IE6 Countdown

March 4th, 2011 No comments

You wont find many a web developer around who doesn’t hate IE (and in particular, IE6). It’s buggy, doesn’t support newer technologies and exhibits all kinds of problems which don’t appear in other browsers.

Despite cross browser testing, it’s a regular occurrence for users to report problems that you can’t re-produce in your own browser.

IE6 is in particular old and pain to maintain and a lot of sites are now not supporting it – often serving up a standard style sheet which gives the user the content but without the site styling.

It comes as a pleasant treat for Microsoft to actively want to kill off IE6 and launching the IE6 Countdown site.

Steve Webster makes and interesting point though – IE9 isn’t supported on Windows XP, which is still very much in use. Therefore the latest version of IE that XP users can have is IE8, which is still a 2 year old browser.

Oh well, at least it’s a glimmer of hope! – the day IE6 dies will be a joyous day all round.

What I dont quite understand though is where they are getting the data from….

Virgin Media are making some changes:

- A few price increases

- Free online storage/backup and digital prints – called “V Stuff” (coming soon)

- 50mb broadband

- They will be upgrading 2mb users to 10mb

I’ll certainly be checking out the “V Stuff” when it comes as i’m currently paying $5/month for online backup so i’ll post a review here when i’ve tried it.

Adding Your Facebook Status Feed to WordPress (via RSS)

March 19th, 2009 5 comments

There are loads of snippets on the web about how to add your facebook status to your wordpress blog by using an RSS feed.

However, it looks like Facebook have made a load of changes to the interface and I can’t find the mini-feed page anywhere, which has the link on.

Luckily, this blog post gave the link for it.

So, to get an RSS feed of your Facebook status, you just log into Facebook, go to this link:

http://www.new.facebook.com/minifeed.php?filter=11

and click on the “My Status” link on the right hand side.

You can then add that RSS feed to the right hand side of your WordPress blog, if required!
