Daily Grind: Thankful

Name: Vin (aka groovy truvy)
How Vin feels today: Thankful @ 1:50:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: To enjoy a lovely three-day weekend without anything at work breaking down unexpectedly. Proceed to knock on wood several times since having typed that.

Music Stuck in Head: Pleasant Valley Sunday / The Monkees
I never knew know that Carole King had a hand in penning this tune. Thanks, Wikipedia.

Stuff to do today:

  • Note awesomeness of LeechBlock add-on for Firefox
  • Basically you can set up a list of sites to block so you can concentrate on whatever it is you're doing and not surf the web aimlessly
  • Facebook = blocked
  • For you Mac people there's this little gem: Concentrate
  • Of course, these add-ons and programs only apply if you seem to have constant diversionary problems
  • I'm not saying that I have these said problems, but hey - the Internet is a big place and there's lots to read
  • Stop making excuses for social networking addiction

Wondering which version of The Beatles remasters you should be buying?Wondering which version of The Beatles remasters you should be buying?

The post contains samples of both the mono and stereo versions (which is quite nice) as well as the reasoning as to why there are multiple versions of said remasters.

Firefox 3.5 officially released and available for your upgrading pleasure.Firefox 3.5 officially released and available for your upgrading pleasure.

According to Mozilla, Firefox 3.5 is more than twice as fast as Firefox 3, and ten times as fast as Firefox 2. It would appear that speed is the name of the game with this update. I like speed, speed is good.
