Flood Pictures

The Boston Globe has some amazing photos from the 2008 Midwest floods. Particularly impressive is that first one with the nearby tornado.

Elmo Numa Numa

This is disturbing enough to keep me awake for some time, yet still funny. Edit: Elmo and Andrea Bocelli and Elmo and Robert DeNiro are just slightly less wierd.

Firefox 3.0 Is Out

So the servers had a giant melt down. That’s hopefully history now. It’s out! Go download it. While your at it, spread the word and help break a world record. After all, how many world records have you participated in so far? Awesomebar – Find what you want easier than ever. Malware Protection – Stay […]

Only Hours Left

Something tells me that at about 10:00 PST / 1:00 EST something big will be happening. I sure hope someone is interested 😉 .

The FCC for years has been considering any connection greater than 200kbps to be broadband. For the past several years that’s been pretty misleading. In addition, they only collect downstream, not upstream. They also consider an entire zip code to have broadband if only 1 home can get it. That’s not very accurate. This makes […]

Embedded JavaScript For Web 3.0

Hopefully your now under control. As pointed out in various places like Slashdot and all the links in the paragraph above, the […]

Firefox Deletes Printers

The Daily WTF has a great post on Firefox Deleting Printers. Be aware of that bug. I checked bugzilla, and don’t think it’s been fixed for Firefox 3. Note: For those who aren’t familiar with The Daily WTF, it’s not a real bug, just a fool who thinks it’s there.

Firefox 3 Field Guide

Deb Richardson has a really sweet guide on what’s new in Firefox 3. If you don’t already know, you should go read that now.
