Revamp In Progress!

I can rebuild it. I have the technology. I have the capability to make the world's first bionic web site. Game Buzz will be that web site. Better than it was before. Better... stronger... faster. Okay, so I don't really know how to make Game Buzz "bionic", but I have already been working to make it better, stronger, and faster.

I am working on two new news systems. Once one of them is complete, new content should be posted more frequently.

Please feel free to let me know if you encounter any problems or peculiarities with either the page layout or the news reader software. You may use the following e-mail address, but please do not redistribute it or use it for spam:

"Our Colony" Windows-Centric Code Fails in Some Browsers

If you have been keeping up with recent developments at the Xbox viral marketing site "Our Colony", you may have noticed the word "Challenge" with no link and no nearby content to which it might refer. If so, you are probably using a Gecko-based Web browser such as Mozilla Firefox, but don't blame its developers; the culprit is a Windows-centric file path for an image element in the XHTML markup of the page:

<img src="..\images\challenges\dot_1.jpg" id="ChallengeImage" />

In Internet addresses, directory and file names should be delimited by forward slashes, not backslashes. Microsoft's own Internet Explorer 6 handles Windows-formatted paths and unfortunately, Opera 8 allows them as well, but Firefox 1.0.3 displays nothing where the image is intended to be—not even so much as a warning message, which might have been nice.

It is unfortunate that Internet Explorer accepts so much bad data without complaint; the Web would be in much better shape if more sloppy Web developers saw their errors flagged rather than ignored by their Web browsers.
