The best thing about Firefox 2.0 (in my opinion) is the built in spell check. No more composing in Word and pasting into a text box, or misspelling words because you typed a quick post in the browser.

It comes in handy at work, where we constantly enter text into our development tool (Zentrack). My only complaint is that it only checked Text Areas and not all input fields…

Well, to fix that, just type about:config in the URL area of a Firefox window and then change the following value:

  • layout.spellcheckDefault = 2 turns on Firefox 2’s spell-checking in input fields as well as text areas.

The latest issue of WIRED has a piece where they asked several horrror/SciFi/Fantasy writers to write a story in 6 words. There are some amazingly funny entries, so check them all out. On the web, they also have a section with stories that didn’t make the print version (and most rightly so).

My favorites:

Failed SAT. Lost scholarship. Invented rocket.
William Shatner

Gown removed carelessly. Head, less so.
Joss Whedon

Machine. Unexpectedly, I�d invented a time
Alan Moore
