Internet Browser

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 16:40:16 GMT

I need some type of browser other than Chrome or IE for my work computer. I attempted to put FireFox (my preferred browser) on a zip drive as a portable browser. Sadly I could still not use the browser. The IT department has this blocked somehow. Is there a way around this or am I stuck with using IE or Chrome? Is there another browser out there similar to FireFox that will accept my settings and plugin's? I really need the password saver plugin I use. But that has to be on a zipdrive since I cannot download and install anything. I am only a standard user and not allowed to download/install anything to the computer. Thanks any help/advise will be greatly appreciated.

Silliness It's the most horrible song of the year....

In another thread, in another forum, Tom posted: ---Quote (Originally by WT Sharpe)--- I could live the rest of my life without another hearing of Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer or those damn Chipmunks. And what kind of dork thinks a drum solo is a fitting gift for a newborn? ---End Quote--- So I thought it's time for a retread of the ever-popular theme, "What Christmas songs drive you absolutely around the bend?" As for me, as annoying as the novelty songs are, they're not nearly as bad as the worst pop Christmas songs. Off the top of my head, here are three that take me right out of the holiday mood. * Mariah Carey, "All I Want for Christmas Is You" * Paul McCartney, "Wonderful Christmas Time * Madonna, "Santa Baby" I'm also irritated by Eartha Kitt doing the last, but not as much as by Madonna. I'm sure others have equally worthy, or unworthy, candidates that are also in my billboard of worsts. So have at it.

Movies based on your favorite novels.

Reference: My recent re-read of Murder On Orient Express by Agatha Christie, and release of latest movie based on this novel. Transforming genre fiction into memorable cinema is no simple task. I'm not much of a movie watcher, and I somewhat purposefully try to avoid ( :eek: ) watching movies based on my favorite novels, if possible. Reason, I have rarely seen films which have honestly replicated the very inner soul of the novels which I like. This inspires me to obtain more opinions on the experience of other members. How often does a film adaptation of a novel you love meet your expectations? If you find any movies which fully satisfy your expectations of visual representation of a favorite novel, please share with us, this will definitely be helpful to people like me who have so far averted to watch these fascinating visual transformations.

Here is a thread for all things cooking. What small appliances do you use frequently? Favorite recipes. What are you doing for the all you can eat day? Aka Thanksgiving.
