Sawadee: your "comparison" isn't relevant, nor very interesting. CV might have been opened in 1995, but it's been updated much more recently than that (sadly, not by much since 2001, which is a long time before Stuart's diagnosis). And most users are (arguably) using an OS that's more recent than 1995. Nor is there is question about the widespread use of Windows, even if there are such things as "Windows '95 reference sites".

The points about unupdated websites have already been outlined in the article above - there's no need to try and make any more up to avoid them.

Where we go next should be obvious - we need to ask those website maintainers, again, to do something about their sites. The situation isn't good, and hasn't been for some years. dgs at the very least has been honest about why some of the sites under his influence aren't as current as they could be.
