I’m very, very crankie right now. I swear to god, I hope they’re quick about fixing it. Safari is feeling mighty close…
jQuery Lightbox (Balupton Edition) 1.3.5
jQuery Lightbox (Balupton Edition) WP plugin 0.5
There are a million lightbox implementations out there and almost as many corresponding WordPress plugins.

Google Gears 0.5.4.2
You know what would be really faboo? If the devs for Google Gears figured out it was worthwhile looking at the non-compatibility issue with Firefox 3.1 and Google Gears. I know, I know, it’s free software and there are a million other things to get to. And they’ve said (unofficially) that by the time Firefox 3.1 gets out of beta they’ll be ready. The only reason I’m asking is this:
Anyway, FF 3.1 makes a big difference in shaving off my waiting time, especially here in WordPress-land. And incidentally, the kind folks at WordPress have incorporated Google Gears functionality to offload the download…load. Works great on WebKit/Safari, but since the Gears guys haven’t worked out the FF 3.1 compatibility yet, we’re still waiting.
Not a big rush, really…but it’s Valentine’s Day. Blow me a kiss, boys.
