"Tumbarumba: a frolic of intrusions" launched

As noted by my collaborator Ethan and by Tim... Tumbarumba has shipped!

So: how do you see this panoply of original fiction that I have been going on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on about?

You open Firefox. You go to Under "download", you click on "download the extension", and install the add-on.

And then you go on about your web-browsing business, but a little more... carefully than usual.

Ideally, you forget all about Tumbarumba. And then at some point you're reading along and you say "what the heck?!!?"

And fiction begins to interleave itself into your day.

(There are more specifics under "Directions & Help", if you want them.)

Tumbarumba is Firefox-only at the moment, though we plan an IE version in January. If you are a Safari or Chrome or Opera person (I'm kind of loving Chrome, myself)... maybe you can make an exception?

(In addition to finding it at, if you want to be 'specially helpful you can get a free account on Mozilla's Add-On extensions site, and download and review it there. With enough positive reviews, it gets promoted to being some kind of standard Firefox add-on.)
