It’s Ready.

Victory PosterFirefox 3 will be released Tuesday, June 17th.  This is indescribably exciting for us here at Mozilla, we are all quite giddy in our excitement places.  If you would like to share in this joy, I recommend the following 5 step regimen:

  1. Go read the Deb Richardson’s unbelievable Field Guide to Firefox 3, so you can see what all the hubbub is about.
  2. Go watch Mike Beltzner’s magnificent-yet-brief Intro to Firefox 3 features screencast, to set your pots a boilin’.
  3. Go view John Slater’s profoundly triumphant post of the new Firefox 3 Victory Poster, to adorn your walls and windshields.
  4. Go sign up yourself to participate in the life-alteringly spectacular Download Day, you one best chance to be part of a Guinness World Record that doesn’t involve putting bees up your nose.
  5. Go find yourself a party full of people every bit as frothy as we are.

Can I get an “Amen!” people?

Canadian Pride

Neon American FlagAn article of faith among Canadians is that not only do we know more about our country than Americans know about theirs, but we know more about the US than Americans do, as well. This may or may not be true on balance, but I will let sleeping sacred cows lie. For those who wish to get their self-congratulatory freak on though, behold:

MSNBC’s Short-form US Citizenship Exam

I will admit that I did not get perfect – stupid question 19. In my defense, if I were actually applying for US citizenship, I feel that I would probably have known what the form was called.

RRSP WTF

So I had an article here that attempted to treat, in slower pacing and more elaborate detail, the first of the eleventy-two topics I tried to cover here. More specifically, given the time of year, and the tone of most TV advertising at the moment (i.e. RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP RRSP) I thought it might help folks to get a ground-level “what the hell is an RRSP and what do I do with it” introduction.

But then a cleverly orchestrated sequence of events, including me restarting my web server WHILE hitting “save” in my blog post editor caused my post to vanish in much the way that posts, ideally, shouldn’t. So I am interpreting this as a sign that maybe my audience does not WANT this article. I thus leave it open to comment or email – is there any interest in an article of this kind, to help people wade through the waters of patronizing scotia partners portfolios and ING guaranteed RRSPs? Or does everyone here already day trade on african derivatives markets?
