Blogger Web Comments for Firefox

This is awesome. A Firefox extension that puts a little notifier listing comments that bloggers have made on the current page. Kinda like a mashup of StumbleUpon and Technorati. Anyway should be helpful in assessing the trustworthiness of any given page.


ideas for a rainy day

- listen to poetry
- walk up christmas hill or around swan lake
- take the bus somewhere new
- play the guitar, violin, or piano

Task '****** - Sending' reported error (0x8004210B) : 'The operation timed out waiting for a response from the sending (SMTP) server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

Was getting the error above accessing GMail with Outlook. Solved by installing Office XP Service Pack 3. W00t!

living the dream

I am currently living the dream - I am wifi-ing it from a starbucks for the first time. Yay for me!

observation - MySpace generation. I feel old - I'm at the tail end of this.

How it feels

The body and the arms limp, unfeeling
The soul empty, guilty, afraid
The mind blunted, imprecise
The heart calloused and shrunken
That is how it feels

Then hope comes from remembering what needs us
And courage from a belief in forgiveness

Tomorrow we will begin fresh
No not tomorrow - tonight
Tonight we will begin

Trying to think of a good easy way to get exercise. I don't enjoy
running or working out. I'm going to try brisk morning walks. There is
a beautiful nature sanctuary near my place.
