If you haven't been poking into podcasts then you've been missing out.

Octopus Drop Kick/ODK blog is hilarious with all sorts of Japanese Media goodies. I'm always on the lookout for some interesting international music and followed his link to podcastjuice for some great amusement.

firefox saved form info tip

| | Comments (2)


The saved info for forms feature in firefox has been driving me a bit nutty.

Easy solution. Use your keyboard to highlight the unwanted entry and hit Shift-DEL keys. Away it goes :)

Thank you extension mirror forum for this nice tip
