The latest version of netscape.... I still sort of hate it.
And I hate their mail program even *more* than I hate outlook express (if that's possible) and it still didn't fix my problem.
The browser I don't mind too much. Which is odd, considering I thought I'd hate that the most. Except, I'm already missing my google search bar, and I can't figure out where I set the homepage so I can set it to BLANK. I hate network content crap popping up everytime I want t blank browser.

I actually *do* feel better today. So the extra day of rest really did me some good. I slept pretty well too, I think, given the ease with which I woke up. It's better for me to eat something before work, but I just don't feel like it this morning. I have my coffee.

"Like an eyeball. Like a square cut. Like a funny car. Like a monster truck."

I'm all over the place so far today. all first hour of it.
I should be working pretty solitarily today. Good stuff.

I'm babbling needlessly and pointlessly.
Sometimes the writing helps me wake up. Today it's just pointing out that I'm being boring and I'm already awake.

awwwwwwwwww.
uhm. Thanks.

Heh. I'm not used to getting random complements. Well, not on LJ and not from chicks. Especially not on LJ from chicks who happen to have good taste in wine and music. ::grin::

I never said you should use Netscape as a browser - I was simply trying its mail features out until I found a standalone client I liked enough to permanently switch to. Then again it was already installed on my system, and I didn't have to suffer through a narrowband download of the client, so there wasn't any residual ick from that experience on my part. I'd recommend Opera or Mozilla over IE/Gecko personally. At any rate, to set your start page just go to Edit > Preferences and it's the first thing under "Navigator" in the upper left corner:




As for Google, the search bar only works with IE, but you can add Google browser buttons - here's how.

Not sure what's particularly vile about the mail client, especially in comparison to Outlook Express, but it works, and they don't bury certain prefs like "leave mail on server", so it's doing the trick while I review other programs.

In answer to your "why are you awake at 4.00a" query, thanks to not sleeping the night before, I crashed out last night as soon as I got home from work. Well, actually, I crashed out as soon as work stopped calling me at home, but that only added a couple of hours to my waking time. So I woke up this morning at 3.00a and decided to get up, take my time getting ready for once, and go in early. Foolish on some levels, since going in early in no way guarantees leaving early, but I kinda like driving to work when it's dark, and there's less traffic. Plus it fucks with everybody to see me there before 10.30 or so. :)

sweetheart, I think this is the most thorough reply I've seen to a post, EVER.

And no, you didn't say I should use netscape as a browser. But after waiting HOURS for it all to download I figured I might as well give it a shot now that it was here. It's all... bubbly.
It's uhm... *cute*...

The mail client has the same cuteness. It just sort of bugs me. Besides, I may just not have it set up correctly, but I think it's got the same sending mail issue that I was having with outlook. Which tells me that it's just something I'm doing.

Google needs to come out with a search bar that works with other browsers, dammit. I use that thing *endlessly*.

Hehe... I TOLD YOU not to go to bed right when you got home. BUT, fucking with people is a good good thing, man.
