I fill out a lot of complicated forms and edit a lot of Wiki pages.  As much as I love Firefox, there are times that it locks up or crashes, which makes me lose all that work.  I just discovered Lazarus, which is a Firefox plugin that stores all your form data as you type.  Now, even if I accidentally close a window/tab, I can only lose a few seconds of work!

Lazarus stores the data in an SQLite file-based database in your profile directory, so it persists even reboots.  It even has the option to store the data encrypted and password-protected, for you privacy nuts out there (/me raises hand).  It’s completely unobtrusive, and does exactly what it says it does.  Give it a try!

According to io9, The Middleman complete series will be released on DVD 07/28/09.  This was a really fun show cut down in its prime.  If you haven’t heard of this show before, check out this fan-generated Wiki and this LiveJournal blog.   It had great dialog, culture references, characters, and plot complications, and was so over the top it regularly banged its head on the ceiling.  Unfortunately, it’s not in Netflix’s database yet, but when it is, I’ll link to it here.
