London, Baby!

I have to admit that I had doubts about going to London over the weekend, but nothing of all my worries came true at all. It was fun, the only thing that would have been nice was having more money to spend on just one weekend. As we are planning to move in almost a month we have to save some money for that already, so London was kinda expensive just to stay there.
Horrible how much you can spend on food there. We did not go to any restaurant or something like that, but we were hungry from running through the whole city...

London's calling

Tomorrow morning I will travel to London. In the last days I already had holidays and trying hard to not do anything except resting...
So for the weekend I will really have holidays with being not just at home but in another city, another country.

Maybe I should watch the "Friends" episodes in London tonight... ;-)

Firefox 2.0 Beta 2

Okay, you all already know that Firefox 2.0 Beta 2 has been released. And you may be as curious about it as I have been.
I am using Firefox on a non-Intel Mac and so it is kinda slow. The good news is that FF 2.0 is much faster than the 1.5 version on a Mac. The bad news is that there are not many compatible extensions (now called add-ons in FF 2.0) available. But not all of the not-compatible ones are really not compatible.
There is an add-on that makes it possible to use the the old extensions like Greasemonkey by disabling the default compatibility-check in Firefox: the Nightly Tester Tools add-on/extension.

But what about the awful look now? Firefox looks crappy and non of the other buttons match in size and shape. So, there already is a preview of the GrApple themes for the 2.0 version here.

So, everything seems to work for me now. I can get rid of a few extensions that are now already build into Firefox and it almost looks like it did before.

Test it yourself.
