Mmm… QuickTime 7

QuickTime 7 is out, Windows version “coming soon”. My Mac OS X Tiger package is in transit, so I won’t download the update for 10.3, I’ll just wait the week. Oh how great it looks. I can’t wait to play with all the new stuff. 😀

50 Million

As noted by Blake and Asa: 50,000,000 Got that? Well now it’s actually a little higher, and still growing. Amazing. Just a year ago, nobody outside the tech community knew what Firefox or Mozilla were. Now yesterday someone recognized my Firefox TShirt. What a difference just a few months can make. Those 50 million downloads […]

Mac OS X Tiger

Just ordered Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. I wanted to do it over a week ago but have been too busy. Pinkerton has a great post that will likely be a Mac OS X 10.4.1 update. If your a Mac fan and not reading his and Hyatt’s blog… you should start. On another note Camino […]

Kevin Smith and Open Source

Fellow Jersey Guy Kevin Smith aka Silent Bob has a WordPress powered blog and a distinct SpreadFirefox “Get Firefox” badge on the lower right. Apparently Silent Bob, isn’t so silent when you look at his site. One of my favorites just got a bit cooler in my book. Silent Bob rules. [Hat tip, Matthew Mullenweg]

AIM 6 Beta Out

New AIM Beta (AIM 6.0) Out AIM’s Triton Beta is out. Took it for a spin today. Some observations: Much slower. Using AOL’s silly network utilities apparently. Totally unnecessary. Skype works behind any firewall I’ve ever seen with no problems, and uses much less CPU/RAM to connect. I don’t know how AOL’s going to validate […]

It looks like someone is back in the game

It looks like someone has been busy. Mike Homer and Marc Andreessen have been busy. Macintosh and Firefox versions are under development and will be available soon. Looks like they still remember their roots. It’s an interesting concept. I look forward to checking it out in more detail.

The Wall of Shame

Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger has a really cool new screensaver (video available through the link). I think having the new reporter tool’s “Top 10 Worst Offenders” list as a screensaver to make an official “wall of shame” would be rather cool. I think that will be my new screensaver when it ships.

Photography

Noah Grey still amazes me with his photography (obligatory monkey pic). Everytime I for whatever reason run across the site, I am stuck going through his great work. There are billions of photo’s on the web. But only a handful of that quality.

Who hacked Paris Hilton’s Sidekick?

A few months ago Paris Hilton‘s Sidekick got “Hacked’. Well not exactly. According to the hack itself it was obtained through social engineering. Other reports are that her sweet Tinkerbell was the key to her account (you can argue if that really is social engineering). Now she’s apparently in a feud with Nicole Richie. One […]

Mozilla CVS Statistics

Ran some statistics on my cvs tree after a basic pull to build Firefox. There are several things to note: gerv cheats (relicensing). 😉 we didn’t pull /mail, so mscott and bienvenu are underestimated several people commit many patches for non-cvs people, so not all code is owned by the committer. removing whitespace counts as […]
