Last week, we told you about a scheduled March 4 funeral for Internet Explorer 6, which reportedly died as "a result of a workplace injury sustained at the headquarters of Google, Inc."

Turns out the level of hatred for IE6 exceeded the expectations of folks at Aten Design Group, who are staging the service. A note on the website that serves as the funeral's invitation reads: "Apparently even more people want to see IE6's cold dead body than we imagined." So "to better accommodate the overwhelming response," the chief mourners have changed the venue from Aten's offices, at 1629 Downing Street, to Forest Room 5, 2532 15th Street.

Come 7 p.m. on Thursday, that's the place where those who RSVP can pay their respects -- or share their lack thereof. But only if the ATG crew doesn't have to move to another larger room. Maybe Invesco Field is available...
