Don't save chat history in my Gmail account
I've no idea Gmail saves all my chatting log with Gtalk until I tried to search something in my Gmail.
I was shocked, since actually I don't use Gtalk client but Adium, and I can't remember if there's a checkbox or notice somewhere before I signed up gtalk. Actually I thought gtalk service is tightly bundled with gmail service.
I don't want to keep the log, so I "googled" a solution. The solution said, there's a "Chat history:" setting in "Chat" tab of "Gmail Settings". Well, I spent 10 mins to find such tab, but I didn't see it because I was using Safari 2.
Google Notifier dies on Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Google Notifier will crash after a few times of checking mails if you have proxy setting in system preferences.
An interesting bug. But I've no idea why Google still couldn't give a fix, Leopard is already out more than 2 weeks.
