As a wee break from the awful temperatures we suffer through up here in the north, we get blessed with a January thaw. Right now it is 5 C (42 F) tomorrow it is supposed to be 11C (51F). The city is out and about removing as much snow as they possibly can, but the roads will still be slushy and will freeze overnight to horrible ruts. The wind shield washers on cars will get lots of use in the next few days and it gives us an opportunity to air out the domiciles. It gives us promise of spring to come. It breaks up the cabin fever a bit. Of course, then comes February, but we don't want to go there yet.
In other news, is anyone else becoming frustrated with Bloggers inability to keep the side bar links up to date? I just got the change for one of my links, but the post was two days ago! That is getting annoying.
My new cpu is running Vista - of course! I have managed to get rid of the annoying message asking me if I want to do what I just told it to do - how stupid is that message anyway? "Are you sure you want to access the internet, it is a scary place and you might get infanaminamity!" Well, that might be a stretch, but, if I didn't want to do these things, I wouldn't have clicked the damned icon - if I clicked in error, I am smart enough to close the window too! Even people that don't have much in the way of computer knowledge will close a window if it isn't where they wanted to go.
Of course, it has changed the way Firefox works...I have to investigate and see if I can get it working the way I want it to. Right now, it is not saving any settings so I have to log in everytime I relaunch. Oh well, I will get it sorted out. In the meantime, I will just swear and curse at it ;)
I guess that's it, I am going to go and enjoy our bit of warmth. Have a great weekend all!
