I'm looking at a web page that has a short list of links to MP3 files. I want to download them. I consider right-clicking each one and choosing "Save Link Target As..." . I am feeling lazy. I think, "there's a way to get the computer to do that for me." I can use the mouse to select all that text that the links are in... Then I should be able to say, "I want THESE!" So, off to Google. search for a combination of words that I believe would only appear together in a web page that contains the answer. On the third try, I get a discussion page about Linky. Ding! One click on the xpi and Mozilla now knows how to do this. Except now I have to actually close Mozilla to get the new context menu. Time to process/close out/bookmark the 23 gazillion trains of thought I was surfing in five browser windows with about ten tabbed pages in each... Thank goodness (or laziness) for the "Bookmark this group of tabs" feature....


This paragraph looks up at the previous one: look at all those nouns! And only one helpful link! I almost feel guilty every time I refer to anything without putting a link behind it.... meh. There are browser plug-ins you can use to find the things I'm "blogging". Just dump my posts into Google and see what comes up.

Mozilla 1.3 rocks my world. And people are doing amazing things with the malleability of the interface. Sidebars, bookmarklets, user stylesheets, tabbed browsing, blogzilla, RSS... for the love of God, Montresor, you can bookmark searches of your bookmarks!

And with Mozilla + Guidescope, I almost never see *any* advertising. Mozilla kills most of the popups/popunders, and then when they do make it through, Guidescope has blocked the ad image, so it's blank. :D

Tabbed browsing load-in-background plus no ads means I'm so spoiled I can just barely tolerate using vanilla IE on someone else's PC.

But then, my mouse is wired backwards, too. No one at work tries to use my computer -- I think they're scared off by the triple-flatscreen showing Windows' standard starscape screensaver.

More socialization is most welcome, though I think I'll be at soupwhatever this weekend.

Tonight I was implored to go to soupwhatever. I was assured I would find something I've lost. What do you think? What should I bring?
