Food fight: Burger King franchisees sue chain Dollar double cheeseburger
leads to food fight between Burger King, franchisees

* By Ashley M. Heher, AP Retail Writer * On 8:01 pm EST, Thursday
November 12, 2009


CHICAGO (AP) -- Burger King franchisees sued the hamburger company this
week over its $1 double cheeseburger promotion, saying they're losing
money on the deal and the company can't set maximum menu prices.


The National Franchise Association, a group that represents more than 80
percent of Burger King's U.S. franchise owners, said the $1 promotion
forces restaurant owners to sell the quarter-pound burger with at least a
10-cent loss.

While costs vary by location, the $1 double cheeseburger typically costs
franchisees at least $1.10, said Dan Fitzpatrick, a Burger King franchisee
from South Bend, Ind. who is a spokesman for the association. That
includes about 55 cents for the cost of the meat, bun, cheese and
toppings. The remainder typically covers expenses such as rent, royalties
and worker wages.

Default (OT) Another computer problem

This one comes at me from Internet Explorer and the new Yahoo! Home Page.

The Navigation Pane on the left side of the screen contain links that PISS
ME OFF TO NO END! They open stuff by merely flying over them, and I HATE
THAT. I don't want ANYTHING __EVER__ to open just because the mouse happens
to fly over, and I especially don't want it to take up the entire screen! I
don't dislike the links, per se, I only dislike that it takes more effort to
ignore the link than to follow it. I tend to use my mouse to scroll a page,
and the cursor moves around alot. If it happens to fly over one of these
links then the onscreen experience is disrupted, I have to find a place
where I can click out, then hope that does not invoke a new disruption, then
scroll back to where I was before I was disrupted and hope that I'm not
disrupted yet again. Then I scroll some more and start the whole disruption
crap all over again.

Whoever at Yahoo! that thought this would be an improvement should be
executed at dawn on PPV, right after Maj. Hasan. Maybe before Hasan, an
opening act so to speak.

Are these called Accelerators? I went into Manage Add-ons and found these
accelerators and disabled them, I thought. (the stuff still opens on a fly
over) Yahoo! is proud that they've discovered an entirely new way to piss me
off.

I used to post on this board through a site that was like that. I
agree. TOTALLY ANNOYING. Usa today is littering their site with more
and more of those now too. There was one local one in pa that actually
had a guy singing in the ad when you went near it with a cursor. I
started doing a remix with his ad..in a dj kinda way..

I know that when you sign out of yahoo mail, it dumps the yahoo home page on
your screen. Is that the only time you land on that home page, or are there
other times, and if so, why?

Those are irritating. I usually close the page or back page and do it
again, anything to let them know their add cost them a reader. USA
Today? I have just about quit going there because of all the adds, CNET
also. I'm wondering how Netflex adds get through Firefox pop up
blocker?

In it's simplest iteration, that's an HTML <on mouse-over> command, but
they are probably using Java. You could disable Java, but then any Java
based application would not work...

I don't use Yahoo but have a suggestion.........

Ctrl Panel/ Add Remove..........(LMAO)

Most of the crap I have ever dealt with working on lagging machines is
these browser hijackers that people insist on installing or don't
*watch* what they are installing & *uncheck* the sneaky
options.......;0)
