Sorry for quoting you, anybody may answer this: how does having the Copyright/Powered by line support the developers? It gives them credit, but support?

Re: April Fools Fourm Jokes

The fix is only available for Windows 2000 Professional and up (Windows 98 users have been given nothing, it's just one of Microsoft's ways of saying "upgrade to Windows Vista so we can slap DRM all over you and cost you hundreds of dollars (almost as much as Vista itself) for a whole new computer ...

No way to get 150 million drivers, as a group, to cut down that much. Exactly. Everytime I'm in the US and I hear people compl...

For one, it isn't searchable by search engines, so a person can't go a google search and find an answer to a question. In that same way, you can't link to a topic. Flash suffers these same problems.
