Hmmm… very interesting. Here are my stats as of, well, now. Internet Explorer 6.0 – 39% Gecko browsers – 22% Internet Explorer 5.x (Win & Mac) – 19% Crawlers/Search Engines – 12% Netscape 4.x – 3% Safari – 3% Opera 7.x – 2% Gecko browsers are gaining on IE 6.0 here at Skyzyx.com. It’s good […]
First, read Darice’s post, then come back and finish this post. I agree and disagree — both concurrently. On one hand, I see people going overboard about making sure that absolutely everything is flawless code, or else they freak out. On the other hand, I see people who intentionally invalidate their code to try to […]
Apparently, RealNetworks has reverse-engineered Apple’s FairPlay software. FairPlay is the name of Apple’s DRM (digital rights management) software. RealNetworks has been trying to get Apple to license their FairPlay software so that Real can sell iPod-ready music files from their online music store. Apple has consistently denied their requests.

Did you try to use the awesome Magpie RSS, and just couldn’t get it to work like you wanted? Personally, I’m still fairly new to PHP, but I have a solid understanding […]
After buying my PowerBook G4 last month, I’ve been wanting to add another 512 MB stick of RAM to it to bring the total up to 1 GB. I compared Apple’s prices to other manufacturer’s and found that the best deal was from Crucial.com. I’ve ordered memory from Crucial several times and have always found […]
