Well what do you expect from some **** website that requires full blown Java to function, and has source code that looks like a trip in the wayback machine to 1997?

Not opera's fault you can't access a website written by people who by all accounts have no **** business having a website in the first place.

Hell, that website refusing to let you in unless you turn on JAVA (not javascript, but full on Java) is enough for me to report the site as suspect/scam. I most certainly wouldn't voluntarily open it - Just exactly what is it?


Unfortunately it is my university website where I can log in and find out my university marks for the year. It is almost as crappy as blackboard. About the only thing that doesn't suck from Victoria University is the email service - and that is because it has been outsourced to Microsoft via their Outlook Live service.

Ouch. The university I attended did something even worse during my second or third year. The originally had a simple, old-school CGI/Perl application for course registration - it worked in any current browser (by late 90s standards), and even the on-campus kiosks for course registration were just dumb terminals that ran the registration site in a text-only browser.

Then they bought & converted over to this IIS/ActiveX-based piece of crap that only worked with IE on Win9x/NT (when it worked, instead of just crashing - the client and the server, that is). The software was so ill-suited (or just badly-configured) that, in order to register for a full-year course, you had to register for it *twice* - once for each semester.
