Hey, if I'm not that active these days...

My computer's browsers are acting funny.

Internet Explorer 10 suddenly loses security tokens on PC, so it now makes me log out and log in just to do exactly one action... and then I have to do it over again.

Firefox 11 isn't faring well, either. Although it's usable, it's barely usable. Glitchy interfaces just makes me have a bad day. "PC Supporter 3" replacing the standard "Minimize/Restore/Close" buttons on the window, anyone?

UPDATE...

Aaaaaaaand just as I post the last blog post...

Whatever magic I did on the CSS for the OP of the Starter Pokémon Club broke compatibility for IE 7. The brokenness shows up in the IE 7 testbox that I have here - some bugs you cannot catch with Compat View!

On the other hand, though, if you're running IE 7, it means that you got rid of IE 6, and you should be safe to upgrade to IE 8 or 9, right? (9 for Vista users)

Or if you're tired of IE, you could always switch to Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Safari, anything, really....

I must be one of these guys that always code for older browsers

In a nutshell: Code for everything worthy. Test in everything worthy. Work it out. Internet Explorer and Opera count, too.

Heck, you know how I roll when it comes to designing pages and div blocks around here and there. I take a pragmatic approach to things like designing pages, and you know, "don't break the web for the users", huh? Whatever it takes, I try to make sure that pages and content work well for any browser deemed good enough. Some people might think, "why...

The work PC is rather wonky

I guess the images say it all. Good thing it happened during lunch break, or, well, it'd be horrible. It took the system along with it, and I had to reset the whole PC. Besides, the scanner loves to jam when using the automatic document feeder. Guess this is what happens when the scanner is already end-of-life and the operating system pretty soon after...


HelpCtr.exe spam! There's a whole lotta of them....

I think the Gmail spam filter just had some bit of fail.

Tags fail, mail, spam

Case in point - what kind of spam filter classifies mail from its own service as spam, even with the right addresses?

Then again, you certainly can say that the spam filter won't play favourites, that's that!

By the way, the image in question is inside the spoiler tag, since it's large. I use Windows Live Mail 2011 as my email client, by the way.
