Are You Receiving Me?

Having some server problems this weekend. Actually, no, the server is fine – it’s my ISP’s path to my site that is mucked up. Throughout the weekend I’ve had numerous periods of maybe 10 minutes where I cannot reach my site. If I do a traceroute during that downtime, I get about 15 pretty slow bounces and then it times out. If I use an anonymous proxy site, I can get in so I know that the site is still up, but it’s a bit of a pain to not have consistent access to my site, particularly if I’m doing work on the code. Not sure what I can do about this, unfortunately. I will treat this the same way I do medical conditions… ignore it and hope it goes away.

It’s bloody cold out!

I’m finding that I’m using Netscape 7.0 more and more – it’s essentially the same program as Mozilla and uses the same user registry so all my passwords and settings are preserved, but I’m thinking it actually runs faster than Mozilla. Maybe it’s six of one, half dozen of the other, but it amuses me to believe I’m just that astute and the one thing I do know is that they both kick Internet Explorer’s ass. Tabbed browsing man, you can’t beat that with a stick.

My email trash is asking me if I’m dating someone who’s already married. Wouldn’t that be an interesting development?

    Netscape 7 may very well be faster than Mozilla – but there’s a big problem (for me anyway) with it.

    It NS7 doesn’t support popup blocking. That’s enough to keep me running Mozilla.

    It’s REALLY fast. On my machine here – it feels about twice as fast as Mozilla.

    NS7 doesn’t do popup blocking? I haven’t looked through the preferences menu as it maintained all my Mozilla 1.0 settings. I am not getting popups in Netscape 7, though. Try installing this:


    It lets you toggle browser functions on and off from the toolbar
