    The next step is that Thunderbird+Lightning will be integrated into Firefox -- and then we'll finally have the Mozilla-based internet suite we've all been waiting for!

    I'd like to see schedule templates for helping me organize my busy life. I suggest the following pre-made ones for typical Firefox users:

    The Leveller
    7:45AM-8:50AM - Worlds of Warcraft
    8:50AM-8:53AM - Ninja fast shower, gotta get to work!
    8:53AM-9:05AM - Drive to work, clock in late
    9:05AM-11:30AM - Read and post to WoW forums from work computer
    11:30AM-12:30PM - Lunch! Just enough time to get home and mob, try to get Enchanted Axe of Althar or something.
    12:30PM-5:30PM - Do enough work to keep that ass boss off your back, sell some WoW gold on eBay.
    5:30PM-6:00PM - Drive home, resolve to buy some groceries and make a real dinner
    6:00PM-6:10PM - Realize that Jack in the Box is faster, just get something there.
    6:10PM-1:00AM - Worlds of Warcraft
    1:00AM-7:45AM - Fitful sleep, plagued by dreams where nobody can read your chat messages in game.

    The GPLion
    9:30AM - Wake up, play some TuxRacer.
    9:32AM - Check for updates to KDE, hit slashdot.
    9:50AM - Finish writing screed defending Stalman while untarring a new nightly build in the background.
    9:55AM - Start a new kernel compiling, then head off to CS class.
    10:00AM - Listen to stupid Microsoft-loving professor tell me about stuff I'll never need. What do I care about 'big-endian' crap, this is COMPUTER SCIENCE, not freakin' Gulliver's Travels.
    11:15AM - Get out of class, eat the macaroni & cheese I brought in tupperware.
    12:00PM-2:45PM - Various classes about stuff I'll never use. Why do I need an english class? I _SPEAK_ english!
    3:00PM - 4:00PM - Spent telling the TA who runs the computer lab why their PSP is inferior to my Samsung phone that runs linux, demo java TuxRacer.
    4:00PM-6:00PM - Kernel has finished compiling at home, spend time trying to get computer working again.
    6:15PM - Post comment to blog about how easy it was to get the new kernel going, and how you don't understand the problems other people are having.
    7:00PM-10:00PM - Xena marathon! Watch on my MythTV setup. With this transparent weather overlay over the screen, I can totally tell what the weather is like outside, even if the audio is out of sync, it's STILL better than a goddamned tivo.
    10:00PM-11:00PM - Porn.

    The Hipster
    7:00AM - Wake up with gentle alarm clock
    7:15AM - Bagel and LOX down at the coffee house.
    8:00AM - Bicycle to work while listening to all my podcasts on my Apple iPod(tm)
    9:00AM - Start work, be sure to check all my RSS feeds.
    12:00PM - Lunch. Did someone say sushi?
    1:00PM - Back to work, adjust my square DKNY glasses and buckle down for at least an hour of email, then back to websites.
    2:00PM - Boba/Bubble tea break!
    5:00PM - Outta work, begin bicycling home.
    6:30PM - Get home.
    7:00PM - Dinner time, zagats sez to try that place on 14th.
    9:00PM - Start watching all my Tivo'd shows, all PBS of course. I don't keep the idiot box for anything but PBS. Oh, and maybe Lost, and the Simpsons, but don't tell.

    And yet, in your busy schedule you managed to find a way to post this much bs to Slashdot. Brilliant! Who's your time manager and can I rent her/him?
