An introduction

This is a semi-public place to dump text too flimsy to even become a blog post. I wouldn't recommend reading it unless you have a lot of time to waste. You'd be better off at my livejournal. I also have another blog, and write most of the French journal summaries at the Eurozine Review.

Why do I clutter up the internet with this stuff at all? Mainly because I'm trying to get into the habit of displaying as much as possible of what I'm doing in public. Also, Blogger is a decent interface for a notebook

Firefox: TINA

Becoming increasingly infuriated by firefox eating up a disproportionate amount of my computer's time. Alternatives, though, seem limited:
- Chromium: best of the alternatives, but has largely-dysfunctional text searching.
- Opera: still around, still not very good on a small screen
- flock: built on firefox, but with more stuff on top of it
- galeon: not even installable in ubuntu, for some reason
- uzbl: nice idea, gaping usability/discoverability problems

..and so I return grudgingly to firefox :(
