I use Firefox because I'm l33t like that.
My cool husband uses Internet Explorer because he's a n00b.
When he has computer problems he yells "Piece of shit" which makes me come running. 9 times out of 10, I tell him he has a PEBCAK.
Over the years he has conditioned me. He doesn't have to ask for my help any more. All I need hear is "Piece of shit!" and like Pavlov's dog I start drooling to fix whatever his PEBCAK is and be a hero.
It's good to be a l33t techie married to a n00b. You always feel useful.
Sometimes though it's not good to be a two-blogger household.
I use Firefox on his PC, and he uses Internet Explorer. He started using Firefox to be l33t like me, but he's still a n00b. He made a comment on someone's blog last night without dumping cookies first, so it came up under my ID. He told me about it this morning. He thought it was funny.
I'm real particular about the blogs I comment on. If I comment on non-adoption blogs, I don't use this ID. Cause I don't want grateful people coming here. They're adoption n00bs. When I comment on my husband's Wordpress blog, I use a different name each time. For the email address I put in something silly and obscene, like email@example.com because I'm juvenile like that.
You know it wasn't the end of the world that he posted a comment on someone's blog under my cookies.
But I blew up. I wish I didn't blow up like that. I feel bad about it. It was just an honest mistake.
I just don't want people are who aren't down with my l33t points of view coming here. Also he's a political blogger, and those politico's love to argue.
I also wish I didn't get mad so easy. That's such a n00b thing to do.
If you're a two-blogger household and share PC's, here's a tip for you. Set up a separate profile for Firefox so you've got separate cache and cookie directories. Close Firefox and click on the Start button, then click on Run. In the open box, type this:
and set up a different profile. Be sure to uncheck the box that says don't prompt for profile. That way you won't leave blog comments under wrong IDs.
If I wasn't such a n00b at times, I would have done that from the start.
I'm very behind in my blog reading, and will be off for the weekend tomorrow afternoon. Have a great weekend everyone! Hopefully will catch up with all on Monday.
