Fun with processes

OkCupid pwned my browser. I had to close the thing. (It evidently does not play well with at least my instance of Firefox.) Then I learned that it would not start again when I did clicky clicky. (See how my technical vocabulary suffers?) Like, nothing. Then I wound up thinking I would reboot, but when I started a conversation, not remembering that I was going to shut down, I said "Bah!" and went into my task mangler and looked at my processes. So why was firefox.exe still at the top of the list, beeyatch? I shut that down, and all its child processes too. (Does it ever disturb anyone that I am a witch and my ex-girlfriend was called my Pretty? But she does not have a dog.) Surprise surprise, firefox started back up.

I am not happy with the site, because their IM thing, if not disabled, is an even bigger resource-suck than Gmail's auto-refresh. This was worse than normal.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
