Please no cursing. It's IE 7, and it works for me. More stable than 8. Every time I have tried firefox, it has taken a l-o-o-o-o-ong time to load, even with a vanilla install. Life is too short to wait on firefox to load when I could already be online with IE. I'm sticking with what I've got, thank you very much.

WTF is not cursing.

That's not IE7. It's IE6. Compare IE6 with IE7 and see that you are using Internet Explorer 6.

No dip it's more stable than 8, because 8 is still in beta.

Instructables works better with firefox and I find that using Firefox is worth the couple of extra seconds it takes to startup seeing as how pages load faster with firefox. That and all the addons, the added security, the plugins, the more user friendly; the list goes on.

How is it? It's just three letters. Yes, they stand for something, but It's better to say WTF than the actual phrase, is it not?

I could ramble on and on about the whole concept of swearing, but I don't think I will. Right now, all you have to know is that different people take offense to different things. Here, it's the Internet, tons of people will see it, and you can't guess how they'll be offended.

...Okay, let me ramble some more. The whole point of swears is to generally express a negative emotion, or further enhance the meaning of something.

Thus, if one were to drop the F-bomb every 10 minutes, it would lose its meaning, and they'd have to use some other phrase when they get punched ;-)

The opposite is also true. People who never use vulgar language generally still use euphimisms & such. For these people, saying "gosh!" can be just as bad as the F-bomb out of a punk's mouth. (Mentally, and probably amongst their peers. Social norms, however, would show differently)

Personally, I'm in the middle. I do try to stay away from the heavier words however, so that when I do say them, they'll be heavily emphasised.

many people swear just for shock value though.

Exactly, it emphasises their point. (which may just be that they're in a sucky mood at the moment :P )

I completely agree with that last paragraph! Uploading images took almost 10 minutes!

With firefox, one minute of loading is a lot!

Firefox downloaded pretty fast, at least for me....

And LOL, No dip it's more stable than 8, because 8 is still in beta.!

Yes, it is.

Huh, I guess you're right, I do have IE6.

I know 8 is beta. Trust me, I know. I tried it once and it didn't work and messed up IE6 and was generally a pain in the neck. Took some doing to remove, too.

*shrugs* To each his own. Pages load much, much more slowly with FF for me, and it isn't worth the tradeoff to me. But hey, if it works for other people, that's good.

Start the download before you go to sleep, so when you wake up, it'll be done and installed!

That's not so hard to do if you're around at a "quiet" time - GH tends to haunt odd hours, and I am seriously out of synch with most members. I tend to do things like that if I've missed a day or three and there have been interesting topics posted, or replies to earlier posts have built up.
