Brought low by acute pharyngitis. Illness is God's way of saying "take a break." So that's what we're doing. Not without publishing something, of course. Hence, The SICKNESS. It's one of those self-revelatory things we do very, very rarely. You've been warned.

19 March 1999
The Web Standards Project has issued a statement bemoaning the incomplete standards support in Microsoft IE5.

Now He Is With Hitchcock: With Roberto Benigni and all the world, we mourn the passing of Stanley Kubrick, the film genius who gave us Paths of Glory, Lolita, Spartacus, Dr Strangelove, 2001, A Clockwork Orange, and The Shining. "Mr Kubrick," we hear Hitch saying, "you're not wearing a tie." We hope that, somewhere, Kubrick and Jim Thompson have reconciled, and these three dark dreamers of the 20th Century – Kubrick, Hitchcock, and Thompson – have found peace and light in a place beyond time.
