Just gave in to the geeky side of the force this morning and bought a DVD documentary about BBS’s. (the version I bought comes with a DVD full with BBS text files, ANSI art, and random crap.)

After buying, this is the screen I got:

I don’t think I ever got a chuckle out of what happened right *after* I forked over cash. Here’s to you, Bob!

  2. Excuse me, but what is the name of plugin that provides a toolbar on the top of tabbar?

  3. @VeGeek: the one right above my tabbar is firebug. The one above that is a toolbar of delicious bookmarks.

  5. What Firefox addon provides the yellow and red bars in the status bar, and what do those do?

  7. The toolbar just above the tabs is actually from the “Web Developer” add-on.

  8. Hehe. And I spend most of my time trying to save browser real-estate, hiding every possible chrome Firefox lets me.

  10. You should also think about giving the author a little more. He’s working on raising funds so he can have a sabbatical and finish up a ton more projects related to computer history: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1019371045/the-jason-scott-sabbatical

  14. You should send copies to Ward Christenson and Randy Seuss, since they hold the CBBS trademark. Back when I ran sixhub, which may have been the first unix based BBS, I learned a lot for those guys.
