Updated my laptop

and, it had been a while. I had taken it into the office, with the intent to work on a problem that I couldn't seem to solve using any of the 4 computers I have in my cubicle.

Aside from lack of updates to various parts of it....the battery in it had completed self discharged. In fact I was worried it would recharge. The days for this laptop are probably numbered....it'll probably move to where I'll find a corner to stick, and leave it on all the time to throw more cycles at BOINC.

At the same time, I think I could use a laptop as a laptop. Though the old laptop is kind of showing its age....which makes it hard to use a laptop. Most of the time, I want it to do some impulse web surfing....but it takes forever to become available after being re-awakened. Even longer if I have to reboot, which seems inevitable because there'll be at least a few updates from Microsoft to make it run slow and then force me to reboot.

But, I have the work laptop...and if I were to get a new personal laptop...I seem to be leaning towards getting a better of the same (MacOSX)....and I think I want to get a desktop first....or rather that HTMac idea I've been tossing around for a long time.

Firefox 2.0 upgrade continues

Well, the upgrade went acceptably...sure I'm missing a few favorite extensions...but I can live without those at work. Not sure what I'll do should I get around to things at home....

I then installed it on my Sun workstation (Ultra 20, Solaris 10/x86), and that's all happy. I changed the gnome panel button to launch it, instead of mozilla.

And, then to complete the transition, I upgraded the browser on my MacBookPro.

I suppose for real completeness, I might see about upgrading or installing it on my work Linux box...though I don't use it for such....so I'll probably leave it at whatever was stock for RHEL4AS.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
