I tried rebooting, I tried turning my computer off, letting it cool down, turning off my router, and then rebooting. I tried updating Opera to V9 (very cool btw, though they've moved stuff around, like I wasn't freaked out enough?!?!?!). Nothing. Not one damn lj page would load. or vox. or typepad. Which leads me to think it was a sixapart problem except I could load Six Apart itself.

I cried, I clung to literati on YIM for most of those hours, between sobfests and angry snarling, clicking refresh every few minutes with no success.

Then she logs off, I give it one more go, and here you all are!

*snuggles the mitten*

It was hell! And totally bizarre. I still don't know why, but I'm beginning to suspect YIM. *glares at the smiley face of evil*

Has it been bugging you to update?
I finally had to, and then Cat found a tiny little program to dl that made the ad embedded in it go away. Yay!
*kicks ym*

It *has* been bugging me, which I think is really really rude when they're trying to force me upgrade to a BETA version. Or maybe they think that's how to spell 'Better'?

There's an ad? There's a program to get rid of the ad? Huh.

I'm not ready to update YIM. I only just updated Opera and I'm still getting used to the changes. Why oh why have they made it so I can't see the page until it's *completely* loaded? Before, I could be halfway down my flist before the last graphic loaded and now - not. *kicks 'new and improved' liars*

The changes in YM weren't too big - i turned most of it off in the 'options' menu or whatever. Yes, an ad. When you decide to update *i only went to the next number up, not the beta* i'll show you the dl.

Is Opera your browser? I like Firefox - it works well for me. I don't *ever* let it add stuff. Every upgrade they want to do all this new toolbar crap and etc. and man - hate it!

I keep most of the options turned *off*. Heh. I'm cranky!

yeah Opera is my browser. I updated cos the new version works with torrents, so I can dl torrents if I want (in theory). Also because some coding on some sites doesn't work in the older version and I was hoping to be able to access them without having to rely on Exploder. *g*

Thankfully, the newer version installs over the old one and keeps all my settings, unlike earlier versions, which always sucked.

Lit uses Firefox after I kept nagging her to get away from Exploder, and now she nags at me to use Firefox.

Last time she and I updated YIM we lost the ability to play Literati in the game panel. That sucked. Maybe another update would correct that? *ponders*

I dunno what a 'game panel' is... If your yahoos are not the same version? Then they aren't compatible anymore. Rere and i found that out the hard way. So very, very annoying.

Firefox rox. I love it. IE totally wrecks my computer's ability to run. Gah.
