Talk to the hand

OKay what gives?

Wondering whether Etisalat here is secretely owned by Microsoft. I can't get to the downloads side of the Mozilla FireFox site...

"We apologize the site you are attempting to visit has been blocked due to its content being inconsistent with the religious, cultural, political and moral values of the United Arab Emirates. "

WHAT THE HECK?!?! what religious, cultural, political and moral values?! it's just a friggin' WEBBROWSER that's way better and more secure than IE!

You tell me, what's so 'offensive' about http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

:: grrrs and calls up ISP ::

edit: Sent in a complaint. and spoke to the guy on the phone, he said he filed a complaint as well. SO i got two floating around. Let's see what they do.

Productivity?

OKay...maybe this is just to irritate ISP support more, but on my main PC I've switched to Thunderbird Mail client in addition to FireFox.

And I've finally got the PC back up and running. Mostly anyway, I've yet to tinker with the sound settings on it. need to dig up my sound files, I'm not entirely sure where i plugged 'em in... O.o

Slightly other news, I think I'm ready to launch my IRC bot in for real-time testing. Just need a good name for the dude(dudette) Fifteen characters max, and it can't be bartender or waitress. Java? Dunno.. heh. one of those things I gotta mull over, and I bet'cha i'll get hit by one at a weird time.
Hands/eyes up

(no subject)

Ehrm... I can't write for long periods of time... my right hand just stops cooperating... O.o How'd I find that out? Filled out 6 Library Request forms...and erf.. I'm missing out letters when typing with my right hand too.. drat... that can't be good... back to the wrist support..

At least the PC's back in working order (aside a few minor bugs.. Installed the wrong driver for the keyboard, so it's popping up the stupid little "HotKey Violation" error messages for some posessed reason... :: mutter :: ) and I've made my own ICQ/AIM/MSN sound scheme, got bored of the ones I had before, so decided to create my own bits and pieces.

Man Thunderbird Mail's nifty! :: hogs:: I wuv it!

Bot names.... Temp name Java...but it's not exactly that type of bot primarily.. i'm planning on using it for mission updates for the Horizon channel; (as well as logging channel stuff) and maybe later TF17 related news and bits and pieces... gotta figure out how to code some of that stuff in yet.. hehe... DannyBot sounds ... um.. yeah.. no... Ash'rak's too.. um.. mean sounding, considering it means 'killer' lol.. Tekma'te maybe.. meaning master/teacher/wise one. I don't know...
