Rum Runners

I submitted the following five-cent review of Rum Runners in Raleigh, for Barstar.com. We’ll see if it gets posted.

You pay a premium when you visit Rum Runners — from the $5 cover charge, to the $4.50 plastic Solo cup of Guinness, and of course for the $2-5 request per song you’ll fork over to the pianist(s). However, the point of going to a place like Rum Runners is to have fun, and this is certainly a place to do it. It gets packed in the summertime, so if you’re afraid of a little sweat in your beer, this isn’t your place. But if you want to get together with a group of friends, sing classic songs with an added touch of humour, and watch the bawdy jokes made at the expense of birthday girls and brides-to-be, this is your place; overall, it’s a lot of fun.

50 Million!

So, I touted 25 Million, so I might as well cheer twice as much about the news that Firefox has achieved 50 million downloads.

Was talking to a coworker about it yesterday. I think he’s planning to install it on his laptop this weekend.

Sorry, don’t have any new favourite extensions to recommend this time — these milestones are coming along so fast that I haven’t had time to find new extensions that I like, between them!
