Cutting edge

I'm currently testing using the open source browser and email clients from Mozilla. Firefox, the browser; and Thunderbird, the email/news client. Or wherever they're from. I downloaded Netscape a while back and absolutely hated it. Pure piss. Popups, weird rendering and purposefully not the look and feel of Explorer.

Firefox, however, as an open source adventure, is able to both differentiate from AND improve upon Internet Explorer at the same time. (where Explorer can only improve and other commercial concerns can only differentiate) At this point, I declare that Open Source has matured enough to be an option for almost everyone. Install couldn't have been easier, and the basic set-up was good enough for horseshoes. Or however that goes.

In other news, I am having trouble typing today and have been very clumsy lately. Monday I dropped and nearly destroyed a $4000 tape drive. I almost turned tail and ran.
