RE: Spam:****, Re: alternativephotography.com and cyanotype

As usual Katherine you are missing the point. If you can view a site with
one browser and not another on the same computer, then the browser that
doesn't work has a configuration option that prevents the web site from
being viewed. IOW, the software isn't broken just not configured equally (in
a rough sense) to the browser that does work.

Well, I hate to disagree with such confident certainty, but the fact  
is that before I changed computers and browser, I could not access  
that site with the browser that was on my computer, and if there was  
something I really wanted to see on the site, I had to start up a  
browser I didn't like and didn't care to use as a rule, (it was very  
slow and took forever to open and close and download things, in  
comparison to the older browser I ordinarily used) in order to access  
the site. This was inconvenient at best and exasperating at less than  
best.  With the computer I have now and the browser I have now, the  
site is easily accessible.  So it doesn't make sense to me to say  
that the hardware or software doesn't have anything to do with it.   
Besides, if software didn't matter, why would you get those messages  
one sometimes gets that say "this site is best viewed with Microsoft  
Explorer v. xyz" or whatever the site is optimized for.
