LOL!!!@ Cool dark weather here in the studio...it's quite the juxtaposition. Hey PB I need some help. I pressed a button on the keyboard and now I can't switch between tabs (Can't see them at the top of the screen) What do I do?

Firefox, or other browser? Maybe try right clicking about and see if there is some option? Or, there may be multiple Firefoxes in the thingy at the bottom of the window. I'd give a ding, but our phone is currently occupied... Never press buttons. Especially red ones. ;^)

Fanfare Ciocarlia is coming to the Jazz Festival!!!!!! I believe their first time in Ottawa. They are phenomenal live!

Indeed! I will be there for sure. I saw them at the Montreal International Jazz Festival about 15 years ago before they hit the big time. I hadn't as yet heard of them but checked them out based on the description...they were set up on a free stage and there were maybe 200 people watching and listening. They blew everyone away with their vituosity and energy.

Hello Manmohan (and everyone else on the chat). Just tuned in. Yes, pushing buttons can lead to all kinds of weird things happening on the computer--glad it's fixed.
