Let the Madness Begin!

And no, I'm not talking about St. Patrick's Day although that does remind me that my house is completely devoid of Guinness. Nor am I talking about the almost foot of snow we could get tomorrow (God must've saved up all the snow we didn't get in December for March). I'm talking about March Madness, the NCAA men's basketball tournament aka the only time I care about men's college hoops. I entered an online pool this year. The Hun's pick to win it all? The Fightin' Illini.

Sneak Peak at IE7

Microsoft Watch dug up some dirt on Internet Explorer 7. The good news? It will include tabbed browsing and full PNG support so we can throw away GIFs forever. The bad? It seems like the days of IE's half-assed CSS support will still be with us. While nothing is set in stone, MS seems inclined to support some but not all of the CSS2 standard. IE7 will be available for WinXP, Windows Server 2003, and Longhorn--assuming that it is ever released. Still as a part-time web developer, I'm glad to see that IE is getting an update. IE6 is looking very long in the tooth. Thanks Slashdot.

"Get Firefox" Button

You may have noticed that a "Get Firefox" button is now on the menu on the left side of all of our pages. While I've tried to keep the layout of The Haus as browser-agnostic as possible, I prefer Firefox since it offers the best standards-compliance in the business. Interested in trying Firefox? Click on that button and tell them that The Haus sent you!

Billy "Wicked" Wilson, Dead at 33

GamingGroove announced that their founder (as well as the founder of Voodoo Extreme), Billy "Wicked" Wilson, is dead at the age of 33. The cause of death has not been announced, but there were always rumors of hard living on his part. Billy's sense of humor was, shall we say, an acquired taste but no one can deny that Voodoo Extreme was one of the more popular gaming sites back in the day. It just makes me feel old since I am almost four years his senior.
