This is amazing! I am never using internet explorer again. Evar. This is fucking insane to me that I dealt with it for so long and didn't try this sooner. I'm a very complacent person though, and if I don't have to change something then I probably won't, so that might explain it. A few days ago I started having problems with IE though, it would stop and restart at the most random and upsetting of times. Right in the middle of that important stuff that you can't get back. Anyway, it has been doing that for awhile now and tonight I just got fed up. It was restarting every 5 minutes. "My bad, error. Have to restart on you, and we don't know why so you just have to deal." Ridiculous. Well, I decided I wasn't going to deal anymore. Thought about un-installing it and then trying to reinstall, see if that would help fix the problem, and then a light bulb went off in my head.


I had opera on my old pc, but never had a chance to use it due to the fact that it was never hooked up to the internet. And nintendo uses opera for the wii and ds, so why did it take so me so long? But, well, I have it now. And oh boy, oh boy! This is fan-fucking-tastic! Just opening up the opera window and I was in jaw dropping shock at how, well, gorgeous it is. And that was all I had to do, open up the opera window and I said, I am never using internet explorer again. I will put a bullet through my head if you try to make me.

And in other news, leon's birthday was on the 19th. He is now one people year old. My little smartie-pants is growing up so fast. Cryshade has also been excessively happy and friendly around me of late. Tonight he was crawling around all over my chest and purring. I am so not used to this from him. But it's nice to have him sleeping with me since I can't get leon. He's also really friendly with leon too. When he wants to go outside anyway. However, whenever leon gets too annoying for cryshade, he will not hesitate to lay the smack down on leon. So it's kinda funny to watch because you can see the bewilderment in leon's face and watch him jump back when cryshade gets close. He doesn't know if cryshade is going to be nice or chase him down and smack him in the face. He is still recovering from his last nose scratch.

Wow I also cannot believe that you survived using IE for so long! Pretty much everyone I know uses Firefox. But Firefox doesn't seem to be as reliable as it used to be; it crashes randomly and gets really slow when trying to scroll down on certain websites like Facebook. So I might switch to Opera too.

Well, sometimes you have live with what you get, and sometimes you even get used to all it's problems. Since I didn't have my own computer for the longest time, I didn't really choose what internet browser I was able to use so it didn't occur to me to change it.

I was able to covert my boyfriend over to it too. He's loving it as well. Wasn't able to get my old roommate though, he's just too hard headed and his attitude towards change, no matter how good it may be, is even worse than mine is. Which is kinda funny in a way.

Haha, I know someone who's EXACTLY the same way. To each his own, I guess.

I ended up installing Opera on my desktop computer. Tried to install it on my laptop but that failed. Definitely faster than Firefox, and unlike Firefox actually lets me play my Songza playlist (www.songza.com), which is a big plus.

I'm glad it did too. Probably would have broken my computer if it hadn't.

I found the name cryshade in a book, after cryshade's candle. One of the sword and the sorceress ones, can't remember which. I was trying to find a name for him that was different and that was the one I liked the most.

/it was the 16th book in the series.
