One of my referrals today was a Google search. For the phrase fuck lotus notes.

Well, hits. They're all good!

Moving on Uncle Phil has been dropping by. He wanted to let me know that my site looks weird in Internet Explorer version 5.00. Now that is one browser I definitely am not going to be testing or fixing for! Nor will I look at NN4… ;-)


  1. Well, I'm just about to solve that one.

  3. Hi ben , i totally agree with you for browser version, but some customer have oldies, and this pc is an pure ghost that i use for test, on the same kvm switch. I need to reinstall bginfo on each machine. and for the f…., we can find some jewel …. ph koenig#
  4. No, I get your point ph, I just can't be bothered to find and install IE 5.0!

    As far as browser testing and compatibility goes, there has to be a cut-off point, and for me that's it. Even in this go-slow corporate world there's no excuse for a company's machines to still be running IE 5.00!

  5. FYI: has most browser versions at -> Using VMWare the virtual PC software makes browser testing a lot easier. I just create a virtual PC for each browser and test them individually. John Marshall#
