Tech Update

What the The Thunder Said is a big supporter of Mozilla, an online, open source community that has produced such gems as Firefox and Thunderbird. I use many of their products: besides those two listed, Sunbird, Bugzilla, Mozilla Suite, Greasemonkey, Mozilla Minimo, and Lightning. I think they make fantastic products. For instance, Firefox is a web browser, similar to Internet Explorer. However, Mozilla Firefox takes up less space on your computer, is easier to use, has many functions yet to be developed by Microsoft (IE's creator), is much safer from viruses and pop-ups. and is free. Thunderbird is an email client, that is far superior to Microsoft's Outlook.

So here's an announcement to let you know that Firefox 1.0.7 and Thunderbird 1.0.7 have been released. They are protected against the most recent internet security leaks, and have updated user functions as well. Click either of the banners on the side of What the Thunder Said to get these programs for free.

The second thing to do is sign a petition for Firefox dominance. eBay, the popular online auction, has never been quite as good when being viewed by Firefox, as compared to Internet Explorer. Now, someone has begun a petition that eBay update their programming to support Firefox fully. I signed, and I was #1194 (I think). If you would like to sign the petition, go here.


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
