LiveJournal Toolbar

weather: sunny
outside: 2°C
mood: okay
notnormalikeyou* made a LiveJournal Toolbar that sits in your taskbar and can do funky things. It opens up IE and ignores your browser defaults because a toolbar is really an eeny-weeny IE window, so it's like shift-clicking a link.

It's very cool, but I have no use for it. Mainly because that's not the way I do things. I also use a double-height taskbar, so it makes the LJ Toolbar look all buttwhack and annoying. And IE opening up by itself really frosts me.

I started using the double-height back before Mozilla's tabbed browsing. I'd have little slivers all across the taskbar. See those two Mozilla windows? There are more than 10 webpages open in each of them.

As bananas (or not?) as my taskbar looks, this is my home machine. I'm much much worse at work. Something in the Mozilla core crashes my machine at work, so I'm stuck with IE... no tabbed browsing so there are 5 bajillion windows where one should have done fine.

* - dunno'bout you, but I'm not "Norma" either... XD

Eh, well, not that I use Mozilla, but I do have a double height taskbar 'cause I like having everything *there*. The Boy "fixed" that for me once, and I had to give him what-for for thinking I was so dumb I hadn't done it on purpose. :P

So combined with Time Management Coping Strategy #47 (Don't make it any easier to get distracted than absolutely necessary), I didn't get the LJ toolbar either.

Heeheehee... you could go over and "fix" Boy's machine too =D "It's really more efficient this way..." XD

Weee! I thought I was the only one to use a double height task bar. What happens when you have 4 documents, a chat, a forum and several MSN windows, mail, and various writing research sites open.

I'm not alone! there are others of my kind!!!

If I knew how to screencap, i would.

Hee... =) Click on [a spare blank spot on] the Taskbar and go ALT-PrintScreen (it's above the Insert key for me). That will copy the taskbar.

Then you open up a graphics app (Photoshop or something... MS Word if you have nothing else) and go CTRL-v. That pastes it.

If you stick it in Word, send it to me and I'll deal with it for ya =)

If you press PrintScreen without the ALT, it grabs your entire screen. ALT tells it to just grab the active window object. Neat-o, huh? =D

Nifty... except that a bunch of people probably don't have spare blank spots in their taskbars :P

Yeah, I was hardpressed to find a blank spot on mine too. =)
