Backwards Compatibility

Thursday, September 18th, 2008


I just got the email I’ve been dreading: A client using IE6 is having trouble with a web page I created while using IE7. Of course I upgraded to IE7 months ago (when I was told that the site would only need to support IE7); and I’m sure everyone knows that you can’t run both IE6 and IE7 side-by-side on the same machine. The only answers are to use IE6 on a different computer, or install a virtual machine with an extra copy of XP with IE6. What a pain!

But wait, a bit of googling revealed to me that the IE Dev team feels our pain so much that they’ve released a free (for developers) version of Virtual PC 2004 along with various OS/Browser images. You can get:

  • Windows XP SP3 with IE6
  • Windows XP SP2 with IE7
  • Windows XP SP3 with IE8 Beta 2
  • Vista with IE7

Thank you, IE Dev Team!

Donkey Work

After fruitless efforts into alternate configuration setups for Garden, I’ve been spending some time doing more trivial but necessary development. I started working on some ideas I’ve had for animated “progress” images, and I finally got to work on the javascript behind the menu UI component (yes, there will be some minor jQuery behind the menu – but it will also be non-js compatible).

I have to say, there is nothing that can renew your love for server-side programming like client-side programming. I’m sure some of you will know exactly what I mean.

I’m Back!

Back from vacation and very glad to be. Ready to start kicking butt.

What’d I miss?
