    Right. So they come up with this "security quiz" and they don't expect to attract the attention of hackers and crackers? Sounds fishy. They should have expected shenanigans and they would have known that any press about weak security with recent Msoft efforts would be trumpeted. Good for a chuckle, though.

    "The Gatekeeper Test experienced an intermittent ViewState clustering issue on the live environment. This means that certain servers in the cluster lost session state information due to data stored in the ViewState. Consequently, intermittent user scores were not being stored, resulting in a compromised scorecard for some participants.
    and this is the software he wants us to run our ecommerce on?

    Is it possible to do worse than WinME?
    IMO Win95 was better than WinME.
    Never played with 3.1, but that was probably better too.

    It is better than WinME isn't it?
    Which isn't saying much.

    No I don't need any benchmarks, thanks anyway.

    I honestly don't think so... But I'll leave it with M$ to prove me wrong
    You can only be young once. But you can always be immature.
