    oh i forgot...hey rustyhammer...one of the male paramedics caught a glimpse of the monitor while your avatar was on the screen and accused me of cruising an on-line dating service...that's when all the crew started gathering around the 'puter to see what was goin' on...the ladies think you're quite a handsome fella!!!!....they want to know if you ever come to ohio?????.....then we changed threads and got a peek at the kitty...and l think they forgot about you..lol...it's hard to compete with a giant..''kitty''.....but you and denny's ''kitty'' caused quite a stir........lr

    Hey l.rae! What kind of browser do you use?

    I use internet explorer. Up at the top is the "Tools" bar. Pull it down and go to Internet Options. Right there is the place to copy & paste what you want to be your homepage.

    It's that easy (as long as your not on AOL or something like that)

    I love this happy little world called Allnurses.com. So much better than the real world.

    what is your allnurses.com surfing style? i tend to be systematic about everything. first i check my favorite areas, then the new posts. seems to be snowballing, though, soon i'm going to be checking every section! how often do you post? everytime regardless, only when you have something profound to say, only when in the mood, rarely, never?
    ha! i'm always in the mood for conversation. my husband said it runs in the family since my kids and siblings are the same way. my only brother can out-talk all of us put together. :chuckle i enjoy the gift of gab.....as most women seem to do....no need acting like i don't. i may read many posts, but will only post on those that interest me. when i log on to this site, i always click on "today's active threads" and take it from there. quite often i will go to the last page on the threads just to see if i want to respond to something old. :kiss

    l.rae -

    FREE yourself from the opressive bonds of tyranny! Flee the over priced, slow, treachery that is AOL.

    It's 1330 and believe it or not, I just woke up, so I'm a little bit emotional. But believe me, if AOL isn't evil, it's the next best thing. Find another ISP l.rae. AOL is slow, they patronize their users, AND they sell your information all the time. Other ISP's are faster, less expensive, and you retain more privacy!

    Do it! You'll be glad you did!

    Love

    The only good thing about AOL is that they make damn good frisbees.

    I have allnurses.com/forums/index.php saved in favorites...takes me to the forums page and lets me click in a veiw new posts link. The upside is it gives you every thread with a new post since you last logged in...The down side of it is gives you every thread with a new post since you last logged in. That sounds confusing...what I am trying to say is... if you are away for a while and there are beau coup posts and you don't get a chance to read them all before you close, when you come back it is reset...up side is when you have read your way through, if you hit "home" and refresh your browser it updates.

    I also keep 1-4 other copies of IE running, surfing multiple other (non-Nursing) sites at the same time...in addition to AIM and ICQ.
