safari icons

Has anyone else noticed this? Safari 1.2 will update the icon of a file you are downloading to show it's progress. Internet Explorer did this first, and I really liked it. I'm glad to see Safari is doing it as well.

It'll also download more than 4 files at once now, and it also supports the "page-break-after: always;" css style. Can you say "dynamic publishing"? Cool. Combine this with the python addons to create pdf's straight from webkit and you've got some cool tech.

So Brents says in an offhand comment in a post that he just got a new Stratocaster. But he does this without telling anyone exactly what kind of Strat it is. I of course get the first comment on the page and instead of contributing some sort of insightfull comment about the actual topic of the post, I insist that he needs to tell us exactly what kind of Strat it is.

There are certain obligations you agree to when buying a Strat- one of which is to let other guitar players know exactly what kind of axe you got. Maple or rosewood neck? Sunburst or solid color? Is it used or is brand spanking new? What kind of pickups? Custom series, reissue, or standard? Or is it a Squire (well, everyone has to start somewhere...)? Inquiring minds want to know.

Surely Buzz would agree with me.

For the record I've got 2 strats. My first is a red 91' American Standard with a rosewood neck I've named Ceasar, and my main guitar is a 60's reissue sunburst with a rosewood neck named Milo. (Some folks at work just laughed now hearing that name. The guitar came first). Milo is also altered so that it's got gold fender lace pickups, an active mid-bost, and I put a black pickgaurd on it so I could pretend I'm SRV.

Update: Brent says in his comments that he got a black Squire. Cool. Now I can rest easy knowing that.
