Firefox 4 Release Candidate Released!

If you are a firefox user, I would recommend upgrading from 3.XXX to 4 now.  The release candidate is solid and an improvement.  When 4 is finally officially released, it will simply upgrade the Release Candidate version.  For those unfamiliar, a Release Candidate version is essentially the final beta version before the official new release comes out.  Typically, there is very little difference between the two.

Frustration lifted!!

The eeePC netbook problem has been resolved.  The culprit was a bad memory stick causing the issues.  Just got a PC from Georgia to look at and solved that issue as well.  (Yes, it is cheaper to UPS a desktop computer to and from Georgia to Pennsylvania and pay me than it is to run down the street to see the G**k S***d from a certain retail chain)  The week started out with crappy, annoying problems and ends with solutions!  Next week, we'll see what happens when the motherboard for a Gateway Desktop comes in and that repair starts.

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.
