How did IE6 die? According to the announcement on view below, it was a workplace accident at Google Inc.
The services, to be held at 7 p.m. March 4 at Aten's offices, at 1629 Downing Street, probably won't be a respectful affair, given that the event's invitation urges folks to mix and mingle with the city's "top IE6 haters." And that's fine by me. I'm writing this on a borrowed computer because earlier today, mine was attacked by an evil replicating virus, or something similar, that Westword's computer guru says was spawned by -- you guessed it -- Internet Explorer.
Burn in hell, IE6! Here's the death notice:
Internet Explorer Six, resident of the interwebs for over 8 years, died the morning of March 1, 2010 in Mountain View, California, as a result of a workplace injury sustained at the headquarters of Google, Inc. Internet Explorer Six, known to friends and family as "IE6," is survived by son Internet Explorer Seven, and grand-daughter Internet Explorer Eight.
Funeral services for Internet Explorer Six will be held at 7pm on March 4 at Aten Design Group, 1629 Downing Street, Denver, CO 80218. Those unable to attend the funeral are asked to send flowers.
Thursday, March 4, 2010 7:00 pm Aten Design Group Office
Funeral attire is encouraged.
Come mix & mingle with Denver's top IE6 haters. We'll have a special time of remembrance, a round of IE6 darts, and plenty of food & drinks.
Prizes will be awarded for the best IE6 memory & the best dressed!
