    HA!
    Then they are full of crap. The story I get is that
    I need to be using Firefox because it doesn't work well
    with IE. From what you report, it seems that they
    find out what you use then tell you you need the other.

    Forget Netscape. It's dead!!

    Have you tried Seamonkey?:

    http://www.seamonkey-project.org/

    .....which is essentially Netscape continued by Mozilla, the folks that
    kept Netscape alive for so long. It's all the good things of Firefox
    with all the cool old stuff like Netscape. IOW, one big suite,
    instead of split up like Firefox and Thunderbird for email. It's done
    a few things I don't like, like the newer xml bookmarks nonsense, but
    it's the closest thing to Netscape and works fine with ebay. Plus, it
    can use the cooler plug-ins/add-ons like FF. NoScript is a "must
    have" for any browser! They make a version of Seamonkey for Macs.

    Looks food related, but for what?

    I think that link works. That seems to be
    the link that worked on my Mac, but I post
    to Usenet through a machine that has the
    Netscape browser, and eBay has recently
    broken their software so nothing can be
    accessed from Netscape. They've been slowly
    breaking the Mac platform too, over the last
    two years or so, but it still (just barely)
    works. If you report a problem to customer
    service, they just make excuses why you
    should be running the latest version of
    Internet Explorer.

    I wish Google or Amazon would buy eBay,
    fire all the software guys, and roll the
    software back to the point where it worked
    on darn near every platform. They could
    make a fortune just by installing competent
    people to run the company, instead of the
    idiots in charge right now.

    It's been a couple years since I talked to them.
    Maybe they just recommend what the software developers
    are using at the time. Like I said, customer service
    at eBay just makes excuses for their broken software,
    nothing more.

    Ah! I should have recognized it from the plate
    with the holes. Especially after that chicken-shaped
    ceramic egg cooker a year or two ago.

    I wouldn't cook anything in an unknown metal or alloy.
    It really doesn't look like copper in the photo.
