Apollo 4 on column of fire

Opera ate my homework and the dog, too

Opera started crashing my X server and it ate my bookmarks and preferences. I haven’t made a tape backup in months and months.

Fortunately there was nothing there TRULY PRECIOUS. Just very, very convenient and organized. But I’ve GOT to ween myself off of that piece of closed-source garbage (that has sooooo many features just a click away ...)

Little facts

Did you know that ‘Firefox’ is an alternate name for the Red Panda?

The GNU version of Firefox is called IceCat. I don’t know what an Ice Cat is, other than a common name for a hockey team.

The Wolverine is also known as the Glutton. I probably knew that at one time, then forgot until I came across some photos of a en-zooed wolverine in a stock photo library I use. (I’ve had 15 credits to spend for some time, but haven’t used stock much or found anything compelling.)
