Hi everybody! I just sent Kristin a pm, and now I'm off to vote on that scraptathlon thing! And then I have to take a look at Amber's challenge! Woohoo, it's almost Friday!
By the way, Angela, Vista really works almost exactly like XP - it just "looks" different. (There's still a start button in the lower left-hand corner, but it doesn't "say" start - Microsoft is just trying to confuse us.) But I know what it's like to help a parent with a PC on the phone. I've pulled my hair out many times trying to figure out what my mom was describing. She lives in Colorado, so I don't get to visit nearly as often as she has computer crisis'.
And I think tabbed browsing just might be one of Microsoft's greatest inventions!
And Louisa, love the sweet new avatar - even better than a fruity drink!

Actually, Kitty, Firefox started the whole "tabbed browsing" thing so I've been using it for years! I LOVE it!
But I LOVE the new Microsoft Word with the tabs across the top. Took me a while to get used to that... "huh? where's 'file'? how do I save and print?!?!" LOL!
Vikki, I don't think the bottom left-hand corner *says* anything... I think it's just the Microsoft icon. Is that right, Kitty?!
This is great! Kristin is going to get TONS of PMs and feel very loved.
Yes, I do have plans for the weekend! One of my best friends (Melissa) is coming to visit from California. We met on the first day of 7th grade and were best friends from that day on. She'll be here Fri/Sat/Sun. I'm working half-day tomorrow, and we'll just hang out. We're planning to visit my sister and nieces Saturday and perhaps Boston on Sunday. We'll see!
You gals are talking too Technical for me! We have Mozilla Firefox but I didn't like it as much. I tried it for a while and now I can't remember what I did not like. But I still use Internet Explorer and hubby uses the firefox! How was that? Am I talking about the same thing is you girlies???? Or am I talking about something different???
Oh, Amber, you make me laugh. I love laughing at work. Fantastic.
I made a card for the pregnant manager today. It's her last day. I brought some BG Blush paper, fiber, stickers and a piece of cardstock and just whipped one up at my desk! LOL. I heart scrapping.
Yes, Louisa! That's what we're talking about. I love Firefox because it has the tabs at the top (Ctl T gets you a new one), and that way you can have like 20 pages up at once, but it doesn't take up space on the bottom of the screen. You can have four windows (at the bottom) with five tabs each (at the top). Oh, I just love it! (Not that I ever *have* 20 up at once, but still!) I usually need like seven for work... so I NEED tabs!
Angela: I'm sure they give us paid vacation! However... I'm not full time. I'm part time most of the year and full time in the summer so... I don't qualify. But I get paid vacations! Doesn't matter... I'm leaving my job. I'm starting my own scrapbooking business at home.
Hope everyone is having a good morning! I can't wait to leave work! Hooray for leaving early!
Vikki they are both internet browsers. The new IE (what version is it y'all? 7?) has tabbed browsing, but Firefox had it first. So it was esp. helpful when on dial up to start a bunch of pages loading without taking up the extra memory to run separate browser windows. Then I could walk away and come back and have a bunch of pages to look at.
LOL Louisa, you got it!
Happy Friday!! Louisa is today your Friday?
I think I shall try to scrap some tonight. Anyone else?
