Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Blogger.com Hacked

I suppose it should come as no surprise that blogger.com was hacked today.

Most interesting, I thought, was the relatively warm praise this piece had for the security of Movable Type compared to blogger.com. Those of you who have been reading these pages know about my grumblings about the security of MT. I can only imagine what that means about blogger.com.

Overall, I think it’s a good thing that a greater focus on security come to this genre of software. Pity if it comes at the expense of all those blogger.com users.
