Nothing happened when the Patents Office addressed the public, asking about
the possibility of an MSIE-only site. From what I have been told, 6 hard
copies had to be sent by each individual only to protest about the choice.
Submission of patents now requires MSIE so public opposition was not heard,
or was never intended to be heard in the first place...
Parents: How would you feel if we sold your computer?
Boy: No way. I love that computer.
Parent: Well, too late. We have already sold it.
PS - Where can I get the source code for that thing called IE? I would like
to compile it, debug it and maybe then register for on-line help and get
myself food and shelter.
