    I haven’t really tested firecat. I downloaded a version once and thought it had some very interresting features. Problem was, I didn’t have any real use for it.

    But now I do, and that GSI extension sounds like a fun tool for 1st-year students to play with.

    Nice set of FF add-ons, too bad some add ons have limited hardware support. The sec audit bit is nice.

    Very cool program! Don’t have any real use for it but I bet there is someone on this blog that could find a beneficial use for it.

    Quick side note,
    Does anyone else have the problem with the math/anti-spam box for posting. It seems like everytime I post it redirects me to the “I guess you didn’t pass math” page regardless of what I put (the correct answer mind you).

    @ eM3rC

    This is largely due to the thinking breaks you take while typing in your answer. Guess the checking mechanism forgets the correct answer and just prompts you again (deleting your typed message, use CTRL+A and CTRL+C before hitting the submit comment button helps having to retype)

    @Pantagruel
    Sorry for the random switches in some of my posts. I tend to have an idea then think of something else while I’m typing and tend to just tie it in.

    Figured out the Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V after the first couple of times but still find it really annoying.
