"Random quotes"

Was struck by two fairly random quotes in the media yesterday. Good advertising creates a problem and its solution. and Doubt is not the opposite of faith. Certainty is the opposite of faith.

"Firefox 3"

I know it’s still in beta, but Firefox 3 is looking really really nice. Really fast, funky drop-down preview/autocomplete thingy in the location bar, nice styling and look and feel. Lovely. Give it a whirl from Mozilla: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html PS It seems to co-exist fairly happily with FireFox 2 under Windows.

I really should implement comments. 🙂 Anyway, some early responses from friends. I’ve edited for brevity/anonynmity as I haven’t asked them if they mind!!

What an efficient organization – ordered the items, paid no more than I would have done at the supermarket (except for the postage, of course), and they arrived the next day! They offer bulk discounts too. I’d already decided that I am going to have a Fairtrade Easter this year, but it’s not always easy to track down Fairtrade items. But this site has a really good range of ethical goods (by which they mean “eco”, organic, and/or fairtrade) […]
