Long Weekend

This past weekend was a long weekend here in Canada, and so no updates. I saw the Blue Jays beat Texas on Friday, then went to see a band. Last night, I saw the IMAX film about Michael Jordan. It was fun, but clocked in at about 45 minutes long. Not much for $8. Picked up Eric Meyer’s excellent book, Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide, which I’m reading for work and for myself. Also picked up some other books, including Survivor, by Chuck Palahniuk, the author of Fight Club, and Volume 1 of the journals of Thomas Merton. I also picked up Triple Play 2001, for my Playstation, which is a fabulous game. It will have to tide me over now that the release of Playstation 2 has been delayed until practically Christmas, at least in Europe. Amazingly, in the spending orgy that was this weekend, I didn’t buy any new music. Unbelievable.

I just downloaded Preview Release 2 of Netscape 6. A little bit faster than PR1 on my Mac, but still feels bloated. My main interest is whether it will be as standards compliant as IE 5 for the Mac. It’s definitely better than the nightmare known as Netscape 4. Has anyone else had any experience with it?
