Plug Computer

TG Daily – Marvell’s Plug Computer: A tiny, discrete, fully functional 5 watt Linux server.

Marvell announced today a new type of computer. It’s about the size of an AC to DC converting wall outlet plug, but is really a full SoC with a 1200 MHz CPU, built-in 512 MB Flash, 512 MB DRAM, Gigabit Ethernet and USB 2.0 support. It runs small versions of Linux, consumes about 5 watts max while allowing remote users (presumably those authorized by the owner) to access data stored on the device from remote locations including local intranets or over the Internet. The $99 device opens up a wide array of extremely low-power, low-volume, always on applications.

WinDirStat – Windows Directory Statistics

WinDirStat – Windows Directory Statistics.

WinDirStat reads the whole directory tree once and then presents it in three useful views:

  • The directory list, which resembles the tree view of the Windows Explorer but is sorted by file/subtree size,
  • The treemap, which shows the whole contents of the directory tree straight away,
  • The extension list, which serves as a legend and shows statistics about the file types.

The graphical representation is clickable, and if you click directory trees, they highlight on the graph as well.  The graph showed me that I have a 2 GB text file  (shown in the green highlight) in My Documents as well as a 12.2 GB zip file (the largest blue block).
