The New York Times hosed my computer

This story doesn’t get any better.

I mentioned earlier that the New York Times was running a Java applet video ad that caused my home computer to wig out.

At work, it seems, the applet causes my computer (G4 Mirrored drive door) to completely lock up and the only remedy is a hard reboot.

These aren’t 486s we’re talking about here. Both machines are top of line with tons of RAM running the latest browsers.

Maybe this is some nasty scheme tought up by the circulation managers at the paper… because now the only way I can read the Times is in print.
