Happy New Year!

Happy New Year (Randomage)!

I went to a great NYE party hosted hosted by my old swim-buddy Jay. He whipped up an amazing spread and we drank and (in a rather unusual departure from our normal activities) watched porn (the ladies were just as fascinated by Alisha Klass' talents as the boys were). At midnight we all piled out on the deck, drank bubbly and sang Auld Lang Syne.
Jay passed out sometime after that and the ladies wrote stuff on his forehead in lipstick. Good times.

All Music Guide gave my band's album a good review!

And Frito wrote to tell me how to speed up Firefox...which, if you're on a PC you should be using 'cause it rulz. Here's whatcha do:

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

1.Type about:config into the address bar and hit return.

2. In the Filter search, type network.http.pipelining. Set the value to true.

Set network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

3. In the Filter search, type network.http.proxy.pipelining. Set the value to true.

4. Lastly, right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set its value to 0. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!
