Re: An Adobe Wannbe?

They've made a good effort in doing just that with this little beauty.

I honestly don't know how anyone could ever write the code for such a thing at any point in the past 20 years and not stop what they're doing. It must take a special kind of blindness (I'm being generous in not using words like lunatic, idiot, numpty, raving moron) to be able to do it. Presumably someone else somewhere in Cisco reviewed the code and also failed to spot it?

If that's what they do with things like a browser plug in, what's their router source code like?!
