Internet Explorer 7 – update

Hmmm. No sooner do I mention the preview of Beta 2 of Internet Explorer 7 than a new preview becomes available. This one fixes my favourite bug, and probably some more besides, so it’s worth updating. And if you haven’t tried it yet, this is as good a time as any.

I had some fun installing it this time. There’s a known problem with permissions on a registry key or two that can prevent the installation from working[1], but I found the answer on the IE7 blog, and it’s now working. I’ll do some tests to see if some other things that broke slightly are happier now.

[1] The error message that pops up gives no clue whatsoever that that’s what’s gone wrong, of course

Starting the week

I was running a bit late this morning[1] and forgot to weigh myself, but I did remember when I got home, when I weighed 209.8 pounds (14 stone 13.8 pounds, 95.2kg).

I bought a couple of pairs of chinos and some shirts in Marks and Spencer today. I’ve been meaning to get some clothes for a while, but keep forgetting, not bothering or just putting it off. And this evening, I got it together enough to tidy my desk[2] and update my Micorsoft Money records. I haven’t been that organised in ages.

[2] Well, I did the same at work last week, so it seemed like a good idea…
