Sleepy (Fire)fox

Gah, I slept for ten hours!!! Admittedly, I wasn't feeling so great when I got up, either from oversleeping or a minor illness. Now that I am up and showered I do feel a lot better. Work tonight, though I'll probably not take a nap before (unless what I normally do) since I already got more than enough sleep.

Didn't do too much on my days off either. Tibs rented a couple movies. One's playing right now, and looks decent so far, "Man on Fire" with Denzel Washington. The other one we watched last night, "Dark Horizon", was pretty horrible for a sci-fi flick. Of course, where we rent it only costs us $1 a DVD, so we tend to take more chances on what we rent than we normally would. :)

Feeling kinda geeky since yesterday, so I went mad crazy looking for good extensions for my Firefox web browser. Yep, I actually managed to bog down Firefox! Of course, I tweaked a few settings in the about:config page, so now it loads pages as fast as Opera. ;) In case you're a Firefox user and don't know, version 1.0PR has recently been released! Go check it out. :)

Anyway, here's a list of the extensions I currently have installed. I've bolded extensions that are must-haves, and italicized those that are must-haves depending upon what you use. :)
