Download happy!

Over the course of the weekend I downloaded Firefox *squee* and The GIMP (what a sucky name? really? Gimp?) Hurrah! It’s been so long since I’ve had FireFox so I’m glad to have it’s company again. The Gimp on the other hand I have never had before, I’ve looked at it a few times but while I had Photoshop never took the time to download it.
Did I mention here that I had to format my PC? Well I did, and since then my Photoshop doesn’t work *cries* (I have a partitioned drive, PS was on a different partition to Windows). The Gimp is really not so bad, I quite like it… takes a while to get used to and I haven’t sorted out transparency yet ๐Ÿ™ but I do like some of the features it has that PS doesn’t… plus IT’S FREE! ๐Ÿ™‚

So speaking FF, now that the PC has profiles (before Josh and I used to share) I’ve finally installed it because Josh used to whinge at me for even mentioning it before… the difference is this version of FF has an inbuilt spell checker which I mentioned… now Josh is also using FF! It took me years to even download it and now he’s decided “Oh hey, this is really quite good” >:(Oh well, plus side we’re all happy ๐Ÿ˜€

In other events, have I told y’all about my house mate? He’s slightly wacky (which may in fact be an understatement). One of the specifics is being environmentally friendly… he thinks he’s good to the earth because he recycles (although mainly stuff that isn’t recyclable) meanwhile yesterday he had both the lights on, the dryer, his computer with MP3s blaring, the heater and the TV (with DVD on pause) on and where was he while all of this was happening? Outside having a cigarette! He does this junk all the time, it’s so frustrating… like in the morning he’ll get up, turn the heater, TV and his computer on. Make a cup of coffee and go out side to smoke for the next 30 minutes… why? Who knows!
He also opens the blinds for all the world to see us so most of the heat seeps out the windows anyway!

Yes, he drives me insane.

recently, he has decided he has a phobia of getting lost… uh,huh :ook:

Now that I’ve ranted that out ๐Ÿ˜€ There’s not much left to say… on a happy note though, I just found out my libraries loans out sci fi dvd’s!! (seems like it’s only sci fi and occasionally reality for some reason) so I’ve requested all these things… I’m 1st in the queue for many but people are taking their time!! Come on people!! You’re not the only ones that want to see this stuff ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok, so I’m going to finish here… really ๐Ÿ™‚

    YAY another firefox user ^.^ I adore the built in spell checker, I'd look like a fool without it!

    Your room mate seems strange, to think he's environmentally friendly when he's wasting valuable resources, you should have a talk with him and let him know what you're thinking.

    .House mates, or roommates for that matter, can be hard to live with. My ex-roommate likes to sleep with a lamp on, while I, on the other hand, have to sleep in TOTAL darkness. Drove me insane! Maybe you could talk to your house mate, though, about his habits. Or turn everything off when he's outside smoking. If he says anything, just say casually, "Well no one was in the house/watching tv/etc. so I turned it off." He'll get the hint. Hopefully ๐Ÿ˜‰

    FF is the best. I installed it in one of the library's computers (shh!) cuz IE makes me want to pull my hair out ๐Ÿ˜›

    Ouch, I get sensitive about that kind of stuff re: environmental. Does he not realize what he's doing?? Hypocritical!!! Jeez.
