Shoulda Known

That was the season finale of House.  (Part 1 last week, part 2 today.)

But while the second half of the finale of House had some problems, it was better than Bones, which just spontaneously retroactively self-destructed through force of sheer boneheaded idiocy.

Bones doesn't so much jump the shark as skin the shark alive, boil the flesh from its cartilage, grind the cartilage into powder, make soup from the powder, feed the soup to hungry beetles, blend the beetles into porridge, and shoot the porridge into the Sun.

Can we have the writers' strike back, please?

Firefox 3

I thought they'd almost fixed the awful bar in beta 5; with RC1, it's back in all its craptastic glory.  It's the most completely worthless "enhancement" I've seen since Vista's "A program wants to do something!!!" nag screens.

In Firefox 2, if I want to go to Chizumatic, I type a c in the url bar.  That brings up Chizumatic (http://chizumatic.mee.nu), Cute Overload (http://cuteoverload.com) and other sites whose urls start with c.  I hit down arrow once or twice, and enter, and there I am.

In Firefox 3, the way it works is, well, it wipes all your history and doesn't do anything at all.  But after that, the way it works is, it brings up sites at random where the url or the title of the page or the name of the sites in your history or bookmarks or elsewhere in its tiny, confused mind, has a c in it somewhere.  Anywhere at all.  And displays two lines of text per site, so it wastes space and is much harder to read.

It's a complete pile of crap, and you can't set it back to the old way that actually worked.

Zero out of ten for style, and minus several million for good thinking.  Wonder if Innova Editor works in Opera yet...

Not Good, But Better

Found my lost first DVD of Card Captor Sakura.  (Following my last move I somehow ended up with volumes 2 through 18...)

Also my wallet.

Aigh! Bastiges!

Really good episode of House this week.  Right up until it stops.

Darn two-parters.

On A Happier Note

SoftLayer, the company where I host mu.nu and mee.nu, has announced a content delivery network they call CDNLayer.  It has an API that I can easily integrate into Minx so that I can distribute static (and eventually, semi-static) files to 21 locations around the world.  Admittedly, 15 of those are in North America and kind of pointless because that's where the servers are located anyway, but the others are in London, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney.

Bandwidth charges are a little steep, but storage is free, and the account fee is only $20 a month.  Definitely something I'll be trying out.
