Chrome Update

So one of my complaints of Chrome was that certain sites would not work in Chrome. Thanks to Brian Hoppe I have found the answer. Use the Explorer plug in. Just google it and you will find it. You can simply click a button within Chrome and it converts it to Explorer. You can even make it open certain sites every time within the Chrome plug in.

Thanks Brian!

Dear Windows 7, why are you so slow?

It took my laptop 15 minutes to boot this morning. I have made sure you have no unnecessary programs running, I have made sure your hard drive is not fragmented and I have made sure you have been taken care of with proper virus protection and malware protection.

Yet you treat me like a Windows XP machine. Fast in the beginning and slower every day. You keep it up and I am going to have you erased. Worse yet, I may water you...

I love you Chrome, I hate you Chrome

First of all for all of my non techie friends what is Chrome? Yes it is what bumpers used to be, but in this case it is Google's web browser. It replaces that e on you computer that gets you to the web (You know, that www. thing)

Loren suggested I try it and I have and really like it. It works well for this blog, google docs and much more. However, Microsoft has clearly written some parts of its world in language that will not work with Chrome. I have found several sites that just don't work with Chrome.

So for right now I am going to stick with both. Maybe in the future I will be able to use Chrome alone. As for my non techie friends, stick with the e.

Finishing what you have started

I was talking recently with someone who was thinking about leaving without finishing their complete commitment. We were weighing the benefits to the consequences. In this case the immediate benefits were probably better than the the immediate consequences. However, one thing that I have always tried to do in business and life was finish what I started. If for nothing else but for principal.

You never know when not finishing what you start would come back and haunt you. You want to be known as dependable and staying till the end.

In the end, we worked out that finishing was the best. I wish everyone would do that!
