This post will be slightly geeky – but only slightly.
Firefox 3.0 was released last week. If you haven’t downloaded and installed it then you should. The main thing that the ordinary user will notice is that it shows pages faster than version 2, but there are a number of other advantages in using it too.
WordPress (the software I use to run this blog) have announced that version 2.6 will be released soon. This looks as though it will be a great step forward as it will allow for more easy upgrades of the software in future as well as better handling of plugins. Talking of plugins, I’ve just installed Amazon Reloaded for WordPress which makes it easier for me to include links to things on the Amazon website. You won’t notice much difference (although I will be able to post more pictures of book covers) but it will save me more than five minutes everytime I post a link to Amazon – which is great news!
Lastly, I’ve just started using MS OneNote 2007 to keep my thoughts and ideas in order. When I was running it just from my laptop it worked really well, but now that I’m trying to share a notebook on our network drive, my laptop has slowed to a crawl – this happens even when the laptop is working offline. That probably didn’t make much sense to you, but if it did and you can help please let me know!
