Foxmarks

Foxmarks

I intended on writing about Foxmarks when I first discovered it a couple of months ago, so I’m finally getting to it.

Foxmarks is a way to upload your Firefox bookmarks on a remote server so when you goto another computer and use Firefox (of course both will have to have Foxmarks installed and your username and password will have to be added) you can synchronize your bookmarks onto that machine and surf like normal.

This is a great service and better yet it’s free. I was thinking about getting a .Mac account, but after finding this service, realized that I only needed .Mac to synchronize my bookmarks. Now I can do it for free.

Also, if you are on a computer that doesn’t have Firefox (or maybe you don’t feel comfortable with the computer having all your bookmarks on it), then you can surf to my.foxmarks.com, login, and you’ll have all your bookmarks available to you. (The one fault I found is that it doesn’t work well with Camino).

Foxmarks updates your bookmarks whenever you make a change. Then only downside I’ve noticed is some slowdown when Foxmarks is synchronizing your bookmarks after a change when you start Firefox (but only when Firefox wasn’t open to begin with).

And so it has come to this…

This is worth it just for two songs: Cold War Kids’ Electioneering and John Vanderslice’s Karma Police. It may not be your cup o’tea to mess with Karma Police, but the recycled Trent Reznor electronics make it work.

I suggest going to Vanderslice’s website and downloading “Exodus Damage.

Interview

I gave my first interview today. It’s odd being on the other side of the table. Asking questions, listening, trying to feel the other person out.

I was just as nervous giving the interview as I would be if I was the interviewee.

EDIT
I’m talking about interviewing a person for a position at my work, not interviewing a singer or writer or something like that. Sorry for the confusion, if there was any.

You may feel an urgent need to go to the bathroom. Until you have a sense of any treatment effects, its probably a smart idea to wear dark pants, and bring a change of clothes with you to work

You have GOT to be kidding me? A diet plan that involves a change of clothes?

Oh, and this is just the topper:
“The excess fat that passes out of your body is not harmful. In fact, you may recognize it as something that looks like the oil on top of a pizza.”
