Thanks. I must do that or simply accept a life withdrawn from dependence on computer use for entertainment. I have gotten real sick of this. IT won't bug me when I am in Peru and Philippines because I will be entertained enough to forget about computers :) Every time I do the update the notice says to do, I end up with no improvement.
use firefox.

I hope my car is back to normal tomorrow. It doesn't like the cold at all. Wheel balancing issue, gearbox/transmission fluid cold/thick, weird noises lol.

If I helped in any way, click that cool little "Thanks" button.

Opera seems to actually be working it appears. I think it is a browser popular in Russia.

not unusual about the weather here in Gatineau
That's too bad. I'll special order one Polar Vore-Tex complete with high winds and one whole weeks supply of snow, absolutely free!

Was anyone else ready to fling a giant string of expletives this morning because of traffic. It took me 4hrs to drive from Hamilton to the airport, there were problems on the 403 and then the QEW was shut down and diverted to Eastport drive. Once I got out of that nightmare OMG the 401 what another drive from hell, transport trucks that were just spinning their wheels

The trucks today caused pretty much all of the chaos 4 trucks crashed on the 403 I heard about more doing the same on the 401, then there were stalled trucks all over blocking lanes, then they were the ones that couldn't make it up highway ramps, the icing on the cake (this one from the looks was the car drivers fault), 401 collectors towards the 427 looked like an older smaller VW Golf maybe, I didn't care I was so fed up with traffic some lady manged to get her car partially run over on the drivers side by the car looks like she cut the truck off or was probably yapping on the phone and not paying attention, she was fine but hopefully learned to pay attention she was lucky she didn't get killed.

My bony butt was killing me from sitting so long in the car. LOL :razz:
401 was terrible this morning, I took it from Mississauga to Toronto. I almost had muscle cramps when I eventually came down

To end off the day, I had to change the new weather thread status to this because of unfortunate signs I am seeing in forecast models. I am pretty have certainly that actual typical winter conditions will hold through this month, something that should never happen in a month like march, but looks to happen now. CFS, GFS and EURO models show nothing but this. NOAA is the same. Only thing that appears to be increasing again is the precipitation. Although we are supposed to be back to rain-snow mixes by now, expect typical winter snowfall to keep on coming the whole rest of the month.

So it looks like in June and July we will be asking you if its safe to take our snow tires off, or is there more snow in the forecast. This weather is turning me into such a negative person, I want to cry. :cry:
