Firefox & Thunderbird

I knew this day was coming. If you can believe it, I was still using Netscape Navigator 7.2 for most of my internet browsing & as my email client. Compared to IE (Microsoft Internet Explorer) Navigator was much more stable, fault tolerant and had a cleaner & easier to use interface. Navigator didn't have all those unused toolbars at the top of the window that you couldn't get rid of.

Alas, more & more web sites had new features that wouldn't work. Netscape no longer supports Navigator, so it's time to change. :?

After downloading the Mozilla Firefox browser and Thunderbird email client, I installed them without a hitch. In fact they both automatically imported everything from Netscape! 8) All my bookmarks, saved passwords, history, email addys, accounts, folders & filters. Both programs even kinda look the same, and they allow you to get rid of toolbars that you don't use, to clean up your window. :mrgreen:

As I type this, Firefox is automatically spell checking, underlining suspicious words in red. Very cool! 8)8)

Impatiently waiting for my next load. One more load to get me to Fontana, then I GO HOME!

It's been almost 7 weeks this time. Had to schedule it so I could be home when my niece Samantha is going to be born! :mrgreen:8):mrgreen:

If you haven't seen the movie There Will Be Blood, you're missing something good! :) Very few movies can get away with going 14 minutes before the first line of dialog is said. You have to watch it a few times to catch all the details.

Sitting in Nogales, AZ. Got here about 0315 this morning. They don't open till 1000. :? As long as I get home on time, I don't care.

Sitting in Barstow, CA right now. It's where we are switching drivers. Our load can't deliver before 0800 tomorrow morning, so we're sitting here so I don't start my '14 hour clock' and get my hours messed up.

5 best things to say if you get caught sleeping at your desk:

5. "They told me at the Blood Bank this might happen."

4. "This is just a 15 minute power nap they raved about in the time Management course you sent me to."

3. "Whew! Guess I left the top off the Whiteout. You probably got here just in time."

2. "Did you ever notice sound coming out of these keyboards when you put your ear down real close?"

And the NUMBER ONE best thing to say if you get caught sleeping at your desk...

1. Raise your head slowly and say, "...in Jesus' name, Amen."

(Thanks, Cow Boss Jim)

Currently I'm laid over in Orlando, FL, waiting for a load out. That wouldn't be so bad, except that there is a AES (Amateur Electronic Supply) in Orlando. It is easily & legally truck accessible. :o 8) :shock: (good when you need something, bad for my wallet!)

I am now the proud owner of a Heil ProSet 5

I can, without exaggeration, say that this headset is the most amazing audio experience of my life! I plugged it in to my computer to play a few mp3's to try them out. I had no idea. I heard things, harmonies, fingers hitting strings, even little mistakes. All things that were covered by poor audio reproduction. Wow! With these headphones I can tell the difference between a digital & analog mastered recording.

I can't say enough about them. I can't wait to try them on my Kenwood TS-480HX. :mrgreen:

Of course, I also bought a few other tools & books & stuff.

Don't ask how much I spent! :shock:

This was automatically translated by Google from the original Portuguese news story, then I cleaned it up some to make it readable.
Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Much has been spoken of the risks involving the use of mobile phones at gas stations. Here, the situation was even more serious because the employee was preparing the truck for the unloading of fuel and opened the mouth of truck tank and illuminated the interior with his phone (observe when he takes the phone of the pocket). Well, phones are not explosion-proof equipment, a small spark generated by the press of the key was sufficient. His clothes caught fire by being impregnated with fumes from gasoline. He died three days later. Note that the hose was already connected to the underground tank.

Less than 2 weeks now before I get to go home!
:mrgreen:8):mrgreen:8):mrgreen:
I'll be home for a week starting April 19th. That's just a few days short of 7 weeks out this time. :shock:

I'm picking up an air freight load for Orlando, FL now. Maybe I can take a swim in one of the freshwater lakes while I'm down there. :shock:
