Irony

I'd like to point out the irony in the fact that "Microsoft Outlook Web Access" (i.e. the webmail thingy for MS Exchange) works a hell of a lot better with a Mozilla based browser than the lotus notes webmail thingy we had at my previous job.

  1. Unfortunately Exchange still treats Firefox/Opera etc as second-class citizens. Prior to Exchange 2003, the UI layed out badly in Firefox, but all the features were available. Now, everything looks spiffy, but you can't search mailboxes or contacts, which is MUCH worse. Try 'http://yourexchange/exchange/Your.Name/Inbox/?Cmd=search&theme=0' with different user agents to see the missing page...
    I have my IE set up with exchange webmail as its homepage as it is the only thing I still need to use it for. Bah.

  2. Dude, Opera is so a second-class citizen. Stop denying reality.
    Speaking of second class, I always hear about third-world countries. What about the second-world countries? Which ones are those?

  3. I believe second world countries used to be a reference to communist countries or those that lived under its shadow such as the baltic states. The all knowing wikipedia makes the same claims so it must be true.
