Firefox 3

Posted in Technology on October 11th, 2008 by James

So I finally broke down and installed Firefox 3 here at work. Not sure why. Maybe cause I don’t have admin rights to install the latest version of Opera.

So my thoughts on Firefox. Wow it’s really came along over the years. Doesn’t seem to be slow, and sluggish like previous version of FF.

But I’m still a Opera lover. Opera for life. But it’s nice to see that FF hasn’t crashed on me for the few hours I’ve been running it. But damn, this restarting FF each time I add a new plugin is getting OLD!!!

My New Internet Connection

I downgraded my internet service about a month ago. Far from the fastest. But hey, the price is right, and it’s faster then dial up.

You may have been using Linux too much when…

Comcast ISP Bandwidth Test

Comcast+New Wireless Nic

Posted in Technology on March 2nd, 2008 by James

Got Comcast again at the new apartment, just got a new wireless NIC also, so I don’t have to run cat5 cable across the living room. Benchmark of the speed test.

Wireless NIC I got from Best Buy last night.

Opera 9.20

New Opera version, 9.20. Here is the changelog for the new version. The two seconds I’ve played around with it. I really like the new speed dial feature. Pretty stupid name, but really dig it.

Evanston

Posted in Technology, Work on February 9th, 2007 by James

Blah, I’m ready to go home from work. Only got 45 minutes left. Work hasn’t been bad today. Justine had/has an interview for a job up in the sleep lab up in Evanston, Wy. It’s suppose to be tomorrow, but it looks like it’s gonna be in a week from today. She is pretty sick, so she reschdule it. The lady doing the interview seems to be impressed by Justine so far. Throws a big ol wrench into my whole job situation. I really enjoy the full time job down in Orem. But it’s 100 miles according to mapquest from Evanston to Orem. It’s not just the drive that I have to take into thought. But it’s 3 hours a day, 15 hours a week sitting in a car. Gas prices aren’t the best (better then a few months ago). I could just see that getting old really fast. Maybe just for a short period of time, till I find work up there. hahaahaha, I got looking online, there isn’t shit up there in terms of work. Who knows when I would find a job that could offer the same/better up in Evanston. Plus it’s winter. Winter driving of 100 miles won’t be cool either. I hope I could work something out with them. It all depends on how Justine’s interview goes, what they are willing to offer, etc etc. Money should be the same, if not more.

Appears that there is a crack going around for Microsoft Vista. I think I just may give that a try. But installing a new OS is alot of work. XP is running great for me right now, I got no reason to mess with it.

I really wish James would stop calling me every 30 minutes asking if I’m going to buy his a video game when I get home tonight from work.
