ohh, yeah, I'm running windows messenger, not MSN messenger, and I don't really have an option to do that here at work. We are running messenger on our exchange, and I don't think the MSN client has that option.
I am on my work computer and I need to have Windows messenger installed for our in office communcations. I also need to be able to open links from messenger in IE for certain oracle applications we use.
This being said, I'm a firefox user, and I don't want to set IE to default browser, but...
19 inch LCD's are hard to get in resolutions higher then 1280x1024, which is aweful for a 19 inch screen. I wouldn't suggest getting a 17 inch either if you don't want to kill yourself. I use a 19 inch at work and only have 17 inch at home, and it now feels like a 15 inch, it sucks.
get a new router... seriously, not trying to be a jerk. I relatively cheap router (I know DLINK does it) can use keywords. You could block porn keywords and anything with say "teen" in the url would not be allowed to access.
