Interesting indeed. I have found on a number of occasions that access was denied because I refused to use IE. I too only use Mozilla, Netscape, Opera--anything but IE. Now recently I just noticed that at MS there was a link for people like us who don't use IE. That hadn't been there before. Really, when I upgraded recently, I suspected that I could not get upgrades because of the IE think. I downloaded IE6 and all worked well--I didn't look further. Maybe I should have. Then again, I use Linux for almost all of my work. There I use Galeon and Evolution in X, and I avoid MS like the plague. -- d On Wed, 2003-12-10 at 12:36, William B.
