Toggle Google Homepage Module

I completed a new module for the Personalized Google Homepage. This one allows you to recoup the space at the top of the screen by hiding the google search bar. It also lets you select from a bunch of predefined quick navigation links that you can have appear at the top of the page. The documentation and installer can be found on the Toggle Google Homepage Module homepage.

This module does not work in IE. I took a quick survey of likely users including myself and couldn't find one that used IE. Incidentally, 50% of those surveyed stated that IE users were communists. Perhaps McCarthy (that raving nutter) was right. Anyway, unless someone asks, this module will remain a Firefox only module.

Share and Enjoy

Prophet of the Flying Spaghetti Monster Appears on my Pancake

IMG_1700 The story of the Flying Spaghetti Monster has regularly been misinterpreted as the parable of a dinner time deity. But this can no longer be the case. On a recent Sunday morning, as my family sat down to eat home made pancakes, we witnessed the appearance of the Prophet of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (PotFSM) in pancake form. I knew immediately that it was the PotFSM because pursuant to the 7th "I'd Really Rather You Didn't" of the gospel of the FSM, I didn't hear any voices. Also I had a brief vision of a Pirate saying "Arrrrrrg".

I was immediately struck by two primitive conflicting urges: Hunger and Greed. On the one hand I could slather the PotFSM in syrup and satisfy a temporary desire for carbohydrates. On the other hand, I could sell the PotFSM on eBay and probably make a few grand. Just think:

This auction is to save the pancakieness of one 2 inch pancake bearing the resemblance of the Prophet of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. If my minimum bid of $10,000 is not met by noon Thursday I shall cover the PotFSM in faux maple syrup and feast on his likeness.

The PotFSM will remain in my freezer until one of these desires gets the better of me.
