    I've been using Google Chrome for a few years now, but I'm seriously considering switching back to Firefox or to Comodo Dragon as my default browser because lately whenever I visit this site on Chrome, I keep getting the message about Shockwave Flash not responding or crashing. I've gone to about:// plugins to disable one Flash Player a couple of times now, but then the next day, It just happens again. It's really annoying.

    Are you one of those people that have hundreds of tabs open? I always wondered how that comes about.
    I don't like using bookmarks much either. I've started again because too many times I've thought I could easily get back to a page but then forget the specific thing that makes remembering it easy.
    I'm starting to wonder if a new bookmark folder for every day would be a good idea. The History menu should work like that but it's mostly full of garbage.

    Edit: Actually the History menu may remember your recently closed tabs.

    This happened twice today; normally when the computer suddenly shuts off, Firefox is able to restore everything I had open. But the second time, today, it booted up with none of my tabs or windows there. It doesn't remember them either.

    AAAAAAAAAAGGGGHHHHH

    You could always buy a UPS to handle the power issues. If the breaker trips, it'll switch over to battery power with enough time to safely shut down your computer and/or save your session.

    Also, you can always get an extension for Firefox to handle your session and save your tabs so they don't get lost forever on you.

    One more thing about the electricity. No idea if you rent or own, but maybe it's time to have an electrician to come out? Bad wiring is a massive safety hazard and you don't want to burn up in a fire and we have to have a memorial topic burdened on us where we have to think of nice things to say about you. Think of others for a change. I don't want to write platitudes if I don't have to
    Yup. It's a signature. Go away if you're expecting something interesting here.

    There's nothing more annoying than waiting restlessly all day for a package, getting the mail late, and finding only envelopes there.

    Because of online tracking, I know that post office has had my package for the last two days. Why won't they give it to me?

    Dumbed down weather forecasts.

    You look at that little icon that shows rain clouds and lightning on some days where there are scattered showers that may hit for a few minutes out of the day but it is otherwise pretty nice and even sunny at times. Then days like this that have a big sun symbol with an itsy-bitsy cloud are the most overcast days of all. So you plan wrong.

    At one time I was obsessed with watching the weather channel and it made me paranoid. Every time there was a high wind I felt like I better check things out in case there was a tornado or something.

    It's better to do thing when you want to and just walk outside to see if you're going to get rained out. But it is hard to ignore those forecasts.

    I am house sitting for my aunt right now and right before she left she got a new wireless rotor and forgot to tell me about it. This means my iPad and laptop cannot connect to the internet. Right now I am on her million year old desktop. It has Windows XP. Windows XP I tell you! It gets worse as her keyboard is one of those weird curved ones that is supposed to be good on your hands but instead it is just annoying.

    So I finally fulfilled my lifelong dream of getting a proper big-screen TV. It's a Samsung plasma. I wanted a Panasonic, but they don't make those any more. It's so big though, that it's hard to work with. It has two HDMI ports, so I used to use them for my DVR and my region-free modded Blu-ray player. Cost more for that mod, and it makes it hard to buy another one. It came with apps, which was cool, but the interface for Amazon Instant Video sucks and displays the bitrate rather than the resolution. Unfortunately, I found out that HBO will not cooperate with Sony. I this could not have an HBO Go app. This sucked. Seeking the cheapest option, I bought a Chromecast stick. Chromecast doesn't work with Amazon Instant Video, but more importantly, it has no stinking remote, and interface through the HBO Go app sucks like an industrial carpet cleaner. Plus, it's hard to get the HDMI cable from the DVR out and put Chromecast in because the stand I have isn't big enough for the giant TV. Oh, woe is me .
    Not it will most likely do any good, but I encourage any interested parties to sign this petition.
