hi all. this opera browser is a challenge

for me

after using IE for so long

it is like relearning

i used slim browser for some time

but i wanted one with a news channel feed

i believe avanti has the same feature

so i may try that as well

i remember

when i first started pete and chappy said it was wise to use

different browsers.

and i tried firefox

and got into trouble with it twice so that scared me off

so i was relunctant

to try another

but i like to think

im a little bit more experienced now

hence another browser

and may be another

You can get your RSS feeds through the Opera Mail Client setup which is included with Opera. Make sure you have the newest version Opera 8.51.

Here's some helpful links.

Opera tutorials

Opera knowledge base

Power just went out. I'll be back later. Damn winds are gusting over 50 m.p.h. I'm glad I have a UPS.


Power just came back on. 4 1/2 hours to repair the lines down the street. We got nailed with hurricane force winds of 75+ m.p.h. Many trees and power poles are down over several counties. Temperatures have dropped about 30 degrees actual and the wind chill can cut through you. Temps are expected to drop from 60F early this morning to 10F tonight with winds abating after 3 PM to 40 m.p.h.

I thought I posted this but there is a new update for Opera the new version is 8.52.

I'm a opera head from way back to version 1. I use almost nothing else. It may be challenging in the begining but soon you will wonder how you ever used IE.

Hi Marty....

To update Opera to 8.52, you just have to click on Help at the top and a little menu will show. Then click on Check for New Release then just follow the the install.

Help>Check for new release

Keeping up-to-date

By default, Opera will automatically check for updates, and will notify you if new versions become available. It will also check to see if there have been any site specific fixes that it can apply automatically. If needed, this automatic checking can be disabled using opera6.ini, but note that the site specific fixes are applied separately for each user, and you do not need to be an administrator of your computer to make use of the feature. If automatic checking is disabled, you can still manually check for updates using Help > Check for new release.

Take care...
