Friday the Thirteenth. Sorry that there haven’t been a lot of updates this week. It has been a really rough week. We spent a day and a half without any Internet access at all and I have been trying to get service reinstated on my cell phone as well.

The weather has been so awesome this past week. I can’t believe how nice it has been. We have had the windows open all week. I am really happy to have fresh air to breathe again. It is nice to be able to sleep in a cool room as well. It has been a while.

Eric and I are scheduled to be returning to Pittsburgh on October 2. We haven’t been there in a while so it will be nice to be able to get back.

Faster than I can even write about it, new versions of Mozilla keep coming down the pipe. Mozilla 1.2 alpha (just for us bleeding edge types) is out today and ready for you to give it a spin. I just went to Mozilla 1.1 but I will probably upgrade anyway because I am like that. I will let you know how it is working. [Tech note: Not only do Mozilla, commonly packaged as Netscape, and Opera allow you to download webpages faster than with Internet Explorer, but they also are able to block pop-up windows and Mozilla has an add on that can filter out many banner ads as well. Not only is all that advertising annoying, but is slows down your connection and your computer.]

I went down and spent a little time with my mentor at Empire State today. My evaluations are not back yet from my summer semester. So I am unable to enroll for classes this fall. I still have two classes from summer semester that I need to finish anyway.
