So I went to go re-watch Scott Guthrie's video illustrating the new upcoming MVC (Model-View-Controller) framework for ASP.NET when I noticed that the content is in Silverlight. That's fine, MS is trying so hard to push Silverlight as the answer to the world's problems that it's probably a requirement that all new content from MS come out as Silverlight content. Whatever, I can cope.... normally.
However... today I couldn't see the content. Why? Because I got a message that looks like this:
Ok fine, I can accep that somehow my Silverlight plug-in has expired or is no longer valid. But, isn't part of the beauty of Silverlight that it automatically updates itself like Flash has always done??? Oh.. I guess not. So, I'll just copy the URL and paste it into my browser and be done....WHAT?! The text in the dialog box is uncopyable. I can't select it. So, I have to type. the url. manually.
Then when I get to the URL, guess what I see? An error message indicating that my version of Silverlight plug-in is no longer valid and I need to ... *drumroll* .... go to the following URL to fix it!
