Oh my god... it's not full of stars...
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I switched to DigiCert a few months ago and they are much more "rapid" than rapidssl was ever for us.
Our original account with Rapid was under one company name. We subsequently changed the holding company's name on a later request and apparently our account was flagged for manual validation 100% of the time. Each time we renewed it would take 4 or 5 days of faxing forms, confirmations, phone calls from hell, etc.
The nice thing was, at the time, they were one of the few SSL providers to allow unlimited re-issuance. Digicert does too, and has even better prices AFAIK.
(Note: I don't work for them or have any financial interest in them)
Did you actually use MS's implementation of web fonts? They made some proprietary font for no reason at all. They are trying to open it as a W3C standard now but that will hopefully fail completely. We already have enough font standards without introducing yet another format.
Uh, 3.1 has web fonts.
The community and fleet of developers available to PHP is far and away the more vulnerable than register_globals could ever be.
Modern code bases, books, and examples are STILL being written using string concatenation to build SQL! These examples are teaching these dated, insecure methods to novices, thus guaranteeing these horrible practices will propagate for a long, long time.
Mildly toxic? Just edit Wikipedia.
I run a single windows server. I hate that an IIS update requires me to reboot the machine. Why can't I just restart IIS?! The only consistent update that never requires a reboot is the smart filters update. Very annoying.

"We believe it will take two years at most for China to overtake the US," an official at the China Internet Network Information Center told state media. China had 137m internet users by the end of 2006, an increase of 23% from the year before, the centre reported. This figure means that more than 10% of the population is now online."
