telecom, technology and the occasional floobergeist

I’ve got an abundance of bits and pieces of canadian telecom and internet experience, and I am thrilled to be in a place in time when all is changing, technology is developing, and the status quo is being disrupted. 

Floobergeist is a word that is beginning to defy definition.  The more I roll that smooth pebble around, the more it becomes to mean. Floobergeist started out as the magic dust that turns dreams into ideas.  And then it began to encompass the zing that happens when you have conversations about those ideas. And now, it’s the whole evolution from dream to conversation, with each step improving the later and the former along the way.

Everyone aspires to good conversations. They can lead you to adventures you’ve never imagined, and to people you can twig with.

Let’s have a good conversation…


Making the Browser Migration: Flock to Firefox

I never thought I’d do it… switch away from Flock…. but for some insane reason, it’s eating all the memory on my Dell work-laptop. To the tune of over 200,000 bits of memory. Really really. It was so painful yesterday I had to convince a co-worker not to hang up on me in Netmeeting. I could feel his pain.

And now, it’s the rather annoying exodus of bookmarks and add-ons and settings that need to make the trek to Firefox as well.
I already miss my little Flock bits. But I can’t take the appetite it has any longer for my memory.

To the Flock Gods: Please fix the memory leaks!!!
