We Notice You’re Not Using Internet Explorer

Michael Giberson

In fact-checking myself on “Rivers of Babylon” (discussed in the continuation of my previous post), I saw in the Wikipedia entry that Sublime covered the tune too. I had just used the Wal-mart.com website to download the Virginia CutUps version of the tune – yeah, I’m not too hip to download music from Walmart – and so I returned to see if they carried the Sublime version.

After a moment’s churning, the Walmart.com website spit back the following message:

We notice you’re not using Internet Explorer. To continue, please visit this page using Internet Explorer 6.0 or later.

As if. I may be square, but I’m not that square.
