I'm sure it's the add-ons. Ugh, no tengo tiempo to deal with this! I will try to figure out what is specifically causing it later this week.


I have a big assignment coming up over the next week and I hope that I can measure up! It's difficult being a contractor, though, as I also have two other assignments to finish that week.  Undecided Lord have mercy!

By the way, is it just me or is RealPlayer the worst media program on the planet? Either that or Windows Media Player. AAAGH. I hate that I have to download separate programs for my media files.

Microsoft IE is worse than nuclear weapons.


Google Chrome is nice. Firefox is starting to act really strange (refusing to let me input any words on the address bar and text fields, freezing, etc.), which stinks, because I use 3 different web browsers for different tasks, and I guess this puts Firefox out of the running...

I'm sure you've probably thought of this... but have you installed any add-ons recently?

Maybe something is conflicting with something else... Maybe try disabling your most recent add-on (or even all of your add-ons) and see if the problem goes away. At least then you'd know if that's where the problem was.

The reason I love Firefox so much is the absence of a corporate interest... the high level of personalization (I have an Orthodox Christian themed browser) and the add-ons.

But I have seen instances where the add-ons will conflict w/ each other and create little glitches of varying severity even to the point of freezing.
Good point. I have a ton of add-ons attached to my Firefox browser, and I've noticed the impact this has on the browser's performance, not that I care. I know, though, that my Firefox browser was faster and had fewer problems before I added the add-ons, so I know what the problem is. I've just chosen to accept this degradation of performance as the natural consequence of the additional behavior I like and want.

When you say (exact words):

Quote
"degradation of performance"

(Grin) ... Do you mean it's slowed down?

I've never noticed a slowdown on mine... You must have a LOT of add-ons!
Yeah, I do. The big slowdown is this: my Firefox browser takes much longer to open than it did before I installed the add-ons.

If you're still on Firefox 3.6 on Windows you could try this...

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/startupservice/

Seems it works better in some situations than others... probably just depends on your overall configuration, OS, etc.

Worth a shot!

I haven't found anything yet that my stock (free!) Ubuntu players can't handle.

I still have no complaints at all about Ubuntu 11.04. None.

I have a netbook with Linux, and I love it! I think when I get another laptop (I want to use one for my gov stuff only...ah, if I only had the money), I am thinking of ditching Windows. I have had some issues with Open Office though, so I'm a bit hesitant about some problems I might encounter later on.

Don't get me wrong, I generally like Windows, though. I am just rebelling hard against IE upgrades and .docx formats.

Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) now comes factory stock w/ 'Libre Office' rather than 'Open Office'...

It's much more like Microsoft Office.




I'm using Firefox 4 now.


Yeah ditto.

I have Chromium too if I just need something quick (and just in case FF stops working or something).



OK. Breaktime. I've been on here constantly since my liberation!

No it is indeed the worst media program EVER. Well its pretty close with the Zune software. It looks nice but the Zune software is so bloated and simple tasks take 4, 5 levels deep in the menus.
But I found a plugin for Winamp where I can control my Zune and android phone with it so thats what I've been using lately.



I don't know what any of you other posters think but I think the Chrome OS and Chrome Laptops look promising. My only issue is a huge one though: letting Google house all my files all the time on their server. Just a little scary.

Can't really stand the Zune software either. I hate to say it, but Itunes was much better (and that's saying a LOT)! I did use Copy Trans Suite for my iPod transfers, so maybe I should use that with the Zune. I haven't used Winamp since around 2005, hah. I should check that out.


I totally agree with the fear of storing everything on Google! That's what I have backups of backups for...and I really need another external drive to ease my fears. Sigh.

Thats why I don't like all these backup services like Carbonite. You're taking all your info and giving it to someone else. I prefer to do my own backup thank you! Though it helps that I sell technology products. Its a bit easier when you get everything like external drives at cost haha.

Oh, if I weren't married....yes, I would marry someone for access to discounted external drives. What can I say, I'm a very pragmatic person.  Grin

This assignment is driving me crazy. I only have time for 7-10 minute breaks an hour until late tonight, which only leaves me with a few options. Posting on OC.net is apparently my choice! Wink

While I was trying to kill time today and strolling through the frozen foods aisles, I noticed that our Walmart is now carrying (Barber Foods) Chicken Kiev. This totally made my day. I mean, sure, it still tastes like frozen/reheated food, but even a merely above average chicken kiev is still heavenly  Grin

I'd compare those with the frozen chicken cordon bleu. Either the inside is cold or the outside is mic-ed to the max. Can't figure out why I still eat them though.

My friend and I made the chicken kiev one night in college, several years ago. I put my fork in the chicken to cut it open and butter spurted out, hitting my skirt, the table, and the wall of her apartment. Was the buttery deliciousness worth it, despite the cleanup? ABSOLUTELY!

(Chicken Kiev IN Kiev is the best, though. Ha ha ha!)

This will be his third marriage, actually. The first ended when his beloved wife of over twenty five years died from cancer. The second ended in divorce.

I really can't blame a man for not wanting to spend the end years of his life alone. My Grandmother is 92, and more than anything she is lonely.

Paul McCartney had a wonderful friend, lover, and companion in his first wife. He was used to having someone to rely on. I don't think it wrong or scandalous for him to seek that out. He has known his current fiance for over four years. Hardly an "overnight" romance.

Furthermore, I think it says a lot that after the bitter divorce he had with his second wife, he still was open enough to the possibility of finding love again. I really think it is a beautiful thing.

So hold your tongue; it is easy at your young age to say "I will only marry once."

You don't know the hand of cards life will deal you.

It's not quite fair to assume I am youthful and idealistic and untouched by loneliness, but you're right that I have spoken unkindly and out of line.

Just to be clear; I never assumed you were untouched by loneliness, or that you haven't experienced heartache. All I said was that since you are young, you may have an ideal that you will only get married once, but you don't know where life may take you.

At any rate, no harm, no foul. Smiley
