Actually, I tried the 64 bit installs of Firefox and Internet Explorer soon after I installed this Windows 7 64 bit Operating System. They were both pants and summarily removed from my hard drives and I haven’t revisited for over 2 years….
But now things seem on the up.
64-bit is now mainstream with a large 64-bit user base and fewer and fewer 32-bit applications seeing regular usage against the 64-bit versions. This is Firefox’s “about” info (above) from this browser. It’s called “Nightly”, and actually (whispers to one side), it’s very good…!!! Miles better than before, which made the machine crash….
Worked first time
Needed Flash plugins which were directly available, and work!
Worked okay with all my current plugins – Web Developer, Flagfox, Quirk SearchStatus and the rest. Amazing. They all worked!
Got it’s own icon
Installs into it’s own folder separate to Firefox
Carries over all Firefox settings & shortcuts.
Carries over all Firefox add-ons & plugins, if they work.
only needed a new Flash install to get it working the way it was on 32-bit
So now I’m going to try 64-bit browsing as a real test.
Firefox Add-ons: What is an Add-on? First things first. It’s now well known among the more savvy internet users, that the Firefox web browser is a fine piece of kit; secure, innovative and with a burgeoning user base that has seen Microsoft rise from it’s slumbers and put some serious damage control development into it’s...
I’ve just been adding a few scheduled postings into the Crawling Chaos website. For those of a mysterious bent, I initially forgot to give a title to the post. Now because of the way I’ve got permalinks set up on that site and because of the way that WordPress works with its defaults and because the post was the 666th made, the post got called:
I’ve left the page-slug at that but slightly renamed the actual posting to 666 – Spookhouse. This seems strangely appropriate given the early marketing we used around the time of the original Homunculus Equinox release, don’t you think?
Got a bit of a Crawling Chaos fan here. They’ve been putting out a few of our tracks and recently have stuck out a fair wodge from the original “Homunculus Equinox” & “The Big C” releases… At least there’s a backlink to the Crawling Chaos Website! This track is from The Big C....
It appears that finally, after much hesitation, the world is going to be able to enjoy the later works of Crawling Chaos which Jeff insisted should be called “Spookhoose“. These were recorded in the last half of the 80′s.
I’ve put a live version on the Crawling Chaos site of Yoni Suchon. This is quite a powerful sound with some small differences to the version on the Waqqaz release. It’s just Jeff & me pinning back everyone’s lugholes to the back wall. It seemed to have quite a favourable reception – well it would,...
Hi! Im Mark of High Density & Id like to thank Crawling Chaos for providing such a fantastic website. I have been listening to Crawling Chaos for a while now & they have provided me with much inspiration in my solo project. Although it is not directly influenced, I have learnt that doing something completley...
Jesse Willms Banned by Judge from Negative Option Selling – Assets Frozen!
CBC (with whom Willms has already had a tussle) in Canada are already broadcasting that local high-school athlete drop-out turned internet businessman of dubious repute, the self-styled and self-publicising entrepreneur & charitable Jesse Willms, has had some shackles applied to his business by the order, by a Seattle court, to freeze his assets (in case they’re needed to payout to his alleged victims and fines) and also to not use the negative option gambit in any of his websites.
CBC report on the FTC lawyer Robert Schroeder saying,
The judge also froze the assets of Willms and his companies
I'm not a Flim-flam guy!
This could be the main reason why CBC say that all his websites (that they know of, at least) are down and that his phone is dead. I’ve checked and the dismal self-publicity blogs are still running, which they would be I suppose, as they’re not selling anything except the idea that Willms is a “good guy”. The judge is Marsha J. Pechman, Federal Judge out of the Western District Court of Seattle according to the post I’ve linked to. It finishes with the words:
While Jesse Willms has not responded much to these accusations, he has hired many firms to engage in a positive PR and SEO campaign and consistently sends out news releases claiming that he has been assisting charities with financial donations. Additionally, there are at least a dozen “blogs” setup by Mr. Willms to counteract the negative press with positive SERPS.
This is exactly what this website and many others have been saying for over a year now! “Performance Marketing Insider” also states that:
Currently, according to news reports, there is a both a consumer and criminal investigation against Mr. Willms in Canada.
Well this is good! And only fair – fair to the thousands and thousands of people that feel duped by Willms’ activities. Roll on next year – Willms is scheduled for trial in the U.S. in July 2012. Should be sooner.
According to the CBC report, we see another aspect of Willms’ doings whereby he very rarely admits to any mistakes or wrong-doings. It’s always someone else’s fault, in his world. CBC say;
Willms has blamed unscrupulous business associates who he claims defrauded him by stealing credit card numbers in order to generate commissions with bogus sales.
What? All of them? All $457 million dollars worth?
All those local charities that Willms has been plugging his exploits with over the past year must surely be examining their credibility in the eyes of their donating public. This connection (and to fair, the charges are not proven yet) to Willms is starting to look very bad for them, people have long memories and mud does stick. Ask any politician!
Jesse Willms (r), in the source of the famous grinning shot.
Just Think Media Settles With Google Over Trademark Infringement Last year Jesse Willms threw the lawyer dogs at me which forced me to pull some posts. I’d been calling him a scammer which was obviously in clear contradiction of his (now public) self-vision as a charitable philanthropist. However yesterday, Google, who had originally sued 50...
Jesse Willms Ethics Hacked I got a auto-alert from a Scamraiders post from Justin Asking that a page on one of the plethora of Willms self-promotional websites has been tampered with – and sure enough it has! See here for the original comment from Justin Asking. Below is a screenshot of the hacked page, a...
