Facebook For Dummies

I was in shopping around over the weekend and I happened to walk past the book store and happened to see Facebook For Dummies. There is even a Facebook page devoted to this book.

I mean seriously who would buy a how to for a website that continually changes and adds new feature sets as often as Facebook does?

Compiz Application Switcher Fix

I was having an issue with with compiz getting the application switcher to show the windows previews. using a [Radeon HD 2600 Series].

The windows were showing up but with a plain white mini window. Now I find it productive to have this plugin enabled as when you are tabbing through it often is quicking and faster to look at the mini color layout to decied if this is the window you are infact looking for.

Before

To fix
Open up compiz settings manager.
go to Application Switcher plugin
Uncheck the MipMap option.

After

Hope this helps some one else out
