I don't think they want to help me

network management filter: I'm working for a local government education department. My team is meant to be maintaining/improving several large websites. The IT support people refuse to install a web browser that isn't IE 6, citing network security as the reason.... are their fears reasonable? [more inside]

Help me solve a Domain Browsing issue

I am on a VLAN and cannot browse the domain. I can connect to servers e.g. //server1/ and see the dives etc. If I am on the same VLAN as the server - I can browse and see everything. Is there perhaps a broadcast or something that the Cisco router is not allowing through? Tried ip forward-protocol udp netbios-ns Any ideas? Thanks

How do I get Sibelius Scorch to play more than one page of sheet music?

I've downloaded the Sibelius Scorch sheet music plugin for both Firefox and IE. When I purchase Scorch sheet music, Scorch only plays the first page, even though I've purchased the entire song. The back/forward page buttons are grayed out. I've downloaded several songs from different Web sites, and I always get the same result. This happens with both browsers. Any ideas?

Non-irritating password remembrance?

I want my browser to remember my password for a couple of sites, but it must assume that I don't want most of my passwords remembered. I hate browser popups that ask "Remember this password?" What's a good solution? I use Firefox on Windows.

How do I schedule web screenshots from a Linux box?

I want to take a screenshot of a particular web-page every 15 minutes from a Linux server (no running X server). Ideally, I would like a command-line application, but a free or very cheap and reliable web service might work for me. What are my options?

Offline Browser programs

Is there a program that will download websites that include dynamic table functionality? For example, if a website has statistical information on all 50 states (e.g., most government websites) and, by inputting the names of, say 3 states (plus vehicle data) you get a screen that compares car insurance rates in those states for the car in question. My goal is to be able to download such a site and browse it offline in instances where I can't connect to the web.

Gullible is not in the dictionary

I'm using FireFox 1.07 for Windows XP. Previously, when I typed "dict [word]" into the address bar, FireFox would take me to the dictionary.com definition for [word]. Now typing in the same command just takes me to the first result of a Google search for "dict [word]," the same as if I typed anything into the address bar. Recently all my Firefox bookmarks disappeared as well. I haven't updated Firefox or changed anything that I know of. What happened, and how do I restore the old functionality?

Need help/advice finding cached webpage.

During the course of Hurricane Katrina, I updated a single entry at LiveJournal numerous times with stories of New Orleanians who rode out the hurricane. It was linked to both from a few comments in MetaFilter and also from BoingBoing and other sites. Unfortunately, a LJ bug truncated the first few entries of the post, and I need to find someone out there with a cached copy of my entry at http://insomnia.livejournal.com/599039.html ... can't find it on google or archive.org. Anyone out there have a cache of this, or have any novel ideas on how to find such a cached entry?

hotmail is leaving me out in the cold

When I try to log into hotmail, I get this error: "The operation timed out when attempting to contact..." This has been going on for a week. Yet my husband can get into his hotmail account just fine. I've tried logging in using Firefox and IE, but I get the error in both browsers. I've tried on my desktop and my laptop. Neither works. My husband can get into his hotmail using any browser and any PC. What gives? Does hotmail have a vendetta against me?
