Beautify Firefox widgets in Ubuntu

firefoxwidget_20070527.jpg
The thing about Firefox under Linux is that its form widgets look a little nasty. Thankfully, Osmo Salomaa created some nice replacement widgets that really clean up the interface, and fatsheep over at ubuntu forums put together a quick script for installing/uninstalling the patch. It’s a big improvement, unless you’re into the whole super-aliased, shadow-casting button thing.

  1. There are two important factors: 1) Expectations and 2) Risk. To say that it is “cheaper to borrow money and invest it elsewhere rather than to pay off debts” implies that one’s expectations about the return of “elsewhere” (like the stock market) is higher than the cost of borrowing.

    If a borrower expects the stock market to return 15% and can borrow for 6%, then that person will probably do so. However, if the stock market ends up dropping 10% instead, the person has not only lost the 10% drop, but the cost of borrowing (6% more). This is called risk.

    Mortgage companies will lend money as they want the security of a low-risk investment (default being the primary risk) with a slightly higher return than risk-free investment options.

  2. another thing to remember, so long as the banks name is on deed, they actually own the house. they’re just letting you live there while you pay them. if anything goes wrong, they get the house and you’re S-O-L!

    i don’t know, maybe i’m just a low risk kind of guy, but i would rather own my own house down to the last brick and nail then put myself and my family at risk of being homeless while i try to invest. i would think if you’re going to play money games, play them with secondary residences.
