Blog Update: November 10th

A couple quick updates. We have been working with our hosting provider to improve the performance of the blog. Some users have been experiencing slow load times. We’ve enabled some new caching features which should help boost the speed. We have fixed an issue with Tweets embedded within the blog posts were not being formatted correctly. However, this not an automagically retroactively fix, so we are manually going through the posts and fixing the embedded tweets.

Weekly Round-Up: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Today is Sunday, November 6th: time for the weekly roundup of the good, the bad and the ugly tech news of the week! Plus for those of you who observe Daylight saving time (something we don’t do here in Arizona) time to turn your clocks back an hour if you have forgotten to do so. The Good It is always a good thing when people can find new purposes for old technology. Nothing worse then having old computers end up in a landfill. It could be repurposing an old PC to run as a media center for a non-Smart TV…

MIA Posts

So it appears there are still some posts that did not get carried over from the old Firefox Blog. I am discovering this as I am trying to search for content I thought I had posted. I still have the old blog on a private domain for just such an emergency. Over the next couple weeks I am going to start comparing for each month what is on the old Firefox Blog versus what is on the tech blog. I have recently transferred over posts from April 2015 as I was needing to reference a post during this time frame for…

In Memoriam: gareon

It is with a heavy heart I announce my co-author gareon (Gary) recently passed away. I first met Gary online via Delphi Forum GoFirefox! many, many years ago. I even had an opportunity to met him person a few years back while on vacation up in Northern Arizona.  He was Linux and Pale Moon fanatic as you could tell by his posts both on the blog and his forums. He joined me on the Firefox Blog back in February 2010. During the past year, he was posting more than I was on the Firefox Blog which helped keep the blog…

We’re 10!

That’s right 10 years ago today, a Blog was Born! Honestly, I am surprised it has last this long (and I am not just talking about the blog). A lot has happened in the last 10 years in the browser ‘market’. While Internet Explorer is still around (and sadly not by choice for some users who are stuck using IE for certain essential websites), there is a lot more choice in web browsers now. Even Microsoft introduced a new (and crippled) browser with Windows 10. Microsoft Edge, a browser so useless it pushes users over the edge. Netscape is long…

Back to Firefox

About a year ago I had opted to do away with the El Guru’s Blog and post anything tech related on this blog. During the past month I was looking over the content of the blog and notice the majority of the content from the past 9-years (as of May 1st) is Firefox. In April 2009 I split off the Thunderbird content over to the Email Mafia Blog as I wanted to keep the Firefox Extension Guru’s Blog dedicated to Firefox only. In the past year I had come across some none Firefox content I had considered posting, but didn’t because I…
