Fire in ones belly burns one out if the fire is not tempered with a good dose of moderation. Thank god for the weekend.

I have been working extremely hard as I have this mindset whereby if I don’t do all that I can when I am young, I will not be able to achieve them later in life due to age, commitments and passed opportunities.

I guess that sense of insecurity is causing me to me chew on huge loads of things. I have taken it upon myself to do podcasts, start my own open source project, learn all sorts of technologies and also participating in some home brew products with friends which may or may not end up as a product for a start-up.

I am however starting to wonder if I have spread myself too thin too fast. I noticed that my work rate has been slowing in all areas, I have been feeling very exhausted practically everyday and I have trouble focusing on things.

Perhaps I should take this weekend to think things over and perhaps it is time I scale back my personal projects and start living. Perhaps it is about time I do what brings me piece of mind rather than whats going on now which is dividing my mind into several areas and giving each sections huge headaches that when combined is perhaps whats caused me to be in the state I am in.

Perhaps I should start slinging my axe and be a bed room Rockstar with my good friend Teko and basically start living again.

As much as I hate stereotyping genders, this comic not only has a grain of truth in it but can be considered fact in most cases.

Cross-platform Silverlight out-of-browser Facebook client finally launches

Back in April 2009, Microsoft demonstrated a pure-Silverlight Facebook application called Silverface. Everyone thought it had vanished into thin air, especially with Fishbowl’s release. It seems, however, they’ve been working on a Silverlight client the entire time: ladies and gentlemen, the beta Silverlight 4 Client for Facebook!

And boy was it worth the wait.

I won’t bore you with a laborious review with lots of screenshots — Think Different has pictures, if you want — I’ll just tell you that this thing works, and it works really well. It’s black and swish and shiny and silver. The entire gamut of Facebook functionality has been brought over to the Silverlight client. Status updates, photo browsing, mail — even a neat photo uploader tool.

Plus it has notifications, ala TweetDeck or Growl. You can just forget most of the apps I listed in last week’s Five Facebook Desktop Apps feature — this bad boy does it all.

Except chat. It doesn’t frackin’ do chat. Anyway, give it a go — you’ll need to install the new version developer version of Silverlight, but it’s worth it, I promise. Microsoft Silverlight > Adobe Air?!

Damn, and I thought the Fishbowl WPF based desktop application was cool. Looks like Adobe is going to get stiff competition from M$ for the cross platform RIA app arena.
