I.E. on a PC, my news don't allways come up on my browser after publishing from NP, but if i browse my way with the Mac it is updated.
If i then reboot the PC (1 - 3 times) the news show up.


I've seen this problem too and its basically IE's fault not PC's in general.
Sometimes you can press refresh 100 times on IE and it wont refresh. You go to Netscape, do a single "reload", get back to IE and voilá, there you have the page with new contents.

Its just weird...

Yep, that's a browser problem, not a PC problem. I've also not seen it happen with recent versions of IE.

Seen the solution with swithing between IE and Netscape, i've allso seen it the other way around.

PC and IE IS a wide standard, isen't it? :-)

BTW. Div Devlin: Did you solve your problem?

Yep, but then you wouldn't be happy if we described a buggy program as a "Mac problem", would you? And there's plenty of Mac programs that have bugs too. ;)

If it were a mac app that was closely tied into the core of the operating system, then it would be a mac bug, since it'd be part of macos. IE is part of windows, thus any IE bug is a windows bug.

Windows /= PC - there are plenty of other OSes that run on the PC. Also, Internet Explorer is not part of the OS, despite MS'es attempts to suggest otherwise - it *can* be removed, it is just a horrible job to do so.

Just because Microsoft chooses to force their browser on users doesn't mean it is fair to compare a PC browser bug to a Mac OS bug. If I upgraded my browser, would you suggest that this was "upgrading my OS"? Of course not.

The bug you refer to - which, like I say, is fixed in at the very least the version on my PC, is not an OS bug. And my point still stands - Macs have bugs too, and I guarantee you there are bugs in the core of both operating systems, Mac and Windows.
