For anyone reading this blog who is against SOPA, let me ask you this: Do you feel piracy is stealing?
Personally, I don't think piracy is stealing under all circumstances. For example, if one has the CDs to an older game, and the game isn't available to purchase in a version that doesn't require the CD, I think it is fair for someone to download a version of the game to play it on their computer without a CD drive, as long as they buy the game when and if it becomes legally available in a no-CD version.
There can very well be first amendment issues with the SOPA as it is currently worded. But, I wonder if such issues are being blown out of proportion by people who really just want to continue downloading digital media without compensating the content creators for their hard work.
The issue is in DwDict.c. In technical detail, dwd_nextkey() does not use the hash function dwh_hash_compress() (in DwHash.c) to find the right hash bucket, but instead performs a slow traversal of the hash buckets.
To pull it off, I had to make another version of the image at the top. There are now three versions of this image:
I was able to kill two birds with one stone: My workaround is to not use css3pie for the background image of the clouds at the top; this is where the slowdown was most visible and where css3pie's zoom bug was an issue. Instead, the top of the page has square corners and uses the IE7 version of the top image.
I also made the gradient background for the link bar a tileable version for IE8 so it doesn't look too bad when zoomed while having the css3pie curved corners.
