A New Browser and an Update of an old one

No Gravatar

Well google have just released their new web browser called Chrome. I cant help myself I have downloaded the beta and am using it as I make this post. so far so good. I have just installed it on my XP Pro SP3 machine without incident. It seems a little slow but that is an unreliable variable it may well be the site where this blog is posted.  I like the fact that you can drag tabs off the browsers, in to another window or another monitor if you are lucky to have one  of those.

Just prior to this IE8 now has a public beta and that seems on first looks to be better than its predecessor, well it hasn’t crashed on me yet! However this chrome thing is apparently built using a different paradigm to the existing browsers and is supposedly rather crash proof time will tell I suppose.

It’s a cold night in Adelaide

Another test this time posting from inside Word 2007. I suppose this has the advantage of all the text tools within the program such as grammar check and spell check. Just another way to rant on the net I guess.

Apparently it is snowing in Hobart tonight!!! At least it is a moist winter this year in South Australia bring on the climate sceptics.

A great shed site

Stu’s Shed I should say that I linked to this photo when testing the new Press It feature of WordPress 2.6. Stu has commented on his site that people have pinched content from his site and repackaged at their own. My post is just a proof of concept, and a tribute to what he is doing. A really great site.

Back in Adelaide

Well we are back in Adelaide , back to work and all the usual. We are actually having a winter this year complete with rain. Looking for a flickr plugin to link some photos to the site. Here is a pictureDSC_0187.JPGof the astrological clock in Prague. It is quite an amazing city that has lots old buildings and charm. Apparently it missed in the bombing in WW2 so it remains largely intact. IT might be ine of those cities that will lose its charm as it becomes more of a tourist destination and the wealth of the country increases.

More photos to follow…………….

Pelican in Mykanos

This Pelican was just lurking in Mykanos, quite tame and would let anyone pat it. We saw it several times wandering in the lanes of Mykanos.


AS you can see it was not fussy about who patted it!
