a pictorial collage

Did you know? There are just short of 100 different regional variations of Above is a collage of all the (unique) websites available – some smaller countries shared duplicated websites amongst its neighbors. Almost all are individually maintained and updated with local content and native language. Only about 10% of the sites are updated to the latest version, mostly western countries with large markets.

Weirdest regional website? Microsoft Pakistan. A website clearly showing its age. Still promoting Internet Explorer Release Candidate 1, Windows Media Player 10 and Office 2003.

  4. I have the same problm as Marco, Atomusk, Keeron and RC. I have Windows Vista Business (activated,RTM Build), Adobe Flash 9 and Internet Explorer 7. Most other flash content works and only this one is not funcioning correctly. It shows all white. Is there another copy of this?

  5. Works now. What was the problem Long? I’ve noticed the blank image problem a couple time recently on other sites.

  6. Hey, if you go to the Israel page, the scroll bar is on the lefthand side. I know they read hebrew backwards, but I’ve not seen that before. Cool.

  7. @RC: The problem was caused by a silly HTML error that Firefox ignored, whilst IE7 picked up on.

  8. I really like the Zoomify interface across the bottom. How was this done? It’s quite different from the default, out-of-the-box interface which Zoomify ships with.
