Little Nugget of Goodness
Posted by Sam at 3:09 PM

I just have time for a little nugget of goodness today...

Remember my excitement over the release of Firefox 1.0? Well, over the past few weeks, my excitement waned. As I became more and more trigger happy with the extensions, I noticed that Firefox was slowly transforming into a slug. Don't get me wrong, the Fox was still usable, she just wasn't as spry as she was a few weeks ago.

Then, like an unexpected kick in the crotch, I remembered that some wonderful programmer had constructed his own Firefox 1.0 build, optimized for the G4 processor (I heart open source!). Well, I downloaded that sucka, and fired it up. It runs good, fast, stable... all of my extensions, bookmarks, history, etc. are still intact. And most importantly, I'm happy again.

There is also a G5 build. If someone would like to buy me a G5, I would be glad to test that out for you.

I have no idea of what you're talking about, but anything that can be described in nugget form has gotta be good.

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
