Well, that was nice...

More geeking. I geek between sending out job-apps, and have completed a new toy: a launcher for Firefox. Oh, btw, the Firefox thing is probably a big improvement, the Mozilla Firefox has the potential to achieve the Cuteness level of Tux. I think they should rebrand Thunderbird to Thunderfox for consistency, and then we can all chuckle about how the profiles are still stored in the directory ~/.phoenix.

At any rate, the script solves one of the big *nix issues I had with Firefox- managing multiple instances. See, if you had a window running, and then tried to launch another, it can't, because of a running profile issue. So I whipped up a perl script that checks for a running instance, and if it sees one, it uses a remote call to open the link in a new tab.

See? Geeky.
