Dress-up your Firefox

I just stumbled across a Mozilla Labs project called Personas. It’s light-weight theming for Firefox that can be changed without restarting the browser. After you install Personas, you get a new menu entry Tools->Personas for Firefox, where you can quickly change the persona you are using. From what I can tell, Personas seem to change the your browser toolbar and menu font colors and usually add a lightweight background picture. According to the website, the project has been going since Dec 2007, so there’s a lot of Personas to choose from.

Grooveshark -- Listen to Free Music

Grooveshark – Listen to Free Music. Just found this website tonight for playing music online for free. It’s a community based service where you can have friends to share music with. It’s kind of like Last.fm andPandora, but with a much nicer interface. It seems to load very quickly and the music seems like decent quality.

New Stats Plugin

So I figured what the heck, I might as well install some stats software if I ever plan on updating my blog. So, I just installed a Google Analytics plugin. Of course, I’ll have to wait a bit for it to start showing some stats.

What the Flock?

My last post was my first in a long time with the Flock browser’s blog editor. It has a feature that you can drag and drop images into your post and also into a section it calls ‘webclips’. I assumed that this would use the WP API to upload the image to my server when I published the post. Unfortunately, it just directly linked the image from the Gentoo website. This is very sad, because I’m sure a lot of people are using this thing to post to their blog, and they don’t realize they are stealing bandwidth from the servers that they grabbed the images from.
