extensions for IE
I knew this would come. I just knew it!
IE people have opened up a new site: IEAddOns.com.
(For the not so bright:)
Only IE serves little purpose, as does only FF.
Most of FF users use it in conjunction with a lot of extensions (equivalent to plugins for IE)
Now if IE comes out without a huge array of plugins to counter FF's extensions they know what might happen!! Not that there weren't any plugins before. They were just too dispersed and users had no way to find out where to get a good plugin and how they were rated.
Now you know.
Now the ultimate for IE would be a plugin that uses FF's extensions in IE. Or one that opens a page using a Gecko engine!
Enjoy the plugins!

(And that is why it crashes a lot too: cuz they took lots of shortcuts ;))
These following few are the ones I remembered from my Win3.1 and MS-DOS's Edit program endeavours, which surprisingly still work in 2k/XP.
Ctrl + Esc : Opens the Start Menu (Useful if you don't have the Start Key on your keyboard. In Win3.1 it used to open the Program Manager's Task List)
Ctrl + Shift + Esc : Opens the TaskManager.
Shift + Ins : Paste (i.e. Ctrl + V)
Shift + Del : Cut (i.e. Ctrl + X)
Ctrl + Ins : Copy (i.e. Ctrl + C)
F10 : Opens the Menu (i.e. Alt. So Alt + F becomes F10 + F etc etc.)
Some of the few I've quite forgotten.
Rest of them are all listed on this page by some guy. And I'm pretty sure Microsoft must have some help file on it. Basically it's the control's behaviour which each application inherits so no biggie.

Not that they were ever gone really....
It's been a long time. Nothing to do with the Cola, or the taste, or the price or the offers or anything actually related to the cola.
They're the Cola Ad wars.
Pepsi comes up with some Pepsi TV ad.
The bloke's asking some techies to adjust his TV antennae to tune to Pepsi TV.
Out pop one of the most hottest anykinda saleswomen I've ever seen. Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor. (They're wearing a uniform and all, but that doesn't fool me. I know who they are.)
But all they do is ask him, "Pepsi TV chahiye?"
And all he does is squirm like a guy getting his first wedgie.
The Ad, however, is to be continued.
Great! I never follow any TV series, now I follow the ad?
But Sprite kicks in, making the second half much more interesting and also clearing up what's Cola and what's TV. (After all, Sprite does say - "Clear hai!")
A total rip-off of course.
I'm just waiting for a reply for this one.
(You know a guy's day is wasted if he starts having opinions about Cola Ads!)
