Sorry for not blogging much

September 30th, 2007 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

Meh – sorry my blogging rate has decreased quite dramatically the last two weeks: a combination of workload, tiredness and problems with the Mozilla Firefox browser have prevented me from blogging when I wanted to.

What problem with Firefox? Well, I rebooted and then Firefox wouldn’t stay open for more than 2 pages at a time without crashing (sometimes it wouldn’t even load without crashing). Tried loading Firefox in safe mode (with extensions disabled) and same problem. So how did I fix it? Basically, I somehow managed to track it down to an update with Real Player pushed out via Google Updater which had a dodgy Firefox/RealPlayer integration which caused Firefox to die. Uninstall Real Player and it worked perfectly.

Only problem I have had to date with Google Updater though.

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
