The Job Search Begins

March 16, 2007 at 8:35 am | Posted in Geek, General | Comments Off on The Job Search Begins

Well, I just got word that I need to find a job within my company as soon as possible.  I guess it is time to polish up the resume and cruising the Job boards.  Given the way the news was given to me, it is probably time to start looking outside the company.  I am hoping to make this a good career move instead of taking just anything to stay employed.  It is kind of scary to have to look for a job.  It has been almost 20 years since I had to look for a job.

Where did all the links go?

I have decided to spread the link love elsewhere.  I have decided to  keep this blog to the self-indulgent stuff I intended it to be.  You can find the links here.

Firefox Extensions Review – CoLT

July 9, 2006 at 6:28 am | Posted in Firefox Extensions, Geek | Comments Off on Firefox Extensions Review – CoLT

I began using CoLT (Copy Link Text) a short time ago and it now feels like a natural part of firefox. There are a number of times in my day to day work where I need to copy the text of a hyperlink and without this extension it is challenging mouse work to get it right. With this extenstion, I simply right click on the link and select “Copy Link Text”. I then have exactly what I want on the clipboard. I highly recommend CoLT.

You can get CoLT here

Firefox Extension Reviews – Google Browser Sync

July 6, 2006 at 6:14 am | Posted in Firefox Extensions, Geek | Comments Off on Firefox Extension Reviews – Google Browser Sync

I recently added Google Browser Sync to my growing list of extensions. I find it to be a very useful tool for working across multiple computers. To extend it’s usefulness even more, I have added it to the Portable Firefox I carry on a USB Memory Stick so I can have my firefox setting on any computer I use. You can get Google Browser Sync here. There are some drawbacks. It takes much longer to start and shutdown firefox. If you have to use it over dialup, it could be quite painful. If you do not trust Google with your information, this extension is not for you. This is because you are saving many of your Firefox settings, including saved passwords, on Google servers.

Overall, I think this is one of the most useful extensions I have and use everyday.
