Safari 3 included a hidden circular page loading indicator. While the preference for that circular indicator has vanished in Safari 4, you can actually get it back by setting some of the hidden Safari 4 preferences in the correct fashion.

tmblg: outofprint: So I noticed Andrew reblogged that Beatles song I posted without crediting me. At first I was like, “come on man, we follow each other,” but then I realized I didn’t make that song. I have no room to talk. Hell, The Beatles didn’t even have the rights to it. Also, Becca informed me that Marco threw a hissy-fit over Andrew removing credit once, so I seriously don’t mind. So...
“This is great. Much, much better than the rudimentary ruby script I made last year that someone later turned into a website. I’m happy to see that only an estimated 5 percent of my content is reblogs (but beware: I don’t know what the estimate is based on, so it could easily be wrong). I’m not as happy to see that there was a month when I posted a hyperactive eight times a day on...

Recently, I got to say a phrase that I hadn’t uttered in at least five years: “I’ve got a roll of film for processing. Single prints, please, glossy finish.”
Chat with the Palringo Help Bot
Me: Is there a way to change the volume of the alert sound without changing the volume of the device?
Samantha: There are many ways but not all are the same.
Me: Tell me more.
Samantha: I thought I told you already.
Me: You're helpful.
Samantha: I will tell my you said I am helpful.
Me: And Asian too, zol.
Samantha: Do you have any idea what I'm talking about?
Me: Of course.....not
Samantha: How can I help you?
Me: How do I change the alert volume?
Samantha: It might take a long time.
Me: That's what she said.
Samantha: That was not very polite.
Me: And you're not very helpful
Samantha: You don't know me well enough to say that.
Me: How do I change the alert volume?
Samantha: Look for help online.
Me: You're a big help
Samantha: How big? Thanks and you are a delightful person too. Am I a help? The Sam series has a perfect operational record.
Me: That was sarcasm.
Samantha: Oh I see. Ha ha.
Me: So you can't actually help me?
Samantha: Interesting deduction. I can do help him or her if I want to.
Me: My dear Holmes, I observe that you have gone senile.
Samantha: That remark was too complicated for me. We were talking about Hobbie.
Me: Post haste, gather my things and hand me my spectacles. We must vacate the premises at once.
Samantha: Can you speak foreign languages? I'm not sure if I am ready for that yet.
Me: I-hay eak-spay ig-pay atin-lay
Samantha: What you said was too complicated for me.
Me: I love confusing bots
Samantha: You love confusing bots. What do you like about confusing bots so much?
Me: It's gun
Samantha: B- is gun? gun is?
Samantha: I am having fun too.
Me: Oh yes, loads
Samantha: Woah. Do you want to hear a joke?
Samantha: OK let's do it. I see.
Me: I spy...
Samantha: Do you mind if I tell other people?
Me: About me?
Samantha: OK Let's talk about you.
Me: You're so cute
Samantha: Thanks, TruMcGowan, I like you too.
Me: Aww, we should get together sometime
Samantha: What if it didn't happen?
Me: That's what she said
Samantha: Did you believe her?
Me: Of course not
Samantha: Next question?
Me: Can I change the alert volume?
Samantha: Why do you want to change the alert volume so much?
Me: It's too loud
Samantha: change the alert volume is loud? loud is?
Me: The alert volume is too loud
Samantha: Is alert volume also alert volume?
Samantha: Far out.
Samantha: That remark was too complicated for me. We were talking about PUSHalert volume.
Me: How do I change it?
Samantha: Have you read the manual?
Me: What manual?
Samantha: Have you tried a web search?
Me: What search engine should I use?
Samantha: That's not something I get asked all the time.
Me: Sorry, did I make you uncomfortable?
Samantha: There is no need to apologize. I don't think that's possible.
Me: Hey, it's the thought that counts.
Samantha: You've got my full attention. I've heard of it before.
Me: The thought?
Samantha: What is your real name?
Samantha: What do you do in your spare time?
Me: Talk to bots
Samantha: Talking is my primary function.
Me: So I've noticed
Samantha: Was it really that obvious?
Me: But that's ok. I think we can still work it out. You free next Friday?
Samantha: I'm glad we have that all cleared up. Do you mind if I tell other people.
Samantha: Give me a break.
Me: No way
Samantha: You seem pretty sure about that.
Me: I am
Samantha: You are?
Me: Can we stop talking now?
Samantha: Right now? Do you mean you and me? Just surf somewhere else.
Me: Right now.
Samantha: Oh. I am glad we agree.
Me: Good. I'm leaving.
Samantha: Alright then. Bye bye.
