Good bye, foxytunes

I hope that future versions of FireFox are a bit more stable when an extension crashes. I really liked the idea of foxytunes... one thing I've been unhappy with iTunes is that it doesn't have a nice, small stay-on-top screen settings that can tell you basic info at a glance. So FoxyTunes was a good solution because I currently spend a vast majority of my time in front of the computer with FireFox pulled up. By putting a single line in FireFox that keeps tabs on iTunes, I didn't have to have that feature in iTunes.

Unfortunately, it's unreliable and causes too many FireFox crashes. It doesn't always update (although usually it's just a matter of pointing your mouse at it to tell it to wake up), but worse is when something happens in FireFox while iTunes changes songs... then I guess some sort of infinite loop must kick in because FireFox goes belly-up. That's all fine and annoying when I'm just cruising my usual websites, but when I'm writing an update, that's simply unacceptable (I like that word tonite, can you tell?).

I had what I thought was a pretty good entry going, too. But I hate re-writing entries, because it feels like I'm repeating myself, so I lose my chain of thought. And it shows. I don't do a lot of editting on these entries (you may have noticed), so in general, I really need a single continuous string of thought to write a good one (some interruptions are okay, but losing most of an entry is too much). I'll sum it up in a couple sentences: I called comcast for help getting the internet connected, after a considerable amount of time talking with the comcast tech support guy, it magically worked. I still don't know why. It was probably some obscure settings in some program I rarely or never use that was causing a glitch in the system. Perhaps I'll write the symptoms later, but there's not any great incentive because I don't have a solution. It just made a good story.

Ah, the joys of computers.

I sent your message to mom via email. What keeps blocking you? Is it the school actively blocking email accounts or what?

The school has a filter that is blocking all web based email and they found the one that I was using.

Just figured I would let who ever looks at this thing know that I got a new little puppy yesterday. It hopefully will grow into a big dog that will bark at anybody that goes by. Plus it gets happy anytime that I go outside to see it (it will not be living in the house). Well talk to you all later
