      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

Google & Dell's Revenue-Generating URL Error

May. 23, 2007 ~ Danny Sullivan - "Last year, Google signed a landmark deal to become the default search engine on new Dell computers, plus to bundle Google software. Now, people are noting anew that a consequence of the deal seems to be pushing Dell users to search results dominated by Google ads, rather than editorial listings. Google's Browser Address Error Redirector from Google Operating System and Google turns the page... a "feature" called "Browser Address Error Redirector" that sends those using Dell computers and trying to reach non-existent web sites to a page loaded with ads. This has actually been going on for nearly a year now... Defaults and choice are important, because Google led a loud charge last year against Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 as somehow making it too difficult for mere mortals to change to another search provider from its default settings... I was far from the only one raising this (issue). Nearly a year later, those using Dell's don't appear to have gained any greater choice, while arguably, their search experience has gone down."
