Though this has probably been the busiest week for releases that the Toolkit has seen in quite a while, I’m going to release another new version. This one does not contain any new functionality – none whatsoever. It does, however, include a new pointer to the automatic updater. If you’d like to know more, read on.
With the official release of Internet Explorer 7 (and perhaps Firefox 2), you may find yourself wanting to uninstall the IE7 beta, but you get a message that tells you to log in as the same user who installed the product originally in order to uninstall. If you’re like me and have a tendency to muck about with users, that might be a lot easier said than done. Luckily, there is an answer.
Well, that was one of the shortest version cycles in history. For those of you who have been using the Bloglines Toolkit for a while, probably not the fastest, but still, it was pretty quick.
While Firefox 2 was actually released yesterday, it’s still pretty decent news, because a lot of folks have been waiting for a while, and the improvements are decent. Thus far I’m not certain that I would say that it deserved a jump all the way to version 2 (it seems more like a move to 1.6 was in order), but it’s an improvement, from what I can tell.
Towards the end of August, I wrote about our experience with Blockbuster Rewards. I’m sad to say that this has not improved much. But I do have some interesting news to report. I can’t yet say if I’ve cracked the code, but during the month of September, I was able to make some progress, and we came home with the coupon that allows us to get a free rental during the month of October. Now we just need to see if we can keep track of the thing and remember to take it back next month. So without further ado, a quick refresher, and then how you can try and get yours.
