And utterly unrelated, at that.
On the one hand, I just installed a metric shitload of Firefox extensions. Anyone that still thinks that IE is the browser of choice hasn’t looked through the huge list of extensions available for Firefox (which runs beautifully on both PC and Mac, by the way). I stopped using IE because of the constant security patching that was necessary, and while Firefox is not without it’s problems (as is true of most computer apps, especially those which allow you to communicate with others), it’s far superior to IE (and way way way superior to Netscape — nuff said there).
Now I just have to relearn my toolbar.
What I find myself having to learn less and less is computer programming languages. All that C++ is finally falling into place, and it’s mostly because of the near constant PHP practice I’m getting over the past months. And while I’ve known that languages are, by and large, languages, and all you need to do is master the syntax and semantics (after that, it’s easy enough to use online manuals to tweak the language-specific terms and functions and structures), I’m finally feeling it all click into place.
I mean, YAY! Now I can write more Java, and Perl, and whatever else they throw at me.
Maybe I’ll jsut stick to installing extensions.
