The last entry in Nederlog was two days ago
and especially persons with ME who are interested in
trying out B12 may be interested in that.
I will write more about it this month, with
information about vitamins, suppliers, and prices, that probably is in
most respects most useful for those who live in or around Amsterdam, but
may be useful to others, in that I do intend to be fairly precise, and I
also intend to make some remarks on how this relates to science.
For today, I only have some news about
the site and about browsers.
1. The site
I note from the statistics on my Danish site that
several files fail to load, with a notification that these files are
absent, which I noted because people tried to get these files and were
This I don't understand, since they are there, and I
can get them unproblematically. It concerns my notes to
Utilitarianism, that start here
and proceed from there by way of the arrows at the top
of the file to the other four files of remarks, to 460 Kb text in all.
If you really want to get them, and can't find them
even now on my Danish site, try my Dutch site:
and if that also fails please
mail me, for then something odd is
happening, that I would like to inquire into.
Incidentally, the two sites are mirrors of each other:
There may be some on the one that is not on the other, but if so, it
probably is not a part of the regular site, or indeed I made a mistake.
Also, I should say that quite recently the provider of
the Dutch site has changed the urls for all home pages on the site: It
This is not my doing, and it is a recent change made
by the provider, and the old links should keep working for the time
being, since the provider - in fact: Dutch Telecom KPN, not the
excellent provider named "xs4all" that I joined in 1996: excellence has
totally evaporated since it got sold in 2002 - says it will re-direct.
Another file that unaccountably failed to load for
some is this, on the nonsense that
appeared on the MECFS-forum, that has also been there since 18 July
2010, since when, and because of which, I was removed from that forum:
Judge for yourself - it still seems to me I was totally justified to
speak up against the manner of bullshit I did speak up against.
Then, since people download it, I added some to
which contained little for this year, and still does,
though a little more than before, and namely because I have kept up with
the additions to the site quite well this year, in this file:
I did write no or very little in Dutch this year, for
my site(s), so there is no Dutch news for 2011. (There may be later,
especially if I get less ill. Else I
2. Browser news
I have kept notice in Nederlog of the changes in
Firefox since its version 1.5 in 2006,
and last mentioned it May 20, when it got to
4.01, since when it has jumped to Firefox 5.0.
To me, Firefox 5.0 seems much like 4.01, and I have
read on the internet that the main reason for the jump is to generate
publicity, which may be true, but then it is a much better browser than
MS IE, that I don't use, because I really don't like it.
Thus, I want to block ads, especially such as move,
since I find ads offensive and usually also very stupid, ugly and
impertinent claims on my time and attention anyway. Well, this is easy
with the Addons of Firefox, and indeed also with the addons on
This also is a really nice browser, with more
facilities than Firefox. I provided the link to its site, and here is
the opening paragraph on their opening page:
The SeaMonkey® Project
The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to
develop the SeaMonkey all-in-one internet application suite (see
below). Such a software suite was previously made popular by Netscape
and Mozilla, and the SeaMonkey project continues to develop and
deliver high-quality updates to this concept. Containing an Internet
browser, email & newsgroup client with an included web feed reader,
HTML editor, IRC chat and web development tools, SeaMonkey is sure to
appeal to advanced users, web developers and corporate users.
I like it a lot, and use its HTML-editor called
Composer, and sometimes its email application as well. This is also why
I changed the notification on my opening page to read:
This site is
best viewed in
Mozilla Browsers at 1024*768 pixels ***
The browser is mostly like Firefox, though I like
Seamonkey's standard appearance better than Firefox's, and the one
setback I should mention is that Seamonkey has fewer Addons than
Firebug, for example. But you can
Seamonkey, and it's nice to have an "all-in-one internet application
suite", with a WYSIWYG html-editor and e-mail client and more.)
If you care at all for having a decent html-editor (I
do), it is well worth looking into SeaMonkey, and it is a pleasant and
well-designed internet-browser as well, also with better help than
Firefox, that has the unfortunate habit of referring you to its website,
where there is lots of help, but it is not well organized nor well
written, and needs too much time to find things out.
