WBWA (Web Browser Window Anonymous)

Hi. My name is Bernie, and I am a Web Browser abuser.

I thought I could handle it, and when Firefox introduced tabs, you know, it made it so much simpler to group things together, and I could have everything I kept referring to right there at my fingertips. But now... well, I just counted.

I have 46 firefox windows open, and that's because I killed some after the last firefox crash this morning. Also, 4 Safari windows. And each of these has multiple tabs. And then of course multiple finder windows, and terminal windows, and iTunes, and preview, and acrobat, and thunderbird... No wonder my poor computer starts slowing down.

I do a lot of research for stories I'm writing, and they all end up in live browser windows until I'm done the stories. Probably not the best way to do it.

So I'm cleaning up my act. I'm posting the URLs up here.

For the Steampunk/Mongol story:
