Today, Monday July 20th 2009, marks the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, more commonly known as the Moon Landing. It was on today that families huddled around their televisions and got a glimpse of history, as Niel Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the moon. The Moon Landing was a major moment in mankind's history. Man had finally journeyed past low-Earth orbit and into space, officially exploring a new frontier.
Today names like Niel Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin are famous in all households. The Apollo missions, five other shuttles reached the moon after Apollo 11, live on in fame. They inspired a generation of people and make astronaut a profession that many dreamed to become. The moon landing was a truly remarkable step in our potential as a species. So much so that we decided to create a t-shirt for the event. Check it out here.
We'll leave you with the famous quote found on the stainless steal plaque left behind on the Moon:
"Here men from planet Earth first set foot on the Moon. July 1969 A.D. We came in peace for all mankind."
The ancient (at least technologically speaking) Internet Explorer version six is making news recently, mainly because of its ineptitude. It was released in 2001 and soon became the most widely used Internet browser in the world. IE6 has often been criticized for its lack of security and its slow response to issuing patches that close certain security loop holes.
IE6 is the standard browser that comes with most Windows Operating Systems. It is often considered slow and its lack of tabbed browsing makes it a less than desirable browsing option. It also doesn't read the newest version of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets, a web-based language that makes websites look pretty) and it reads images differently than newer browsers, which means certain websites won't look good on IE6. With the ever evolving Internet, IE6 has become remarkable out-of-date. The only problem is that millions of people still use this browser, since it is their default browser.
Recently, many popular websites such as Facebook, Digg and YouTube have announced that they are going to stop supporting IE6. If you still use IE6 it might be time to upgrade. Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari and Internet Explorer 7 are all solid options.
Death to IE6, it's time to move on. Get your t-shirt here.
