I hate being gone for a week at a time:
- My head asplode
- My inbox asplode
- Support tickets asplode
And I’m only here today, and then leave again tomorrow for camp, round 2. This one should be more fun though… all-night Risk games and LAN partying. (Not that last week wasn’t fun; it was great. But playing in the band every day gets a little old.)
Nate and I stayed in the new house last night. It doesn’t creak and make weird noises like our old one, which is a nice feature. I also set up my new LCD monitor. It just makes you smile to look at it… so big! It can do picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture, DVI, D-Sub, Composite and S-Video connections, woo
And now off to do computer jobs and band practice so I can be useful before I leave again…
I found a new Firefox theme, Azerty. It’s been climbing the ranks like mad at u.m.o and I decided to download it. I visited the author’s site and found that it was all in French, which was no problem for me, but the only translation available was via Google Translate.
A note near the bottom said
I thank all the encouraging remarks from Mozilla.org.
If a bilingual person could translate the nuances of the
French language of this site I will be grateful.
So I sat down, and about 30 minutes later, had a (fairly) decent transliteration of the web page
I had trouble when I came to “navigation par onglets”; it was the only word I hadn’t heard before. So I popped onto #ubuntu-fr IRC and asked, in French, if someone could explain to me what onglets were. In French, they replied “Onglets are why Firefox is great and Internet Explorer sucks… you don’t use windows to surf.” Ah ha, tabs!
Some of you reading this post will be doing so through the newest syndication method for my blog and others: Planet InvisionFree. In creating the Planet, we had a few goals in mind:
- Provide an easier way to read the dozen-plus staff blogs
- Increase readership of our blogs, and insodoing,
- help you to get to know the faces behind the badges a little better
The Planet was also created because I’m lazy. But we don’t talk about that one.
So if you’re reading this via Planet, welcome! You’ll get to know the InvisionFree staff better. If you’re not reading via Planet, go check it out! The variegated personalities here are sure to entertain you.

We closed on our new house yesterday. It’s about 1000 ft2 bigger than this one, and 30 years newer. Once we clean it up, it’s going to be lots of fun moving stuff in and setting it all up
I’ll put up pictures soon. The photo gallery may just go MIA… maybe I’ll move to Flickr…
