#923: Geburtstag, er, Donnerstag.

In one of my German classes, I forgot the name for "Thursday" and said "Geburtstag" (birthday) instead of "Donnerstag" (Thursday). The German teacher--who was native German--got a laugh out of it.

As you can see, PreCure has resumed. I finally got through the first episode. I don't know if I'll continue the story past that, but at least I've got that much.

It came to 29 pages, though two of the pages are 2-panel efforts. Still, it's a pretty thick deal when you're talking about one episode out of forty-nine. If I continue to do this, it'll take years to complete the story.

On the other hand, I can skip several episodes entirely since they're basically re-hashing the first ep: something happens, the girls meet up, something else happens, Bad Guy appears, girls transform, BG summons Zakenna, girls fight bad guys, girls use the Marble Screw, BG escapes and goes home. The hard part then becomes making sure I get all the plot development in without bothering to do a blow-by-blow of the series. And making it a damn sight funnier, too.

Screencap webcomics look a lot easier than they are.

Having finally had enough of various pages crashing Netscape--and since Netscape officially becomes abandonware starting March 1--I DLed and installed Firefox on this machine, and now I'm trying to get used to it. Importing my bookmarks from Netscape wasn't difficult.

What's annoying me is that it's underlining words that it thinks I've misspelled. I turned off that feature in Word and I want to turn it off here, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to do it. No matter; I'll get there eventually.

(Ha! Found it already. The little red underlines are history, baby!)

Wait, they're not. WTF. It probably won't change until I restart the bitch since there's no "apply" button in the options menu. *sigh*

Still, even if they never turn off, it's better to have that than to have the damn browser crash every time I try to look at a web site which doesn't perfectly conform to the HTML spec as Netscape/AOL sees it. I have an intense dislike for the way Internet Explorer does things, so I have no desire to use it, particularly since IE is the one hackers go after the most.

Also, it seems to work a bit faster than Netscape. We'll see if it has the same annoying "I lock up at random and crash if you try running uTorrent at the same time!" issue that Netscape has. Hopefully not.

There's not a lot in the news this morning which makes me want to comment. I suppose if I wait for Boortz to get his kiester in gear there'll be something interesting there.

I can't seem to find the post in which I linked to a story which mentioned Ford's money woes and why they lose $5,000 per car they sell. Damn it.

Oh well. More later, I guess.
