  3. il_wiccan is talking about something like this except for Opera. This was really handy on the old TechTV boards. CopyURL Freeware - Moon Software http://www.moonsoftware.com/freeware.asp right click on favorite in IE > Copy Link then you can simply paste it to these boards. It adds commands Copy URL, Copy Link and Copy Name to the context-menu of Internet Shortcut files. Then you can simply paste this information from the clipboard to your e-mails, HTML editor or other documents. I'm gonna search for something like it today. I would like to know too. Maybe someone that uses Opera regularly may know?

  5. I was busy yesterday and only got online for about 30 minutes last night. I've had Opera, but no more ads now, after I saw this post last night. I do like FF better, but Opera is faster. That could change(maybe). Thanks LCplMurphy!

  12. Happy Birthday 12lostcause12!
  13. Am I using my computer too much? I warned my son, "You've got a heap of trouble in your shopping cart and you're one click away from check-out!" I told my daughter, "Ctrl+X your attitude young lady!" I challenged a co-worker, "If you don't believe me, just Google it!" My uncle was having a mid-life crisis and I reminded him, "Be careful—when you reformat, important files can get lost." "Even though Grandma's gone," I consoled my father, "she'll remain in our registry." When my wife reminded me to do something for the tenth time I replied, "Net congestion made it take longer to download".
