Those 20 centimeters of random ASCII? That's supposed to be a barcode. Thank you, incompetent parking ticket-dispenser programmer!

This is a slim CD jewelcase. The little strip of plastic never works to open it so I just pressed on the wrapping where there's a hole in the case on the back, and it ripped open like this. It's little things like this that make my days better.

This post was inspired by the recent hype about Mozilla's Prism
, and Site-Specific Browsers in general. For those not in the know: a Site-Specific Browser is a browser (or a browser window as we'll see later on) thats only purpose is to display a single website to help integrate it into the desktop environment. This is useful for web applications (which seem to be all the rage now); sites that serve a single function, like a mail or calendar application, a browser-based RSS aggregator etc.
I've been an avid Opera user since...6.x, I think, so I didn't really want to have to use Mozilla for an SSB. I was thinking, with Opera's immense
customizability, there just has to be
a solution without getting a separate app. I think I got pretty close.
