So my 5 days are up and my special girl has returned from up north (Well up north and to the left a bit) and now I'm all set to spend a few more magical days with her
People tracking my progress with FireFox can now start grinning in a "I told you so" way, I jumped straight into the depths of FireFox and hit "Extensions" immediately, I grabbed a few *official* ones "Auto Copy, ForeCastFox, Dictionary Search, FoxyTunes, infoRSS" and after a user suggestion from "IndyUK" SpellBound made its way into my extensions list (and that I can easily say is possibly one of the best plugins known to FireFox)
So I sit here, getting popups about the weather, change a few tracks in Winamp, highlight to copy any text on a page and spell check any entries I post on BlogX (sometimes while surfing getting mildly interrupted by a "FireFox has blocked a pop-up for you") although personally I never had problems with IE security, plugins are rather nice, I have a feeling that they will turn into the next ActiveXs' but to get them to install you have to go through configuration options to allow the site to install components (or save them to your computer and drag and drop them) so I feel there might need to be a bit of user education there but they'll learn fast.
I've also updated BlogX a bit, we're on a new version (Blog readers, "CheckVersion" checkers and the mail contacters alike all should know) the new version releases pretty much all the fancy updates to BlogX that were on the About.asp page as "(Unreleased beta)" I still need to sort a few things out (Namely I want the "Advanced" button to disappear after clicking it or the hiding text having failed, FireFox support has had to be increased as it's trapping the "Document.all" and telling me I should use something else, but the "something else" wouldn't work in the context I need it to)
Other than that look set for a great week, meeting Hannah at 1ish and hope to have a lovely day catching up on the last 5 Hannah-less days.
Oh and I'm going to town tomorrow to the cinema in a big group (After having hacked Jens' computer with what she knows as "The penguin", looks like a Windows Update managed to corrupt her user account and now she's being asked for an administrative password that she does not know, looks like Knoppix STD needs to go SAM writing!
I think I may actually start to enjoy Christmas now
