change

I try to be cool as I age & accept change. but sometimes it drives me bonkers.

this morning my computer announces to me that Internet Explorer 7 is available. so I dutifully download it. when I lookd at my new home page I cdn't find "My Favorites." now this list is my map to the internet universe. I began trembling with thots of how to reconstruct it. I swear there was no indication on the new home page that it still existd. then finally a new button appeard & I "found" it.

next on tap seems to be Blogger & Hello which is forcing me to make more uncomfortable changes. (& even as I type this I hear these small swooshes which I presume mean something in this new whatever. dear lord... it's a good thing I no longer drink.)

altho it's a relief to have my favorites back I now find that they're changd the way to organize. no longer is there a command to move a favorite into a folder. the instructions say you can drag it there. but that isn't working for me.

you might want to use a different browser like mozilla. I go back and forth between them and explorer. I also downloaded the new 7 and freaked when I couldn't find my favs. but did. I'm stilling with the old blogger until the end. I hate change and also get all flustered.

IE7 is fraught with irritants but I guess those companines need to keep their geeks in jobs. so we get change whether we need it or not.
