Mozilla Lightning

Reading: RBDL on Piper, Murray, and the Programmatic Function of the Law
Enjoying: just Ginger Ale, but its good
Listening: Switchfoot, The Beautiful Letdown

All in all, a successful weekend with the Wayts up at Lake Mille Lacs. Happy Anniversary to Richie and Char Wayt for 60 years of marriage!

Finally, some initial attempts at upgrading the Mozilla Lightning project seem to be getting underway. For those unfamiliar, Lightning is the project to help further integrate Mozilla Thunderbird, the Mozilla email client. (In case you haven't noticed, What the Thunder Said is a big time fan of Mozilla products, especially Firefox, Thunderbird, and Sunbird. Check out my links to the left to get going.)

I would love to get to the point of eliminating Microsoft Outlook from my computer. Currently, it acts as a middle man. I synchronize my hp iPAQ 5550 pocket pc to get email, tasks, and other data on my calendar. However, I then export my calendar and tasks to Mozilla Sunbird, and wirelessly control my emails with Thunderbird. I would love to see Lightning eliminate my Microsoft middle man, and sync compatibly with Thunderbird (with a contextualized calendar client).

So, hopefully all of this is not far off. Here's what it currently looks like on my computer:

Have a blessed Lord's Day.


Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely. free polls
