USA Bay was a nightmare

Firefox and RAM
Unlike Derek, I still use Firefox as my primary browser.  I tried Safari as my main browser for a couple of weeks after (finally) upgrading to OS X 10.4 not too long ago, but it ultimately just didn’t quite work with me the way I …

I won!
After only about a week of using it for 10 or so searches each day, I won a free ticket to the movies from Blingo, the Google search sweepstakes wrapper.  Their privacy policy looks good, and they gather no information from you unless you win.  …

More Cowbell
I have a fever…and the only cure is… Yep, the nonstop cowbells on the sidelines down the slope.  I have no idea why, but I have serious Olympic Fever this year.  I’ve always been moderately interested in the winter Olympics, as when I was young, …
