Celebrate Good Times

Goodbye germs! Goodbye Grouchy-Grey-Haired-Grinches (a phrase coined by my lovely little ladies- love of alliteration runs in the family)!

Dood! We got a Dell. (Thank you, K- Amy's prince charming).

Now, pass the hors d'oeuvres, turn up the music, get a refill and enjoy yourselves.

P.S. Oh, and Jeff, this means my cart is officially retired. ;p

Rae is back to having her own onramp to the information superhighway.

I hope you get your anti-spy-ware softwares installed, and one of the Mozilla browsers/ e-mail programs as well.

We don't want to do through that mess again.

Thank you, Jeremy.

Tell me more about Mozilla? We are using IE, but I have heard a few, umm, inferior things about it...

Mozilla Firefox ( is probably the best browser on the market right now.
Its secure, is safe, and its free!

Just install it, and it will give you options to import all your bookmarks/favorites to its directory.

Then just use FireFox, and stop using IE. (You can't delete IE, windows still needs it. But that doesn't mean you have to use it.)

Additionally, if you are using Outlook Express, STOP. Get Thunderbird. All your POP3 accounts can be read by Thunderbird just as well (And its got a neat little Spam filter that learns as it goes.) Thunderbird is also available on

Both these products are now in their 1.0 version (after several years of user testing and such) But I've been using both these products since their 0.1 phase.

Go Go Mozilla!

Even before meeting Jeremy I was using Mozilla Firefox for browsing and thunderbird for email.

Come on... all your friends are Mozillites. Join the tribe.

I'll forego the Mac recommendation, since you already got your, ahem, Dell [please, no flaming OS wars], but I will second the recommendation of Firefox. It is an excellent cross-platform browser, likely to give you better layout results when you work up your site in it, and is better protection against IE-oriented malware. It won't save you from the OS's shortcomings, but it is a huge improvement.

You leave a comment like that and then caveat it with a "don't flame me please"?

Talk about stirring the pot.

(But this professional-geek will play nice.)
