I have never thought one second that I would blog about two things I am really passionate about: Firefox and flying! What has Firefox got to do with flying anyway, one would be tempted to ask! My passion about aviation and flying dates back to the mid-seventies when I skipped classes to walk miles just to to see the only plane that landed in the area once a week (see my post about localization). And then BBC computers with Basic as a programming language when I studied in Scotland. And Windows 95 and the internet and my first (really) personal computer! Those were times when I spent a whole night trying to configure Windows NT without even having a network! And those times when I discovered online games and the famous Red Baron, the combat flight simulator that occupied most of my nights during those Compuserve (my internet service provider) times.
