Get Flash Player running in FF 3.1 Beta 1

So I've been using FF3.1b1 and have loved it. The speed improvements and cool new alt+tab style tab switcher have really been incredible. GMail has never loaded so quickly for me. The only thing I couldn't get working right away was Flash. So I dug around a bit and realized it was a matter of copying a file into the plugins folder of my beta installation.

Windows at the Airport

I was boarding a plane from EWR (Newark, NJ) to PHX (Phoenix Skyharbor) and came accross this on one of the information screens:


Windows error on a Delta information screen

It was an error for one of their VBScripts. I'm not sure what exactly the script does or was supposed to do but it did create an eyesore while waiting for my plane to board.

Fix dark theme's and Firefox

Ah, this is something I've been meaning to address just haven't got around to it. Today I decided I'd look into fixing problems with dark themes and Firefox. Basically, if you're using a dark theme with Ubuntu 8.04 and Firefox 3 a lot of websites will show up with black or dark input boxes and black font inside those. Even some buttons will show up black with black font. This is a huge hassle when it comes to productivity.

How to Make the Switch to Linux

In order to switch from one operating system to another it does take some time and effort. Over the passed roughly 6 months I've used Ubuntu as my primary OS. This is not as simple of a switch as you may think especially if you've been using Windows all your life. In the passed Linux was not very end-user friendly and sort of difficult to get into. Today, Ubuntu makes switching over extremely easy. By default it comes with almost all the software you really need in order to be productive. Getting things like music, videos, and other media to play doesn't take much effort either.

My Desktop

I'd like to share with you what Ubuntu Linux can look like with some tweaking. This shows that Linux doesn't have to look so boring as many people assume.
