  1. Outstanding article. There’s a lot of good information here, though I did want to let you know something – I am working on Ubuntu with the up-to-date beta of FireFox, and the design of your site is kind of quirky for me. I can understand the articles, but the navigation doesn’t function so great.

    Thanks for the comment. I’m on Windows with Firefox and it looks and works fine… I’ll have to look into the Ubunto side of things in my ever decreasing spare time.. ;-)
