Comment: This is the best way to get people off of IE6! (Score 3, Interesting) 142

Designers win, because they use one design (compliant, too!), for all browsers. Users win, because everyone sees the same design/version/look.

Best yet, when you pile on a library that fixes CSS3 (this article), and one to fix the CSS box model ( ), and then another to fix the png transparency issue ( ), and another to add canvas support ( ), and another ...

Then you explain that everyone will see the same design (yay!), and people using older browsers will experience a VERY SLOW page load. That is why they should upgrade to a more up to date browser.

+ - Saddam Hussein Dead

An anonymous reader writes "Well it seems that Saddam Hussein, the deposed Iraqi ruler, has been executed by his own people:

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) — Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein has been executed, a witness said. "Saddam's body is in front me," said an official in the prime minister's office when CNN telephoned. "It's over." In the background, Shiite chanting could be heard. When asked about the chanting, the official said "These are employees of the prime minister's office and government chanting in celebration." The witness reported that celebrations broke out after Hussein was dead, and that there was "dancing around the body."

+ - "Indiana Jone 4" coming in 2008

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "George Lucas said Friday that filming of the long-awaited "Indiana Jones 4" movie will begin next year. Harrison Ford, who appeared in the three earlier flicks, the last one coming in 1989, is set to star again. Lucas said he and Steven Spielberg recently finalized the script for the film. "It's going to be fantastic. It's going to be the best one yet," the 62-year-old filmmaker said during a break from preparing for his duties as grand marshal of Monday's Rose Parade. Exact film locations have not been decided yet, but Lucas said part of the movie will be shot in Los Angeles. The fourth chapter of the "Indiana Jones" saga, which will hit theaters in May 2008, has been in development for over a decade with several screenwriters taking a crack at the script, but it only recently gained momentum."
