And suddenly it all began to make sense…

Me: I think on a larger scale than most Nick: yeah Me: you’d think I’d be compensating for something… but I think I’m complementing something Nick: it happens

Cyclical pessimist reality

What sucked more? The chicken or the egg? Boy, I’ve been doing so many different things the last few days, to finish up this semester it’s sickening. Will take a week off to cleanup, relax, and cram out Project Aquarius. With my current time frame, I should have a beta-launch sometime this summer. I can’t […]

Some people are more intelligent after life

And here’s a great example of that theory. Yea right. Voluntary Collective Licensing VCL is about as legitimate as the “Universal language” many Linguist experts have been working towards for generations. It’s a system that will never work because it’s fundamentally flawed. What makes it so moronic is that people know it’s flawed, and they […]

Mozilla and GNOME

No doubt by now most have been reading up on the future of the Mozilla Foundation and the GNOME Foundation. A whole bunch of things are circulating. Some look very official, some sound official, some I question. I’m personally 100% for the idea of GNOME and Mozilla Foundation working together. I think together they can […]

One more week

One more week of CLASSES. Then FINALS Then…. ah… sweet summer. So yes, I’m busy. When I’m not involved in academic work, I’m working on project aquarius. And yes, that’s slated for this summer (I hope). Oh, a side effect of a biology presentation resulted in Wolf Pr0n for your own enjoyment. And you thought […]

Would be nice to see Thunderbird Added

Well, AOL’s now doing what they said they would. IMAP access. Also note XHTML Transitional code for that help page. Interesting since AOL said it would be looking to put more stuff in HTML. But no mention of Thunderbird. Any AOL employees out there who can make a few calls? Evangelism Team?

Using Stuffit on Jar Files

For those who prefer Aladdin Stuffit on Windows, here some tips: The following registry key will associate .jar files to that you can expand them with ease. A nice trick to have.

AOL to let users use Thunderbird

Well, somewhat… CNET news is reporting that AOL is to announce IMAP access, as rumored a few months ago. This could greatly reopen the market on email. AOL has millions of customers, and has been fighting spam for sometime (Tbird has a spam filter). AOL customers Also interesting is the announcement that Netscape (another member […]

Bugday: Triaging Top 100 Sites

Well, it’s a great goal they have in go through all the Evangelism bugs. That should make some real ground in making sure Mozilla not only meets, but kicks IE’s royal butt everywhere. What I found interesting was the Alexa Query for the Top 100 English Sites. If you look at those websites, most will […]

Most Pathetic Man Alive

If this isn’t pathetic, nothing is. Do people have any self respect? I guess not.
