Mozilla

I am experimenting with Mozilla, which is Netscape all grown up. It reminds me of the old Netscape, same icons, same good performance, before the Microsoft Borg decided they would be assimilated, and within 18 months the browser to have was IE, with all its size and security problems.
&nbsp
And, yet, all is not well. Mozilla is really quick, appreciably quicker than IE when opening web pages, and it’s pretty slick. However, this post to Blogger is being composed on IE, because in Mozilla the composer window is bizarre and missing pieces; also, I was unable to log into my comments engine from Mozilla but had no trouble with IE. Therefore, there is a problem with Mozilla or a problem with IE. Choose you problem.
&nbsp
I’m going to keep Mozilla, for now, because it deals so completely and effectively with ads and those atrocious popup windows.

Fresno food poisoning

Fresno had an outbreak of food poisoning in 1999, and it wasn’t accidental. Seems labor and management had a falling out, and about 100 Fresnans got an unexpected dose of “…methomyl, a highly toxic agricultural pesticide that can be handled and bought only with a permit”, per the CNN report.
&nbsp
Your humble correspondent lived in Fresno then, and I have a vague remembrance of the establishment being closed down, but at the time the rumor was of a more natural food poisoning, not chemical warfare on patrons. Had I been working in an ED on that end of town I would probably remember it more vividly.

So, look for happy employees in the kitchen, too.
