Be interesting to know if they delete this just to go back -
would it subtract the number of posts mentioned.

Hm, now seems like a good time to use one of my pointless-but-funny PhotoShops...

If you see a red X, then you're not using FireFox, but using IE6 or below! Congradulations on your choice to not use an open source web browser, but to use Officially Licensed software, & using End-User Agreements & stuff!:p

I don't want to impose my personal opinions on you but...

Use Firefox or I shall come round to your home and annoy you mildly! Be afraid!

We should start singing Aud Lange Syne. BTW Atari, I saw the link to your site on the wikipedia article Retrocomputing. Such shameless self advertising! ;)

Nope, IE6 doesn't run in DOS nor CP/M - Still Red [X] can't be
much of a website if it doesn't work.

Congratulats if you've managed to make your site work with one
unknown Web Browser.

What do you know, it worked! :p (the self-advertisement)

I need an animation of myself doing the robot for this one:

Geese, Atari. You remind me of a guy I used to know, but he's twice your age by now.

So, 25,000+ posts.. only 475,000 more to go before VCF becomes a Big Board. :-)

Firefox sucks.
It's like an ugly little lost puppy dog, following in the footsteps of the ultimate browser, Opera.

The only reason you're using it is because Internet Explorer makes it look good.

Oh come on. You know Opera is the awesome, most Firefox extensions only add functionality that's built in to Opera (the rest eat memory and crash it, and Opera's the fastest graphical browser on all platforms, Windows or not.

Opera is also more compliant with HTML and CSS standards. Take the acid2 test!

Sorry for derailing the thread, guys - I would like to point out that we recently got our two-thousandth member...now who might that be?

Having spawned yet another pointless thread, totally devoid of content, I'm closing the thread as having out-lived it's usefulness.
