A sample text widget

Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

I bloody hate computers

Which is inconvenient seeing as I work with them. I’ve got a brand new one sat to the desk on my left. I’ve had a similar problem with most of the batch I’ve been building – when I go to Windows Update, Internet Explorer hangs. So I close it, report the error to the dustbin in Microsoft’s cellar, and it pops up with a little dialogue telling me there may be some information that can help resolve this issue.

*Clicky* goes the mouse and I get taken to a page with suggestions. The first of which is to install the most recent patches for IE. Which is what I was trying to do when it crashed. But perhaps this link takes me to a page where I can download them manually? No such luck. It just loops me back to Microsoft Update and IE hangs again.

Gah.

And I can’t use Firefox to download Windows updates, either. I did manage to do it once (after downloading a gazillion clag-on applications and stuff) but never since. Usually, you just get a screen telling you to use IE, which therefore does make it an unremoveable part of the OS – something that came up in one of the original anti-competition lawsuits a few years ago.
