if someone could help me with this, i will love you forever. see, i'm addicted to text twist and too cheap to buy it, so i play on yahoo and whatnot. recently, my stupid laptop won't allow me to play ANY games online anymore. we're talking EVERYTHING from arcade games to crossword puzzles, as soon as the game window opens, every internet window closes immediately. this just started happening all of a sudden...and i'm getting angry. its an IBM thinkpad laptop, i've tried both internet explorer and firefox, and i couldnt even tell you what connection we have, being that i dont pay the bill (so life ain't so bad) nothing else on the computer goes snafu, there's no noises, it just simply closes all internet applications and laughs sliently at my general misfortune. please someone tell me what i need to do to amuse myself all day again!
