Firefox 3: get it fresh off the servers…

So: firefox 3 is out. It is _not_ the official position of this blog that Firefox R0x and everything else is teh sux. Because that’s childish. Also, 1/3 of us Birdies work for Microsoft.

Nonetheless, Firefox 3 is out. Go get it :)

Update: had to keep the leet lingo fresh, yo!

A missed opportunity

I have a can of coke on my desk, and on one side of the can the logo appear to read “Koka-Kona”. The fine print below the logo reads:

OLYMPIC GAMES COLLECTOR SERIES
1 OF 5
In Russia, Coca-Cola uses this logo. Inside, enjoy the same create taste. Experience the world at mycoke.com

Am I alone in thinking it should read:

OLYMPIC GAMES COLLECTOR SERIES
1 OF 5
In Russia, Coca-Cola logo uses YOU!

Mazal tov! It’s about damned time, you two.

32 Days ago the California Supreme Court looked at our State’s constitution and found enough protections for gays within that document that any restrictions on the rights of gays would have to meet “Strict Scrutiny” tests. legislative Bans on marriage did not meet that test and were therefore illegal. At 5:01pm, PDT, the paperwork was handed out, and about a nanosecond later, the first legalizable ceremonies took place.

It is fascinating to me the ways that human beings want to get married. The forms of marriage differ across time and culture, but the fact of it is universal. A society such as ours should have the broadest, most inclusive terms possible. Allowing more people, more couples to formalize their roots within the community makes us all that much better off.

For too long man kept apart what the gods had joined. Yesterday we began correcting that mistake.
