A witch on how to make your computer work better with mercury magic. A classic from 1999.

(The long-awaited Win64 version is not linked yet, it's at http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/pre-releases/win/x64/ )

A-Mazing Mead: Alcotec 48: the rabid crack fiend of fermentation. Making mead with vodka starter yeast. http://wp.me/p2f1yO-2F
So we have this 25-litre tun, and in fact we bought a second one. Since last post, we have filtered and drunk the huge vat of Yule Mead in that post, and brewed and drunk a vat of rose mead as well...

So if you use gmail.com in Firefox for Android, it forces you to a shitty, shitty interface that barely works (e.g. search is actually broken).

If you try it in Chrome, it's lovely and fully functional! WHAT ARE THE ODDS HUH

Does anyone know how to force it to serve Firefox the non-shit interface? A user agent addon that works on FF Android? What are they sniffing it with?

(They seem to have worked quite hard to deliberately break it. https://mail.google.com/mail/mu/ works in Chrome Android ... it gives Forbidden 403 in FF Android.)
