Using slrn. It opens the page just fine by pulling up Galeon. I have
Apache turned off right now, so no screenshots. But the top of the page
is arranged thusly (can't show font sizes, so it's not perfect):

MAXIMUM POWER COMPUTING		Work at Atomic and PC Authority
atomic                          Technical and gaming journalists wanted
                                2 full-time positions

and so forth. The entire URL shows up just fine here, even everything
after the ampersand, and which is included in this post in its

Given Dick's previous folderol I tend to agree with Peter. Dick likely
(in decreasing order of probability):

1. is using Windwoes

2. is lying (combined with #1 most likely, but perhaos independent of
   any Winders use)

3. has something totally screwed up on his linux FUDding-for-dollars
   platform, perhaps intentionally

4. made an honest attempt at using linux, hosed it up and isn't honest
   enough to admit he doesn't know what he's doing, leading to a
   situation in which he can't fix it himself and has started lashing
   out at linux and her users as a sort of twisted revenge for his own

5. has a screwed-up situation and is only now discovering it, but falls
   back to his normal first reaction of blaming everyone else (so far)
   or linux (previously, and probably in the near future) for what's
   wrong with his stuff

If I missed something, I'd be glad to know so I can consider whether I
think it's possible or not.

No sense in Dick giving me his $.02. I filed him away awhile ago, when
I saw his agenda was to be anti-linux.

All things are possible. Except making Windows secure.
