IE : Incredible & Excellent

I generally go home at 4 on a Friday and unfortunately don't get to check this site again until Monday morning so if you changed my profile tonight I probably wouldn't know until Monday!

Wait a second... I'm just encouraging the idea now Shock

Fine, I'll have a think about a replacement picture over the weekend. Perhaps Bill Gates smiling, or the corporate Microsoft logo Cool

Yeah right, thanks for that, it has really benefited mankind that one.

Your right though it was the cop out by the courts that let M$ get away with that bundling nonsense, and I thought the idea was that M$ would get broken up in order to neutralize it's monopoly.

Something I do on another

Something I do on another forum I administer, is to have a bespoke 'ranking' graphic of three steaming turds, relating to the rank of 'Ploppy Head'. If anyone upsets me I just change their rank for a few days }:)

The way I read it, it just

The way I read it, it just looked like Microsoft could do no evil. I guess the money they put in to lawyers was sufficient enough to find an excuse for everything. It made a fascinating read though, and really quite angers me how Microsoft barely changed anything AT ALL at the end of it.

They probably don't make browsers conform to web standards because w3c isn't part of them. They'll probably come up with their own standards and in 5 or so years, the other browsers will give up and just start designing to 'Microsoft Web Standards'.

Problem with 'Standards' is

Problem with 'Standards' is that they are agreed on by committee of which MS are a part, problem is they agree and then go off and don't implement them, also we mustn't forget that in some respects MS probably still consider that they are best at setting them after all a lot of what we know and love came from browsers such as IE hover anchor effects.

Encourage Learning

Page 53 I believe of the Bournemouth University Undergraduate prospectus! That image is in the career departments of schools and colleges throughout the country. Not to mention the bedrooms of many 17/18 year olds contemplating higher education!

Didn't need to study that,

Didn't need to study that, it comes naturally. Seriously, I can almost feel a camera looking at me. If I'm in a club and someone far off in the background someone is taking a picture of their mate, when the pics come out they'll see me in the shadows striking a pose.

I suppose it just comes naturally when one is as gorgeous as I am.

Huh in my not so far off clubbing days I had to stop them as it got boring being photographed all the time, but then I was the coolest thing imaginable with a scowl unrivalled.
