My Latest Addiction

Every day you hear about people getting addicted to things like drugs, alcohol or even cigarettes. Being a geek though, I am a little modified in my addictions. See, I don't do drugs (never have), I don't smoke (anymore, gave it up cold turkey 10 years ago) and I only occasionally drink.

Instead, my addictions tend to orbit around computers. My latest however happens to be a plugin for the Fire Fox web browser called StumbleUpon. After installing the plugin and restarting your browser, go into the configuration and select all of the topics that you want to "stumble upon". I warn you though, there are an overwhelming number of topics but you can right click on each and open in a new tab or window to see what the types of sites it finds.

After you are done with the configuration, open a new tab and click the "stunble" button. It will then randomly select a site from the entire list of topics and display it for you. I have been building up my bookmarks for the past few weeks with an overwhelming number of links to things I have found useful and/or interesting. I suggest you give it a try, you might stumble upon something you could use too.

Sounds like an interesting plugin. Thanks for the heads up on it.
