Bear McCreary with Katee Sackhoff - "All Along The Watchtower"

Wonderful concert overall but this is great, it features Katee Sackhoff aka Starbuck sitting in the beginning.

From Youtube

Note from Bear McCreary "Kara Thrace herself, Katee Sackhoff, joined me on stage at the grand piano to play Kara Remembers I played the left hand part, and she plucked out the Final Four Theme, just as she did in the climax of Someone to Watch Over Me. Once we had the Final Four Theme going on the piano, the band snuck in, building to Heeding the Call and finally All Along the Watchtower"

Firefox 3.5 is out!

Firefox Logo



New Firefox version 3.5 released technically yesterday since I am posting this really late at night.

After running it now for about the last 4 hours I am extremely impressed so far. My only gripe is my favorite theme didn't work with it yet, but hopefully should be an update for that in next day or so. So temporarily found another theme that I like for now.

There is a very nice video by the Mozilla folks showcasing some of the new features available in Firefox 3.5 which are really great. My biggest impression so far has been the wonderful speed increases. This thing so far is blazing fast. I really am enjoying it.




You can see a small summary of new updates as well as download the new version for firefox by going to:

and a nice link to showing off new html5 features in Firefox 3.5 that supports built in video

So far a huge improvement.
