I think I might be on the verge of attaining a more enlightened state in dance. Now it seems that when I screw up my footwork—barring especially egregious errors (e.g. tripping myself)—I’m able to keep leading the follow appropriately (they don’t notice that I’ve really mucked myself up) and then get my feet where they ought to be, to continue on without interruption.

For lack of a better term, I shall call this ability error correction.

Additionally, I shall call the use of computer/electronic terms to describe dance skills unwise. That, however, will not prevent me from continuing to do so.

Though it’s easy to say and/or type, that’s a very big deal when you’re dancing. Historically, my response to getting off-beat has been immediate and total Brain Freeze. And brain freeze is not a condition that allows for a continued lead, let alone a graceful recovery.

If you’ve been under a rock lately, then you might not realize that today is the day that Mozilla Firefox turned 1.0. I’ve personally turned to OmniWeb for my browsing needs, but if I were on a PC I’d be all over Firefox. My PC experience is limited, but it didn’t take long for me to learn to dislike IE.

Of course, I still have a copy of Firefox on my machine. The more browsers the merrier, right? (I only have…oh…six browsers on my computer. One, Opera, is there only because some other program decided to install it; the others survive of my own free will.)

If you’ve really been under a rock (or don’t read the rants at MegaTokyo), you wouldn’t know that a rat “brain” has learned how to fly a plane in a flight simulator. This begs the question: why the hell can’t I?
