Poker for idiots...

Just saw this add on television... it is for some poker website. It showed two men standing up in a warehouse kind of environment... there is a poker table between then and there is a dealer sitting at the table about to deal one last hand and the boys are obviously waiting to see the result of the card. Around this table are the audience.. a smouldering hot woman (ie - normal looking but with good lighting and 4 pints of makeup) is biting her lip in anticipation.

Come on... did you look at this add and think "I want to play poker online!" Some people will actually fall for this advert.

Sad...

Here be dragons!

I was looking into browsers, as you do and I came across this browser called SeaMonkey. In the early days Mozilla Firefox was community driven. As in the community wrote and maintained it. However then the project got to the size that Mozilla branched off into a more commercial project called Mozilla Firefox. There were a core bunch of people that stuck with the community based version however and called the browser SeaMonkey. I believe that they initally considered calling the project Buttmonkey but changed it. Even I think that that was a good idea.

Side note: in the browser, type in about:mozilla in the address bar and hit return.. Weird ah!

Second side note: in the browser type in about:config. Go here to get access to the internal settings of your Mozilla Firefox browser. FYI - you mess up these setting you could mess up to a certain degree your browser.
