what's fascinating about this - and it backs up the spirit of dc too - is that people are responding generously to her generosity.  Look at these stats from the site - nearly as many are paying higher than the set price as are accepting Jane's gifts, and the average price paid per track is higher than the fixed price, which must mean that those who are paying more than the fixed price are paying significantly more.

Pricing Statistics as of Apr 15 12:00 PM pst
%   Accepting gift from Jane   17%
%   Paid by determining price   37%
%   Paying Later   46%

Avg Price Per Track $1.14
%   Paid Below Suggested   8%
%   Paid At Suggested   79%
%   Paid Above Suggested   14%

It's interesting, also, that as you go through selecting tracks, it tells you how many people chose the same option as you for that track, and what has been the average price paid.

I would immediately suspect ZoneAlarm Pro - it has so many options that are there to help, that it can render a machine completely inoperable!  Try turning ZA off temporarily, and see if you can get a connection then.

Oh, I see from testing with my copy of PortableFirefox that about:kitchensink doesn't work without one of the extensions I use on my full version of Firefox - I think it must be MR Tech Local Install (which is brilliant, and which is here:

Yup, I've tested that now, and it does need MR Tech Local Install...

Not extensions at all, but do others know of these two easter-eggs?

In the address panel, try typing about:mozilla - I heard about this one a few weeks back, but just this morning discovered abother: type about:kitchensink - go ahead, try it...

Find And Run Robot / Change font?

Hi Mouser,

Is it possible to change the display font in F&RR?  A few months back, I know I wanted it as unobtrusive as possible - but now I want it much more obtrusive!  Working with the Quick Search box in Google Desktop has convinced me that making this kind of thing as plainly visible as possible is helpful for me.  And would it be possible to make an alpha-blended skin like GDS Quick Search box?
