Bing Sucks

So, IE comes with this bing crap in its address bar. That used to be where google search was, so once in a while, my birdbrain skips a groove and searches with Bing.

Today, I was looking for where the concert is - I know it's in Wayne somewhere, and I know they're doing the Requiem. Other than that, I'm clueless (as usual). I type into Bing:
wayne pa mozart requiem april 2

My first hit is Lil Wayne, the second is some youtube performance of some Pa guy in the requiem.

I cut and paste into Google - or Topeka, as they were briefly called - and my first hit?

Mozart Requiem Good Friday for Haiti ReliefMozart Requiem Good Friday for Haiti Relief. Apr 2, 2010; 3pm; St. Mary's, Wayne. In response to the suffering and loss of the people of Haiti, ...

Google Rules. Bing Drools.

In other tech news, does anyone use live journal? I post my original fiction there, and it seems that LJ is now incompatible with Firefox. Is there a fix? Anybody know?

You're on LiveJournal? Cool! What's your username? I'm on Firefox and have no problems with LJ.

My name there is flightlesshag, IIRC. I think we're friends over there, but I get there so rarely...

I didn't have a problem uploading the same file from IE that kept giving me errors in firefox. I'm flummoxed.
