Quotage

Thursday, September 22nd, 2005

‘Times New Roman’ is so 27BC. It’d only take one line of css to get something with class. Like ‘Comic Sans MS’. Everyone loves ‘Comic Sans MS’.

That one deserves to go down in the history books.

Bug 192891 was fixed! Woohoo!

Mozilla, Virii, Slashdot

Wednesday, September 21st, 2005

Argh, Slashdot got hold of the virus in the Korean contributed builds of Mozilla and Thunderbird. I was on IRC at the time they were discussing this, and I remember my first thought being “I hope slashdot doesn’t hear about this.”. And they didn’t even note the fact that those were contributed builds, not mozilla.org official ones, nor that ClamAV has now been installed, nor that the list of people with upload rights was already in the process of being reduced, to prevent just this kind of thing in the future.

*Sigh.* Time to go clarify the situation there…

Update: Slashdot seems to have gotten it into its collective head that the infected files weren’t hosted on mozilla.org at all. This is, of course, wrong, but if they’re thinking that, then I’m far too lazy to correct them.

Work

work n.

Anything that you do that you would prefer to have already done.

(“Have” being a verb, not “have already done” being the past perfect of “do”.)

P.S.: What’s the proper way to mark this entry up?

The End is Near!

Thursday, September 8th, 2005

I have two questions:

First, comic strips are often self referential with their humor. (example) Does anyone know of any novel-type books that do the same?

Second, of those, are there any that have a character proclaiming doomsday as you reach the finish? “The end is near!”

Now back to more productive random curiosities…
