Granite Worktops

Homeowners are using granite worktops more frequently in their new
homes and remodeled kitchens. Granite worktops increase the value
beauty and durability of their homes. Granite is durable, second only
to diamonds for durability.

Granite comes from a variety of countries. Since it is formed in
nature it comes in many colors and patterns. Due to differences in
conditions no two slabs of granite are identical. This is something to
keep in mind if you need large surfaces topped. Though they cannot be
matched identically they can be matched in similar colors or patterns.
Granite worktops are made from a single slab. The slabs can be cut
into various shapes and thicknesses by diamond tipped saws. They can
have many different surface finishes.

Since Granite is formed at high temperatures it is very heat
resistant. Placement of hot items like pots and pan or utensils will
not bother the countertop. Surfaces can vary. Many are good for
decorative reasons but polished surfaces are considered the best for
countertops. Because the polished finishes are the most stain
resistant and can be cleaned easily with soap and water or other
general cleansers. These worktops can easily handle hot pots and pans
or utensils without marring the surface.

However, they are not scratch resistant. The polishing process is done
with diamond tipped tools. Unfortunately, the polished surface less
durable than the granite content. There are many commercial cleansers
and polishes available to care for and maintain your worktops.

Care of granite worktops is fairly simple. It requires using cutting
boards for any cutting or chopping because sharp instruments are known
to scratch the polished surface. You should also not move or drag
pots, pans and small kitchen appliances across the worktop as these
can also scratch the surface.

Other things that can mar the surface of granite worktops are
prolonged contact with substances such as acidic liquids like lemon
juice and carbonated drinks. They should be cleaned up as quickly as
possible with a mild cleanser to prevent surface damage. Soap and
water rings can easily be removed with recommended commercial products
that are readily available.

Most minor scratches or dulling of the polished surface can be taken
care of by the owner using the products recommended by the installer.
The type can vary depending upon the type of granite and polished
surface given to it by the manufacturer. Major scratches or problems
may require professional treatment by the manufacturer or installer.

In summary, granite worktops and countertops have become quite popular
with homeowners and in some commercial applications. Granite worktops
provide added value as well beauty and durability.

Leaving hg.mozilla bug.mozilla to github for the leaving complicated infrastructure of mozilla.

Mozilla fiddles while Mozilla burns
Today I contacted three people that I had in the past convinced to switch from IE or Chrome to FF. I persuaded them to uninstall FF because of your culture of politically correct bigotry. After reading this list today, I think I'll keep doing that as a hobby. Why? Because after the politically correct witch hunt that resulted in Eich being out and radical gays being appeased, all I see here are what come across as smug attempts to deflect blame and just weather the storm. FF is the new IE, the boorish clod that wants to just dissemble or stomp over any opposition in the style of Gates. ...

Firebird or Mozilla... Thunderbird or Mozilla...
I just got finished reading the roadmap to try and figure out if I would be better off stacking with FB and TB, or if I should install the Mozilla Suite. I cannot make heads or tails out of the roadmap. I cannot figure out what would be the best choice. Would someone here kindly outline the key decision issues for the two different paths?
