Give me extensions or give me death

I haven't been updating my three year old extensions post, so I figured it was time for an overhaul.

That's why I spent three hours doing this. )

Meme on a Saturday afternoon

Stolen from [info]calturner:

List all of the television shows you have on DVD, no matter how obscure or embarrassing. Even if you only own one season, list it. Let's see who has what!

21 Jump Street (seasons 1-3)
30 Rock (season 1)
4400, The (season 1)

The Rest under the cut )

Also, I just finished Being Human, and I started capping as I watched with the second episode, so here are those caps if anyone's interested.

I upgraded to Firefox 3.6 the other day, and I love the personas thing. Right now I'm using the Windows 7 one because I love the colors, but I'll probably switch it before too long to something else.

I've become (re-)obsessed with online games. Mostly puzzle games. Some of my favorites from the past few weeks:

  • Word Bubbles. Not at all a puzzle game, but a word game. [info]poshcat linked it last week or so, and I've been playing it daily since. I LOVE THIS ONE.

  • Atomica. This is a lot like Clines (which came in real handy when my internet was down at work the other day).

  • Tower Builder. I was obsessed with this one a month or so ago.

So, anyone got any online game recs? Time-waster recs, if you will.

So, [info]dianora2 had this meme.
1. Post about something that made you happy today even if it's just a small thing.
2. Do this every day for a week without fail.
3. Tag 8 of your friends to do the same.

Happy Day 1: I set up my new work computer today, and thanks to the replies in my last post, it worked like a charm! Oh my god, having all my passwords, my extensions, my Clippings, my autofills right there at my fingertips in a few seconds flat? HEAVENLY. And then I spent the afternoon translating The Office (season 1), and watching/proof reading Dead Like Me and Monk. It was a pretty damn good work day, let me tell you. The boss even brought in some pastry for the afternoon coffee tea break. =)

I'm not tagging anyone, this is more to force myself to post every day for 7 days straight. Let's see if I can keep it up!

Some TV:


Billable Hours season 1 )

Of the two comedies about mean people I've been watching lately, I have to say, I prefer It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia )

This is turning into a bad habit


Does anyone know of a Firefox extension that saves all your extensions, passwords, etc, either into a file, or somewhere online? I could have sworn I found somthing like that a year or so ago, but right now I can't even think of what search terms to use.

I'd just really like to make getting a new work computer as painless as possible.

Tissa linked Stickies and I'm already in love. For the longest time, I haven't been using any type of paper to take notes, and my memory just isn't up to storing all this short-term info I've got to retain for an hour, a day or a week. I've tried Google Notebook, but opening a web site is just too work-intensive for something as simple as writing down a phone number. This application is just perfect.

I'm making to do lists all the time, saving often-used text (not the ones I use online, though, I've got Clippings for that), and I think I'm even going to start making post-its for birthdays, since there's a "sleep" function that means you can have a post-it appear yearly, or monthly, or weekly. There are also alarms and all kinds of other fun stuff.

Here's a chicken-or-egg conundrum for you: Am I feeling lacklustre about TV right now because I don't have time to focus on it because work is sucking up all my time, or is TV actually lacklustre and thus leading to me getting even more caught up in work than I otherwise would? Who knows, but I can't say anything's wowing me right now. I have a few things to say about TAR and Life, though. )

Also, I am an episode and a half away from finishing my complete rewatch of The West Wing, and I have thoughts. )

Love is in the air

I haven't posted in over two weeks, and I feel less and less inclined to do so with each day that passes, so right now I'm forcing myself to post something. Might as well be something useful, right? So here's an update on my Extensions=love post, which I have reposted in full, with new extensions in burgundy.

Extensions=love )

User scripts )

Also: 3 Things to Love About Firefox 3 )

And 1 Thing to Hate )

Other than that, I've mostly been watching Australian reality shows, which are awesome right now.

Project Runway )

brand new religion

After my last post I was completely embarrassed and at the same time, perversely proud to notice that the episodes I listed as having watched since the previous post amounted to 87. In NINE days. And over the next 24 hours I watched another 13 episodes, bringing my total for those ten days up to an even 100 (ten of which were Greek )). All this while working full-time (but not very hard, I must confess), having at least two game nights with friends and reading tons of fanfic. I'm not sure how I did it.

But considering my resolve to watch at least the first seven seasons of The X-Files before the movie premieres (which is August 1st here, giving me an extra week), I'm hoping I'll stay in this strange time vortex for just a little while longer. Right now, I'm on 2x10, and I'm hoping to finish seasons 2 and 3 before the end of the week.

Also, I'm thinking I should cap some episodes as I go (because even though there ARE caps for most episodes, the quality is sadly lacking), but I can't really figure out which ones to cap except for Paper Hearts, so any suggestions/requests would be welcome.

[info]crackers4jenn's recent icon post made me remember this set of pictures, so I set about making myself a wallpaper from the cover (now that I can put it into rotation!). The fruit of my labors, if anyone's interested:

This is gonna be a nightmare

I'm going to be redecorating my apartment this summer. )

So, aside from the two Ally McBeal episodes I capped and the half a season of Avatar that I watched (half a book that I watched? Sounds bizarre), that's pretty much how I spent my weekend. *g*

You just can't buy publicity like that

I tend to think of How I Met Your Mother as a very low-key show, one that's dismissed in the minds of large parts of the viewing public and loved ferociously by large parts of fandom. So imagine my surprise when a story pops up on my BBC News syndication about the show. So I go to check out the article. It's okay now, but this is what it looked like when I first saw it. Good thing I remembered to take a screenshot.

Which brings me to the second part of this post: Extensions. I made the above screenshot with one of my favorite new finds: FireShot

And here are all of them. )

I didn't post for over a week and now I've posted three times in two days? CRAZY!
