So far no problems today. Much better.

Good. We had about 100 legitimate comments held back in a two day period, with only 6 spam comments caught. It would be an understatement to say that was unacceptable.

In other geeky news, I've always been pretty happy with Internet Explorer. But recently it has been just freezing and closing for no reason. I moved to firefox, and while I don't see it as being any better in terms of features (at least of the ones I've discovered) it doesn't crash.

Happy Holidays to everyone, inshallah.

The big plus for me about firefox is that when it crashes mid-comment, I get my comment back when I re-open firefox.

(That may be a big minus for everyone else in the blogosphere, but...)

Terry's chocolate orange or Terry's peppermint orange? I say peppermint.

I tried Firefox for a few months, but was happy to return to Opera. Much nicer browser imho.

I miss Terry's chocolate lemons.

Let's put Saturn back in Saturnalia!

Does anybody know what happened to thepoorman.net?

There was a chocolate lemon? Damn.

I haven't been able to make thepoorman.net resolve for ages. I can't remember if I've even seen Sifu Tweety over at Unfogged, either.

This is awesome.

i crash FF at least once a day.

Happy Holidays to all.

Thanks, Sebastian, for fixing the Typepad problem.

I especially like that you used one of my comments as a "just testing" on the other thread and concluded basically that "if this baloney can make it through the filters, then what's everyone complaining about?"

Ugh:

That is kind of cool that the Lakotas have withdrawn from their treaty and have set up their own country. They offer tax-free status to anyone who joins them as long the person gives up their American citizenship.

I'm trying to picture Larry Kudlow and Grover Norquist chewing on buffalo jerky, riding bareback, and running the roulette table at the Lakota Casino.

Maybe Dick Armey will move home from the Marianas and set up some low wage labor enclaves. Plus, it would funny to watch the Armey join the Indians.

When does the bombing start?

Happy, Healthy Holidays and Kyippy New Year to all.

I won't retype the whole thing here but I did a LiveJournal post with links to YouTube videos where folks edited and sped up music videos to fit Weird Al Yankovic's polka party compilations.

Also, a collection of links to videos using Yakety Sax (the music of the Benny Hill end credits) and footage from Lord of the Rings, or The Shining, or Saving Private Ryan, or whatever.

Regarding Firefox, one word: AdBlock. A couple days of browsing with AdBlock installed, and you find yourself asking "Why isn't this a standard feature in all browsers?" Astounding how much more quickly many pages load when you don't have to wait for some overloaded ad server to deliver content you don't want to see anyway.

For me, the worst thing about the spam filter suddenly disapproving my comments (for, if I had to guess, excessive length) was that I struggled with modifying and resubmitting my comment several times, gave up ... and the next day found that all my nearly-identical comments had been added to the thread. Thus, the spam filter had actually generated spam.

Of course, it's not called an anti-spam filter ...

It's a wonderful internet!

Lippy Ho Ha Days!

"A couple days of browsing with AdBlock installed, and you find yourself asking "Why isn't this a standard feature in all browsers?""

Not so mysterious when you look at how many "features" of html are there for the benefit of anybody BUT the one doing the surfing. (I want my browser to be able to disable right clicks on command? News to me!) It appears the programmers writing most browsers view the websites, and not the people visiting them, as the end users.

Mass media technology in being primarily designed for delivering advertisements to demographic segments shocker!!!

"I moved to firefox, and while I don't see it as being any better in terms of features (at least of the ones I've discovered) it doesn't crash."

The key features are the add-ons, Sebastian. You put it together yourself, picking those you like. Stuff like Tab Mix Plus, PDF Download, Flashgot, Adblock, AutoCopy, and so on. And keep auto-updating on.

I wonder if we can persuade the Narragansetts to do the same thing in Rhode Island. Now that would be awesome.
