Beautiful, spring-like weather here today. More like April than February. The sound of Harleys on the street below is always an indicator of good weather. I went outside for a while, but I'm still staying off my feet as much as possible.

I've installed the Mozilla Firefox browser, and so far I like it a lot. It seems to have most or all of the features of Internet Explorer and the Google toolbar, plus new features like browser tabs. They also have an OS X version for those of the Mac persuasion. I may try their Thunderbird email/newsgroup client, too, though I'm happy enough with Agent, which I've used for years.
