Technical difficulties

I know that at the moment, the site doesn't completely appear when using Internet Explorer (IE) as your browser. It does in Mozilla, however. I'll try to fix things for IE users tonight; but in the meantime, what better time to try out Firefox? It will literally cost you absolutely nothing to try.

UPDATE (April 27th): Things should appear okay in IE now--at least they do for me. I'd rather not say what the problem was, but let's just say that Firefox can compensate even for operator errors. Anyway--as we were.

Was wondering about that; unfortunately my company forces the unhealthy usage of IE... guess I can just read from home.

I'm not sure what IE is, but it looks great on my Firefox browser. (I especially like the new font.)

I've been trying to read the deposition for days...but can't get to the question and answer phase. Please hurry! ;-)

I have both. I figured it was an Explorer problem. My laptop installed an auto update a few days ago and "poof" I couldn't read stuff.

Good luck.

See, I don't have anything against Microsoft per se; not, at least, anything that I shouldn't simultaneously have against Google. My basic view is that as long as a company continues to produce good programmes that work, then their popularity and success is deserved. However, IE is such an incredibly, astonishingly, and mind-bogglingly, not to mention infuriatingly bad browser, that I fail to understand why anyone continues to use it. I have been designing a website for an upcoming conference, for instance, which displays quite nicely in Firefox, but not in IE, so I've had to compromise to get them both to display sort-of what I wanted. And all I wanted was a position:fixed tag line in the bottom right corner; is that too much to ask? Apparently, though, IE doesn't support the position:fixed attribute in CSS2, just as it is flagrantly non-standards-compliant on all sorts of other fronts, primarily to do with CSS2 and Unicode. Why would we want to display non-standard characters, after all? I mean, the whole world speaks English, right? Perhaps that's why every letter I receive from some company or other automatically replaces the á in my name with a ?, an !, or, my favourite, an "=Æ!".

Not that I'm bitter or anything.

Oh no--not at all.

And for those who care, I'm waiting to hear from the Blogger gods. So, no blog for IE today.

Update #2: Still waiting for Blogge-dot.

What is this IE you folks keep talking about?

R. Sherman said...

Winston, it's "Internet Explorer" by Microsoft.

Sucks in extremis.

Cheers.

P.S. John, we need a "BM" fix.

Wait. That sounded bad.
