Cheap Macintosh project

, as part of its People's Computer project. According to a report in Bankok's The Nation, the "ICT Ministry has tied up with Apple Computer (Thailand) to launch a cheap Macintosh computer project. Information and Communications Technology Minister Surapong Suebwonglee said yesterday that the computer would be a Macintosh G4 and it would be sold under the market price. An IT source said the model would probably be the eMac G4, which goes for about Bt40,000 in stores. A briefing on the Mac Up Your Life project is set for tomorrow, but Surapong said it would start in the middle of this month."

    Thai Gov Web site IE6

    The Thai government web site
    http://www.thaigov.go.th/eGovernmentWeb/
    is Internet Explorer 6 only.
    In light of this report it would be nice if many people could
    complain to them that they should adhere to common Web standards.
    I have already written a message with regard to the Linux machines that are distributed under the same program.

    The web pages actually work fine if you set Safari to dissimulate as IE6,
    but that's not the point, that message should not appear in the first place at all.
