That is a lot of reading ...

To follow my last post. Here is the list of interesting articles I fall upon today. As I already said. Today has been a very rewarding day for finding interesting articles. So, here it comes. I will not place them in order of preference but instead I will try to place them in order of accessibility (less geek to the geekiest) [The police to start analyzing our urine through the sewers](http://science.slashdot.org/science/07/08/22/2225225.shtml). That's the cherry on the sundae. If they bring their sample extraction device all the way to our houses. Not only they will be able to know who use what drugs but also what other consumer products we use. Then use the data for marketing purposes. That's the beginning of real privacy violation. And people worry about computers? [Get Rich Slowly](http://www.foldedspace.org/weblog/2005/04/get_rich_slowly.html). No comments, excellent reading. And this article really makes me believe again that [justbudget](http://justbudget.com) is totally appropriate and does help in financial Independence. Plasma VS LCD HTTV [comparison](http://apcmag.com/hdtv) Computing article ... lots of good points. last page is Linux Kernel stuff only, kinda technical. But the first two pages are interesting to anyone curious about computer history. [It brings a fresh point of view on the truth](http://apcmag.com/node/6735/). Linux lovers be careful. I knew XOrg had great optimization needs but this article simply make me wish I had something better than Linux to run [my favorite desktop environment](http://kde.org/). Call me ignorant but I don't even understand how a project like a free browser might need a CEO. This article explains it all. How is Mozilla Firefox making $US55million a year? [(and much more...)](http://apcmag.com/6054/firefox_ceo_speaks_out) [More Linux related articles](http://apcmag.com/kernelknowledge) from [apcmag](http://apcmag.com). I think today was the first time I was visiting their site and one of the reason I am blogging about it today is to make sure I will visit them again. And finally the article that brought me to their site. The [Linus Torvalds Interview on Linux 3.0](http://apcmag.com/7012/linus_torvalds_talks_about).

Accidental feature discovery in Firefox 2.0

So my programmer hands today made one of those mistakes who makes me discover new features. I hit Ctrl-Shift-T instead of Ctrl-t to open a new tab. result? It reopen the tab I had close last. With all Back history and everything. Try it out. Ctrl-w to close a tab, and Ctrl-Shift-T to reopen it. A feature that might be very useful in case you close a tab by mistake. I'm not sure If it's a new feature with 2.0. All my computers runs 2.0 now and I cannot test it with 1.5 but anyway, I thought it might be interesting to share it.
