Humor BBC News reports "Mark your diaries for 4 March because in Denver the funeral arrangements are well underway for the planned passing that day of Internet Explorer 6". There's a phobia of being buried alive but I think in this case, it's the living that are all too quick to be shoveling the dirt over as IE6 doesn't officially die until 2014 when Microsoft pull the life-support.

If the Mayans are right, the world's going to end on 12/22/2012 anyway... so no IE6 until 2014!

Incorrect. The correct date is 2020, revealed last year when they recalculated the Mayan calendar.

It doesn't really matter, the world isn't going to end, a new cycle will start. That is all. Things will change, but things are constantly changing.

No, the world will end on December 31, 2010.

That is the date that the calendar on my wall ends.
