Interesting.

When you do this the first time, it looks like a simple oversight - left-overs from some debugging perhaps. But when you "fix" it by hiding it, it's very clearly deliberate.

Netgear, Cisco, quick question please? What exactly does it take to actually care about your customers instead of actively trying to screw them?

The problem with Haskell is that it's a language built on lazy evaluation and nobody's actually called for it.

Arrrgh! Help!  - 
 
I recommended Ubuntu, pre-installed in an HP Pavilion All-In-One, to my father as a replacement for his Windows '98 rig.

He seemed to like it.

Until...

Any idea why a new Ubuntu machine is doing this? Can't be bothered to attempt to get past HP's customer "service".

Keeping it simple as usual. Thanks +Anthony Ferrara

When I'm dancin' and hoedownin'
My boots kinda slow down
Or anytime I'm weak in the knees,
I hanker for a hunk o'
A slab, a slice, a chunk o',
A snack that is a winner
And yet won't spoil my dinner,
I hanker for a hunk o' cheese!

This problem has been driving me nuts lately on a simple web project, so I asked on Stack Overflow - please give my question a vote and/or answer. Thanks!

A humble hyperlink, with a CSS :active class applied to 'depress' it when clicked means that the link has a very noticeable 'dead zone', where clicking it still triggers the :active state, but doesn't respond to click events, or work as a hyperlink.
