Why I Dislike Internet Explorer

It may be more of a personal preference, but I dislike Internet Explorer. Yes, this includes all versions, especially the new ones.

Page loads
One thing that absolutely irks me is opening the browser or opening a new tab. There is no way to stop it from loading the homepage (if starting the browser) or from loading their abso-freaking-lutly stupid 'You have openend a new tab!' page. I know I opened a tab. I did that on purpose.

Multiple MediaPortal Setup

So I'm into Media Centers / HTPC's. They're fun, easy, and a great way to both store your media and playback that same media. I currently have a fileserver that serves... files... to my network. Here's my problem: MediaPortal sets up easy, works well, but the only networked part of the setup is the TV Server setup. Now this feature in and of itself is pretty sweet- throw a bunch of tuners into one box, share it to the other networked MediaPortal clients, and viola! Instant TV-over-IP.

My Mind

I've been playing with a program lately called "View Your Mind". So far it's a really interesting program to basically map things out logically. It supports links, colors, branching, etc. and I've found it pretty dang fun so far. Oh, and it's Linux-only.

Check out my mind:

Drupal 7 First Impressions

Call me old fashioned, but I like the way Drupal 6 works. One of the main complaints about Drupal was that there was no dedicated admin section, as there is in Joomla or Wordpress. (I'm assuming for Wordpress, as I haven't used it for more than a few hours). This was overcome with modules, separate admin themes, etc. for those who wanted it. However, I'm not sold. The admin section was under the navigation section, easy to see, easy to read. It was split up into sections, with those sections grouping similar items. It works.

It Happened.

Ok, I finally broke down. After years of hiding behind sarahmcmurry.com, ourtaylorann.com, and westtexaswebdesign.com I finally broke down and created my site. So here it is, plain, boring, and probably broken half the time. Part of this is an experiment to aggregate content, and part of it is an experiment to test Drupal 7 and see if it will be worthy of what I need it to do. So without further adeiu, StevenMcMurry.com!02/15/2010 - 16:06
