Thursday, January 25th, 2007

Social networking is a hoot. Now personally, I would never use this crap for real, but that's just me. I'm sort of anti-social in a real sense, and am given to working for long periods in isolation. I don't require much "chit-chat" to soothe my ego, I'd ...

Netscape Changes Front Page Ranking Algo - Does Anyone Care?

Wednesday, November 8th, 2006

Still looks like Politics to me Netscape recognized that their website had become a train wreck.

Good news for the giant army of pay-for-play bloggers: Netscape is now a serious contender to the throne of the social networking websites. Why do I say this? Because I saw...and I now believe. Netscape has the makings of a solid online community. Sure, some old ...

Netscape.com bug report - looks like some issues need fixed

Monday, July 3rd, 2006

Netscape.com doesn't actually say "Beta" on it anywhere, but maybe it should. Some would argue that "Alpha" might even more appropriate. There are some glaring software bugs which I'll outline, in the hopes that someone from Netscape reads them. Perhaps if I'm "Scaped" I can help fix ...
