I have discovered the plan to have a blogcon in August in Las Vegas… It’s absolutely crazy.
I feel not at all a part of any sort of blog community. at least, not yet. The weird thing is that I kinda want to feel that way. It’s like a nagging social itch. People I want to meet, or email, or feel close to…
It’s rather strange, actually, because what I really used to crave was online colaboration. I remember doing various online projects with people, usually people I knew, but didn’t hang out with that much, or see that often.
I wonder how many blogs I can find from minneapolis or minnesota.
I have done very little at work lately asside from test out the new build of Mozilla, which kicks ass. There are three reasons I think it’s great. First, you can now use tabs to keep track of your open sessions (instead of windows). I’d change a couple of things abou this (for instance, you can’t right click on a tab and move it to a new window…) and I’d also like to be able to have a nice list of open tabs _and_ windows somewhere. Right now it’s just keeping track of windows under the “tasks” menu.
Finally, the last reason Mozilla is great is that you can now right click on banner ads and “Block images from this server”. Banner ads begone! I just feel kinda weird about it, because I really want to support some sites, by viewing their ads, or whatever it takes. So I hope I don’t accidentally block servers that also happen to serve ads to sites I like. (oh well if I do. ;)
There are some other things I don’t like so much about it (my mouse scroll-wheel doesn’t work with frames), but the typical complaints, (slow load times, bad rendering) seem like they’ve pretty much been taken care of. I did have it crash on me once in about 8 hours of use. Probably about as often as IE crashes… I can’t wait till there are hundreds of skins too!
