Best way to surf the internet – a guide to setting up your firefox

A lot of my friends always ask me what I think is the best setup for surfing the internet…

Obviously this depends on you preferences but I wanted to walk through what I think is one of the best setups.

1. Get Firefox! Either


Now that you have that setup, lets customize it.

2. StumbleUpon. Get the toolbar, set it up, enjoy it. Trust me when I say you will need this. StumbleUpon allows you to choose your favorite categories of pages and then “stumble” through them randomly whenever you want. When you like something (like this page) give it a thumbs up, when you don’t like it give it a thumbs down. You might think this is a useless toy, but I think of it as a way to take a quick break and discover something new.

3. Get the Alexa toolbar. This provides website owners with a lot of traffic information that is useful and important to us. Also you can take a look at how your favorite sites are doing.

4. Get and install forecastfox. You set it up with your zipcode and have updated weather info for today and tomorrow (or more, its customizable). Means you don’t need to take any extra time to look up the weather, its right there on your toolbar. I set mine up to display on the menu bar so it doesn’t take up any extra space. If you want more info on that days weather, just click on it and it goes to the detail page.

5. This may just be the BEST firefox addon ever. Foxmarks. This allows you to sync the bookmarks of all your firefox browsers, so your laptop, desktop, and work machine will always have all the same bookmarks! Means I don’t need to keep emailing myself links, I just favorite it on whichever machine I’m on and my other firefoxes will sync up and have it in their bookmarks as well.

6. Gmail Manager – this is for those of you that are as obsessed with your gmail as I am. A must have.

7. IE tab – every once in a while you will come across a page that just needs to be viewed in IE for one reason or another. This plugin lets you open a page using the IE engine on that tab in firefox!

There you go, now you have a killer firefox setup. Sure there are a million other things you can add and tweak, but this is a great base setup. Enjoy….. Now if I could only get my firefox to accomplish home automation. Firefox! Why can you not function as our own personal web browser run home automation systems!

If you would like more extension ideas I suggest you also look at this: Lifehackers top 10 must have firefox plugins.

Rules of Life

Here are the 36 Rules of Life… and my comments in italics.

1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

2. Don’t worry about what people think, they don’t do it very often.
its true.

3. Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian anymore than standing in a garage makes you a car.
Hmmm, I don’t know about this one. If you make car noises while you’re in the garage, does that help?

4. Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.
See #2

5. If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you’ve never tried before.
Makes for a more adventurous life, and better stories.

6. My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance.
If only this would clean my house.

7. Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

8. A person who is nice to you but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person.
What if the waiter was rude first? Is tit-for-tat not what nice people do?

9. For every action, there is an equal and opposite government program.
I make money….they tax me…

10. If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the trip.
Better call my travel agent.

11. Bills travel through the mail at twice the speed of checks.
Do emailed bills travel twice as fast as my epayments?

12. A conscience is what hurts when all of your other parts feel so good.
You can never win!

13. Eat well, stay fit, die anyway.
Just later and with a better body…

14. Men are from earth. Women are from earth. Deal with it.
That’s the problem, we can’t deal with it.

15. No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes.
Maybe this is true, but women have been shot for not washing dishes:

WIND RIDGE – A 27-year-old Graysville man is being held in the Greene County Prison after police say he shot his 17-year-old wife to death for not washing the dishes.

Jessica Kathleen Petrie, 17, of 337 Chapman Road, Graysville, died at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, W.Va., where she had been taken for treatment after the Thursday morning assault.

The Greene County coroner’s office had yet to receive details Friday afternoon of an autopsy conducted in Pittsburgh.

16. A balanced diet is a muffin in each hand.
What about donuts, can I have a donut in each hand? Wait, now how do I hold my drink?

17. Middle age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist change places.
Oh no….

18. Opportunities always look bigger going than coming.
Keep this in mind when you make your next decision, maybe you won’t feel as bad when you pick the wrong choice.

19. Junk is something you’ve kept for years and throw away three weeks before you need it.
Exactly! Everytime I throw out that “book that was under my bed for 12 years” I will absolutely need it the following week.

20. There is always one more imbecile than you counted on.
I thought this system was foolproof.

21. Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
Then you can do something wrong to make yourself feel better but it ends in #12.

22. By the time you can make ends meet, they move the ends.

23. Thou shalt not weigh more than thy refrigerator.
Perhaps this one should be publicized a bit more.

24. Someone who thinks logically provides nice contrast to the real world.
Welcome to law school.

25. It ain’t the jeans that make your butt look fat.
See #23.

26. If you had to identify in one word the reason why the human race has not achieved it’s full potential, that word would be “meetings.”
Hey! Watch it! I love meetings.

27. There is a very fine line between “hobby” and “mental illness.”
Remember that kid, the one from middle school, who collected bugs? Yeah, he crossed the fine line.

28. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.
Unless it is purely so they may criticize yours…

29. You should not confuse your career with your life.
Something every law student should really remind themselves of.

30. Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance.
This is a lie. Every time I’m out someone makes fun of the bad dancers. These people don’t necessarily “care,” but they will make fun of you.

31. Never lick a steak knife.
But I just want that last piece of…OUCH.

32. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.
I wonder if the DoD uses this?

33. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time.
Did you read the articles published recently about how daylight savings time doesn’t even save us any energy? Here is one.

34. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she’s pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.
Even then we are likely upset and angry and you may not want to mention it.

35. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that deep down inside we ALL believe we are good drivers.
I am, no REALLY, I am.

36. Your friends love you anyway. But not your frenemies, and if you don’t think you have those, you just aren’t paying attention.


Timewaster Tuesday – My new addiction

Not that I have any time to waste at all these days…

I have a new addiction. It wastes time, and its free, how great is that? Those of you that used to play DOTA on warcraft will likely appreciate this a great deal. A friend of mine recently introduced me to this great game called Desktop Tower Defense. ” Desktop TD is a fun flash based puzzle / strategy game where you have to protect your desktop from invaders by spending money on attacking pieces and building a maze for them to follow.”

It is amazing, simple, and yet highly addictive. If you want to be productive today, I suggest you stay away from it. Be careful….

Oh and if a highly addictive flash game isn’t what you’re looking for, go ahead and check out these pictures of what celebrities would look like if they moved to Oklahoma.

That’s right, while I was running like mad trying to meet deadlines for the last month, WM6 was FINALLY released for the Samsung Blackjack.  What are you waiting for?  Go install it!

Don’t forget, this will wipe your phone, so be sure to back everything up.  Anyone have a copy of Sprite Backup I can use?
