William & Sly

I’ve always been a platform kid at heart.  From the early days of Jet Set Willy, through Sonic and now to Seiklus, there’s no better way to lose me for hours than presenting me with four arrow keys, an expansive world, and some nebulous mission.



Like, literally…

It’s very rarely that YouTube content makes me smirk, let alone laugh as loudly as this particular video did:

A fantastic literal interpretation of the extraordinarily melodramatic video for Total Eclipse Of The Heart by Bonnie Tyler, reminiscent of MTV’s “Pop Up Video” series from the 90s.  There’s an assortments of others, but I reckon this is the pinnacle.

“Well, this is embarrassing…”

Not a message I’d expect to get from a web browser.  Still, Firefox gave me this this morning:


(Yes, I’ve removed the actual tabs.  No, they were just a bunch of 90s YouTube music videos.)

Sage-Too is dead, long live Sage++

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

logoA couple of days ago I wrote about using Sage-Too in Firefox 3.5, which has had a rocketing number of hits over the last couple of days.  Nice to know that other people share my taste for the simple plugins in life.

I was going to package up the existing Sage-Too .xpi, but while following the discussion around the net I noticed that Sage-Too has been replaced by Sage++ that runs on 3.5, which as far as I can tell is by one of the Sage-Too authors, Higgmer.

I’ve had it installed for the day or so since I found it, and I can report that it’s working perfectly.  So, for everyone that’s been looking here for a decent RSS reader again, it’s a pleasure to send you over there to Higgmer.

Get Sage++ (Higgmer’s Edition)
(Click “Switch To English” at the top-right, then installation instructions are halfway down)

RSS nirvana restored!  Let me know how you get on.
