One New Thing: A funny thing with XP, IE, and ProQuest.

Someone asked me today why that little swirly image that ProQuest uses to tell you it’s searching these days was going when there didn’t seem to be any searching going on. It seems you can make the page do this when Windows tells you that any information you send can be seen by someone else and do you want to continue, and you (I’m assuming no one bothers reading dialogue boxes anymore?) click No. So it doesn’t continue. But it does make the little ProQuest swirly thing go off as if it were going to do something.
