Mozilla 1.0

Mozilla 1.0 is pretty spiffy. It plays very nice with Netscape settings (well, of course...) and isn't all territorial like IE is. It's skinnable, so I went and grabbed the "Pinball" theme, which looked like it had the smallest buttons and dingle-dangles. =)

You can tell Mozilla to not allow web pages to open unrequested windows (HAHAHA!!! DIE, POP-UP ADS, DIE DIE DIE!!), not allow changing and resizing existing windows, not allow someone else to change the layering order of your browser windows, not allow changing status bar text. It's great.

You can also open links in a new window or a new tab in the current browser window. This is most excellent. Now I can group my browser views... all my project links can go in separate windows and everything I need for one project will be in one place; all my LJ and personal reading links go in another window. I don't have a hillion-jillion windows open and there's only one process running =)

Now, if only I can rename the Tabs... but that's no big whoop, it's just the title of the webpage and there's not a lot you can do about that. You can't change the browser title bar anyway.

Woot! And it's really skookum on my Mac too. It's a bit slow, but I think that's because my Mac is too old... it's blazing fast on my P3. =P

First Project Marker

Sheesh, I'm a chatty-cathy today =)

I got my first project marker today for the PDF project! =) Weee! =)

Our company gives everyone a wooden block with slats cut in it and your name engraved on it. Every time you finish a project, you get a project marker - it's an engraved CD that has our company logo, the project code name, real name, client's name, date of release, and your name on it. The project marker CD goes in the slats of the wooden block.

I was joking that I better get my 100 markers. =) Heh, I should have 4 or 5 more by the end of this summer =D

When Husband Guy was working for this company in their last incarnation, project markers were an acrylic block with the company logo embedded in the middle of it. The company logo was done in 3-D with a copper plated chunk and it looked so cool just floating in the middle of nothing like that. The thing served as a really good paper weight, it was pretty heavy. His name was engraved onto a piece of copper and glued onto the front of the block. Every time he finished a project, the project info was engraved onto a piece of copper the same size and glued onto the block one after another.

Testing with iJournal 1.48. This finally started working! Yay! =)

Back in mid-May, this used to hang and time out on me. I thought I was doing something wrong, but I installed another LJ client by mounting the disk image exactly the same way and that one worked. So, I gave up on this. But I have more Client List padding now. =)

I need to get my grubby paws on a PDA...
