I must be an acrobat

Have you noticed that PDF files take ages to load in Adobe?

Go to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Reader\plug_ins\ and  move everything in there to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Reader\optional - except for IA32.api (which Firefox, at least, seems to need).

It now loads for me in about 2 seconds, versus the 20 it used to take.

Cheers to biscuitware for the info.

I am cool

My friends page is currently horribly polluted by a meme that spreads exponentially, causing each person to have to respond to every person that comments on them.  On the other hand, at least everyone is saying nice things about each other.  Of course, if you're anything like me you're looking at half of your friends list thinking "Who the hell are you people?  When did I add you, and how did we find each other?"

So your task for today is to tell me what's cool about you.  I want you to tell me something, anything about yourself that you're proud of - I'm fed up of people talking themselves down - tell me something you've done or something about yourself that you think is worth liking.

Here's mine:
I like people despite their faults.  I don't ignore people's faults and pretend they're perfect - I see their faults and I accept them as wort knowing despite them.  We all have flaws, we all act like idiots sometimes, we all make mistakes and we all do things we regret.  I accept this about myself and about others, and I don't hold it against people that they are human.  I believe that people can learn from their mistakes and improve and I try very hard to accept people and encourage them to do that rather than simply dropping them like a stone because they do something wrong.

Right - your turn.  Oh, and do it in your own journal - no leaving comments about yourself here!
