I’ve found an OS X solution to my ongoing battle with popups and popunders. I found a wonderful hosts file and merged it into NetInfo, told my system to check it’s local hosts first than the network and voila my popups/unders are mostly a thing of the past. I also set IE to ask on a site by site basis for cookies permission. It’s amazing to me how many sites want to deposit cookies on my machine, like so many dogs marking territory.
Yesterday Mike and I went downtown, it was just such a nice day for an outing. We went to go see the exhibition of John Waters photos down at the Greg Kucera gallery. There were a few photos that I definitely wanted, both of them had Edith Massey in them. We strolled along 3rd ave. towards Pine, and went through some of our favorite bookstores. Heading towards the Market we had a plan for lunch, we were going to go from one end to the other and pickup a few things a few things there. We ended up with peroshikis, chocolate eclairs, REAL german potato salad, landjagger’s (german sausage/salami’s), and Underberg (a very strong tasting appertif, like liccorise). Having gathered our lunch we headed down to the waterfront to sit and eat, what a beautiful day, it was like a picnic. Afterwards we headed home and just hung out, talked, drank coffee and played on the computers.
