Reload a page in Firefox

A weird problem happened to Firefox of my desktop today. Some Wikipedia pages could NOT be correctly loaded because of CSS problem. 'Reload the current page' just did not work, similar as F5. Restarting Firefox did not help either. Then I figured out that I need to reload and override the cache. That is Ctrl+F5. It is better to learn all the shortcuts and find more tricks.

Created a calendar for University of Saskatchewan academic schedule

I always need to visit this page to get the university schedule like the close day and last day to do something. And I searched on Google Calendar, and did not find a similar calendar. So I decide to create one that may be useful for everyone. I include only the highlighted events, close date, and important day for graduate students there. I will try to remember to update the calendar when the schedule for 2007-2008 is available. The calendar's title is University of Saskatchewan Academic Schedule. The iCal link of the calendar is
Or you can subscribe the calendar by click

Got a booklet of UofS centennial stamps
