My Checkboxes in IE have padding which I can't remove in CSS.
So if you're trying to get things to look consistent between Firefox, IE AND Safari, the last thing you need is IE adding padding which setting margin:0px and padding:0px doesn't seem to remove.
margin-top:9px; padding:0px; width:13px; height:13px;
I believe giving it a specific width gives it the hasLayout property in IE, which reminds it to stop being stupid and do things properly.
I might be totally wrong though, but at least it works.

While realistically you can never expect it to be ever as cheap as buying from the supermarket yourself, I am very impressed with the quality of the fruit and veg that's come in. The mushrooms don't look depressing, the vine tomatoes look really fresh and vibrant, the gourmet potatoes are cute, the carrots look good! It's like in ads, when you see fruit; its like that. And they DO also deliver to you, and if you tried to order that amount of fruit and veg online through something like foodtown online, the delivery charge is pretty hefty.
Also, they seem to like throwing in random things to spice things up. This week, I got choko.
What the hell is that?
I don't know! It looks kind of like a bittergourd to me, on the outside. Wiki says: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chayote
There's also a recipe to try; though it does need lemon which didn't come in the box.
Because I live in an apartment, I requested them to give me a call to pass the foodbox to me directly, and they did just that - very polite, and yeah.
The final proof though, is in the eating - I had a mandarin and it was really delicious, and I guess we'll see how a cooked meal with foodbox veg turns out! :)

Somewhere along the line, I want this though. Seems pretty decent!
But for now, i've moved the laptop to use the HD tv as a monitor, and we've got a wireless mouse and keyboard - it's pretty awesome! I'm gonna try some gaming on it :P
The only downside to this is that it'll be harder to share the TV and the PC. Although really, could just move the laptop away again by unplugging it so its not such a big deal.
Still though, why all three computers dying on me at the same time? Don't need the stressss

So I did. It's not bad, although I think the UI takes a bit of getting used to. I don't have much except for first impressions of it, that and the fact that it allowed me to recover all my documents and stuff (whereas Vista didnt seem to want to install over itself)
It also has a new calculator program (yeah, not just the XP one with Aero borders!)
