Hi :)
Just had a classic from my boss.  He says he prefers Internet Explorer and
Adobe because he's never had any trouble with them.  He can't download
 Pdfs though and has the same problem at home.  Firefox on his machine here
downloads them fine.  When Foxit is set as the default Pdf reader then IE
does download.

Going to showed 26 important security updates that didn't
get installed through his auto-updates.  None were about adding
functionality. Then java and different things needed to be updated
separately.  The only updates (well upgrades really) that added
functionality were for Firefox and LibreOffice.

His Internet Explorer is still grumbling about some C++ problem in
iexplorer.exe whenever he tries to download pdfs.  He still says there is
no problem with IE.

Regards from
Tom :)


That was indeed a classic, Tom - of the «just works» tribe ! It may seem
strange that people will believe propositions that are directly countered
by their own experience, but that's been the case for thousands of years -
and what public relations and advertising, not to mention religious
organisations, base their considerable success upon....
