Aloha!

Updates to all four extensions have been submitted to Mozilla. To my knowledge, all of them should be released tomorrow. Therefore, the homepage of each project has been updated to contain information regarding the newest (un-released) version. I’ve put in a lot of time fixing little bugs, and hopefully I didn’t cause any new ones! If I did screw something up, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Also, I will be making a new FacePAD video soon. Below, are the release notes of each extension.

New Venture for Lazyrussian

[tweetmeme source=”lazyrussian” style=”compact” only_single=false]

Greetings,

Since I am a physicist (more so than a programmer these days), I decided to start a “Modern Physics Discoveries for Laymen” blog with my fellow graduate students and friends. The result, The Isospin Blog (www.isosp.in).

The Isospin Blog was created to raise public awareness of the fascinating world of theoretical and experimental physics. We plan on achieving our goal by summarizing recently published papers in a clear, concise and comprehensible manner.

Thanks for checking it out!

Greetings!

On the evening of January 27th, FacePAD was published in PC World Magazine with all positive reviews. It was then re-purposed for the Washington Post newspaper and a slew of others. I just thought I’d share the news with all the FacePAD users!

Happy Birthday FacePAD and Email This!

FacePAD is 1 year old as of August 10, 2009.
Email This! is 3 years old as of August 2, 2009.

Can’t believe I’ve been doing extending firefox for that long…feels good though!

Anyway, I just just just got the email saying FacePAD v0.6.0 was accepted by Mozilla. It’ll take an hour or so before it is shows up in the public stream. If I’m still awake, I’ll make a post about it once I see that it’s public. If not, I’ll modify all the information relevant to v0.6.0 on this site and make the official post in the morning.

FacePAD v0.5.9 Released + New Logo

FacePAD v0.5.9 is officially released and available to download at Mozilla (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/8442). FacePAD v0.5.9 is the segue release to v0.6, which will boast support for most, if not all languages
supported by FacePAD.

Here’s what’s new in v0.5.9:

Preferences/Options are now available for FacePAD. You will need to specify your default Facebook language in this version before you begin using the extension.
Spanish and German are now supported.

Also, I’ve made a new logo for FacePAD – nice and simple.
