Yes, master, you are the only OS, master

I visited a site to see what times Breakfast on Pluto [you need broadband for that link] is airing in our local theater on Friday. So the page came up, I clicked on “Fri”, and nothing happened. Hmm. Try again, try reload, nope. Ok, fine: View->Page Source. The first few lines told me the evil truth:

<script language=”VBSCRIPT”>
Function ScheduleRequest(ByVal ReqDate)
Dim pi

times.seldate.value = CDate(ReqDate)
Set oXML = createobject(“Microsoft.XMLHTTP”)
oXML.open “POST”, times.gateway.value, False
… etc …

Yes, Dark Lord, your wish is my command, no one shall buy a movie ticket online unless they run Wind0ws.

Why the hell would someone choose to implement this in Visual Basic ? <spit/>

(Turns out the movie’s stopping in Ireland on Friday. At least the DVD’s out in April in the US, and hopefully not too much later in Ireland and the UK.)

Some people may not get health insurance so they have choice to pay for the really expensive prescription drugs or research how to buy generic medications online. Generic drugs are as safe as other branded meds. Only reputable pharmacy produces them such as Adjanta. Having this in head one can buy stromectol uk in generic online drugstore including free shipping anywhere in the world
