Toronto, Firefox, VD and Unix

VD? Yeah -- that's Valentine's Day -- as in, look what Dave got me (clickable photo on the right): A heart-shaped box of chocolates in a leather jacket motif!

Where's he find this stuff? He's so adoreable!

Let's chat geek-speak before getting into the Toronto stuff...

The new FireFox has some serious teeth!! Look out Microsoft!!

On the heels of Microsoft releasing its first Internet Explorer 8 Beta 10, Mozilla has released very late beta code of its next major browser release, Firefox 3.0.l Currently in its fourth beta cycle (one more is expected), our testing showed that there is certainly a lot to be excited about in Firefox 3.0. An improved user interface, valuable security additions, much faster JavaScript, and, of course, even more support for Web development standards are merely the start of what's in store. So release the hounds, it's time to hunt down what makes this upcoming Firefox release a prize. Take a sneak peek at Firefox 3 beta!

Toronto!

I want to Toronto for Spearhead's 38th anniversary this past weekend. Although slightly more snow than Provincetown, the event was simply amazing -- Spearhead has become the big leather and bear club in Toronto! I didn't see any of the S.O.B.s (Southern Ontario Bears), Gen X Bears, nor "Bear Buddies Toronto" folk out and about -- however, there were a lot of hot and horny men at all of the events (as well as at the bars on Church Street!) I find it amazing that the court case over backrooms which was won in Montreal had such a profound effect in Toronto! See the court case in full here, and some angry 'I'm more moral that you' fall-out here. All the back rooms are re-opened and very, very busy! I was happy to see an emphasis on safe sex!

On Saturday there was a new member cocktail party before dinner, then a fantastic dinner and the award presentation at the courtyard Marriott -- then the retro dance! Afterwards, many of us went to the Black Eagle for last call and some mutual fun/groping. The Black Eagle has brought back an old tradition from the Toolbox, Naked Night! (and you thought that the Boston Bears' Underbear party was risqué?) -- interested in events at the Black Eagle, check them out at http://www.blackeagletoronto.com/ and dream of anything like this ever opening in Boston. :-( Even New York City pales in comparison nowadays.

On Sunday, we went to "Leather Brunch", a benefit for ACT (the AIDS Committee of Toronto) at Churchmouse & Firkin -- the place was packed! There were raffles, live entertainment and lots of new meat! The event was hosted by the men of "MRLT" ( http://www.mrlt.com/ - Mister Leather Toronto) Check out other upcoming MRLT events at http://www.mrlt.com/mlt_events/index.htm and check out other Spearhead events at http://www.spearheadtoronto.com/English/Mainpages/events.htm

This weekend it's off to New York!


Oh, yeah -- Happy (early) Birthday cowfusior!!!
