Evening Reading: A New Warrior Enters The Ring

As advertised, I will be taking over the nightly ER duties from Garnett Lee. I haven't yet decided exactly what I want to use the space for, but tonight I'll take the opportunity to introduce myself.

I've been a Shacker, well lurker, since 1999. I finally registered in 2004 while I was still in college and eventually ended up getting a job at G4TV.com in 2007. The opportunity to work on Shacknews.com came about and I, thankfully, landed the job. I couldn't be happier to join the team and look forward to contributing regularly to the site's content.

If you have any suggestions for what you'd like to see (or see return) to Evening Reading, just drop it in the comments or send me a Shackmessage.

Also, if you use that Twitter-thing, you can follow me here. I promise it isn't just a bunch of tweets about going to the bathroom or what I'm having for dinner (lasagna).

        Only like 5% of my visitors use IE6, sadly in that 5% is my boss :(

        I swear to fucking god I spend a third of my time trying to make things work in IE6.

      Mourn not. For it still lives on in the hearts of businesses and average users alike. IE6 may not have been in the ranks of its peers but it was very popular, often exceeding marginal bounds to almost twice that of its more notable counterparts. Refusing to fall inline it remains most memorable for its bizarre quirks and sometimes annoying refusal to work within the bounds of "the box". Even in its final days it lacked transparency and often required the help of others to show its true potential. IE6 may you rest in peace burning in hell as you suffer through the hours upon hours of torture and pain that you've caused developers and designers over the years
