Sumptin' Went Wonky.....

Just spent a couple hours uninstalling, reinstalling, and manually reconfiguring Opera, after downloading the beta of Trillian Pro 3.1. Not sure what went wrong where, just know that both versions of Opera on the computer, the latest stable release and beta 8, started crashing on startup right after installing the Trillian beta, but the Trillian beta didn't crash, if that makes any sense.
I originally tried a basic uninstall and reinstall of both versions, and reloaded the configuration files, but they still crashed. So, had to uninstall, delete both Opera directories, then reinstall, and fiddle with them to get them back to the configuration I had them. All the work paid off though. No more crashes, and Trillian is still running smooth. My only guess is a file got corrupted somewhere.

Old Lady

A family took their frail, elderly mother to a nursing home and left her, hoping she would be well cared for. The next morning, the nurses bathed her, fed her a tasty breakfast, and set her in a chair at a window overlooking a lovely flower garden.

She seemed okay, but after a while she slowly started to tilt sideways in her chair. Two attentive nurses immediately rushed up to catch her and straighten her up. Again she seemed okay, but after a while she slowly started to tilt over to her other side. The nurses rushed back and once more brought her back upright. This went on all morning.

Later, the family arrived to see how the old woman was adjusting to her new home. "So Ma, how is it here? Are they treating you all right?"

"It's pretty nice," she replied. "Except they won't let me fart!"
