Devil told me to smite thirty-five religious fundamentalists with lettuce, alleges porn star

  • TODAY IS INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY. SO I SHOULD REALLY DO THE REST OF THIS POST IN CAPS BUT I’LL SAVE YOU THE TORTURE.
  • The final version of Firefox 2.0 is out on Tuesday, apparently. I really do like the new features and it’s been getting some good reviews – it’s even managed to steal Internet Explorer 7’s fire somewhat. The new theme on OS X is starting to grow on me – originally I wasn’t keen but I’m liking it more now that I’m used to it.
  • Yesterday I revisited Assault on Thirteenth Labour, a grid computing project to crack an encrypted code on a card in the Perplex City set. I had used it some time ago (and was quite impressed at how it was able to run in Mono on OS X despite being developed for .Net on Windows) and wanted to see what progress has been made. It’s still not cracked yet, and it proved a good opportunity to put my MacBook’s second processor core to use for a while.
  • Talking of recently revisited software, I gave Democracy player another spin. I don’t tend to watch video podcasts so it’s of little use to me, but it does have a nice interface and seems very easy to use. A new version has recently been released, too.
  • My dad has now joined the iPod generation with the purchase of a 2 GB silver iPod Nano. He seems to like it but is having trouble filling it – he can’t comprehend how someone can fill an 80 GB one, never mind 2 GB.
  • The title of this post was created by Random Tabloid Headline Generator, by the way. I’m not a porn star and the devil didn’t order me to smite thirty-five religious fundamentalists. And besides, I’d run out of lettuce.

  1. I think some of the comments on the linked post about Firefox and Tuesday has some comments that should be here.

  2. Hmm, struggling to fill a 2Gig iPod?

    Right.
    I’m guessing I’m not going to see Firefox 2.0. I’m hoping for Ice Weasel 2.0 to be released before too long though.
