Extending My Browsing Self 

After months of using Firefox, I've downloaded Opera version 9. Yay. I feel like I've come home, everything's so easy and zoomed up to a comfortable 110%. I love it. The last versions crashed on my computer often enough that I opted for Firefox, which I'd installed to check my Web pages, and for my Dad to use instead of IE. Mum and Dad have bought a new computer and it'll come with Firefox already installed, so I'm glad he's familiar with it. Rijk van Geijtenbeek has drawn up a table showing the Top 150 Popular Firefox Extensions and Opera. Until I read this, I didn't know there was an extension for mouse gesture functions in Firefox, so it's handy whichever way you look at it.

Hi Dee,

I'm not sure what this tag thing is. You tagged me ages ago but I wasn't sure what it meant!
Thanks for wishing us well on our trip. We head off for 3 days next Wednesday. Should be good!
I walked into town today with the kids and it rained on the way and the wind was blowing straight up from Antarctica I'm sure of it. Brrr is an understatment.
Will call soon and have a chat. I called the other night but you were out. How dare you - lol
Take Care luv meg
 
Heya Megs,

When you're tagged, you're being asked to copy and paste the questionnaire/survey-like post on someone's blog into your own blog. You erase their answers and fill in your own. The copied posts are known as memes, although 'meme' has a broader definition - a cultural unit transmitted from one person to another.

For example, if you showed me how to wear my hair like we saw a character wearing her hair on Neighbours, that'd be a meme too. We'd have to make allowances for my curls, and then we'd have changed the meme to suit ourselves. And then maybe some other strange bod with curly hair sees my curl-adapted, Neighbours-inspired do and copies it... and the meme goes on. Scary. :-)

Sorry I wasn't around. I'd like to say I was out but there's a good chance I was on the net. Have a good one and stay warm! :-)
