  1. That is totally sweet. Glad to see that you’re taking advantage of new technologies. Keep up the good work!

  2. Is the link working properly? When I click on it, it merely takes me to the beginning of the page, and does not start up the Firefox plugin.

    Do you have Firefox 2 or Internet Explorer 7? If you don’t, the link will not work. I’ve posted links to upgrade your current browser version in the more instructions area of the post.
