Irony: The portal for letting student loans know you’re poor requires an up-to-date computer

I’m trying to do my yearly renewal where I let the student loans people know that I can't afford to pay the things. My computer is 11 years old. It only runs really old versions of browsers. Only one browser can connect to (the others bring up security errors). Only one will connect to the They are two different browsers. The site requires you to log into the IRS page directly from the student loans page. When I copy the long IRS URL into the browser that does open IRS pages, it says I am only allowed to access that page directly from Argh!

I got a bunch of Swagbucks from TaskRabbit without spending money

I went to the TaskRabbit website to hire a bunny to do a home repair I didn’t have the tools for. I was using my computer at the time, so the browser bar popped up to activate Swagbucks. The rabbit I selected didn’t have the right tools either and canceled the task. I selected another rabbit whose profile also listed them as doing such things, and they also canceled saying they don’t have the tools. The rest of the available bunnies were all very expensive, so I ended up buying some tools.

A few days later I see that I was awarded 1000 Swagbucks for each canceled rabbit. Um, OK! That nearly pays for my tools.
