These skinny keys to intricate locks

We are having it hot, today the forecast promises 28 °C, and it is also rather humid, thanks to rain we had during the night. Here are four photographs taken during the last few days, after returning from travel.

I have now installed OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 on two different Macs, and both are working fine. There were some things to look into, such as Parental Controls where the daughters' settings changed in the upgrade and I had to go through them. But overall this has been the easiest major OS upgrade I have ever done.

A week or so ago I switched from Firefox to Chrome. I'm still learning to use Chrome properly, and even though Chrome isn't that different from Firefox there are some details which differ.

I'm not sure whether it was the OS upgrade or is it a Chrome thing, but sometimes I need to reload web pages because they are not quite right, it seems that some part of the content is not always read the first time. I suspect Chrome has a bug with certain web pages.

"Tangle" is gorgeous Juha.

The problems you are describing with Chrome are ones I've had for awhile now (I use Windows 7). It's becoming so bad that I find myself using it less and less. Just last week I went to use Google Search on Chrome and it gave me a warning to say that there was some unsafe content and did I really want to load the page. On the main Google page!? Weird.

@Cedric: Well, I guess there is no other way than to go back to Firefox, which has its problems but is more reliable in showing web pages. What I don't like about Firefox is the slowness and the software updates which are all too frequent.
