Firebug and Firefox 3 Beta 5 on Kubuntu Hardy Heron

After a long day of working in the yard, I sat down at my computer after the kids had gone to bed and decided that rather than falling asleep with my finger on the Z key while coding (which somehow leads to buggy code), I'd be better off doing something less involved. I opted to upgrade my Kubuntu Gutsy Gibbon install to the newest Kubuntu Hardy Heron release.

Install Snippits for text replacement on Kubuntu Gutsy

One of my favorite sites, Lifehacker, ran an article on a text replacement tool for Linux called Snippits a day or two ago. Basically, you type in a small bit of text, like "sig" and hit a key combination and the Snippits program looks up the text you've designated to replace that and it swaps it into place. Very nice. And very timely. I'd had a conversation with a friend the day before about how much I wanted that functionality.
