Firefox Coming on Strong

I'm not sure where they gather their information or how accurate it is, but I've been watching this list of web browser statistics for the last few months. The percentage share of IE has actually begun to shrink in favor of Mozilla browsers. I had to lay down the law at the Hatcher household recently and force everyone to use Firefox so I wouldn't have to spend hours every week cleaning out spyware and viruses. Someone has still been cheating and using IE. She's being observed carefully and evidence is being gathered...

If you haven't tried Firefox, you really should. The tabbed browsing alone is worth it, along with not having to worry about popups. I've found there are very few sites that don't work well with it, with the exceptions mostly being Microsoft sites that you should stay away from anyway.

New Hatcher Baby

This past Friday we had a new addition to the Hatcher household. She's an 8 week old black and tan Dachshund puppy that we've named Annie, in celebration of our upcoming two year anniversary. I'll have some pictures of her up soon.

HCA Busted

As many of you know, my recent hospital stay ran up a very large bill, especially with Summit Medical Center which is owned and operated by HCA. I already knew this, but here's more proof that I am being vastly overcharged for my stay there and the surgery. Here's a report from Consejos de Latinos that hopefully will help me with my situation as well
