Installed Firesomething today for my Firefox browser.

Writing this from my "USC LightSpider" browser ;-) ... For changing your browser name also, install firesomething on your mozilla-based browser too (what!!!!! you still use Internet Explorer.. shame on you!!)

P.S. as a nice trick, add MicroSoft , Internet, and Explorer to the list of options in firesomething and viola.. you have more interesting browser names :-)

Interesting Quote.

I clicked on Wanda and this is what she said:

You see, I consider that a man's brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose. A fool takes in all the lumber of every sort he comes across, so that the knowledge which might be useful to him gets crowded out, or at best is jumbled up with a lot of other things, so that he has difficulty in laying his hands upon it. Now the skilful workman is very careful indeed as to what he takes into his brain-attic. He will have nothing but the tools which may help him in doing his work, but of these he has a large assortment, and all in the most perfect order. It is a mistake to think that that little room has elastic walls and can distend to any extent. Depend upon it there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.
-- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, "A Study in Scarlet"

Nice thing, I'd say.
