Shino - "I put a female bug on you"

It's not something I like to admit..

But my beloved Mozilla Firefox isn't the ultimate browser. Niftiness, lots of it, yes. But there are lacks.

If there's any better, I don't know.. I think we all agree that IE is shit. So.. Opera? I guess I'll give it a shot.

This entry brought about by trying to buy something online, and it didn't work in Firefox.. so I tried in IE, and it worked.. so to check if it was some sort of stupid IE-only code, I installed Opera and tried. That worked.

Habits are hard to break, that is why I waited so long to switch from IE to Firefox. I really don't see myself abandoning Firefox, but what if there is a better browser? What if there is, and I spend another year with a lesser product because I was too habit-bound to try something different?

Boredom, digital camera, practicing The Look.

Oh yeah, and my weekend? It was okay, I guess.. sigrid_gorgeous got here really late yesterday - after the last subway, in fact. I told her which still accessible stop was the closest, and walked over to meet her there. Got back here, and she went to bed almost right away, while I stayed up until 3 AM. Then up barely before noon today.

Didn't really do much - watched a few episodes of One Piece, cooked a wonderful dinner, I got Daggerfall to run on Matsuri (but it will need some sort of slowdown thing like moslo to run properly), and Sigrid got a headache and spent a lot of time resting. Then my mom came to pick her up, I sent the books I am lending Sigmund with them (Player's Guide to the Forgotten Realms, Realms of Valor and Villains by Necessity). Forgot to give him a Cadbury's Snowflake like I had planned.. Not like my mom remembered to bring my forgotten stuff, but then again I had forgotten to tell her to bring it. But she did bring me my birthday present from my dad - a 512MB USB memory stick. Much slimmer than my old 128MB one, I won't need an extension cable to reach some ports now. And now I can put stuff like the OpenOffice installer on it (64MB).

Just the last chapter of my book to go.. Might as well save it for tomorrow.
Must send cards tomorrow if there's going to be any chance of them being Chinese New Year's cards. Haven't even written a single one. I suck at keeping deadlines.
I also apologize for not having written much in ways of questions for the interview meme. I still hope to get around to it, but it's not being given a high priority at the moment. If it was just half the number of questions, I'd be halfway through the backlog, but thinking up six non-sucky questions to each is a lot harder than I thought it'd be. Am especially looking forward to asking stuff of shroomish, whom I know next to nothing about. ^_^

It's late, so I'll be going to bed now. Back to work tomorrow.. hopefully it'll be dead and I can spend the day writing cards and reading LJ.
