Journal Journal: Free Software and Code Reuse

By 2006 I suspected free software developers could make better use of code reuse than proprietary software developers, and with that achieve a much better productivity with time. By then I tought that time had already come, what is clearly wrong, but I've being collecting data since then, and summarized it in an article.

If anybody ever gets here (who reads those journals anyway?), you are invited to read the article.

Journal Journal: Tracking Firefox's memory usage 3

I want to know if the memory bug of Firefox is caused by an extension, and, if so, which one. So, if you have a huge memory usage (100+MB) even after closing all the tabs but one, please leave a comment here telling your usage and which extensions you have.

Also, if you know how to easily copy the extensions list for pasting here, tell me.
