First Post from IE7

So, this is my first post to firsttube.com from Internet Explorer 7 (RC1). I have to admit, I really like this browser. Now, it will definitely not replace Firefox on my work PC, but it’s certainly a hell of a lot better than IE6. A HELL of a lot better.

I really do like the mini-tab new tab button. It’s useful. I also REALLY dig the default RSS stylesheet.

It has a ways to go with CSS still. firsttube.com – the admin portion – actually rendered better in IE6. Some of the javascript and style create some weird uninteded effects, such as dynamically displayed divs overlapping out of their container div.

Also, the refresh button KILLS me. It’s on the other side of the address bar, and as far as I can tell, can’t be moved. This is REALLY lame. I hate that.

I sold my Macbook Pro the other night to a fellow geek who wanted to tri-boot Windows, Linux, and the Mac OS. I gave him about a hour and a half tutorial, and he actually kept dropping to the terminal to run commands like a true geek. He was very happy, and has since told me about how happy he is with it.

In the meantime, I bought a new iMac: 20″ with the 256 video card. I’ll need to add some RAM, but in the meantime, it’s going to be awesome.

Benny’s Wedding

Jenn and I went to my friend Benny’s wedding this weekend. I was the best man, I gave a LONG roast speech. It was a good time. I got to catch up with a bunch of my old high school buddies, and I kinda wonder why I don’t stay in touch with them more. More on that, and pictures, soon.

Also, I listed my Macbook Pro on Craig’s List. If it sells, I’m buying a new iMac.

Mmm…. Macbook stand

I really want this stand for my MBP. It’s great, it angles up the keyboard, it will make the screen angle differently, and it appears to have nice grippy things on the bottom so as not to scratch up my desk. After the wedding, I may get one.
