IE 7 vs. FF 2

What is everybody using for Browsers these days?

I've always been a huge proponent of FireFox, and up till now it has been pretty much a no-brainer to move away from IE6 (it's called tabbed browsing). However, with the initial release of FireFox 2.0, it seems there have been some pretty significant problems.

I've been checking out IE7 on my main machine at home for a while and so far quite like it for general browsing on XP. Still have to use FireFox 1.5 for anything related to development though.

What is everybody else using for a main browser these days?

Against the Darkness! (remix)

Posted by Kyro Sk On 2006-10-27 2 comments

Cary and I would like to (re)invite all mortal persons to attend a Halloween game party at our haunted cottage - if you are brave enough to travel to the most certainly possessed hamlet of Vanscoy.


Witness the fury of Dracula. Survive a betrayal at the house on the hill. Battle zombies and watch for a clue as to who may have perpetrated foul murder. Other nefarious activities to be included.


When?

Saturday Oct 28th,
Young beasties will be about from around 2pm to 6pm or so, then the real monsters come out of the woodwork and are welcome to stay until the blackest hours of the night!

Additional details: please feel free to bring food, beverages, snacks, etc...
We will be providing burgers and hotdogs with an assortment of trimmings throughout the day.

Rumor is that I will be in costume (we'll see about that!), we encourage others to do the same.

Penalties for those who don't include tours of the inferno, endless re-runs of David Hasselhoff video spots, and ear implants the continuously repeat "Girl You Know It's True" by Milli Vanilli (*gasp*).

Let it Snow

I know it has never made me very popular (like, what really has?) but I have a profound love of snow. Call it a Saskatchewan thing (or a deeply entrenched emotional flaw) but I love the white fluffy stuff, no matter how peculiar the regularily of it's shape. To wit:


Check out these new photographs taken by Kenneth G. Libbrecht using a specially designed snowflake photomicroscope. They are just amazing - or at least they are amazing if you are a psychologically unbalanced snow lover like me.

Don't think of them as dead, think of them as liberated from Sadam's "brutal regime".

When is a Republican a Democrat?

Posted by Toad008 On 2006-10-05 3 comments

I don't know if anyone else has seen this. I was stunned.

I always thought news agency's had fact checkers, and editors, and mistakes like that shouldn't happen. I find it interesting they not only called him a democrat, when he's actually a republican, multiple times, but instead of fixing it they just no longer specify his party. Although I guess changing one character is a lot tougher than removing the whole thing.

Just enforces how brutal some mainstream media outlets are. How can people honestly think they aren't biased?

Interesting to note some of the bottom links too. Apparently Fox News isn't the only ones claiming he's a democrat. Interesting that no one can figure out what party he's in.

Bear Arms or Arm Bears (or whatever the hell they want to do)

Don't those crazy yanks get it? Violence begets violence. Escalation is not a strategy, it is the last gasp of the vapid.

Education for the Popes

Posted by James Davie On 2006-10-02 2 comments

Greetings my little popes!

What, you say? That's right you are a pope, but I can't explain it here. In response to my colleague's previous post about "23 militia groups" I thought I'd be nice and throw a bone to those of you still deluded bloggers.

Suffice it to say that the law of fives is connected to them, and their conspiracy; and the more you know the less you really know and therefore will understand; maybe...

Discordians are tough to track down so I threw a few links in this post.

Enjoy! Remember not to eat hot dog buns, and don't believe anything that you read.

All hail Eris! (and Bob)
