Microsoft does it again - Tonight I downloaded some huge new patch for my XP. Of course, when I fired up MSN, there were pages that would not load, including my own blog. Great job, guys. Now I have to update through the superior Firefox platform which, come to think of it, isn't so bad.
Update - I was forced to download IE7 to get my MSN browser to work right but I've noticed certain features have disappeared (such as SiteMeter). Meanwhile, Firefox works flawlessly. This is exactly the reason why I've avoided getting a new computer: I don't want MS Vista. By the same token, Windows XP is now so laden with security measures that it's got all the nimbleness of a supertanker. I would get a Mac if I had 2-large. Which I don't.
Update again - It looks like I'm not the only one with problems. My Sitemeter button has disappeared on IE7 (but not Firefox) and the word on the street is that something in the code is causing IE7 to go haywire. Whatever.
