I’ve Been A Bad Blogger

Posted on Thu 17 November 2005 in Dispatches • 1 min read

I have been going in cycles with my blogging and have been in a downturn of late. I actually am working on a few interesting entries for you folks, but I’ve just been so damn busy and distracted. It hasn’t helped that Quentin turned me onto the Stumble Upon extension for Firefox. Essentially, you tell SU what general categories of pages you are interested in and then when you get bored you can click a button on your toolbar to be taken to a highly rated site in your interests. You can also teach SU what you like by rating where you go in turn. It essentially makes surfing the net as time-consuming, entertaining, and time wasting as clicking the remote in front of a TV wired with a full cable package.

However, as I’ve been wasting so much time with this, I should at least share some of the cooler things I’ve found through it.
