Firefox 4.0!
Category: Technical Stuff

I am now rocking the program, and getting it set up to my liking -- updating and seeking out new add-ons, replacing my broken theme (with Nuvola, for the time being), changing configuration values, and so forth -- took several hours out of my day that I hadn't planned on losing. So far it's decent. I don't like the removal of the status bar (fortunately, Status-4-Evar restores that functionality), and some of the default options are less than ideal (tabs on top; what's up with that?) -- and the program appears to be a memory hog (which is admittedly nothing new) -- but I haven't had any crashes yet.1 (more...)

  1. Erm, I think I spoke too soon about the crash thing there... though I'm pretty sure that was due to one of these plugins. Hey, speaking of plugins, dig this crazy WordPress footnote thing! []

Tonight’s dinner
Category: Miscellany

Poured dry oatmeal, salt, garlic powder, cajun seasoning, cornmeal, and sliced frozen carrots and squash into a bowl, then poured half a beer on top of that. Nuked for several minutes, added a teaspoon of mayonnaise and a handful of flax seed. Stirred and consumed.

2011 update!
Category: Miscellany … Toys … Travels

Wow -- it's been a rather long time since I wrote in the old blog, eh? Let's see what's happening with me...

1. I have gone two weeks without buying any action figures! My last such purchases were on January 1, and since then I've actually returned two figures and sold one, so I actually have fewer toys than I had before and have spent negative money on them. This will not last, since I intend to spend $7.05 on Hasbro products by the end of the month in order to qualify for another free item (through January 31, Hasbro is offering select free items for purchases of $20), but still. Two weeks without buying any toys! Considering that I averaged nearly a toy a day from mid-November through December, that is pretty impressive.

Note that my purchase of the Doctor Who Christmas Adventure Set last week does not count, since that was reserved back in December and I had already set aside the necessary funds for it. Also, as it is a reserve item and won't ship until I've accrued $60 worth of merchandise, there's no telling when I'll actually see it. 🙂 (more...)

MP3 Player meme
Category: Meme

So I got this thing on Facebook about random songs from one's mp3 playlist -- figured I'd duplicate it here! No tagging, but feel free to post your own randomized lists wherever if you feel like it. 🙂

The Facebook meme only asked for 15, but I think I'll list 25 here... 'cause I like squares and quarters. (more...)

More random DVD images!

It suddenly occurred to me to add some more images to the random thingie in the sidebar -- it's been a while since I did that, and I certainly haven't added any since the feature became widgetized! So yeah, now there are 22 new ones that will appear at random as you read the blog and stuff. Since it'd be incredibly difficult to recognize them, however (they could just as easily be images from the previous 311 that you just hadn't encountered yet), I've included them below the cut. See if you recognize any of the films and television shows from which they were taken! (more...)
