It probably comes as no surprise, but researchers have found that most of us would gladly put on a mask and fight do-gooders if given super powers. From the article: "But power also acts like strong cologne that affects both the wearer and those within smelling distance, Galinsky noted. The person gains an enhanced sense of their importance, and other people may regard them with greater respect as well as extend leniency toward their actions. That combination makes for an easy slide into corruption."
Maybe screen readers could add something to the user agent string to allow servers to detect the presence of one and modify the page to better suit them.
Seems to be more of a problem with the web application and less of ASP.NET. I mean, sure you can get the encryption key to the cookies, but seriously who puts information like a bank balance or a social security number in a cookie anyway? You should have that stored server-side and only use a session id.
Avast? Yes I have that, but I turned on the Silent/Gaming mode just to get it to leave me alone. Anti-Virus Vendors: Don't bother me unless there is a problem. I'm sure there is a UI design consideration that says not to bother the user unless they really need to know about the change.
An anonymous reader writes "A computer science student at University College London put together FitFinder as a bit of a joke — it's been described as a cross between Twitter and personal ads, and it rapidly became very popular. The university took exception to this and started by blocking the site from being accessed on campus. Not content with this, a few weeks later it fined the student £300 and had him take the site down completely. Currently, the site is still offline, although there is a petition with several thousand signatures requesting its return. In the meantime, a site called PhitFinder has appeared, claiming to have no link to the original."
That may work for more advanced users, but most new users aren't going to be able to figure it out.
If that were to happen, I'd finally be able to get a low UID!
I just figure the more letters it has in it, the better it is.
My university installs Kaspersky on all the laptops they give out to students, and it makes all the laptops horribly slow.
Another vote for logmein.com. I use it and it really is quite good.
Facebook would never work on Lynx.
I just use a really long extension cord.
As I am a developer, I'm interested to hear just what makes the mac better for development.
$15 for a movie ticket? Where are you going? It only costs $7.50 for me.
You haven't used Windows 7 yet have you?
