Dont use tabs then =P

I don't like that "Active X Control Blah" thing. Why the hell did they have to put that in the first place?!

I heard there was an option to disable that somewhere.

You don't understand, I can only execute the request I entered in my address bar if I have 3 or more tabs opened.

Oh it's been a "great" day today!

I went to the dr @ 9:15 for my 9:30 appointment and got out of there just before 10. Then I went to fill my prescriptions and got to work @ 10:30 and discovered that the girl that helps me out never came in today (she left @ 12 on Friday), so I was quite pissed off. Even if she did come in, the pile of parts that either had to be shipped or put on the shelf to wait for them to be due before sending would probably still be there when I got here.

So I plowed through all of the parts and about 11:45 or so, UPS calls me! I have a package here that I want to send to Long Island City (NY) this afternoon and I need the tracking number because the tracking number got smudged! They couldn't freaking tell me that last week?! (This was the next day air package that they "lost" last week). So now I'm not frantic and stressed over that anymore. I'm just waiting for the customer to call me up saying that they finally got the package (after we sent replacement parts and material so that they can make the remainder of the parts).

Cool. I hate 800x600 px screen resolutions, meaning your page is too big for them (just so that you know).

Really? I'm using percentages, not fixed widths. It should work :/

Nope! Doesn't work on a 800x600. I hate having to use 800x600 @ work because I get bitched at for changing it - "I can't see it! It's too small!" lol

Errrrmm...

The funny thing is, that pic is going to look fullscreen for you. For me it is tincy.

P.s. Are you on a 17inch monitor? I am and have a 1280x1024 res.

I have 17" monitors (one here and at work) and 21" (at work), so I can tell you more tomorrow. I use 1024px at home. 800 px is much too large but people with old monitors might not have the luxury of changing to a higher resolution.

My dad's cutting me a pretty good deal. I was in the process of buying his old laptop from him (an awesome HP Lance Armstrong "LiveStrong" edition), and I was owing him 400 dollars more. He says, "You won't owe me anything if you pay for your drum and for gas." Now, my new snare drum is gonna cost me 100 dollars, and I make enough tip money to pay for good gas. So, more money for me :)

There ya go! You definitely got a better deal, although the gas will probably cost more in the long run than the laptop was even worth.

P.S. If it doesn't work, it's because i took it down due to high b/w usage.

It's cool but the preloader lags a bit. I dunno if it's your host...If you need some hosting space where you're not worried about bandwidth too much, I'll host it and then send you the link.

That's who I have right now. You don't get all of that bandwidth and space all at once. They build you up each week and you'll eventually get it all. They do start you out pretty well though.

On the cheapest package, how much b/w and space do you get monthly?
Just after you buy it...

I don't remember but I think I get something like 16GB added each week. I'm up to something like 202GB of bandwidth per month (around there), I'll eventually get 2TB, not like I'll ever use that.

I just found the BEST Microsoft skin for windows, works on XP as well as WMC.

If you have ever used the Royale theme, this is a Black/Grey version of that. Very cool, although it was never officially released by Microsoft.

That's a matter of opinion, there are plenty of excellent skins out there.
