For those of you who love LEGO you just might want to check out the new LEGO Mindstorms kit. With a price tag of $249.99 USD it is not a cheap toy but anyone who has every owned any of the Mindstorms sets knows it is worth every penny.
As you can see from this US Patent Office request. O’Reilly actually tried to patent the word ‘netizens’ back in 1994. Not sure exactly how they planned on claiming ownership but that isn’t what patents are all about (oh, wait. Yes it is).
Apparently, in order to render obsolete flashing pages that can occurs when a webpage loads, (due to the client getting data from any number of sources; the stylesheet, various data sources, etc) web browsers are programmed with a little delay. The delay is, appropriately, conservative. But by adjusting a variable in the Safari preference file you can speed Safariâ€™s delay time up.
- Make sure Safari is not running.
- Open Terminal and type:
defaults write com.apple.Safari WebKitInitialTimedLayoutDelay 0.25
That’s it. You can start up Safari again and see the difference. If you want to restore the default delay value than perform the same steps above but replace 0.25 with 1.0 (the default).
