Lots of STUFF!

Stuff 1


When did Firefox start sucking? This is bad. Even with the most uber-recent update (as of this morning), it's sluggish and has a tendency to act confused. "Oh wait, you wanted to CLICK that? I thought you just wanted to stare at it and push the mouse button." Don't s'pose it's a conspiracy by Google and Micro$oft, do you?

Stuff 2


I feel good today! :D Got a haircut and a few chores done over the weekend but was otherwise remarkably unproductive. laurie_robey and I both found ourselves compelled to nap repeatedly and insistently, but speaking only for myself, it seems to have been just what the doctor ordered. I'm positively perky today, at least by comparison, and hope to have a kickass week.

Stuff 3


Saw "The Next Doctor" and "Planet of the Dead" over the weekend; enjoyed them both, although I enjoyed "Next Doctor" a bit more. Neither one was exactly a huge moment in Doctor Who history, but they were fun enough adventures. "Waters of Mars" looks like a pretty bog-standard "zombies on a base" episode, tho, which I've gotten pretty tired of. I'm glad Doctor Who is trucking along, but it's definitely starting to need an infusion of new ideas.

Stuff 4


One more week of sketches on Tuesday and Thursday for SJ I'm afraid, but as I'm actively clearing out the backlog of stuff that's built up while I was sick, this won't last forever. I have at least tried to keep the sketches interested in and of themselves rather than being "just filler."

It sounds like Steve Moffat is going to take the show in a new direction once he takes over. Let's hope it's a good one!

Re: Firefox 3
Supposedly, giving yourself a new profile in Firefox will fix a lot of problems Ff 3 has been having:

Re: Firefox 3
Of course, then you have to reinstall toolbars, etc.

If you don't use stuff like Firefox skins and extensions, then Google Chrome would be a very good choice.

Starts very quickly, loads and renders pages quickly, tabs behave intelligently, and the Windows version does have support for plugins such as Flash and QuickTime.
(the Linux version is still in Alpha testing, so no plugin support yet...)

Mmmm, hopefully the DVR saved those, i really want to catch up with the Doctor, since Tennent

Mmmm, hopefully the DVR saved those, i really want to catch up with the Doctor, since Tennent <sp?> is leaving, and rumor has it that his departure will involve the return of the Master, and possibly Gallifrey. Bringing back a lot of the old stuff that they'd tossed aside is a good sign, perhaps the episodes will get better, acting's been great. Love David's Doctor, but the stories haven't been all that original.

Speaking of Sci-Fi shows, have you given Warehouse 13 a look? So-so, but has lots of potential, ifn the writers can make use of it.

version 2.0.0.7

I rolled back to 2.0.0.4 and that fixed it.

Though yeah, I've heard this new 3.5 version is really breaking everything all over again all over town.... ;P
