Flockalista

Saturday, October 22nd, 2005

Check out this new browser. It’s pre-beta right now, but I’m typing this on it, so if you’re reading it, it’s not too broken. Plus, it’s based on firefox, so most of it shouldn’t be hella unstable anyway.

It’s actually quite a bit like firefox, except it indexes your history so you can search it, allows you to use the same bookmarks everywhere via del.icio.us, provides aggregated RSS feeds for all the sites in a collection (bookmark folder), and has yummy tools for blogging things and adding things to flickr. It’s pretty cool, at any rate. I like it. You should try it, because I’m cool. You can be cool too.

That me staring back at me was creeping me out. I haven’t had time to really do anything about it, so I’m just replacing it with a scrawl for now. :)

Eh….On second thought…

Having a pair of almost-life-size eyes staring at you from a computer monitor is quite a bit more disconcerting than I’d figured. Especially if they’re your own. It’s kind of pretentious, somehow, too, what with the serious look and all. I’ll get that fixed up quick. The execution of the picture was okay, bordering on pretty good; it’s just that the concept sucks. :)

Got a new banner

Tuesday, October 4th, 2005

So I changed the background and the watermark. I like the new banner better–the old one was really just a placeholder that I never got around to replacing. The new one….well, it’s got my perty mug on it, so at least you know it’s my blog.

The watermark…the really pathetic thing about the watermark is that I’ve known for a long time that the transparent background rendered grey in IE, and looked like crap, but I never really cared. The new one is still sort of a placeholder, but it’s at least not as ugly.
