You scored 58% Personal Liberty and 39% Economic Liberty!

A neo-liberal believes in moderate government intervention on personal matters and moderate to high government intervention on economic matters. They believe in a social safety net or welfare state and try to balance personal liberty with safety or security. Some neo-liberals believe in more foreign intervention or war then most other leftists. Others are more like Centrist Democrats. More authoritarian-leaning Neo-liberals (such as personal 40/economic 30) are the result of a "fusion" between "old left" and "new right" tendencies.

My test tracked 2 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

IE7 right at your door

I've a friend who writes lovely reviews of the films he watches and I'm well grateful for them. I, however, rarely write reviews of films as I see so very many of 'em... most are pants (Don't even ask me about The Wickerman or Miami Vice), but every so often one sticks out as being particularly bad. The most recent member of this category has got to be Right At Your Door.

I was quite looking forwards to it TBH as I'd heard that it had a twist at the end, but it wasn't a nice metaphysical twist where you find out the whole scenario has been set up by a "TV Company"/"The Government"/"Aliens" in order to test the poor, sad, excuse of a fella. Ohh no, it was a crappy twist that left the basic assumptions of the film in place... in fact it even seemed to set out to assert that a government knows WTF it is doing!

On a lighter note I've been doing some work in the sphere of web-design in the form of NECT. The stuff I've been working on is here and I'm quite impressed with myself in all honesty. I was having all sorts of problems getting the CSS to work across all browsers correctly and I was coming to the point of not giving a monkey's about supporting IE6 but then I remembered a post on /. about a JavaScript that forced IE to be standards-like. That script was IE7, "IE7 is a JavaScript library to make IE behave like a standards-compliant browser. It fixes many CSS issues and makes transparent PNG work correctly under IE5 and IE6". Wow, cool!
