Yay! Happy Birthday Me! I am 27 today.
And I am on the war path against Netscape again today. The antagonism
between myself and that damn corporation just never stops!
I have three free web-based email accounts with netscape. I use these
email accounts on a daily basis and have quite a bit of legitimate email
going through there. I had even shut down my Hotmail account and transferred
almost everything to the Netscape accounts. Why? Because Netscape
was serving my needs better than Hotmail.
Hotmail has this very annoying habit... When you click on a link in
Hotmail email, it opens a new window and puts the link in a two frame
page. The bottom frame is the actual link you clicked on. The top
frame advertises Hotmail. bah. Annoying. And I can't bookmark the
link, because the frames put a lot of garbage into the URL. And in
IE, my primary browser, there is no easy way to get rid of the frames.
So. That was Hotmail. I got annoyed and moved all my email to
Netscape Webmail, which opened links in a normal manner.
Until today. Today, of all days, on my birthday!
Netscape decides to do the same thing as Hotmail,
with the link going into a frame.
Ga. Witness the Static Girl banging her head against the wall.
uh, huh. And now what am I supposed to do? Take a few aspirin and
shoot off a few "Please, please don't do the frame thing" to Netscape.
And then? Sighs. Find a new free email account and start making the
move there. Boy. Am I annoyed!
