The Email Standards Project has garnered some attention from us over the last while, with its attempts to bring a lesser version of web standards to the process of rendering HTML in emails.
Their recent “2008 Gmail Appeal” looks to have had some success, with a member of the Gmail development team getting in contact and promising that some effort will be made to improve the popular webmail system’s HTML rendering. What’s next?
Windows Vista has had a lot of bad press and Microsoft are probably hoping that the release of Service Pack 1 will boost Vista’s image – we have a look at the changes.
A month or two after downgrading my HP Compaq 6715b laptop to Windows XP, I’ve found some real benefits to having given up Vista.
Certainly the “Wow” has been replaced by the enjoyment of having a stable, resource friendly system that can be relied upon to perform where needed.
Windows Vista came pre-installed on a new addition to the Pixelapes computer equipment and after 2 months of lacklustre performance the question must be asked:
Why shouldn’t we just take a quick step back and revert to Windows XP? Can you provide some valid arguments to encourage a second chance for the new Windows Vista operating system?
When you try to do pretty much anything on a computer, it is fairly standard to see a display showing how much of the task is done, and how much is left before the task is completed. This rings true for copying files, opening a web page, installing a programme, and many other things.
Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom, have apparently decided that one task in particular clearly doesn’t need a progress display.
