The Cardinals are soon to start choosing a new pope, and when they do white smoke will be sent out of the chimney at the Vatican. No doubt someone will set up a web cam, but I was wondering whether we could do with a browser extension, showing us the current smoke status in the status bar.

       It has been reported in the media that the Vatican announced the Pope's death via SMS text messages to the press. So a web cam does not seem all that far fetched.

       SMS: Smoke Messaging System? or Sonic Messaging System (via the bells)?

       /i think he will be very difficult to get lit./ don't they pump you full of flammables before you lie in state? Not to mention hang around in an indoor crypt for years.
