    There's a live chat with the IE6 team tomorrow, Thursday July 8th, 10am PST time.  Go here for details: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/expertzone/chats/default.mspx

    (I figured this really deserved a thread of its own :->)

    Ugh... Why does this always have to be when I'm busy? ^_^;; A few hours earlier/later, or even any time on sunday, monday or friday would be lovely but not when I have class...

    Hey, I was just ranting about the lack of IE star-power in another post. What a coincidence!

    This chat reminds me to the Longhorn chat some month ago, with scobleizer and some others MS people. There was a lot people but they only answered like 2 or 3 question, but thanks to that chat I discover Channel 9! Let s see today's chat.

    anyone want to bet on the first three questions (in order)? I say:
    1) security (just fix it already...we all now it is just a simple line change)
    2) standards (do you care?)
    3) Is there life on Titan?

    edit:
    thanks manip (only if you remember)

    Can you say SCALABILITY ISSUES?? I keep getting an error when I try to log on to this chat. How pathetic is that?

    It reminds me of the busy signal you get when try to call the radio station to win a pair of Kiss tickets....

    I got banned because I said nasty things about one of Microsofts precious Most Valuable Professional, not shocked. And all I said was I wanted him to stop spouting rubbish from the microsoft knowledge base.

    If some other, non MVP had pasted the same stuff in the chat window like he was THEY would have been banned I have no doubt. 

    It is blatent bias towards them/him on the hosts part.

    Hey guys - I came in 15 minutes late, but I'll post my transcript to the wiki, and then I think ShiningArcanine may have earlier stuff to add to it.

    They'll post an official transcript later on, but this should keep you guys amused in the meantime Smiley

    Also, they'll be holding another IE6 chat on the second Thursday in August. 

    Update: ok, I've put my transcript of the last 45 minutes at http://channel9.msdn.com/wiki/default.aspx/Channel9.IEChatTranscriptFromJuly04

    amusing indeed.

    How do the persons on the IE team feel when it seems there is so much hostility out there against them? Obviously IE is "good enough" but yet if you took a poll with some developers they would think IE is the most annoying thing since "carbs". I guess you probaly couldn't answer this question honestly but anyone who takes pride in their work would have to be annoyed or maybe you just get used to it at MS.

    Before the thing we were all discussing topics and people asked for help and he kept going to the MS knowledge base and copy/pasting these long answers and I told him to shut it and stuff so they kicked me and banned me.
