Intelligent browsing is out there. Or so the Firefox crop cir... on TwitpicfflogoI can always count on my friend Scott to come up with a good link or photo when I’m not in the mood or don’t have time to post something to my blog.

On side note, my older ‘backup’ notebook computer, the one I was planning to take to the boat, crashed last night. From an initial look, it could be hardware (hard drive) or a Windows 7 OS problem. I’ll scrounge up the CD tonight and try running ‘repair.’ (Now this would also be a good time to remind those reading this to back up their data … something I haven’t done recently.)
