Firefox bann r

I finally gave in and added a Firefox bann r to the homepage. One by Keith Gable (Ziggy), found on his Spread Firefox blog. And it fits in quite nicely.

I'm not sure about these ideas going around Spread Firefox about spreading a "cloud of mystery" about Firefox's release date. The bann r I'm using is a bit mysterious, and it mentions the release date, but I have decided to make it a link to the Firefox anyway. If someone see the bann r today, and it isn't a link, they might forget about it, and keep a memory of this funny fox thing that's just being annoying on a website.

If I make it a link, they can click it, and then they're obviously much more likely to actually get Firefox. The whole Firefox development and marketing effort is leading up to November 9th, but getting it now is still good.

Another thing that annoys me: affiliate links. I don't know about anyone else, but seeing the word "affiliate" in an URL with a big id number next to it make me less likely to click the link. I know, people are trying to get credit for what they're doing, which is good, but caring about the points too much is silly.

Meh. I think you should use 'meh' more often. But meh, that's just my opignion. Firefox rocks. Spyware doesn't. I have spyware =[ / Comment from Tunnie on 29 Oct 2004 at 01:40.

Sorry to be predictable, but: meh. The practise of typing "meh", or "mehing" as it's called, gets meh on the search results in Google for meh so people find this page by doing a meh-search. Meh. / Comment from Robert Marshall / [Admin] on 30 Oct 2004 at 17:46.
