Is tomorrow the day that I’m suddenly going to have IE7 pushed to me? Yes, I know I can always say no or maybe even block it. But just in case, tonight I submitted the C3 payroll through ADP and did all the updates to the CT website that I needed to do (boy do I hate that CMS). Those are the only two sites that I absolutely have to use IE6+. If anything breaks, I’ll have some time now to figure it out.
Speak of which, last weekend we were in Manhattan and we just happened to navigate ourselves towards the Apple Store on 5th Avenue. Eric hadn’t been there before. I had one reason to check it out…I wanted to see if they had any MacBook Pros running Parallels or Boot Camp. No, they didn’t…but they did have one, single iMac running Parallels. I patiently waited my turn for it and gave the environment a little spin. It was very easy to use, and felt quite responsive. I’m being realistic, any fresh install of an operating system feels blazing until you start loading stuff into it. This install only had Symantec anti-virus installed. I fired up IE and made an edit to the CT site without a problem (not like I was going to submit payroll from the Apple Store). It’ll do.
I’m not making any major purchases for a while. Recently the IRS hit us for a sizable bite from that disastrous 2004 we had. And as I type, Eric is on his way to Zurich (yes, Switzerland) for a 2.5 week business trip. So all I’m looking to do in November is survive single parenthood with my sanity in place. Anyone taking bets?
