Bush tells the world to go away

Bush has taken his political policies to the web. He’s blocking non-american IP addresses now. Once again telling every non-American to go to hell. An interesting note is that he might by trying to keep Americans overseas from reading his website before deciding who to vote for. Vote blind rather than see how anti-world his […]

A curious note about MovableType 3.x

A curious note on Jay Allen’s Blog: If you run a non-profit multi-author blog (or any type that requires payment) you should contact 6A to get better (read: perhaps $0) licensing terms. They’ve asked people to do that because they aren’t in the business of milking those who are doing good and interesting things but […]

Flash tutorial for Firefox 1.1

I briefly flashed the idea on #spreadfirefox, but I thought I’d elaborate on it here: First Impressions are everything We’ve said that before, and most agree. Psychologists have spent considerable time on this. People make very quick decisions on if they like something or not. They either like it, or they don’t. Impressions happen quickly. […]

If you haven’t already: donate to the Firefox Newspaper Campaign

It costs as little as $10 to do, and can really help promote Firefox. It’s a great way to help promote the Fox. Not to mention the extra cash helps out the Mozilla Foundation. They make some great software. Think about it: How many other products are useful, innovative, stable, and low cost? Not many. […]

Freeipods Pt 13: Lucky 13… it shipped

FreeiPods.com actually delivered. Today it happened. FedEx dropped off my free iPod. It’s a 20GB 4th Generation Apple iPod. I was just about to leave, so I took a few pics with my Camera Phone and left. I’m to busy to open and play for at least a few days. I’m pretty sure it’s not […]

More Mozilla and Google talk

As I mentioned here, Google desktop isn’t bad, but doesn’t support Firefox and Thunderbird as well as their Microsoft counterparts. Apparently that might change. Great news indeed.

Reporter: It’s coming

Nuff said… … for now

If I didn’t know any better, I’d call it a hoax

This website just looks like a hoax… but I know they really plan on being real in a few years time. Just amazing how science has progressed. To think that a company honestly plans to offer flights to space. Now where is that store that sells the flying cars? Is it next to where I […]

Freeipods Pt 12: Shipped, and no more graffiti

I confirmed with FedEx that a package from Apple Computer Inc. to Robert Accettura has shipped. Unless Steve Jobs decided to send me a dog turd via FedEx, that might be an iPod. Also in the news, it appears the iPods are no longer graffiti covered with freeipod.com on the back. The part number for […]

Yahoo! new layout for Mozilla

It appears initially after the announcement that Yahoo! would start testing a new layout, they only offered it to IE users. Now it appears it’s enabled for Mozilla/Netscape users. Should note it’s more standards compliant.
