    Once I again, I find myself between the horns of the Redmond dilemma. On the one hand, it would be great if we all moved beyond operating systems that were designed for 20-30 year old hardware (yes, I'm including Unix in this rant). On the other hand, most folks (including me) sometimes just want to use a computer like an appliance: no thought, no maintenance, no service packs. I call this mode of operation: just do it, bitch.

    What this has to do with Pudge's log entry is that my first response was going to be "fuck the prisoners of Bill." But then, on more sober reflection, I remembered that those IE users are probably in the majority of this site's readers. From an application UI perspective, Microsoft's stupid bug really is Pudge's problem now (thrice damn Redmond's black hearts!).

    Perhaps Uncle Bill will be kind enough to release a service pack to fix this? :-D

      Only if you can demonstrate that this is a security bug.

      Oh, wait. That was last month's issue. This month, you need to demonstrate that fixing this bug will prevent people from pirating digital audio and video from Disney.
