sometimes, i really dislike change.

Hi again...

Your text on your Mac IE should now look back to normal... however you will not see the XML icons.

Just for your info, MSIE is a terribly awful browser and isn't used much anymore. Microsoft has even stopped supporting it. I would suggest that you use Apple Safari browser if you can.

LOL I was wondering what that was yesterday! I clicked on it and saw this weird writing. I thought that maybe I was hallucinating or something LOL. It'll probably take me awhile till i try using it.

I'm using some version of IE. I don't know which one. It's whatever's on the iMacs I have here at school and at home.


I hate downloading stuff cos it tends to mess up things on the computer.

Hey! I resemble that remark.

Oh boo, BlogExpress requires the .NET framework. I guess I'll go download it, 23 megs shouldn't take long on my DSL.

I won't pretend this makes any sense to me, but I was wondering what those orange thingies were that have started popping up on loads of sites...problem is, I don't think i'm much closer to understanding what they are...

Guys it's not that complicated, really. The News Aggregator is basically like a mini-browser that grabs summaries of new articles and entries from any site you subscribe to. So if you like to keep up with a lot of sites, you could have this one window giving you a summary of the articles on 10 sites instead of having to visit each site. Then if you see an article you want to read, you could click to it from within the Aggregator or go to the site with your regular browser. I have all the U2 sites with feeds that I could find set up.

This program is super easy, you can just drag those XML icons to the "add" button in this program and it's done. If you're on dial-up it's especially nice because then you don't load a big site and discover there's nothing you wanted to read anyway.

I'm not busy enough to require that kind of assistance. I need to cure my boredom by allowing myself to manually peruse the sites I visit.

Oh I'm not either, believe me. It's just something else to toy around with.

I'm a self proclaimed nerd and it wouldn't work for me. It says I need a .NET framework. I never even heard of it nor do I know where to get one
