I noticed Firefox and Chrome don’t use small-caps css property on strings containing numbers. Instead it’s just ignored. This is especially annoying when you don’t have plain numbers only and splitting strings in PHP just to fix this bug is not the solution I’m looking for. Anyone got an idea how to fix this the elegant way?

Btw. Opera doesn’t ignore small-caps on numbers and the Internet Explorer may kiss my ass! :P

With the end of Windows XP Microsoft started to heavily use localized resource-names in Windows in order to make work easier for people (e.g. “Program Files” folder is named “Programme” in German Windows). While this folder exists on German Windows XP and older only, on Windows Vista and above it does not exist any more. Instead there’s a folder “Program Files” just as on English systems, but with a “desktop.ini” file which contains a reference to the German localization string inside the “shell32.dll”. In addition Microsoft created a symbolic link named “Programme” which points to “Program Files”. This link cannot be opened from Explorer. If you try to open it you get an error message complaining about access restrictions.

I’m on Facebook for a while now and recently started to use Twitter. In addition I use ICQ, WLM, IRC, e-mail of course, Xing and various other boards and communities, have two cell phones (one with Windows Mobile 6.5 and one with Android 2.3) and my netbook nearly constantly right beside me wherever I go. To make a long story short I hate all this. I hate social networks. I hate instant messaging. I hate being 24/7 on-line and reachable.
