ex machina

mozilla 1.2b has been released with many interesting enhancements , including the much talked about "type ahead find" . personally, i'm not so sure i see the benefits of "type ahead find" over regular ol' find, but maybe i just haven't played with it enough. thankfully, everything seems a bit more stable on jaguar and i'm back to crash-free browsing. the install broke my orbit theme , but that's o.k. because i installed the new version and was pleasantly surprised to see that it now comes with new and improved, smaller widgets. woohooo.

all this comes on the heels of me becoming more and more of a fan of chimera on os x. there's a boatload of functionality and components in the application that i just don't use [ i.e. composer ] and am slowly getting to enjoy the latest chimera nightlies . two points are keeping me from switching over completely. chimera now happily imports mozilla bookmarks, but doesn't easily export them back into the native mozilla format. import sans export always makes me nervous. i guess i don't understand why i can't define an url to my regular mozilla bookmarks and just share the same bookmarks between the two applications. secondly, despite howls of laughter from the peanut gallery, i'm going to admit to liking mozilla's e.mail component. i have high hopes for thunderbird - the stripped-down mail component which is being spearheaded by blake ross . why don't i just use the os x mail app ? because its support for message threading sucks.

"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.
