I’ve tried to install IE7 …many times on my laptop. It doesn’t like me. I couldn’t find any of these errors they told you to search from log file. It didn’t install in safe mode either. You can find the log of my last attempt at the end of this post in case you’re smart and think you could help me after seeing it. I’d really like to check webpages I’ve coded with 7th version, after all you never know how weird IE can possibly render standard code.

Secondly I tried to install Media Player 11. Guess what? It stopped at 87% and told me that it wasn’t installed. It also gave me link to web help: now that helps a LOT, really.

The dilemma

Sunday, December 24th, 2006

As I already said on my main homepage: I’m not sure whether I’ll redo Estonian pages. For arguments:

  • I’ve got some content only in Estonian, like crosswords and an article
  • I wouldn’t want to abandon my mother tongue easily
  • I have a hunch that there may be readers who can’t understand English
  • It sometimes seems silly to write in English
  • Some topics are only interest to people from Estonia

Against:

  • English has wider audience
  • It gives me language practice
  • There is only one version of page to keep
  • Some topics on English webpages wouldn’t make sense so much anymore

It might have a point to redo only materials that doesn’t have point in English and have all else in English.

Also in new layout you don’t have blogroll, category and archives pages links. I think they’re accessible if you know a link but I might not add them back, since it gets complicated without a sidebar I don’t want to have.

If you have your view on the dilemma or missing blog functions, feel free to comment.
