The Dog Ate My EntreCard

So I've been marveling for a couple days about how my blogosphere buddies Michigan Rafter and Mariuca, to name a pair, find the time to "drop" 300 EntreCards per day. My profile at EntreCard says I have a hint of addiction with only 100 or so drops per day...I just can't find the time, and have blamed this on my slow-loading intermittent Comcastic Internet service.

Anyway, just as I was ready to take on the Red Hot Drops' challenge of 300 drops per day, tonight there's been an outage at EntreCard, and the poor tech guy in charge despairs, "We're currently performing some database maintenance to resolve performance issues, we anticipate this will complete by 11PM Boston time. Update: we're running a little late, estimated 20, no 40 minutes. Update 2: sorry everyone, I'm still waiting for a database operation to complete, it is, unfortunately, not something that can be cancelled while it's running. The how-badly-was-I-wrong-counter is now at:1hr51minutes, level of shame: excruciating."

Here's the question of the day for me. How can we highlight a few links at a time and open them in separate tabs using one command with Internet Explorer? That would make our lives so much easier! My right click finger is aching! :-)

If you find out please let me know. Between making friends on SS and Opening links on Entrecard my day is shot. How about you?

Thanks,
Shelly M.

Join the NEW Entrcard RingSurf
I don't know why know one else thought of this sooner... I'm glad I did. I think this will be the best way to drop Ecards. Check it out and Join the RingSurf! You wont get the full effect because I just created the RingSurf so I am the only site on it so far, but you will get the idea and the full brilliance of it, LOL.
A few simple rules to keep it simple for us all: Must have widget near the top of your web page. I don't want to have to scroll all the way to the bottom to find it. Also your page must load quickly.

LOL! Thanks for the linky love Roxy. I just finished my 300 drops for both blogs woo hoo! Feels great once you're nearing that 300th mark, tired but elated! I'm trying to see how long I can keep this 300 daily drops going.. so far it's been like 4 days in a row! ;)
