A friend was frustrated to learn today that he has been shut out from NBC's 
Olympic coverage on the web. You see, his maximum resolution is 640x480.

NBC's site detects your screen resolution and shuts you out if you're 640x480. 
If you disable javascript to thwart detection, you're prompted to enable 

If you somehow get past the front page (e.g., someone gives you the URL to an 
interior page), you can then move through the rest of the site as long as you 
don't return to the front page.

Blech.  I wonder whether MS's WebTV users are similarly affected.
