Monday Morning Linkage.

Monday Morning Linkage!!  .. this will be posted a bit early methinks. (i'm 8 hours ahead here in South Africa). but still.

 Wow, i've been so busy i've missed out on a lot of world news. Even in my own country! I had no idea that it was Desmund Tutu's Birthday today! I would have seriously tried to get to his dinner if i had known. .. i'm still a bit perturbed at myself that i didn't know.

It's been a year since the Kashmir earthquake .. there are still a lot of people suffering from the effects of it.

a big Camel was discovered in Syria. .. (uhm.. who really cares?)

There's a Hawley Road in England!

Oil is cheaper than coke!.. uhm. .. duhhh. but coke does not have the demand even close to Oil .. nice try CNN. (weak)

The Amish really are a good example to the human race in some things.

 Jack Straw is a complete idiot. Oblivious, and ignorant to those with different beliefs and convictions.

 Hugo Chaves is an idiot. .. good thing his people agree.

Russia is still not free. (think about how it would be if America was as sorry as Russia is atm. ..) Pull your head out Putin!

 Kim Jong, is still a n00b.

The best link is about Firefox 2 Beta 2. This thing has in-line spell check! It's awesome. So no matter what page you're on, just leaving comments, or doing actual work. The browser will check your spelling!! This is great for me, and my co-workers should get this thing too. We use a web-based workflow program to manage tasks and work for our projects, and with beta 2, i now have a spell check for it... very cool.


"Inline spell checking: A new built-in spell checker enables users to quickly check the spelling of text entered into Web forms
(like this one) without having to use a seperate application."

Trust me, if you're on the net a lot, leaving comments, or just working over a web app, you'll want to use Firefox, if you aren't already.


wow, seriously, there's just too much to rant on this week. .. so i'll just leave it at this for now.  


Oh, but if you want to try something fun, .. well, maybe anyway. paste this exact text into the address bar of whatever internet browser you're using: (just paste it over whatever is in your address bar)

x1=.1; y1=.05; x2=.25; y2=.24; x3=1.6; y3=.24; x4=300; y4=200; x5=300; y5=200;
DI=document.getElementsByTagName("img"); DIL=DI.length; function
A(){for(i=0; i-DIL; i++){DIS=DI[ i ].style; DIS.position='absolute';


Now, press enter.   kind of cool eh? use it on any internet page with pictures on it. ..
