Re: [Stats] Subscription Filter Stats

According to my number crunching script, my subscription surpassed half a million subscribers in June. Wow. :surprised: The growth in download numbers has been pretty much linear for the last 18 months. The GNUplot fit tells me the numbers increase by about 220000 downloads per month - or about 2500...

Absolutely not. ABP is one of the most Gecko-friendly extensions there are (thanks Wladimir!) and
works in SeaMonkey, Songbird, Flock, Thunderbird as well... there even is a K-Meleon version.

Internet Explorer is not a Gecko application though, so it won't work there. 8)

Re: How to shoot yourself in the foot, Creative Labs-style

Creative makes really good hardware. But for some reason I don't understand,
they don't seem to get that drivers are equally important. And as driver suckage
still goes on over half a decade after the release of windows XP, I stopped
recommending their stuff. It's a real pity.
