My Dad’s Tablet PC

After his Tablet PC broke, and was sent off for repair, I knew I’d have a whole lot of software to reinstall when it came back. So I ordered a DVD/CDRW drive for his docking station from Misco. During the phone call I was told it’ll take 3-5 days as the item was out of stock, but this morning it turned up way ahead of its scheduled delivery date. Very impressive!

I’ve spent almost all day reinstalling EVERYTHING from Windows XP, to Office, to all the hardware driver updates it requires.

Almost done! I hope!!

Firefox 1.0 RC1

We’re getting closer to the final release! \o/

I installed RC1 tonight, and discovered a few of my extensions were disabled automatically. Easily fixed though, by editing extensions.rdf and changing the maxversion of the offending extensions to 1.0 from 0.10. I’ll be so glad when they release the final version, and get rid of the stupid 0.10 version number completely.

Whose idea was it anyway to go from 0.93 to 0.10? In the real world that’s a BACKWARDS step!

I won’t give a link to the RC, as it’s not being pushed by the Mozilla Foundation, 1.0PR is still the main release.

Kelbie Gets Pwned!

While I was in Canada this summer, I met loads of new friends… people from the IRC Channel #Hottub on DALnet.

I would have to say that the all-time funniest moment of 2004’s Hottub Party involved DougE naked, and the phrase “but I’ve been a good boy”.

This however was a close second:

Firefox NY Times Ad

Just donated $60 to the campaign, and should have my name in the paper 😉 I just hope Pam can get me a copy on the day so I’ll actually be able to see it for myself!

Want to donate to the cause and get your name in the paper too? Head over to then!


I’ve finally inserted my sidebar onto all my blog pages, instead of just the main index. Should be much easier to get around now, plus it all looks the same. Which is nice.
