Avant Browser
I've started using Avant Browser, instead of plain old Internet Explorer now. Although Avant uses IE as its browser component, the interface is (in my opinion) much more userfriendly.

(For those LJ2ME users that haven't already found out, there is a new version on the website, date 19 October)

LJ2ME is a LiveJournal client for Java 2 Micro Edition. It's well nice. If you have a mobile phone that supports Java, go try it! :o)

This site has saved my bacon once again... a while back, the stylus mechanism on my iPAQ went screwy, and Expansys came up with a DIY fix kit. Well, the battery in my iPAQ went down to having a life of about 15 minutes before going completely dead. So, I've just installed a 2Ah battery to replace the old 1Ah battery... thanks to a DIY fix kit from Expansys.

I'd really recommend them for anything mobile: PDAs, mobile phones, wireless networking, Bluetooth, etc.

I've been using Avant Browser for a couple months now! Its great. Only rarely does it lock up on loading something that opens fine in normal IE.

I really love the tabbed-browsing, and middle-mouse-button features. It only sucks because I find myself clicking the middle-mouse-button in the lab at work, and then I just get the page scrolling up/down!

Thanx for the Avant link. It seems to be working very well. IE sorely needed tabbed browsing. :)

I'm really liking this Avant browser, but I've run into one problem with it and LJ. If it is set as the default browser and I try to reply via the form from Outlook Express, I get an error message about the form needing a post and not a get. The reply does not get posted. I wonder if you have found a work around for this other than not letting Avant be the default?

My thoguhts on the new Evanescence video My Immortal

A few nights ago, I finaly saw the new Evanescence video, My immortal, and I think it postively rocks!
I can not describe in words what I felt, but I shall do my best. It was just "BEAUTIFUL". It made tears roll down my cheeks, and Amy Lee was simply georgous, I didn't think human beings could be so elegant. The song fit so well the video and it was as I have said numerous times BEAUTIFUL. I love it. It deserves an award.
