The More Things Change...

the more I really, really hate them. Yahoo already changed its homepage in the US a few weeks ago, which pissed me off but I wasn't saying much. I only check Yahoo US once a day or so, anyway, to get the headlines.

Now they're changing it in the UK, too. And they always act like it's such a good thing. "Oooh, we've made special changes! Look! Bright! Shiny!" Well I hate the new homepage. It's ugly and it's (for me, at least) counterintuitive, and I wish they'd just leave well enough alone. Quit fucking with it! It doesn'r work any better or faster, why do you have to mess with it?

Anybody know of a good homepage I can use, with headlines and stuff?

In other news I've been having an absolute blast the last couple of days here. Superdickery. Serously, even if you're not a comic geek or even a mild fan you'll laugh, I promise. Set aside some time, though, there's almost 200 images in the "Examples of Superdickery" alone. The one where Superman explains why he won't marry Lana or Lois (15th in the gallery, but start from the beginning, trust me) made me laugh so hard I literally could not speak, and I was still giggling over it hours later. In fact, I'm still giggling about it now.

So that's what's happening with me. I'm hoping to finish one WIP this week, and that won't happen if I don't get to work. So off I go.

I use MSN for a home page at home. Here at work (constantly glancing over my shoulder as I surf the blogs) I have no choice but the one the computer geeks set up. But for the juicy headlines I like to shoot over to the Drudge Report. For instance: I knew before just about anyone in the office that Ben Roethlisberger was in a motorcycle crash. -JTC

Yeah, I thought about MSN but I don't like the way they look too much either.

I don't check Drudge often, but there is invariably something of interest there! Thanks for reminding me, it's been a couple of months. :-)

And thanks for stopping by!

There's this really nifty website called Fold that lets you design your own home page and make it look the way you want--it also doubles as a blog and a personal website (I suppose that means it trebles). It requires a very small knowledge of HTML (mostly cut-and-paste), and there's one other catch: you can't use it with an Explorer browser. You have to download Mozilla Firefox.

The good news is Firefox is almost identical to Explorer, and it's free, and so is Fold. It would take a bit of setup but it does look cool...
