Major b2evolution and UFO issue

For the past few months I’ve been using Unobtrusive Flash Objects for writing the code required to display Flash in a HTML page. I’ve never had a problem with it until I decided to use it on my own site. The wiki side worked straight away but the blog consistently died in Internet Explorer 6. It worked in Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 2 and Opera 9. The loading bar would show stuff was going on although nothing would be displayed and then I would get an “Operation Aborted” popup box. After about an hour of checking my code character by character and googling all the terms I thought would be relevant I found the solution on the UFO home page. If you scroll way down the page there is a Q and A for “How do I prevent Internet Explorer from crashing when a <base> tag is defined?”. That provides the fix. Phew, panic over 😀

Listen, and understand. That terminator is out there. It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.
