An Awsome Post!

This isn’t the post that I promised last. Think of it as an intermediate bonus post while I write that one. It’s an idea I’ve had in my head for a little while and just feel like getting out there right now. Everytime I start to type in Firefox’s Awsome Bar I get interested in the site that makes it to the top. So here, for your delight, an insight into my browsing habits; the top website for each lettter:

Does This Mean I’m Famous?

I quite like Lifehacker because they pretty often offer useful tips (though their obsession with “getting to done” is quite wearisome for those of us who don’t work that way). One of the things Lifehacker has given me is some quite cool software through their “download of the day”.

Thing is, I’m actually the author of that script (with a large nod to Jonathon Brodsky who wrote the original). Fame at last! Now I’ll just have to deal with all the inevitable bug reports…
