Sillyness

There is Only XUL

Most of my weblog readers will not find this very funny, but I’m compelled to share anyway.

If you open the DOM Inspector in Mozilla 1.0 and look at most of the native DOM Nodes (like the top level “window”) you will see the the following namespace URI:

http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul

Those open source software guys are so funny. You just can’t have fun like that with proprietary source.

Speaking of Open Source, I just downloaded and read a paper by the previously mentioned Lawrence Lessig, called Open Code And Open Societies: Values of Internet Governance. Despite it’s boring title, I thought it was a good lunch time read. Of course, I may just be crazy.

I also just found the "hidden tribute" to ghostbusters today whilst attempting some translation of firefox....I thought it was pretty funny too....I still start chuckling a little when I think about it....probably a lack of sleep thats causing it.
