Andkon Tackles Mozilla Website Again

Filed under: Technology — 1:26 pm

Andras “andkon” Konya recently wrote up a critique of the current design of the website. He even proposes a thorough redesign, complete with a working demonstration.

I found the Flash intro particularly interesting.


Update: staff member Gervase Markham has some thoughts on Andkon’s use of statistics.


My new Palm

Filed under: General,Technology — 7:29 pm

I just got a Palm Tungsten E handheld. It’s pretty good. I already feel more organized.

Does anybody have any tips or recommendations for apps or hacks? I’d love for this thing to be tricked out. I’m open to any suggestion, but just remember that I’d like for it to be done as cheaply as possible.

Firefox Critical Update 0.10.1

Firefox critcial update notification

This little guy just popped up in Firefox. It seems that a hacker could have deleted files in my download directory if he or she first managed to get me to download a malicious file.

Read the press release for more information.


Just for me

Filed under: Technology — 7:29 pm

Currently with Firefox 1.0 PR, I use the following plugins: Web Developer, IE View, Blank Last, Mini T, Undoclosetab, and Tabbrowser Preferences. And I’ve stuck with the Qute theme for quite some time now.

Just in case anyone was wondering.

Microsoft Security Program Manager Stephen Toulouse runs Firefox. That’s pretty cool.

SP2 just popped up in my Windows Update this morning. I don’t think I’m going to install it yet.

Yeah. I’m… hesitant.

CNN Report: Afghanistan could implode. Yeah, this doesn’t sound good at all.

Kerry gave his acceptance speech tonight. I didn’t catch it. I did hear some bits of it this afternoon on the radio though. Hey, curious about those rumors on his medals? Here’s the real scoop.

Oh, and I’m looking forward to September 14th. And sometime during the middle of August. Mmm…


Good luck, Mr. Hubble

NASA just released some digitized photos from the Apollo 11 mission. Check them out. Amazing stuff.

Also cool: these Saturn images. They just keep getting cooler and cooler.

But alas, things don’t look that good for NASA’s budget. Bah.


“Relegated” sounds like a vocabulary word

Filed under: General,Technology — 9:55 pm

Well, I’m getting ready for a trip up to Vermont this weekend. I’m going to be visiting my brother and sister-and-law. They are having a cookout on their new patio that they built themselves. I’ve been relegated to bring cookies. It should be a fun time.

I think I’ve narrowed it down to one digital camera. I’m looking at the Panasonic DMC-LC70, in part because I’m going to be getting a pretty good deal on it. One thing though, it uses Secure Digital media. I have no experience with that stuff. Anybody know where I can get some good SD media on the cheap? Maybe some sale I don’t know about?


Gmail account

I am now the proud owner of a Gmail account. I went with Clever, huh? Anyway, from what I hear, these things are supposed to be a pretty hot commodity.

Credit goes to Jordan for the invite. Thanks again, Jordan.


FireFox 0.9.1

Filed under: Current Events,Technology — 3:58 am

Well, I updated to Firefox 0.9.1 a few hours ago. I had been using 0.8 since mid-June and had been waiting on 0.9 for a little while. It only took me eleven minutes from arriving to the FireFox page until browsing readiness. That includes reading the release notes, backing up 0.8, downloading, installing, getting the Qute theme, and installing all my extensions.

I chuckle over an article I saw recently. It seems The Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team recommends not using Internet Explorer because of recent vulnerabilities being exposed.

Heh heh.


Firefox 0.9

Filed under: Technology — 8:13 pm

Well, I’m going to stick with FireFox 0.8 for a little longer. A few more days, at the least. My buddy Joey seems to have had a little trouble upgrading to 0.9, but being the devout Open Source fellow that he is, his sticking with it. I’m putting a “TrackBack” from his post here. At least I think I am. We’ll see how that goes.

All in all, a good first post.
