BloggerBar for Firefox 1.2

By James Lucas
Brings the power of Blogger into a single toolbar.
- Added Search buttons into one single "Popup menu".
- User can now right click on a page to use the "BlogThis" function.

You can get a free Add-on for Firefox that lets you compose and publish (or draft) entries right to your accounts.

This Add-on gives you a button on Firefox that opens a window that you can type your blogs directly into and save them to your blogger accounts. It's great!
Don't let the "for Firefox 1.2" scare you, I think that's the Add-on version. I'm running Firefox 1.0.7 (which I think is the latest version) and it works fine with it.

Just enter your blog just like you do in Blogger and Publish it to your account of choice (if you have multiple accounts).

It doesn’t bog your system down like I’ve experienced with the Blogger Plug-in for MS Word. Word puts me at 100% CPU when I’m accessing the blogs, but this is something the Firefox Add-on doesn’t do.

Another thing about Firefox that I like is that it doesn’t take lots of CPU like IE can, (sometimes IE locks me up).

Vettes and Vipers

How does the Dodge Viper compair to the Chevy Vette? The C6 generation of Corvettes came out in 2006, boasting 505 hp from a 427 cid alumimum small block and having stripped hte weight down to 3132 lbs this shark will sail. This year the SCCA mid-Ohio T1 event had all but 4 cars being Vettes, and a Vette placed #1. The very same Vette that has won it 4 years in a row, and lead all the laps for the last four years. They did have 3 Vipers there, and one did came in 2nd. The Dodge Viper - Now I'm a Vette man, having had a 1969 427 and having my finger on the pulse of Corvette history, but I really love the Viper. It's such a TRUE muscle car, and with a technology edge. Did I forget to mention that the Vipers had to run 40% restricted? So that's how you make them compete with a Vette! Anywho, the Viper touts 510 hp from its V-10 weighing in slightly more than the C6 Vette, around 3300 lbs.

Or perhaps an Ferrari F40 is more your speed?!?

Bias in the media

I'm watching Fox News, (for entertainment I guess.)
Is this Conan I'm watching? Letterman?
They're certinaly not trying to pass this off as NEWS are they? Whatever happened to the BBC's stand on being non-biased in reporting? Even the BBC has vered from that lond held moto. You don't get news anymore, you get a politically corrected spin to it, but you're not supposed to notice they're spinning it.
It's one thing to be an alive, thinking, real personality, another to take up the chat show persona on news events, to sway your viewers toward your side of the issues.
Remember one mans freedom fighter or patriot - is another mans terrorest. Terrorist is a word the BBC wouldn't use years ago. It's not because there weren't any, it's because it's a biased word. It's not reporting -- it's biasing!

Gulfstream V landing gear problem

What's with Fox News? They covered this story live for how many hours?!? Still they didn't have the information that I was able to find in 2 minutes.

Richmond, VA -- 5th most dangerous city ???

Hey Fox! What's this rating based on?

Acuracy in media???

Fox News (watch it only for the entertainment, if you can stand it), Why is it I could easly find more/better information than they had durring this whole report!?!

My days in the media we wouldn't do such a thing, If you doin't know what you're talking about you're better off to shut up.

And *NEWS*, news is to be non-biased reporting. Fox News is blatant at giving their *opinions*, or more acuratly said -- their politicaly bent opinions.
Or is this SNL news? They talk off camera joking with the crew to blur their "news" opinions, and it's not just them coming up with this off their head -- they make such errors that they must be reading it from a tele-prompter. (like saying comma for coma)

Fox News Alert -- We don't know what the hell we're doing

Did you see the reports on the Gulfstream V landing gear problem today? Now it wasn't my choice, by I was in the vicinity of the tube at this time, but not in control of its contents.
more later...

What's wrong with the state of Blog's

First -- It's a one category entry. Looks like you have to make a Forum to get some separation of topics. A simple floder indexing hyerarchie would be nice, and keep things less cluttered. People have many different interests that they write about, but they all have to go in the same place. When I visit a site that I linked to via a topic search, I want to be able to just see the posts that relate to my search.

FIA World Rally 2005

Watching some great coverage of WRC racing. This is real world racing!!!
Costa Brava, Spain & Perth, Australia.

My First Car

1967 Mustang - 289 auto

Yes, my first car is one I should have kept. I only had it several months, then thought I needed a Vette. I should have stayed with the Stang, it would have been much less $ and time spent restoring. In about 1980 it only cost $200 and was running fine. I didn't know what a steal I had. [kick self, kick self] To bad I never took a picture of it. It was red, jacked up in the rear with wide mags, really *cool*.

The 1969 427 Vette, that's another story ... for later.
