Yeah, I'm always angry about my company when I see its external (Netscape
based) pages fail in many situations. To be fair, it's often not the servers
that fail but the WebMasters...

But InformationWeek really want to *PROVE* that free software sucks:
When I went to http://www.InformationWeek.com today, using a
Netscape 4.05 browser, this was what I got (note the duplicate MIME
header):
    telnet myproxy 81
    Connected to myproxy.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    GET http://www.InformationWeek.com HTTP/1.0

    HTTP/1.0 200 OK

    Server: Apache/1.2.0 mod_perl/1.08

Reloading (or clicking on the `self' link) didn't help either.
