So the computer started acting up a couple weeks ago, I'm sure Chicagolady could tell me exactly when. It started throwing an error code on certain people's blogs (some that I participate on regularly!). I was an unhappy camper to say the absolute least. In order to read some of them, I had to resort to using Firefox. After a few days on FF, I tried those blogs again via my usual IE7. Imagine my surprise when, they not only worked, but the Google reader link started working properly again! YAY! So I chalked it all up to Blogger being a piece du merde at times and taking their sweet-assed time fixing problems. Things were good for almost a week now. Last night, the computer decided upgrades were needed and what did it do? Upload IE8 on me. *ugh* Ok, I can deal...right? Well the above video shows ya what I got today. I only checked the two sites so far and I think I'm going to walk away from the computer (actually, Im gonna hobble because the cold's got my knees achin this morning) for a while. I'm really kinda pissed off today so I may not make it in to the blogs at all. A real shame as I have loads of pictures I wanna share, a day and a half of blogs to read and emails to deal with. Between a computer that seems to be bound and determined to make me use FF, and knees that don't want to stop achin... *checks calendar* oh damn...*sigh* ya, and THAT too. It's not likely to be a good day around here. Someone bring me a couple heating pads, a cuppa catnip tea and a cinnamon muffin please?
