Google Chrome will probably support Firefox Extensions! – UPDATED

Well I feel like an idiot, as the commenter below pointed out, the link I mentioned was a bookmark itself, not a "get bookmark plugins" link, but it was showing up in my list of bookmarks, which means that, as the commenter said, this bookmark had been imported from Firefox, and was not actually an indication that Google Chrome was intending to support Firefox Extensions. The truth of the matter is I was so surprised to find the link, that I didn't think about logical reasons why that link might have been there. I spun up a fresh copy of Windows on VMWare after the commenter posted, and did an installation of Google Chrome where Firefox had never existed. The link I mentioned below did not exist, which means the commenter was right, it did indeed come from an import of Firefox bookmarks. I'm big enough to admit that I'm wrong. For archival purposes, my original, incorrect, blog post is after the break. My review of the things I like about Chrome still stands, although my foolish thought that Chrome will support Firefox extensions does not. (more…)

Nick Moline is on the air

When I first started this blog just over 3 years ago (July, 2003) it was my second jaunt into internet pop culture. My foray into the culture of the web (after years of being a sort of web recluse) was to write a fanfic, then I created a blog, and now, now after these 3 years, I have published my first podcast episode. WizardCast is a Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Role Playing podcast by the staff of Wizards.Pro and the HogwartsLive RPG. (more…)

Trend Started

Well when I changed my blog software and updated it Mike decided to switch to wordpress too, he’s been having even more fun with plugins then I have. He put his Battlefield 2 stats on his blog as well as a live look at who’s on his teamspeak.

Busily Updating

I am working hard on trying to upgrade this blog to a newer version of the Blog:CMS software, unfortunately this is proving to be more difficult then I would have hoped, as all the skins seem to have been messed up royally. (more…)

BLOG:CMS v3.0 XE

Well I'm changing blog systems to BLOG:CMS because Movable Type has gone commercial. I chose BLOG:CMS because it was based on Nucleus (which was open source (aka, non commercial) and has a nifty little importer feature where I can import all my blog entries from MovableType and thus.. not lose anything. BLOG:CMS was nice as well because it had a number of built in skins and templates and plugins, so without waiting for JMac to figure out how to port my beautiful old blog template over to a new one, I can at least have a somewhat functional skin right off the bat. There are also a number of nifty addins that BLOG:CMS has by default that would be difficult in MovableType. In the expanded version of this post you will see the shameless plug by the authors of BLOG:CMS for the software as well as a feature list.Thank you :-) (more…)
