ex machina

i noticed on that the 0.94 branch has been officially released. nice stuff, including the ability to disable pop-up/pop-under ads:
"I have just checked in a little hack that disables the call during onLoad and onUnload events, top-level scripts, and timeouts. This should block 99% of pop-up or pop-under ads out there on the Web while still allowing a page to open a window in response to a mouse click. It'll be in today's trunk builds and on the 0.9.4 branch. To turn on this feature, add this line to your prefs.js file (be sure to exit Mozilla before editing prefs.js or your changes will be overwritten):

user_pref("dom.disable_open_during_load", true);"
it's amazing how much more pleasant it makes your browsing experiences. it looks like slashdot is discussing [sic] the merits of the release.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
