Blog editor for firefox

  • 0
I installed scribefire and I was amazed how good it is. I'v used flock for blogging which is great but I don't use all of its features so I stay with the fox. Anyway I wanted something to post to a blog from firefox. Nothing fancy. Just something that would do the job. Instead I find a fully featured blog editor extension.

From Scribefire's website:
ScribeFire is an extension for the Mozilla Firefox Web Browser
that integrates with your browser to let you easily post to your blog: you can drag and drop formatted
text from pages you are browsing, take notes, and post to your blog.

Facebook chat with Pidgin

While msn was (and still is) not working I started using facebook chat. I had the idea why not use pidgin? After I goooooogled it I found this No messing around api keys. Just install the deb or exe. It works on ubuntu fine.

Once you install it add a new account. Find facebook chat (has the facebook icon). Enter details and it should log you in. It even pulls photos of friends. Neat.

Installed xubuntu

Well I dropped kde for xfce a few days ago wanting a change and taking advantage of long term support of xubuntu 8.04.

I tried switched on compositing so I could use Avant Window Navigator (bottom of the bellow screenshot). I have blogged about awn before. Its a great dock like application for navigating windows and lunching applications. Even though I have used it sometime ago with gnome I noticed a performance drain on xfce.

If your using awn with xfce have you noticed you cant drag and drop desktop icons/launchers in to the launcher? Well to do so you need to create a launcher the normal way. Right click desktop and choose 'Create launcher' *Below*. Find the program you want to create a launcher for by typing in the name. Once you have chosen it you (THE IMPORTANT BIT) must shorten the name to one word then remove the comment. After clicking create you may now drag it to awn.

I really like to keep things efficient so I turned all the compositing stuff off. That means no extras just xfce4. Nice and fast.

Xubuntu is just like ubuntu however the install went blank during the final step and my windows partition wasn't loaded. I had to edit fstab myself. I know 'Boohoo' says the bash master.

Svyturys Baltas Wheat Beer

This is a Hefeweizen from Lithuanian by a brewery called Svytury which merged with Utenos Alus and now apart of the Carlsberg Group. Talk about beer monopoly.

My bottle was 5.0% however some places on the web list it as a 5.2%. Its a cloudy yellow coloured drink with a short foamy head when pouring. Banana with citrus hints aroma. Tastes lighter than most other wheat beers iv tried. Its still sweet and yeasty like other wheat beers but it could be better. It says on the bottle:

"it may be flavoured with a piece of fresh lemon"

I guess that would give it something extra. Especially for people who are not into 'real beer'.

Funny enough it does taste like my second wheat beer I made a while ago and also Iv never had a Lithuanian drink.

Rating: Okay.
As you can see am a professional at rating beer
Overall: Light wheat beer. Its not the best example of Hefeweizen but that doesn't stop it being drinkable/enjoyable.
