I just started using Any.do yesterday on my phone, but would like a Firefox addon. Are there any plans for this in the near future?

Edit: Either a Firefox addon or a Thunderbird addon.

I'm giving Any.do a shot, but I'm missing Todoist's Firefox support. Love to see Any.do pick up the slack.

THIS! Robotics are great
 
The bionic man fitted with a high-tech robotic hand yesterday showed off his latest upgrade which is so advanced he can now tie his shoelaces again.
Nigel Ackland from Royston, Cambridgeshire, has had his Terminator-like mechanical limb since last November, but it has now been upgraded to make it more sensitive.
And after a recent accident involving a runaway dog which left the 53-year-old missing several robot fingers, designers have also reinforced the limb with stainless steel and titanium.
It means the whole hand is stronger and the upgrade also included insulating pads stop it picking up heat or static electricity.
'Since I was first given the hand they have developed it several times whenever someone who is trialling it notices a design flaw,' Mr Ackland said.
'I was walking the dog and he took off chasing something ripping the lead out of my hand - but unfortunately the fingers came off too.
'So they added stainless steel into the links to make sure they were stronger and could with stand that kind of force again.
'Its crazy I can now tie my shoe laces for the first time in years and play with playing cards. I'm developing my use of the hand more and more daily.
'It really is a whole new quality of life.'

To the woman who yelled at me for being a hazard to the road. I want to thank you. I did not know a cyclist was a road hazard while a distracted driver was not. I now know that I am suppose to ride on the side of the road facing on coming traffic.

Passing this around. Any little thing could help.
 
My sister's cancer treatments have taken most of the mobility and sensation from her left arm. I knew this was going to happen, and I have been racking my brain for the past 3 months, debating wether or not I should (or could) suppliment her mobility and sensation in that arm with a few robotic techniques.

this is an official call for help.

After the traveling expenses required to drive her from Austin to Houston for proton therapy twice a week, and the co-pay on the $12,000 chemo therapy medication I'm not even close to being able to afford the hardware. I have all the tools, the space and the time. I desperately require, and respectfully request, some of you consider donating some hardware. I dont really have anywhere else to turn for this, and any help, even if its just advice, is greatly appreciated.

the design I have in mind would use linear actuators and servo motors..  Possibly stepper motors if I need more accuracy in wrist rotation. Obviously these would be the most expensive parts. I own an arduino, and a raspberry pi, but they are both being used in another project.

she was diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma multiforme over nine years ago, and was initially expected to live at most a 4 months from diagnosis. the fact that she is still alive and able to walk is a miracle in itself. I just want to make things a little easier for her while I can.

My email is Richardfreeman87@gmail.com

Please if anybody can help it would be greatly appreciated. I'm not asking for money. I'm asking for hardware and for other maker's knowledge and experience.

This is a prime example of what you don't do at a boat launch.
