I’m a Mozilla firefox man. The Firefox browser is superior to IE in almost every possible way with the exception of load speed. I can often go get a cup of coffee, read a journal and do a little Economics homework in the time it takes for the browser to open.
However, once the little guy gets running it’s a clever piece of software. The add-ins are, for me, the winning element. Blog-This, Blogger and Stumble are all favorites when I’m procrastinating on assignments. Lately, thanks to being inside 90% of the time working on projects, avoiding 2006s looking to dump work or group meetings the little weather indicator on the bottom right side of the browser serves as my window to the world.
Right now for instance, it is raining in London with a possibility of sun. Since I’m in a windowless room most of the time, this is key information. I may have to find a little plug-in that tells me about other events in the world that doesn’t include NPV, elasticity or my group’s feelings. It’s probably out there but not yet plugged into my little browser.
I have three minutes before my economics test takes priority — hmm, what to write …
1. I love seeing how people are reacting to the increase in stress and lack of sleep. There’s a girl in my stream that has a 2:1 sleep to awake ratio. Not too bad. In her defense she’s really active when awake.
2. I officially started recruiting for the Summer & Winter Events committee. Until this point, this entire thing was just a few notes and long discussions. Now we’re finally moving forward.
3. Best comment from a professor (actually there are two):
a. Thank you for that, now that you have had your airtime, we’ll move on.
b. Your comment has actually made the class more confused.
4. I’m bummed that I can’t get my Blogger plug-in to work with Word because I use word as my email editor. ugh.
Same prof – names have been omitted to protect the innocent.
If you’re reading this and not related to me, where do you find the time?
