End of the World!

With all the turmoil going on recently in the US financial markets, it started making me think about the end of the world again... No, not literally, but about a Flash video I remember from my childhood (well, at least from a few years ago). This is an "oldie but a goodie".

Stranger Loops

I know a few weeks ago, I posted an article called "Strange Loops", but a friend of mine recently sent me a link to a Flickr photo that just really said alot about loops. The photo is titled "Spaghetti Code":

Polishing the Chrome

Yep, Google released an IE killer today: Google Chrome Web Browser. According to many tech blogs I've been reading and some of the early stats coming in, it looks like more IE7/IE8 users are making the switch from IE to Google Chrome.

So, I've downloaded it, and had a few guinea pigs download it too. So far, so VERY GOOD. The browser is far faster than either Firefox or IE when starting up or loading a web page. There are some other pretty cool features too like being able to drag tabs from one window to another; creating "applications" from web pages, and much more.

Now, in the past (10 years) I have remained very faithful to Internet Explorer. Yes, I tried Firefox for a while when it came out, and I regularly open my pages in Firefox when I'm doing web development. But, I can clearly say that I have found a new default web browser: Google Chrome.

If you don't believe me, download it and try it out for yourself....
