One Long String of Links

...because it's my prerogative to abuse a little pulpit to the world when I have one, and because you have nothing better to do than to sit there and read it.

First, a couple of sweet /. sigs:

  • Support bacteria! It's the only culture some people have. ~ melted
I found this while playing with this Firefox extension. I also hacked a couple of extensions so that they would work on version 1.0.0 I just (finally) upgraded Firefox from 1.0PR to 1.0, mostly because I discovered that Flashblock was available for this version. On 1.0PR I had Flash Click to view and was unwilling to upgrade from the preview release to the full release if I had to see a bunch of flash ads all over the place.

Other cool extensions: Adblock, CuteMenus, FoxyTunes, Gcache, Image Zoom, Add Bookmark Here, Image-Show-Hide, Nuke Anything, Download Sort, Favicon Picker1, FlagFox1, Work Offline1.

And yes, I am plugging Firefox, if you hadn't noticed. I'm sorry if it's uncreative. If you want something more Tim-ish, beck just sicked me like a pit bull on this blog.

0 One of them has a typo in it that makes it good for versions 0.9 - .10, so I merely corrected that one to 1.0. The other, I just arbitrarily changed from 0.9 to 1.0. A pretty simple hack, actually. I ended up disabling them, though, because the sound events don't correspond to the ones I want. Oh, well. It was fun and I got to brag about it.
1 If you want these, you'll have to whitelist the server the first time you click the install link. They're Dutch, so they're cool.
