    I open my start page.

    And, since I use firefox, I have around 10 start pages... So this poll really needs to be multi-choice

    Google is my homepage, but I do four things upon logging in. Open outlook (run my emails through there), sign into MSN messenger, load up the .org and then open fbook.

    That order because of loading times really

    Back when I was in school, during class i would have my work, the .org and engadget open.

    Thunderbird opens with windows so it's email by default, but once I get firefox up and running it's straight to the .org

    Usually my email. I do business first, then pleasure.
    Hammer, anvil, forge and fire, chase away The Hoofed Liar. Roof and doorway, block and beam, chase The Trickster from our dreams.
    Vigilance is our shield, that protects us from our squalid past. Knowledge is our weapon, with which we carve a path to an enlightened future.

    I dont use a homepage

    I usually go for sports sites first and read the headlines of the morning newspapers

    The first thing that pops up on my browser is google. The first thing I do after my PC has turned on is open up firefox. The first thing I do after I get back home from school is turn my PC on.

    Ask me what's the last thing I do before I disconnect. Hint: it's not praying.

    ESPN
    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    Google personal home page, which lets me scan email, three news sites (two normal, one geeky), weather, calendar, and a neat little box that tells me everything about my current TCP/IP situation. Then on to answering emails.
