| Microsoft Bug Fix Causes Service Disruption|
Microsoft has released a new patch to IE browser that no longer supports the following syntax.
It is very disappointing to see Microsoft drop a key feature in HTTP protocol with its new version of IE. Many custom authentication mechanisms made use of this completely legitimate, and correctly supported by other browsers, feature.

So much for being responsible, innovative company.
