Please, Please, Please Quit using Versions of Internet Explorer Less than IE 7.
Please send this to all of your friends and relatives, and even the people who you don't like.
Internet Explorer 6 came out in August of 2001. By most business standards, this might not seem like a long time, but by my Industry Standards, that's like driving a car from the 1980's. With IE6, it's not just any old car, it is The Pinto, without the safety kit.
Now, IE 8 has just launched, so if you're using IE 6, you're two free upgrades behind everybody else.
There are also lots of BETTER free options, like Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.
Please switch to one of these as your primary browser. You'll find a faster, more secure, better looking internet in there. I promise.
What questions do you have about upgrading? Ask them here! Please! If something is keeping you from upgrading, tell me about it.

I'm Issac. I live in Oakland. I make things for fun and money. I use electronics and computers and software. I manage teams and projects top to bottom. I've worked as a consultant, software engineer, hardware designer, artist, technology director and team lead. I do occasional fabrication in wood and plastic and metal. I run a boutique interactive agency with my brother Kasey and a roving cast of experts at Kelly Creative Tech. I was the Director of Technology for Nonchalance during the The Latitude Society project. I was the Lead Web Developer and then Technical Marketing Engineer at Nebula, which made an OpenStack Appliance. I've been building things on the web and in person since leaving Ohio State University's Electrical and Computer engineering program in 2007. Lots of other really dorky things happened to me before that, like dropping out of high school to go to university, getting an Eagle Scout award, and getting 6th in a state-wide algebra competition. I have an affinity for hopscotch.
