When was the last time you scanned your PC for malware or a virus? Seriously YOUR computer has issues.
Gosh, sonny, never. How can you accuse me of being all, el33t (which I had to look up) and of simultaneously not understanding my own system?
We don't tend to worry about how the site looks in an esoteric, ultra minority, uber el33t off the wall OS or browser config.
I think you are a little mislead here somehow. If you are concerned about reaching the whole world, then you might be interested in checking out newer
Linux based distros like Bodhi Linux which runs on legacy hardware.
Bodhi is #12. Simple as pie to install.
More of the world is going to be looking at the site with stuff like that as money becomes more scarce and people seek out free ways to get their old
and getting-older hardware running. I am not aware of another software package that allows one to revive a 2002 Win tablet, WACOM, wireless and all.
There are a lot of tablets out there. Midori comes stock; it's just a simplified firefox.
Sorry man but that's just reality, I truly don't mean to be a prick, but when everyone else can see things presented normally and only you can't, it's
time to consider what's more important to you and it might be a GOOD IDEA to STOP accusing our tech team of screwing up your experience.
I didn't accuse your tech team. I brought in to question the decision to make that space available for advertising.
You aren't being a prick.
Also, I wanted to add that I doubt very much that anyone is escaping the advertising around here by any means that satisfies T%C. I have yet to get a
direct answer on the magical configuration that would have stopped that ad space bleeding over.
And no one has even batted an eye at the blue hyperlinks and the mouse-mine gauntlet.
It's reminiscent of someone with a Sony Beta-Max bitching about not being able to watch VHS.
Being as we likely came up at the same time that Beta was actually in use, this is really funny.
But I fail to understand what you are analogizing. My hardware?
I was trying to express in that post that you found to be all, like, el33t, that your site looks better and handled better on a legacy machine with
512 running open source software and a full version of firefox than it does on a modern laptop running Win7 with 6gigs of RAM, your recommended
Chrome, and a fast processor.
So in this case, my Beta delivered a better experience.
So here I am on a fresh install of WinXP. I went straight to Chrome after all necessary updates and a pre-scan with malwarebytes
So far so good.
I'll let you know how it goes.
Thanks for taking the time to post.
