Okay, this is funny. I just read a little blog by Jamie about ComicCon and saw a link to this site. Um. Okay. So I see a preview comic strip and then click it, as told (I’m quite the sheep), and then am asked to download Silverlight. Sigh. Great, another plug-in.
Why does everything require a plug-in?
Please, someone tell me.
Anyway, I’m a little crazy so I click the Download Silverlight link and then get the luxury of reading what is perhaps the shortest license I’ve seen in about a decade:
Well, that’s refreshing.
Oops. Except now I’m told I can’t “work around any technical limitations in the software” (which basically means I have to use the software as I’m told, at least if this could stand up in court).
At this point I give up.
Whatever happened to clicking on a link and seeing the latest Dilbert cartoon?
I’m thinking this comic strip is probably meant to showcase Silverlight, thus the requirement to download the plug-in, but, really…
At least give me an alternative URL option. ;)
