So I called the NC Dept of Justice and eventually made it through to a person who helped me trouble shoot the problem. Everything was showing up fine for her, but even after a browser restart, nothing on my end. Suddenly, I got that all too familiar feeling...one I haven't felt in a long time. I fired up a Windows VM, and sure enough, everything works fine there. Strangely enough, it's not an IE versus Firefox thing...it even works well in Firefox, but ONLY on Windows.
This is a big deal for me. My entire household is Linux-based. My wife uses Ubuntu to do her daily computer chores and, though really not a techie, she gets along quite well. What if an offender had moved in across the street, and we didn't know because we don't run Windows? Shouldn't a state government use a technology that insures compatibility across ALL major platforms? Could the state be legally liable in cases like these? And regardless of liability, how can I force them to change?"
