Firefox 1.5 RC2 Released

It’s been one year since Firefox 1.0 was released and we’re one step closer to 1.5 with the release of Release Candidate 2 this afternoon. If you’re running one of the betas or RC1, you should upgrade now (Help -> Check for Updates) or download the latest release. If all goes well, 1.5 final should be released within a week or two.

Wasted Weekend

Well the trip to Michigan ended up being pretty unproductive 😛

We left from the boathouse Friday around 4pm and drove about an hour to Janesville for some food. We stopped at an all-you-can eat place and completely destroyed the place within an hour. After that we drove for another 4 hours or so through Chicago and around the base of Lake Michigan stopping in Benton Harbor for the night. In the morning we went to a McDonalds that was across from the parking lot from us. The employees basically freaked out once we (60 people) had packed in and were standing in line – it took over 40 minutes to complete all of our orders. It took about 3 hours of driving after breakfast to get to Wyandotte and once we got there, we unloaded the trailer, rigged the boats and went out and practiced for about an hour…

Must win…

I need ideas!!

Nice Day

It’s 62 degrees now, which means it’s t-shirt weather! It’s a great change from the mid-40’s and tomorrow is supposed to be almost 70! It’s a shame I still feel like crap, but the nice weather makes it a little easier to bear. School is going alright for now, although I now have to make up an exam because I slept through my alarm this morning XP

I found out today that we’ll be leaving for Michigan at 3:30pm on Friday and that since I’ve got a clean driving record, my coach wants me to drive a van. Of course doing this requires that I fill out a few forms and have them notarized – of course the only notary that’s close by is only open between 11am and 2pm Mon – Thur… which means I get no lunch tomorrow because that’s the only time I have free. 😐

And yes I realize I’ve made 3 entries in the past 24 hours, I’m trying to see how well the feed aggregator handles it.
