US President Bill Clinton quoting his daughter: "Denial is not just a river in Egypt."
This is what CNN looks like in my browser. This totally unreadable, and no, I'm not going to make all the other sites I visit look bad by increasing the font size. Sometimes a DoS attack comes from within.
Dan Bricklin posted the demo script he used at Demo.
A beautiful Manila site.
USA Today: Top Ads Tickled, Tugged at Heart. "The Chicago widow, a former cosmetologist, stood at a fast-food restaurant counter with cohorts Mildred Lane and Elizabeth Shaw staring at a tiny hamburger on a huge bun.
