We noticed a typo today that apparently caused error messages to appear on some versions of the MSIE browser, and of course we fixed it right away. Remember that if you ever see any sorts of error messages here on, let us know what the messages are and what sort of browser you're using, and we'll get it fixed. We're only human and are bound to make mistakes from time to time, but we'll always endeavor to fix them quickly.
