Well, I'm having to write this post from the Opera browser. I could have used Chrome or Firefox or just about any other browser. Since I let the "upgrade" of IE8 go in, I am unable to access ANYTHING using IE. The problem first reared it's head when IMDB said I had to load flash 8 or later. I knew I had flash 10 on already so I knew something was up. When I tried to reload flash it said it was already installed and sure enough I could find it and it said enabled. After some poking around I found that if IE8 has trouble with ANY ONE of the add-in it put IE in a "special" no add-ins enabled mode. You have to figure out what it is having issues with and disable them, restart IE and hope you don't run into any more. At the moment, I am locked into a mode where IE won't even come up enough for me to manage the add-ons. I'm quite sure I won't be able to uninstall or go back to IE7 and many other posts I've read seem to back that up. Google around before you load IE8 and see if the problems have answers before you leap. I wish I'd have.

I'm enjoying the heck out of FaceBook. I joined to keep tabs on my daughter and soon old friends started finding me. It's a great place to hit for just a little while and catch up. It could be a huge time sink if you let it though. I just have to get in and get out. I've found that using the web browser "flock" is helpful when using the social networking sites.
I've been toying with the Microsoft Office Live site as well but the real benefit is for collaberating with others and I'm having a hard time getting the "others" to move past email. I forget that everyone isn't a tech loving geek like myself. I have plenty of tech loving geek friends I just don't have a need to collaborate spreadsheets and powerpoints with them. We just get silly on FaceBook.
