Funny

So I get a letter from the program I was at last summer at Penn with their new brochure! Here's the front cover that they send out to like trillians of people:



How cool is that? It's a good picture, too; it's from my final presentation (we won!). Go ePack!



Also, yesterday was the two-year anniversary of Rhymes With Sammy, so whoooooppeeee.

Firefox Extensions

Well, this is kind of a random post, but maybe some one will find it useful.

I'm hopeful that everyone reading this already uses firefox, rather than internet explorer or opera, but, if not, switch asap (www.getfirefox.com)

One cool thing about firefox is that you can add 'extensions' which are little add-ons that users make and post on the firefox website. They're very useful, so I thought I'd post my favorites so people can download them if you want. Just hit download, and firefox takes care of the installing, etc. It's really very easy. In no particular order:

1. ForecastFox - this adds a little thing on the empty bar at the bottom of the broswer which gives a little, unobtrusive three-day forecast (through pictures-- sun, sun with clouds, snow, etc.). It's very useful.

2. IE View - this allows you to open a tab of internet explorer within firefox for those annoying websites which are ie only, for example, microsoft.com.

3. Disable Blank Targets - some website (read: gmail attachments) open up a blank new window sometimes when you click on links. This gets rid of that.

4. Cute Menus - just aethetic. Makes your menus much better looking.

5. Gmail delete button - this is pretty cool just because it shows how powerful firefox is. this extention actually adds a button to gmail that says delete. i like this so i can more easily delete junk mail and facebook notifications. And it looks exactly like all the other buttons in the gmail interface.

6. Google Page Rank - just cool. Next to where your weather forecast is, this extention shows you google page rank. It's a 0-10 system that is supposed to show you how credible/important a site is. And it's just kind of fun.

7. FoxyTunes - This adds iTunes or windows media player seamlessly into the firefox interface. Very useful and looks very nice. A little better than just using the iTuens mini-player, I think.


Anyway, maybe someone will enjoy this. I know i do. It's worth looking through the other extensions on the firefox page. They also give you 'themes' which make the whole firefox interface look nice. I switch between foru or five. Maybe it anyone finds this useful, at some point I'll post those.

1,000 Comments

Well, since I dropped the ball on my 400th post (by not realizing I was doing it), I figured I should at least post my comment statistics once it gets to 1,000. LiveJournal says that I've received 1,064 comments, but for some reason this weird program only counts 1,000 of them. So, at least it's easy to calculate percentages.

See my comment statisticsCollapse )

Special thanks to Erik, Odin, Ingrid, and Michael for their commentfulness (and it had nothing to do with the comment post, I swear).

Survival Football

For all you football lovers or people who know nothing about football but want to try, I created a survival football league.

It's basically the simplest form of fantasy sports in the history of mankind.

Each week you pick one team who you say will win their match. If they win, you move on to the next week. If they lose, you're out FOREVER. Last person in wins. You can only pick each team once, so you can't like pick the pats every week. Even if you know nothing, it will be fun. Make a funny name!
