(currently 05/08/2018) my Minecraft realm is getting griefed like crazy, I’m still trying to track down who it is.
A poem I wrote about 12 years ago, as I had to use IE 8 for my then job:
If there's one thing on this Earth,
Which I really fucking Hate
It's when I'm forced to use
Internet explorer 8.
It's so stunningly, shitasticlly awful,
I want to punch it in the face,
and whenever I turn it on,
I lose faith in the human race.
Why is this buggy piece of shit,
such a fucking turd?
Why won't it remember,
my fucking passwords?
It crashes every five minutes
I cannot do any work,
If this shit screws up again,
I will fucking go berserk
I will burn down it's house,
in its' eyes, empty a can of mace,
then rip out it's intestines and hang them like Christmas decorations
all over the fucking place
I will throw it out of a moving car,
and shoot it in the head,
and break it's kneecaps with a baseball bat,
Over and over until it's fucking dead
and fuck Bill Gates
and fuck everyone in the entire world
who uses Internet Explorer 8.
I am recieving this error while I am trying to pull data from a website. Does anyone know if it is possible to update which internet explorer my excel is using. the IE on my computer is IE11 and I tried to update my default browser on my computer to chrome and that hasn't worked either. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Edit: Properly not Property in the title
About a year ago my aunt called me saying she bought IE 8 and it completely destroyed her computer. She couldn't get to the desktop. She couldn't see the mouse. My questions like what do you see? were answered with just "desktop wallpaper. Nothing else. I move the mouse and nothing shows up.
Me: I don't understand. Are you sure you bought Internet Explorer? Aunt: Yes. I have the receipt right here. Internet Explorer 8. ~$49 (or whatever number she rattled off)
Me: 1. IE is free. 2. You are on Windows 7, so you should be running IE 10 already. IE 8 is a downgrade. Who did you buy this from? Aunt: I bought it from Microsoft's site. They said IE 8 was more stable and faster than IE 10.
I quickly scanned my memory for the different browsers wondering which one she bought. Opera hasn't charged money for over a decade. Maybe Avant browser is charging now? Hell, maybe she bought Avast and she's confusing the browser plugin for the whole scanning package. Regardless, I couldn't figure out which browser would wreck her computer.
So I head to her house. She says the PC is in the office turned off and unplugged.
I plug it in and turn it on and low and behold, it's a Windows 8 main wallpaper screen. She didn't know you see wallpaper before anything else.
Apparently She bought the windows 8 upgrade, And never once during the upgrade did she notice it was the OS, not Internet Explorer being upgraded.
