Displaying a keen sense of irony, InformIT have ensured that their download page does not work in Mozilla. The book is available as a zip file containing a collection of PDFs or as a zip file containing a collection of RTF documents.

Thank you all for your comments about InformIT's CSS problems. The problem is ironic, but we are taking it very seriously. As soon as we learned of the problem, our developers went to work to correct it, and a new build will be released tonight (4/15/04) that will allow Mozilla users to view the Bruce Perens' pages on

Our site is tested for compatibility under all major (and several minor) browsers, and Mozilla is included in that mix. However, we released some new code last weekend that wasn't tested thoroughly enough. For that we apologize, and we'll try not to let it happen again (those needing floggings have been flogged).

Some people commented on not being able to access the site at all, and for that I have no explanation. We have had no downtime events, and despite the CSS problems, our site has been running without interruption. There was one bad link listed in the original post above, so let me provide you all with a correct link (a redirect) and the direct link to the Bruce Perens' Open Source Series page:

<> (this link is a redirect to...)


Hopefully if you try either of those links on 4/16, you will have no problems with the pages in Mozilla. If you have any other comments, please feel free to contact us at <>.

Thanks for your patience,

Dustin Sullivan
