i'm switching back to firefox, chrome becomes very slow very easily, eating lots of ram. vimium was the only reason I was still using chrome, firefox version is too simple. until i found vimfx, which is a better clone of vimium. now i need to get used to firefox's developer toolbar.

did some reading about lift framework's view first model. it reminds me ssi of cgi era, i'm not sure it's a better approach than tranditional mvc, but surely worth trying. scala is a must learn language on my list. cloudbees supports lift (not verified).

netbeans 7.3 is out, but i'm getting more and more comfortable with vim.

re-studying Functional Programming Principles in Scala, this is a good introduction for functional programming.

registered a cloudbees account in order to test lift framework. cloudbees supports many frameworks, really impressive.

finished assignment 1 for Functional Programming Principles in Scala, Ex3 counting change really needed a google, after thinking a whole night. There's a section on SICP mentions this problem. anyways, mission accomplished.

there's another course: Learn to Program: Crafting Quality Code, I choosed it because it uses python.

one note on IDLE, open on windows:

$ python -m idlelib.idle
