joe peacock: i have no idea why there wasn't a company-wide mandate at [company] the nanosecond IE7 came out that everyone ditch ie6
joe peacock: ie6 is pretty much the Bush Administration of web browsers
lori: ha, yeah, there are a lot of people who agree with you!
joe peacock: yeah, like, the whole internet
joe peacock: ie6 is a horrible prank gone terribly wrong. At least ie7 just has "nuances" that are a bit retarded. IE6 is just a spastic retarded baby goat bleating throughout the night, keeping you awake
joe peacock: i'm not making a joke, I'm being absolutely terribly honest
joe peacock: if I could go back in time and slay the parents of the man (or men) who thought that absolutely violating all known standards of DOM and grid display was a terrific way to lock market share, I'd probably not do it because then it'd change other events, like the invention of almond extract or something
joe peacock: and i like almond
joe peacock: but still, i hate those guys
It saddens me deeply that, in the middle of 2008, we even have to have this conversation.
