I decided to try out Chrome last night because Firefox was being a slow resource hog and it just doesn't do gmail or other Ajax things well on my computer. 1GB RAM. IE7 is also fairly slow. And by slow I mean system response rather than page loading. Chrome worked fairly well. I'm slightly worried about my Google overlords controlling my life. But I do think I'll be trying Chrome out a bit more, at least until I get more RAM.
- Why aren't bidets a common feature in American household plumbing? They really are billions of times better, both environmentally and practically, than the alternative. Hmm. It seems bidet attachments may be rather economical. Further research will have to be done.
- So I've been poking around while waiting for some stuff at work, I've been looking into recycled toilet paper. It seems that, for once, Greenpeace is actually getting something done on an environmental issue. Huh.
- I think R is a lot more into the environment than me. Now, keep in mind, I used to canvass for a couple environmental groups. I care. But she's, uh, very into it.
- We talked about CFLs the other day. They are, generally, a great idea, but what about the mercury? And the workers in the factories producing them? And the packaging. Can't be oblivious to all the problematic issues involved with their production. Not merely the dangerous aspect of it, but the general conditions of factory labor in those countries.
- I'm pro-nuclear. Everything, in the end, is about trade-offs. I think the costs of nuclear are less than the other viable alternatives at the end of the day. I'm not exactly a policy analyst and don't have all the facts at my fingertips, nor am I oblivious to the concerns nuclear waste raises.
