You may or may not notice but we did a pretty major update and retooled several items that were no longer working correctly. Unfortunately part of the reason for the update was to try and correct problems with Internet Explorer 6 which started showing up after recent Windows Updates however it appears whatever Microsoft did has broken IE6 and the BITS website. As you can see by the tag at the upper left this site will only format correctly with IE7 or Firefox.

If you find a problem in the site please let us know and we will continue trying to get IE6 working again.

Make sure to check out the new online radio player to the lower right and how you can launch it in a seperate mini player which keeps running even if you browse away from out site. Right now we are playing the 80’s and can change that based on user feedback so comment on what you would like to hear!

In a court case dating back to 2005 where a traveler coming back from the Philippines had his notebook seized by Customs Agents the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled border searches can include your notebook, digital camera, cell phone or any other digital device.

So you ask how does this really relate to me well let’s just see.

Let’s say you just took a trip to Europe with the entire family and of course you took memory card after memory card full of all those special times with the family. On your return through JFK Customs an Agent decides to not just look at your images but since you have multiple cards and he has no idea how to use your camera he confiscates your cards for further inspection. Now we all know the Government works really quick so you know they will get your memory cards back to you ASAP, in others words a few months from now. Oh wait I forgot something your from Winston-Salem and Customs was in JFK so guess where you will have to go to get your cards back because they are under no obligation to mail you anything.
