For some real fun visit www.netbricks.com with a non-IE browser. The
marketing guy there had no clue his site was so unfriendly. He has
no quick fix options like the Flash story above.
BEWARE. The site may lock up your browser. Make sure you have an
xterm open so that you can kill your browser by pid. You can always
log out of your desktop to clear too.
Moving forward in pushing back the envelope of the corporate paradigm.
