Newer is not always better

Why is it that¬† some companies feel the need to ‘improve’ things and not give you the option to stick with what was already working fine? Paul already heard my rant on the new coconut phone [msn messenger] and what it did to having email window continuously open in my browser – now I am sharing it with all of you.

For some reason with the new version msn messenger chat windows pop up on your hotmail email screen because you are now logged on and viewable there – why I have no friggen idea. It is absolutely crap especially when you have a small screen lap top because the close window option disappears beyond reach and hogs screen. Looks like I am not alone I googled ‘I can’t stand new msn messenger help’ and I am not the only one who feels this way. Now to figure out what to do about it.

Glad I was patient enough to check 2 sources the first one had me downloading a repair I probably did not want. I somehow managed to find windows messenger on my computer and had to laugh as I tried to get it up and running. Funny how something that was second choice and something I never cared for now comes in first place for a solution. I managed to log on just long enough to know it works and them my @ss got booted – I have been bouncing like a ping-pong ball this morning. Sadly the verdict shows that uninstall was not successful in fixing my issue – anyone have any suggestions?

Going to go in search of pictures for today’s post enough with tech time – too long fixing a glitch. I did not have to go far for pictures – thanks to Colette I even have a story to go along with. Now all I have to do is find one for front page as it needs to be landscape – that one came courtesy of Elbert Greer and his fantastic Belize Bird pictures.


Nety Wasn’t Just Hanging Around – Kitten Saved from Death by SAGA

SAGA just doesn’t help the San Pedro Community to deal with stray dogs, they also do cat ’round ups’ too. Volunteers and staff will travel around San Pedro and trap or capture stray, sick, abandoned and neglected cats.

It was very lucky for little Nety that SAGA was doing a roundup that very day. Nety, a tiny little kitten had managed to get herself all tangled up in some netting on a fence. She had been stuck in the fence for hours in the hot sun before SAGA discovered her.

On that day two members of the SAGA team were looking for stray and abandoned cats when they found a terrified and dying kitten in desperate need of help behind a house near the bridge. They gently released the poor kitten and immediately realised that it was seriously dehydrated and gave it some water before quickly getting back to SAGA for some tender loving care.

Of course the name ‘Nety’ stuck and she recovered to become a healthy and beautiful cat. Her experience clearly left her with a huge appreciation for human beings and so she was quickly adopted by a loving family and now has a permanent home, where she gets plenty of fresh food and water, tons of love and attention and a family to call her very own. SAGA paid for all of her veterinary costs and made sure that she was spayed so that she won’t have any unwanted kittens that might end up in the same danger that she found herself in because she had no one to care for her.

In five years, one single female cat can be responsible for 20,000 descendents. There are just not enough loving homes for all of those cats. Of course kittens are adorable, but until there are no more unwanted cats in San Pedro, please have your cat spayed or neutered. It is the right thing to do and one of the best ways that, as an animal lover, you can prevent cruelty and suffering.

Come and visit Nety’s friends who were left behind at SAGA Humane Society.

If you see a cat or dog that is injured or suffering call SAGA on 226 2366 and they will be there to help.

    Thanks for posting about Nety – thank goodness she was found, and SAGA once again saved the day! I love a happy ending.

    Hey there,
    I stopped using MSN and now use aMSN messenger. It’s not made by windows but runs like MSN without all the hassle. It’s freeware and has a lot of handy add-ons, and none of the intrusiveness as MSN.

    It might be worth at try. Try installing it, you can still have MSN on your machine at the same time (just not logged in)…

    It sounds like I work for them, sorry (I don’t). I have been using it for about 3 years now instead of Microsoft’s version.
