excerpt from landlady’s letter

31 Mar

I thought that this was a very charming part of a letter from our landlady since she’s going to be out of town:

I hope that the cat will not be too needy in our absence. I do have someone stopping over to feed him. The only other thing is Salvatore the box turtle. He lives in the pond and wanders around the garden. Occasionally he falls down the stairs and ends up on your patio. If you see him there please put him back in the pond. He can’t climb back up the stairs by himself. He doesn’t bite.


firefox text bug fixed

12 Mar

I’ve had a very difficult time for the last several months with a font issue in Firefox. Any time there was bolding, italics or a link on a page, there would be a large space before and after these or they would run into and overlap the regular text. After searching online for endless hours, calling Apple, posting the issue to Mozilla forums, and even asking the Firefox representatives at the SXSW trade show today, I had no luck. Then, tonight on a whim, I just deleted and reinstalled Arial, and that miraculously solved the problem. I am so relieved to have finally found the solution!
