Browse Like It's 1995

In a trend that oddly mirrors the recent flap over’s new music service, my sharebuilder account was inaccessible to me this afternoon.

It seems that the powers that be at Sharebuilder think I should be using a browser newer than Microsoft or Netscape 4.0. Hmm, I thought Safari, Camino, and Mozilla Firebird were all newer than 4.0.

Lucky for me, Safari can mask itself as other user agents. A quick trip to the Debug menu and I was able to login again.
