Shannon came by for a while yesterday and joined me in being frustrated by the browser problems I'm having.... so much so, that she suggested we play Scrabble. It was a close game most of the way and then.... then..... the little whippershapper went and beat me! It's the first time she's ever played a game where all the tiles got used up and she was just thrilled to beat and old fart like me. "You got beaten by a 12-year-old!" she rubbed in with glee. The word that did me in was three letters (see middle right of board): JAY for which she got 39 points. Anyway, she took these photos and I promised to announce her victory to the world, so. Shannon D. trounced me at Scrabble 258 points to 220 points. Brava, Shannon! Well done! Shannon took the photos too.
I'm still very frustrated by whatever is going on with my browsers. The computer isn't unusable, it's just annoying. Mozilla usually shows up once but then creates shadow browsers if I click it again which is upsetting and slows the computer down. These shadow browsers no longer go away when I run a clean-up program so I have to restart the computer or it runs really slowly. This means I'm using Internet Explorer. I don't like Internet Explorer. It seems very slow to me and it freezes all the time and it just generally makes me cranky. I did figure out one thing yesterday. I got rid of the stupid AOL "My Page" which I had never wanted in the first place and that has helped a bit. But it still keeps refusing to load things and it's so SLOW! Anyway.... I will try to visit people but I'm not a really good visitor even when things are working well, so...
I have photos for Ruby Tuesday but I may have to wait another week because all the rebooting makes me way crankier than anybody ought to be.
Have a great day!
