No real surprises there, I just needed to point out that it's now five past one and I started installing IE7 just under 3 hours ago. Three. Hours.
I needed to test some layouts on IE7, I don't trust IE7 enough to not mess up my parallels install so I decided to put it on my development machine in the office in edinburgh via VNC, ran windows update... wait... security updates... wait... restart... windows update... IE7. Yes, install, please. Installing... wait... restart... run IE7.
"Do you want to run the Phishing filter?"
"Welcome to IE7. Do you want to run the Phishing Filter?"
"Ah, you've opened a new tab. Do you want to run the Phishing Filter?"
I go to the site I wanted to test. True enough, it's gebroken.
Click "Developer toolbar".
Crash... wait... restart... run IE7.
Re-download the Developer Toolbar.
"Do you want to run this?"
"Finished downloading. Do you want to run this?"
"This program may be unsafe. Do you want run this?"
Dear god, if this computer wasn't in a different hemisphere, I'd lamp it one right now.
Run the installer, fail.
Shut down IE7, run the installer again.
Go to the site again.
"This site may be unsafe, do you want to run the Phishing Filter?"
Log out of VNC. Step away from the computer, spend 10 minutes ranting to nobody in particular. Feel somewhat better.
