A final end to IE/MAC

Web Standards reports

Microsoft has announced that they will cease all support for IE/Mac as of December 31, 2005 and will cease all distribution of the software on January 31, 2006.

While IE/Mac has become something of a red-headed stepchild in the past couple years, it has a proud history of standards-related achievements, most of which were the result of now-WaSP, then Microsoftie Tantek Çelik.

This milestone doesn’t actually mean much for working web developers — how much effort to put into supporting a given browser is best determined by audience share, not whether the browser is currently ‘supported’ or not. Nevertheless, it’s a bittersweet reminder of the creeping obsolescence of what was arguably the single piece of software most responsible for kicking off the CSS layout revolution.

Amber and friends at Qoöl tonight!

From Tanteks Blog

“This is not one of those “ladies night” line-ups. This is one of those “some-of-San-Francisco’s-best-and-most beautiful-DJs” line-ups featuring Kat, Tamo, Seraphim, Forest Green, Amber, Anita Lofton and the fabulous Audio Angel. There’s no dodging these beats. Suggestion: Bring a spare pair of shoes in case you burn holes in soles of the ones you’re wearing.”

This was an awsome night I miss the bay area so much anyone up for heading to the Bay area next month if so hit me!
