Hop Along

I’m still working on restoring my PC at work. I also decided to update my copy of Codeweaver’s CrossOver Office and therein lies (lays?) a tale. On one hand, it seems to solve a problem I had with running Lotus Notes in that I can now install it as myself rather than root. On the other hand, in trying to install MS Office, CrossOver wants to install IE 6. The install begins, but then hangs after downloading about 1297 or 1298 KB. Although I can’t be sure, I think our corporate firewall is blocking part of the install where the digital certificate is verified. So, I went home and downloaded it there.

I’m dealing with other problems but I’ll survive.
