    It doesn't seem to fucking work with FireFox 1.0. Worked fine in 1.0PR, but now when I login it gives me a warning about having the wrong Java version (I have 1.5.0) and then doesn't do anything when I click on the links.

    Fuckers, I fucking hate those WebCT bastards.

    Damnit. They'll be getting some angry email soon. But I know what they'll say "use an approved browser and operating system, we don't approve Linux or Firefox for use with WebCT."

    Meh, I'm guessing it won't be any better. At the beginning of the year it was even worse because the school didn't realize how much server capability they needed to properly run WebCT for 30,000 students and it was ass slow unless you logged on at 2AM.

    There's a reason why the CS department keeps their network and computers entirely separate from the university-run network :embd:

    CNS just stays out of our building and we let them be. It's pretty much a peaceful co-existence.

    only if it worked like that here. ITS thinks they are gods and go about flaunting their shit. most of them just suck at life and try and stir the shit pot.


    anyways, webct sucks ;)
