Broken: Software error

Blue, huh? The software must be sad.


I've always said that AutoCAD blew.

Or maybe it's the BDBOD (blue dialog box of death)?

Interesting... This Is Broken uses target="_blank" which goes against standards.

What's the standard?

I've been out of work for four months. AutoCAD must miss me terribly.

AutoCad can't do blue, it's against everything it believes in.

This doesn't look like a dialog that AutoCAD would display. It would be useful to know the context that generated the offending dialog.

The W3C suggests that you don't use target="_blank", thus letting the user decide whether to open a link in a new window and promoting accessibility. I think they've removed the entire attribute from HTML strict.

On the other hand, most people don't give a hoot.

i like target="_blank" it makes me feel in charge (and also keeps them at my site longer)!

I don't know if I'm right but this looks fake to me.

It says blue because it is sad that it is running on windows Xp.
