Bug reports for Windows?
From this Slashdot article about new Microsoft Windows screen shots comes this wonderful view. You have just got to love the “File Bug Report” icon there. How thoughtful.
I bet I think this website is about me.
In checking my webserver log files, I came across a referer from one of the search engines. Seems someone did a search on “Sean Conner” and I was curious to see what else is out there on “Sean Conner.”
Seems there's a Sean Conner from Indiana who is a school principal. Cool.
A high ranking Bible
Another thing I noticed is that the Electric King James Bible has a very high ranking at AltaVista. I must be doing something right to get that.
Cue the scanner
In browsing the web (under Windows. Darn it, IE is faster than Netscape, and it handles bookmarks much better) I came across a site that decodes the :Cue:Cat bar code scanner. Since I have the scanner hooked up to the Belkin OmniView, I decided to try it under Windows on that site.
It worked. Unlike last time.
I then logged into the Linux box from Windows, and tried it. Again it worked.
Then I tried from another Linux box in console mode. It worked again.
I think the problem is that X Windows is affecting or misinterpreting the keyboard scan codes, causing problems with the :Cue:Cat. But it's nice to know it works.
Just not under X Windows.
