 it's IE again
slightly off-topic, but just to show again that Internet Explorer is not
really the browser you should be using:

and this latest security hole in the endless list affects IE versions 6 through 10 (!)

So basically, if you are running windows, you are vulnerable to hackers! As it's impossible to remove IE, lol.

You most definitely are...

And in the continuing story, this morning I had to fix
a bug that only affects IE7 and IE8...

(even though there are very few users on the site who still
use those browsers, they know where to find me if something breaks [tongue] )

In new news, Microsoft may finally start calling their browser Internet Exploder:
