Here’s the haps:
I took the second shot today and my arm really hurts a lot more than it did with the first shot. Many people told me their experience was just the opposite but leave it to me… But now I know that it is only the Mighty Microsoft corporation whose brave and brilliant leader Bill (so brilliant that he recently got caught with his pants down in more than a figure of speech) that can run computers. Penguins and orchard fruit stand aside! Besides, he’s probably only going to have $74,000,000,000 and needs our help to rebuild his fortune.
Honestly, since Microsoft has changed the way their browser is written from the dear old Internet Explorer and Legacy Edge to the modern Chromium platform I don’t see a lot of difference between any of them. I tried a couple of the so-called “privacy browsers” but really they just swap out their ads and following you for the ads you currently get. Another thing that someone pointed out is that some bloggers do make a bit of money from placing ads on their sites and using browsers that block them, especially replacing them with their own, is just kind of wrong. My point is not against ad-blocking software, if it works for you, do what you need to, my point is that nothing is free. Even on the interwebs. TANSTAAFL. There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch. The Russian guy in the book The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress (Oops! Sorry Mr. Gates, Your Majesty, Sir. I was just quoting the title of the book and didn’t mean to bring up the painful subject of mistresses. Oops. Sorry again, sire.) says it is an old Russian word but if you believe that…well, there’s a sucker born every minute as Nigerian Princes and billionaires ailing from cancer looking to you, someone they have never seen before, to take their money and distribute it, can assure you.
I also decided to try the Microsoft Edge browser because our friend, Colin McQueen, has been having trouble posting to WordPress using it so I thought I would try myself and see what happens.
But, aside from this pain in my arm, I am feeling better. I have decided on a course of action to take against the little lizard and I think he will be unhappy.
And remember, if con is the opposite of pro does that mean congress is the opposite of progress?
