Bits ‘n pieces

Firefox 1.5 is trickling down the mirrors, so it should hit the main page at any minute now. I’ve steered clear of all the betas and RCs for once so I’m looking forward to grabbing this one, hoping the bump in numbering is a sign of good things.

I’ve also signed up at Technorati which is sort of the blog grapevine. At first I went meh to see the rank for was 231236. Only later I read that they track over 22 million blogs, so hey, not bad at all. And I’ve only just begun.

10. ‘That’s weird…’
9. ‘It’s never done that before.’
8. ‘It worked yesterday.’
7. ‘You must have the wrong version.’
6. ‘It works, but it hasn’t been tested.’
5. ‘Somebody must have changed my code.’
4. ‘Did you check for a virus?’
3. ‘Where were you when the program blew up?’
2. ‘Why do you want to do it that way?’

and finally …

So familiar, only missing my standard reply to PEBKAC users:
“It’s because of atmospheric interference”


A new website for AmigaOS4.0 has been launched, this time by Hyperion.
I lost track of all the drama in the past year but this is really shaping up like a second Duke Nukem Forever.
E.T.A: no bloody clue.

Such a shame, part of me still wants to believe, even after all these years.

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
