If you're a Firefox user, do the widgets on the right-hand sidebar slow down the page tremendously when you scroll down? I'm trying to switch to Firefox, and they seem to be doing that to me.

Use this as an open thread. What's on your mind?

[Update] What did you guys think of the debate?

[Update II] I'll let Paul Rosenberg speak for me:

This debate was Obama's whole campaign in miniature: morally ambiguous, a slew of missed opportunities for devastating blows, and a fundamental lack of a well-crafted plan, but a good-enough strategic posture smoothly executed to pull out a tie, which is all he really needed at this point in time.

Meanwhile, the focus groups picked Obama for the win by overwhelming margins. Eight years of outrages perpetrated against the American people, and the voters prefer the guy who doesn't attack his opponent or act like anything's seriously wrong with America? Sometimes I honestly believe the voters are idiots.

I use Firefox on my Mac, and I can't say that I've noticed the widgets slowing anything down. But maybe I've just gotten used to it; I'm so desperate to hold on to Zotero that I'm willing to put up with pretty much anything.

Also on my mind: how wonderful fall is, how pathetic McCain is, how embarrassed for my country Palin makes me, how I'm a really, really bad lecturer, and how this coffee is DEEElicious.

Yeah, it doesn't seem to make a difference on the public computer I'm using now. I think my computer just really doesn't like Firefox for some reason.

We're going to smash McCain tonight. Just watch. I've got $20 riding on this election, and I don't like losing.

It seems to work fine on my Firefox.

However, the liberal links seem to slow down my attention span. Any suggestions?

The widgets load slow on mine (I'm on FF, too), but it doesn't slow down the rest of the page (except comments, sometimes).

Unfortunately, the debate tonight conflicts with Friday night services, but you bet I'll be queueing it up on c-span as soon as I'm home.

I've got $20 riding on this election, and I don't like losing.

Would that the stakes were so low....

Scott, you might want to take a look at this, this, this, this, this, this, this, or this -- all of which are conservative/libertarian/Republican-leaning blogs or bloggers I link to.

Ahist, the comments thing is controlled by an external server and is very buggy, but it's a free service so I'm not complaining. As long as the widgets aren't slowing down your page, I'll leave them up.

Jeremy, don't take the comment too seriously. I was just harassing you. :)

Ah, I see -- in that case, I'll give the other response I was considering:

...drink some coffee?

The United States Government is now accomplices in Fraud

Darma reviewed by: Jesse Hemingway

The United States Government is accomplices in Fraud, the major premise stated by the bailout theater playing in Washington D.C. The opening line is this Bush age sequel of fear driven surreal drama “Companies need credit to make payroll”. That opening line is a comment of Fraud. It is a violation of all labor laws, for a company to use labor without the means to compensate for the labor; the legal definition is called Fraud. In all of the Bush age productions FEAR is always the main plot in their fictional drama series.
