I have mentioned before that I am an Edge/Bing (now Bing beta) user most of the time. I also use Chrome/Google for some stuff, usually when I can't find what I want from Bing. I use IE for financial stuff, because my bank has given me free some high security software for it, and I have Firefox for checking sites if they are not working properly.
I am, you my say, an equal opportunity employer.
For the last week I have been frantically Bingleing some fairly esoteric techy stuff and was getting nowhere - except sites that MS or Google wanted me to go to. (Insert various pachydermial Soapbox expletives here).
Out of frustration, and while consuming a cup of Orange Pekoe, I recalled I had installed Vivaldi a couple of months ago. I quickly updated it, configured it to my liking, and set up DuckDuckGo as my default browser and home page.
Within two hours I had found more useful stuff that I was looking for than in the previous week with Bing and Google. Finally I have a search engine that finds the sites I want rather than those which pay the search entity the most, and a browser that stops elephants from following me all over the web.
I didn't click a single story in today's daily news email but felt so compelled to tell everyone about this. Maybe this will make tomorrow's "Your say!" list. Even the cartoon wasn't funny, I was cringing when I saw the final frame. Does anyone still put a laptop on their laps? I remember radiating my nether regions on the frequent!
Can the Prion already drive by itself? I would fall asleep if I had to crawl like that. I thought the days where you had to sneak around like that were over. Provided that the weather is good and not too many eggheads roll around in the way, I love to drive at 130 MPH or a little more.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
I really miss living in Germany sometimes. One of the hardest things when I moved to the US was the highway crawl.
Worse than that, I moved to Tulsa, OK where they seem to think that any speed over 45 MPH in the middle or left lane will cause irreparable brain damage!
In some cases I observed, I can believe that is actually true!
I remember doing an 880 km (550 miles) trip in under 5 hours including two stops for petrol and one for a sit-down breakfast!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
My 16 year old is learning to drive, and we got to talking about what kind of car he'd like to drive, his response? "Anything, as long as it's not a Prius!", apparently it's not cool amongst the younguns, who knew?
