Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

A Day Early

Made possible by the magic of digital wizardry, I am now in two places at once — here, and away (fishing).

I scheduled this to appear today because I’d like to share with you an important message for your Thursday…

Hey hey mama said the way you move, Gon’ make you sweat, gon’ make you groove.

Ah-ah child way you shake that thing, Gon’ make you burn, gon’ make you sting.

Now, I know that many of you will not recognize the (possibly) most famous opening lines from the (unquestionably) greatest rock and roll band of all time, so I found a video that we can either call “Today’s Educational Video” or “Friday Fun A Day Early”.

Because, I truly believe, it is very healthy to play air guitar every once in a while, and I want us all to be healthy. (So go ahead! It really doesn’t matter if anyone’s looking. [Well.. maybe you don’t want to rock out in front of the boss.. Your call.])

Today’s quote:Party on, Wayne.” ~ Garth Algar (aka Dana Carvey)

Breaking News: It seems there is a new Firefox beta available.

Number 15.

Is any FF user in the audience still using Firefox, or did you leave?

I have said it before. The people at Firefox headquarters need to chill out. Stop breaking the thing. Almost everyone I know has bailed for Chrome. (And a few went back to IE.)

  1. I still use FF. Oh well. Hope you bring back lots of fish. We want pics too.

    I found a Star Trek version of Carly Rae Jepsen’s – Call Me Maybe So much better. Funny watching Worf. Watch the cast of Star Trek: TNG sing teen pop hit ‘Call Me Maybe’ | Blastr

    Then watch, below..the full clip of Picard’s vaudeville number.

  2. Thanks Paul! Thursday and Friday Fun…an early start for the weekend… Party Is On!

    …and Yes… some of us remember the opening lines …”Hey, Hey, Mama said, the way u move”…

    Also, this may be “only” a Fish Story…while this may sound POETIC…it is known by “some” to be true at the “height of a Beach Party.”

    Play your music LOUD: (Perhaps The Air Guitar) …The “Mood…the Music…its Vibrations”…rippling over the water… the Fish Will Party Too…Yay, Fish Fry For Dinner! :)

    Enjoy The Fish Fry Paul!

    FF user…I want to leave, tired of the endless updates.

  3. Enjoy the fishing–it’s good for the soul. Very thoughtful of you to schedule a treat for the rest of us too.
    I still have Firefox, as well as Chrome. I admit, I’m spending more time on Chrome these days, but I miss some of my favourite add-ons for FF-especially ReminderFox and my nifty video download helper.

  4. delenn13, Gaia, hermit2003,
    Thank you for the good wishes and the feedback on FF.

    Yes, it was great, and getting “back to nature” and away from the “rat race” was just what the doctor ordered!
