Three quick questions for the groupmind:

How can I find an art print (preferably a long thin one) of the Remarkables mountains in New Zealand? My google-fu is failing me. I've found, like, one print, and it's not all that nice and it's expensive.

At one point when typing a predictive text message, I accidentally moved the cursor after the "a" of "and", and so ended up with "aof" ("nd" coming up as "of" as its first choice). I don't know what I did then, flicked the cursor away and back maybe, but now my phone thinks "aof" should be the first-choice word for the "and" key combination, and it's driving me mad. Any ideas how I can retrain it? Nokia N80, if that helps.

And, should I get Firefox 2.0? I've heard mixed things, and I've just got all my extensions set up how I want them...

And a link to reward you: Global Orgasm. They would like everyone to have an orgasm on 22 Dec, while concentrating their thoughts on peace, to try and send massive positive vibes out to the world. Hee. Oddly, the "Science" bit of the website refers to a Global Consciousness study at Princeton which they say backs their idea up. Oh, the website will play cheesy music at you - fair warning.

The flat directly across the landing from my best friend's is up for sale. I'm so tempted. But it's a tenement, which I didn't want, and in an entirely different part of town from where I wanted. Argh.

1) http://www.flickr.com/ for a photo and get your own print done.
2) Ask Nokia

They would like everyone to have an orgasm on 22 Dec, Hmmm! would need a hand with that one ;-)

It's a bit vague -- 'at a time of your choosing'.
That effectively gives a 48 hour window. I hope the global consciousness whatsit doesn't mind waiting.

Firefox 2: not sure. I have it on Ubuntu, and it's okay. I haven't yet bothered doing an actual upgrade for OS X or Windows yet.

I'm not sure about "doing it in the window" you could get prosecuted for that ;-)

Firefox 2 does fix some security holes in 1.5. Also, the tab bar is slightly improved (it no longer shrinks tabs until the title is totally invisible). Some extensions/themes may not work. If you have Tab Mix Plus, you will have to update it (painless, Firefox will give you the chance to check for and install updates) and tweak the settings so they are back the way you want them.

On Linux, it runs exactly as 1.5 did. On Windows, my impression is that it is *slightly* slower.

I would install it.

Don't go for a property you don't want 100%. It's not worth the hassle or the regret.

A several lovely panoramic posters are here (scroll down for the wide ones):

And they're only $15 (NZD) with tube. Of course, you'll pay more than that for shipping, but such is life.

Firefox 2: on the mac at least I don't like it. The toolbar icons are smaller, and yet the top of the page is lower. The tabs are bigger for no good reason, with wasted space at the top. As on a laptop, screen space isn't plentiful, I'm going to stick with 1.5 here.
