I’m trying to make Firefox on Windows XP like Firefox with the GrApple theme on OS X. I don’t have to have it look the same, just compress all the bookmarks in the toolbar into the width of the screen.
This is how I want the bookmarks toolbar to look:
And this is how it looks right now on Windows:
I can find any number of links about only showing the favicon, but none about turning it off to save space. Aargh!
HP’s Photosmart driver proved its genius once again:
The download figures would have made more sense if it was working in kilobytes. As is, that’s quite a buffer overrun.
Toronto’s ice melter
The craving for second-rate chicken came over me. So I’m sat here in the chalet next to two couples who are having a conversation from two decades ago: how they drive out their way for Burger King, how the auto industry’s dying (but still a good place for a pension), bemoaning the lack of the Gardner extension, why recycling doesn’t work … and how John Tory’s a really nice guy who just can’t catch a break.
Just another Sunday night in Scarborough.
I passed the PPE. Now all I need to do is prove that I have engineering experience, and I’ll be able to have a licence to practice engineering. The Engineering Council thought I had enough experience to be a CEng back in 2001, but engineering fundamentals are so different here in Ontario.
The last couple of times we’ve been to the supermarket, we’ve noticed someone has thrown a pack of pork products into the halal section chiller. C’mon people; that kind of behaviour comes free with stupid. Just ‘cos you’ve got bacon breath doesn’t mean you have to force it on everyone else.
My rather weak attempt to show that if something doubles in size, it uses the sum of all its previous endeavour to do so. Source: halves.eps.
I made stovies; turkey ones. They were good.
Friends: After discussion with the other list managers, we've decided to end our policy of asking that list members not "top post" their replies. That's the default behavior of most email clients, and just reminding people of our recommendation to "bottom post" or interleave your replies has become more trouble than its worth. From this point forward, top posting is no longer an issue. Dan Knight, list owner publisher, LowEndMac.com
It’s taken a while, but my favourite TV program ever is coming out on DVD: Absolutely. No, not AbFab; just Absolutely. All four of the show’s seasons are coming out on DVD on April 21st.
(who managed to make my train 11 minutes late, then had it overrun the platform:)
1.) Rent a brewery.
2.) Tell people.
I’m sure, though, that you couldn’t even follow these simple instructions for arranging a piss-up in a brewery.
Someone helpfully posted Holy Modal Rounders – Live 1965 as MP3s. Both Pete and Steve are clearly out of their heads when they played, but it’s a diamond in the rough of the freak folk scene.
The recording has a chequered history. Recorded on June 5th 1965 (no-one knows or remembers where) by WDTM Detroit, the tape belonged to Peter Stampfel’s mother. It was found after she passed away, and mastered to CD for release in 2002. According to Peter, Steve borrowed a CD-R copy, and released it through an acquaintance. Much to Steve’s dismay, the acquaintance claimed that all the money from the release disappeared as expenses. It is now out of print, and seemingly any release could trigger legal action from either party.
Whatever the history, it’s a great record of the time.
It may be a drought for you, but we’re shovelling it here …
A nice piece of informed snark from Joseph Romm: “How do we really know humans are causing global warming?“.
