Oh shit yeah. Finally TV land is starting to catch up after the writers strike. Man, that strike was the worst timing ever. Or maybe best timing, for them. Right after I got hooked on three shows (Entourage, Dexter, Californication) the strike started. So like millions of others I have been waiting months for these shows to finally start up again. Well the wait is over. Dexter season 3 starts September 28th and they have released some promos on the Showtime website (and YouTube). If you haven’t seen Dexter yet you really need to get Dexter – The First Season and watch it. I guarantee you’ll love it. If you don’t, I hate you.

I use up to three different computers on a weekly and sometimes daily basis. Sometimes I come across a site that I don’t need right away, but I want to save for later, so I bookmark it. The problem is, if I bookmark it on my work computer and then want to look at it from home the bookmark is pretty useless.
Well I just found this plug-in for Firefox called Foxmarks. It syncs your bookmarks to a server so that you always have the same set of bookmarks no matter which computer you are on. The plug-in will merge your computer’s bookmarks with the version you stored online. Another great thing about it is your bookmarks are always sorted in the same order across every computer. This is a great convenience.
But what if I’m visiting a friend and I want to show them a site I bookmarked on my computer? You dont want to be installing software on your friends computer, so just go to my.foxmarks.com and login with your Foxmarks account. You’ll be presented with an AJAX web page of your last synced bookmarks. Pretty sweet.
If you are concerned with privacy, fear not, you can choose to backup your bookmarks to your own server instead of the Foxmarks servers. I see they also have a version for IE in beta, but if you are still using IE you have bigger problems than out of sync bookmarks. Yeah. I went there.
Well I just upgraded to WordPress 2.6.1 from like version 2.1. Everything seems to be working as it should. There probably isn’t much new from your point of view, but a lot has changed on the back end. Oh, and I’m probably less vulnerable to h4x0rz.
PS, first post in 8 months. I rule.
