It's a bummer that you're running your webserver on an NT box and
that your info-grabbing page is written in (what I presume is a)
visual basic and complains bitterly when I attempt to use Lynx to
fill out the survey form I need to fill out before I can look at the
specifications for the firewall.
I know that marketing doesn't have anything to do with technology
(shoot, when I developed WebShield for McAfee Associates, I got to
deal for *18* months with a sales team that BELIEVED! that only
Microsoft Windows NT was relevant, wouldn't bother to actually
advertise WebShield (or Virus Scan for Linux), and then whined
bitterly when they weren't getting the $100 million dollars a year in
sales that they should have been getting. Nice company, but very
stupid) but it doesn't bode well when you have to fill out personal
details before you're even allowed to look at the technical requirements
for a network security product.
