Mozilla now has form spelling

I wrote last month about the need for textarea spell checking in Mozilla.

Well, it looks like the wait is over.

A working solution has been posted in the Mozillazine forums by Torisugari. I've loaded it onto my Firebird 0.7 build and it's been working great so far. I encourage anyone wanting this functionality in Mozilla or Firebird to give this a try.

Update: 2004.06.18

I've posted a note on how to get the spell check extension working in Firefox 0.9.

I've recently got a Seti@home account (yes, I know I am way behind on the geek curve with this one :-) ).

I've always had fun reading about people tweaking their systems to reduce the amount of time that it takes to compute a Seti@home work unit. Some might almost consider this optimization a sport of sorts. Anyway, my old Pentium II hasn't been doing so bad. I'm been averaging just over 18 hours of CPU time for each completed work unit. Here's to dusting off old computers and putting them to use.

Crazy November weather

Here in Bloomington, we've been experiencing typical schizophrenic autumn weather. It was into the 70s yesterday and today, and the weather will stay quite warm for a couple more days. Of course, the weather will cool down later; We're expecting temptress near freezing later in the week.

No matter how goofy the weather gets this year, I doubt it will be anything like Bloomington's November in 1950. A quick glance at's record highs and lows for the month of November shows that it reached 84 on the 1st in 1950 and just a little over three weeks later, on the 24th, it got down to -1.
