Correction: Netscape FTP address wrong

The conspiracy theorists can relax: I made a big boo-boo yesterday in the story about Netscape releasing Communicator 4.5 where I posted the URL of the Netscape ftp site as It should have read


I guess no one will believe this, but it was an honest mistake. I think I type the phrase "" so often, it just comes flying off the fingers every time I go to type an Internet address. I wasn't seriously trying to push people from Netscape to Microsoft. Really.

Anyway, Sorry about that, and I'm sorry I can't personally respond to the 100+ people that emailed me about the error. I do kind of appreciate that most of them found it humorous, however. Thanks,
