2 of 'em not bad.
But it seems a little bit trivial tonight - more on that tomorrow.

I was forced to switch to Firefox last night.
I feel dirty
Me Being Bored [9:04 AM]:
Welcome, brother. You are safe here.
Other Geek [9:09 AM]:
Here's the deal. XP told me there were updates (including the optional update to IE8). Foolishly, I went for it. I then went to miniclip to play pool and it failed. I was angered. I went back to the checkpoint it wrote before installing everything and it corrupted registry. I went back to the previous checkpoint and all was cool, but the banners were gone from my IE 7 browser. I could not get them back. I tried to download the install from MS. I could not download anything. I went to another PC, downloaded firefox. Installed it on my problem PC and it worked. so I uninstalled IE7. re-installed it and it works. However, I left Firefox as my browser of choice. The funny thing is that the miniclip game still does not work - on any PC i have. It had nothing to do with the browser.
I lost my toolbars in IE7

it's the same. It looks the same as IE7/8. It runs the same, it inherited my tab preferences (IE7 has tabs), my favorites, my homepage, my cookies, everything. I would bet that Kid and Wife don't even notice.

I use Safari on my iPod
Other Geek [9:13 AM]:
It's no Opera. There are hacks to make it work on Apple TV.
Me Being Bored [9:14 AM]:
Hacking Apple hardware is a mug's game, I think.
Other Geek [9:16 AM]:
It's more mainstream than that, I think. http://www.atvflash.com/
imagine - Google earth on Apple TV.
Me Being Bored [9:16 AM]:
that would be pretty cool
Other Geek [9:18 AM]:
In fact, on Apple TV, Google Earth is LIVE. The images are delivered in REAL TIME. Cars driving down the road. bombs going off in Foreign Countries. You know, all laughing aside - that's not beyond the realm of possibilities.
Me Being Bored [9:18 AM]:
whoa! I saw that on CSI
Other Geek [9:19 AM]:
No, that was using a black light to find fingerprints.
Or maybe you're thinking of how they flick at a piece of dangling flesh for dramatic effect.
Me Being Bored [9:26 AM]:
No, no - it was fingerprints. Matlock was sure the culprit's fingerprints were in a backyard but McGruber couldn’t figure out how to melt the lock to get into that backyard so Quirky Genius Geek Goth Girl commandeered a Google Earth satellite and they zoomed into the backyard and found the fingerprints with 2 MINUTES LEFT in the episode. And then they all took their sunglasses off and wore them in cool affected poses while the credits rolled - inexplicably over a racing speedboat that had nothing to do with the story.

I love it when a plan comes together !
I pitty da fool
