1. Monospaced font in Gmail

    This is primarily for my own reference. To get a monospaced font in gmail, add this to your firefox userContent.css file:

    textarea.tb {

    font-family: monospace !important;
    font-size: 12px !important;

    I just read a rather lengthy discussion on reddit about current US broadband speeds and how they're lagging way behind most all of the asian and EU markets. They quote the average broadband (download) speed in the US as 1.6 Mbps. Japan - 61 Mbps. South Korea - 45 Mbps ...

    Anyway - I just thought I'd share this pic. A ...

  6. IE == OS?

    I was browsing our company's MSDN subscriber downloads page this afternoon and noticed that MS has Internet Explorer filed in the "Operating Systems" section of the downloads tree.

  7. Spammers are getting a sense of humor

    Here's the subject line of an email that just slipped through our spam filter at work into our webmaster inbox:

    Now *that's* funny.

  8. Warning...geek humor ahead...

    I had a rather humorous email interchange with an ISP sales guy I've been working with for a new branch office. Along with business-class cable internet service, I requested 1 static IP address for the new office. The install date for the service is tomorrow, so I emailed our ...
