I’m counting down the days… only three weeks until my wife and I take off to pay a family visit to her hometown, which just happens to be Kailua, Hawaii. Oh man, I can already feel the silky sands of Lanikai beach between my toes. For the unfortunates stuck in the colder climes, here’s a fun pick-me-up: I use Firefox as my primary browser, and have installed the ForecastFox extension for it, which gives a graphical display of the week’s weather in the status bar at the bottom of the browser. In anticipation of our trip, I’ve set the zip code for it to check to “96734”, the address of our Hawaiian relatives.
Ahh, that’s better. I can just close the blinds, turn up the heat, and I’m there.
