About Mooquackwooftweetmeow

Hi! This is Mooquackwooftweetmeow, a collection of stuff by Greg K Nicholson.

It's a Weblog Entry!

OK, so the normal service has been a bit thin on the ground. Aaanyway... I'm back off to university tomorrow (Sunday); any new text and/or other whatnot will appear at Mooquackwooftweetmeow B, my university webspace.

Meanwhile

It took them four years, but this Christmas the people in charge finally cottoned on to the idea of putting two and two together, where the first two is a lot of homeless people in London and the second two is an empty Millennium Dome.

Over in Mozillaland...

Some guys decided to call Firefox 1.0 for a change. It seems to have worked. Then some other guys did the same with Thunderbird; that also worked reasonably well. And then roughly 20 million people downloaded them and they saw that they were good. And they divided the Firefox and the Thunderbird from the other applications; the Firefox and the Thunderbird they called cool! and the other applications they called less so. And lo Internet Explorer became without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of its developers. And Bill said let there be users but there were no users, for they saw that it was bad. And the grace of web standards be with us all. Amen.

Or something like that.

And in Operaworld...

They made a browser that can talk like an American, but it still insists on trying to sell me things I don't want, and I can't stop the browser or webpages from doing it. I guess they're firmly targetting users who can't see.

Oh! And...

It's 2005, you know - happy new year to everyone.

About this entry

What - the title isn't descriptive enough?

I published this entry on 8 January 2005 when I should've been asleep. That means this is pretty old. Beware parachronisms.
