Ok, this is my last message to this list.  For all of the talk that goes
here, about windows opening in a new window or not, and for all the
development knowledge that is discussed.  With the exception of that ASP
question that girl posted earlier, and the cookie discussion which went on
too long most of this stuff is useless.  You people are too obsessed with
the web, you think it makes you, you!  The web doesn't make you, you make
the web.  Get over the windows, really who cares whether or not they open
new link.  And as for all this mac os 9 crap, I could care less about a
and IE for the mac.  I support Windows IE and Netscape everybody else who
wants to run linux (Which I am a fan of but only for servers) and Mac OS
whatever is on their own thats their problem.  Opera is not a mainstream
browser you worry about whether or not the less than 1 percent of the
population who uses it can view your webpages, personally I could care
They can download ie it's free.  And you don't need to go to a website for
cookies.  Theirs not that much to them, you set them, they can either be
temporary or permanent, they can say anything you want thats it see the
script below, and I didn't have to read a whole website for that.  With
those websites you people go to you still couldn't tell me how to send an
email using javascript for netscape.  So basically the way I see it is
no brighter than the average developer you just talk more "web trash."  As
for me I'm going to go home to ride my mountain bike. Being on a listserv
with people like you is enough to drive a man INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for all the help (sarcastic),

Johnny Gebreselassie

p.s. to the admins

Nobody wants to wait two days to have their message posted on a listserv,
because they have a suspicious Header (Send Mail Error) Whats so suspicous
about that you ...(out of courtesy)!

Your mail to 'thelist' with the subject:

    send mail error

Is being held until the list moderator can review it for approval.

The reason it is being held:

    Suspicious header

Either the message will get posted to the list, or you will receive
notification of the moderator's decision.

<SCRIPT Language="JavaScript1.2" TYPE="text/javascript">

        var CookUrl = window.location.href;
        var dummy = null;
        var page = "page";
        SetCookie(page, CookUrl, exp, dummy, dummy, dummy);

Ok, then just to double check.

If www.domain.com sets a cookie, something.domain.com
can read it?

Thanks all,
