When I called Commerce Bank this afternoon, the lady at the call center who answered the call said that they just had a power outage because of a big storm and they were scrambling to get everything back online. Then a little later, the heavy downpour came my way. Fortunately, there wasn't a power outage here.
A bit of a victory for the Firefox camp: Scott Berkun, former IE developer/designer, switches to Firefox. There are also some good suggestions in the comments section on customizing the Firefox UI with extensions.
While on the topic of web browsers, I saw this mentioned in the K-Meleon forums: Dr. Orca. It looks a lot like Avant Browser, but uses Gecko instead of IE as the rendering engine. Installed it this evening to give it a go and even though it's still an alpha version, its UI already has a lot more polish and features than K-Meleon's. We're going to be spoiled for choices in the Gecko-based Windows web browser arena.
