I reinstalled firefox and tried to get all my old addons back. Some were not compatible with the new FF so i looked for alternatives, and one of them had that fucking BABYLON SHIT!
It wrapped itself onto all my browsers and corrupted all my search settings and homepages, THE SICK MOTHAFUCKERS!
I solved it, since it hid itself under a different name (not babylon), could only be disabled and not removed from the extensions once installed so I had to look for its folder in the system manually.
Kept me up until 9 AM just trying to solve it, tearing my hair out (promise!), crying (true story!) and wanting to throw my laptop.
I did it finally. But my day off after a hectic week from work was FUCKING RUINED. I SHOULD SHOOT THE FUCKING DEVELOPERS OF THIS BABYLON SEARCH ENGINE.
I tried to research what they had to say about the whole thing, and I found this:

so I will now fish.Quote:
In other news...
Background: my life-long dream is to run a spa-like bed and breakfast that may later morph into an even more complicated project such as cafe/artisan shop etc. etc.
Situation: circa 2011 My parents finally said after purchasing a new lot that they want to build their retirement home. Single-story, ramps, small, for old fogeys.
it is now nearing the end of 2012. and my parents nearing retirement said "make the design NOW." 2-STORY, many rooms, to convert it into a bed-and-breakfast since you kids are all away and will have families of your own, you won't be living here" etc etc.
I lit up and worked on the project like a woman (yes, woman) possessed. refer to Background. And I presented it to them and they said "wow it's big, I'm suddenly chickening out because maybe it's too big of a project and I (mother) can't do this by myself... you kids can't possibly help me with this because you're all away."
note: I have not expressed to either parent my DESIRE and MOTIVE of taking hold of that frigging business- LIKE GIVE IT TO ME! kinda thing.
and our conversation broke off because I was heading for work.
DILEMMA: I don't know how to tell my parents my intention. That is all. It just requires so much vulnerability to tell them an ambition like that... or not?
You miss 100% of all the shots you dont take.
Thats my advice.
Or try and sit down and write the pro's and con's on a piece of paper as dispassionately as you can. Then give that list a look.
give them the "why do you think i won't care for you or your interests when you're old" line.
hay. I'd raise a cup to that, Imp. It's a shot I'll miss if I don't do anything. And it's such a rare opportunity that our goals would coincide like this that I should really grab it. So... I don't have a problem about that.
Now I'm half-wracking my brains to... find the right words- or how to deliver it (text? email? call? -if I call I'd need to wait on my day off this weekend because erm, I'm only awake in the afternoons where I go straight to work. ) combination of both? email first and see how it goes... is how i'm feeling, ayiiiiiiiiii
Tell them how it's gonna benefit them and you, and how much you're willing to go for it all the way. At old age, parents tend to want to leave something behind to their kids, and if you can at least tell them it's important to you, they'll respond.
There's nothing to lose, as long as you accept whatever they decide wholeheartedly. You can still try it later in life without their help if you have to.
Reminds me how families are all different. Everything my parents and I ever talk about are goals (and school life when it applied), so that would be an easy thing for me to introduce. We never talked barkadas, hobbies, or lovelife, though (all three of us kids). Literally never.
Heck us three don't even talk about that to each other . I wouldn't recognize my brothers' best friends and GF if they were right in front of me, and they wouldn't recognize mine .
yeah, our relationship with my parents are somewhat... detached, maybe. We grew close to them as we kids got older and became more adult and faced a little bit of the fears (lol). But back then we were scared of our parents in a way because, in a perfect description, my mom was a "Tiger Mother"- so talking to her about goals is kind of... awkward... when she set the standards high.
