I use Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 6 to run Adobe Flash, in a sandbox, it’s they only place that I run Flash. (If I’m going to be unsafe, I might as well be really exposed.) Today I saw for the first time during a slow load that they are dropping support for IE6.

On March 13, we are dropping support for your browser.

Slashdot | MS Security VP Mike Nash Replies

My second story is about my grandmother, Estelle (I am 42 years old and not too proud to tell you that I call her Nanny). Nanny got her first PC in 1992 soon after I came to Microsoft. In 1995 she got her second PC — I was excited about Windows 95 and so was she. In late 2001, I sent a mail to all of my family members telling them that I would only help them with their PC if they were running Windows XP, so my grandmother ran out and bought an XP machine.

So Mike Nash calls his grandmother Nanny, I’m 30 and call mine Nana, I’d get a smack if I called her violent Violet, he also forces her to buy a new computer so she can run Windows XP… That’s one way to earn money… (Nevermind I’m just being sarcastic…)
