That's the way I see it too. Arrogant web designers, and I use the terms
web designer loosely, who don;t know their rectums from a whole in the
ground. LOL I already have filed one complaint - somewhat informally -
and will file a more formal one, now that my suspicions have been
As far as not using the site, well, that's not an option for the next
three years. It's a paid membership site that provides my son's
curriculum and their curriculum is considered one of the best. Their
non-member area is not browser specific, only the members area. The
Firefoc on my son's Windows machine handles it fine, so we can live with
it. I just have to use his machine if I want to access the curriculum
materials. I cna access the progess reports fine on my machine. It's the
stuff inside the main frame that does not work.
Anyway, thanks for the info. One of these days people will learn that
using Windoes machines, either as desktops or servers, is not in their
best interest! LOL
