I love Firefox.
I’m a permanent Internet Explorer convert. Since I bought my MacBook Pro in July I have not used IE. I didn’t download and try out the IE7 beta, I simply wasn’t interested. Firefox meets my needs.
In that spirit, I’d like to dedicate this post to taking a tour of my currently open Firefox tabs. By the way, I typically have no fewer than 10 tabs open at a time, so get comfortable… this is going to be fun!
First, I always keep Gmail and my LiveJournal Friends Page open, so I can stay in touch. I’ve been working to develop my business relationship with Microsoft, and was reading about their Small Business Symposium. I have also been reading a NYT article about free stuff for your cell phone, and while I think most of it is pretty far fetched in terms of whether I would find it useful, I have been playing around with YouMail (coincidentally, the next tab that is open). If YouMail had a few more features, it would be an amazing alternative to using the default wireless carrier voicemail system.
Back on Sunday Nov 28, Erin and I waited in line at Best Buy starting at 4 AM to get the new Nintendo Wii. The store opened at 10 AM, and we walked away with our Wii around 10:30 AM. Boy was it worth it! We also met some cool people in line, one of whom recommended that we buy the new Zelda: Twilight Princess game. We bought it and started playing and loved it immensely, but got a little stuck. So after a few hours of being stuck we consulted a complete Zelda walk-through guide to get us unstuck. I kept the tab open just in case we got stuck again.
Oh, and can you imagine Bill Gates as our next president? You don’t make billions of dollars by being foolish with money or by being a bad manager! Of course, I wouldn’t be “fair and balanced” if I didn’t have a look at these awesome screen shots of the Mac OS that go all the way back to the beginning (that’s right, System 0.0 released 21 years ago). When I just refreshed that page to make sure it was still working, I got a “Bandwidth Exceeded” error, which means they should be looking at my web host, DreamHost, which offers transfers of something up in the 1-3 TB (terabytes) per month (which for about 99.9% of the websites out there, anything >1 TB per month = Unlimited). Oh, and I was reading today about how they are now offering their best hosting package for FREE to 501(c)(3) non-profits. That is definitely a sweet deal!
And that, folks, is all. Until next time!
