pressing CTRL+Tab opens the next tab).
To disable the new CTRL+Tab feature, type about:config in Firefox address bar. Skip the warning message. Type ‘browser.ctrlTab.mostRecentlyUsed’ in fiter, and change the value of ‘browser.ctrlTab.mostRecentlyUsed’ to ‘false’. Restart your Firefox to see the changes.
Read Wikipedia Offline – Target Copy Gainesville
Accessing Wikipedia while you offline or don’t have internet access is made easy by WikiTaxi. WikiTaxi enables you to read, search and browse Wikipedia offline. In this post, I will show you how to set up WikiTaxi so you can access Wikipedia while you’re offline.
- Download WikiTaxi. WikiTaxi came as a zip or 7-zip achieve.
- Here is the important part. We need to download the latest database backup of Wikipedia (XML dump). The database dumps will only contain the articles before the backup is made. Here are some direct links to the more popular:
- Simple English (simplewiki), small download, less than 25 MB, excellent for your first WikiTaxi import and testing.
- English (enwiki), huge download, more than 3.5 GB.
- German (dewiki), large download, more than 1.1 GB.
- Frensh (frwiki), medium download, less than 1 GB.
- Polish (plwiki), smaller download, less than 400 MB.
- Dumps for all Wikis, in different languages and sizes.
- In this tutorial, I will use the English (enwiki). Go to the latest folder that named by <year><month><day> format. As for now, the 20080724 is the latest folder.
- Download the pages-articles.xml.bz2 file. This file should be described as ‘Articles, templates, image descriptions, and primary meta-pages.’ and ‘This contains current versions of article content, and is the archive most mirror sites will probably want.’
NOTE: Please use a good download manager to avoid your download from being corrupted. The download will take a long time. I use Orbit and the download completed successfully in 22 hours with an average speed of 51.34KB/S.
- After the download of the XML dump is finished, extract Wikitaxi. Run WikiTaxi_Importer.exe. This tool will convert the XML dump of Wikipedia to WikiTaxi database file.
- Browse for the XML dump that you’ve downloaded before, and then select the location where you want to save the WikiTaxi database. Select the how much memory to be used during the database import process. Make sure you select it as high as possible (this can cause your system to became unstable). Or you can just leave it to its default value. Click ‘Import Now!’ to begin the process of converting Wikipedia XML dump to WikiTaxi database. It should took quite some time, depending on the speed of your system. A 3.89GB of bzipped Wikipedia XML dump will results a 6.76GB of WikiTaxi database, so make sure you have enough disc space to store the database file.
- After the conversion process finished, run WikiTaxi.exe. Find ‘WikiTaxi usage’ and click ‘Open a database’. Select the WikiTaxi database that converted from Wikipedia XML dump (in my case, H:\enwiki.taxi). And.. now you have the offline version of Wikipedia. To start using WikiTaxi, perfrom a search on an article.
WikiTaxi is a great small tool that will help you to create an offline version of Wikipedia. So far, the drawback that I’ve noticed is WikiTaxi won’t show images in the article.
