One of the minor drawbacks of getting ADSL is that internet explorer now refuses to work. This is not really a big loss, given that it's something like my 4th choice browser, but it's sometimes useful either for the specific purposes of either seeing what pages look like under IE, or viewing sites that only work in IE, so I would quite like to get it to work again. I'm sure there must be a button that I can press somewhere to say "no you stupid browser, I already have an Internet connection so use that and stop trying to dial up", only i haven't found it yet. Everything else spots the connection without problem, it's just IE that doesn't. Is anyone willing to admit to sufficient knowledge of IE to tell me where this button is?

Another rather cool thing that happened last night (although I didn't notice until this afternoon) is that when I was connected to AIM from both this computer and the ibook, messages sent to me seem to go to just one of the computers, seemingly at random. Very bizarre. I'm guessing that this is something to do with the way that NAT works, but I'm really not sure. If any geeks are watching and would like to confirm or deny this, please do so.

I'm sure that there must be several different ways of varying elegance to solve this problem, but I'm thinking that I'll just make myself an extra AIM (and possibly also ICQ and MSN, but I seem to mostly use AIM (and IRC) these days) account, and then use one from here, and another from the ibook.

and in weird incident of the day, 'Poll #288046 AIM account
Open to: All, results viewable to: All' just appeared in russian when i saw this entry. then i refreshed the page, rubbed my eyes and it was english again.

well done, i am now confused for the rest of the day (it really doesn't take much).

THANK YOU! That happened to me on someone else's poll, and I was starting to think I'd gone completely bonkers and imagined it!

Happened to me as well, but as the user was learning Russian I figured that it was something to do with their journal. Then the same thing happened on the next journal I went to. :P (tis ghosts! ghosts in the livejournal!)
