Minor Irritants

Okay, I must stop niggling over movie goofs at IMDb. Way too much time-suck involved. I really don't have time to explain over and over about stupid stuff like how Flicka in the book is a sorrel, not a freakin' palomino, but there you are.

Then again, some little niggling things just must be addressed. Here are three:

1) Stop, for love of Pete, saying and writing "can't help but." Follow "can't help" with a participle. I can't help wanting to smack people who don't.

2) Victoria has ONE secret. One. Her secret is not plural. See here.

3) The mistress of Tara's name is spelled with two "t's": Scarlett O'Hara.

Okay, This Is Annoying

Is it just me who finds the whole "upgrade to the newest newest version of all your software RIGHT NOW" urgency of Internet communications just a bit obnoxious? Hello, like some of us can't afford to buy new computers, operating systems, software, etc. the second the new version comes out?

Can you guess that I can't download a file I really need because in the 'net world, I'm practically a Luddite with my upgrades? Grrr.
