I decided to give the so called “Flash Killer” Silverlight a whirl and see what all the so called “hype” is about. As a huge fan of halo, I ended up attempting to view the Halo 3 videos on the showcase page. Only one problem: The video itself asked me for my birthdate (I assume to make sure I’m over 13, but probably also MS way of tracking demographic) which absolutely would not accept *any* input in my Firefox Browser. I switched over to IE7 and sure enough, it worked like a charm. Lame, Microsoft, just lame!
