Concentration Means Speed

Posted in Life by Sina Iravanian on April 16, 2011

Have you seen people who do their job at an astonishing speed. They deliver their code very fast, study different articles fast and with a rather high quality, while others (like me?) do the same type of jobs with a very low speed and often in a lower quality.

I believe that this is more a matter of concentration; rather than speed, or intelligence.

Enabling Middle Click in Synaptics Touchpad Drivers

Posted in Tips and Tricks by Sina Iravanian on April 16, 2011

Recently I upgraded my currently installed Synaptics touchpad driver to version 15.x, and I found that I cannot emulate the middle-click effect by pressing both right and left click buttons. I found no options in the settings to enable that functionality. Finally after searching the web I found a workaround here [+]:

  1. Run the registry editor (regedit)
  2. Go to key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Synaptics\SynTP\Defaults\
  3. Here create a new key as a DWORD and name it as 'HasBothButtonFeature' without the quotes and set the value to 1.
  4. Log off and Log on again

It worked fine for me.
