Hey there. I’m Josh, a SydneyCanberra-based maker of Internets. I don’t update this very often.


IE7 versus Slashdotters

So it’s been delayed in Japan because of unspecified issues (probably to do with localisation) and Slashdot comments are an absolute moron-fest. There are way too many people in there caught completely by surprise by this thing, including one who ironically says “Thanks Redmond” after IE7 broke their business’ online payment system.

Why not just wear a t-shirt saying “I’m an ignoramus”?

Clearly, your business depends on it, clearly, it’s coming soon, clearly… you did nothing. Oh, yeah, that’s Redmond’s fault.

I’m really appreciating a lot that Microsoft are doing of late, so, without wanting to sound like too much of a fanboy, let me just remark that this person had it coming and any issues faced are entirely their own problem and responsibility. Moron.
