Well, we made it …

Well, we made it through another year. Congratulations.

Here are my New Years Resolutions:

  • Lose 20 pounds by April (current weight: 218, target weight: 200)
  • Invest as much money as possible into CollabNet (my employer)
  • Stop chewing/biting my nails (this is a bad habit I’ve had for 15 years)
  • Build my DVD movie collection to 200 titles

Reviews of Web Conferencing Software

Some people just don’t get it. If you’re going to submit a site to CamWorld, you should make sure I can at least view it first. Requiring Internet Explorer 5.5 to view a site is a slap in the face not only to me, but also to the millions of people still using Netscape 4.x and other browsers on platforms that aren’t so damn Microsoft-centric. No brownie points for you, pal.

It’s disturbing to me to come across sites that have obviously never been through any kind of cross-browser testing. When building your site, keep these rules in mind:

  • Just because you can see/browse your site just fine doesn’t mean others can
  • Just because you can see/browse my site just fine doesn’t mean that I can see yours
  • Don’t take it for granted that everyone has a browser/OS environment that matches yours. The odds are that they don’t.
