Firefox 4 scheduled for late March release

All indications are that Firefox 4 will be released before the end of the month.  Currently in beta (for almost a year), the new version appears to be a good upgrade over the current version.  You can download the Firefox 4 Beta here, it is essentially the final version except for minor tweaks that may be forthcoming.


Very Frustrating......

Currently trying to restore a eeepc 1005ha netbook that does not want to cooperate.  Research has shown that there are tons of annoying issues in trying to restore this system.  Wish me luck, going on my second day dealing with this netbook.  Thank the heavens that tablets are putting these computers to a nice death.
