Our not so little girl turns 2 today! So far we’ve had a sleep-in, breakfast and played with the birthday presents that Mummy and Daddy bought her – a Doodle Pro (because we love drawing) and some Mega Bloks (because we enjoy stacking!). Mummy has also measured her height – 87cm.

All in all I don’t think we’ve done too badly. Catherine is 2 years old tomorrow and she had her first hamburger yesterday. On a Wednesday fortnight during the school term, we head off to MOPS early in the morning (we are usually there by 8:15am) and don’t get home until about 12:30pm/1pm. More often than not, we’ll pick up something to eat on the way home as both of us are pretty hungry by then and neither of us have the patience to wait for me to prepare lunch!
This is Catherine’s first experience with a hamburger – she didn’t do too badly, finishing half of it and all of her chips plus a few of mine!
I should probably point out that I emptied all the Coke out of the cup and filled it with cold water instead. We’re not *that* bad! She still hasn’t had any softdrink and very watered down juice only a couple of times in her 2 years. Not bad, I say!
Went to the obstetrician for a routine visit on Monday afternoon and he gave me the results of my Oral Glucose Challenge Test. It was normal which means that this time around, I don’t have gestational diabetes! Yay!
On the other hand though, at 90/65 my blood pressure was on the low side of normal, especially for me. While pregnant with Catherine, it was 110/70 almost the whole time. Also, I’m still feeling nauseous and dizzy etc and still haven’t put on any weight after losing the initial 7kg through vomiting during the first trimester. Scott calls it “Jo’s Weight loss program”. Charming Yep, this second pregnancy is definitely very different to the first! Oh, and there’s 9 weeks to go today!
However it’s important to ensure web applications can still run Ok in IE6 because it still owns significant market share. The actual percentage market share is difficult to determine, but the following statistics from the W3Schools site had 39.8% of visitors running IE6 in February 2007.
Given that it is mostly technical folk visiting W3Schools.com this percentage is probably on the low side, given that technical users are more likely using IE7 or alternative browsers such as Firefox. The statistics for January and February 2007 below.
Given that IE6 is still out there it’s important to still test your web application for this browser. The simplest way to do is run IE6 standalone – nothing to install just run the executable!
I have read of solutions where you can install IE6 and IE7 together but then there were comments about install issues. Or, you can run a Virtual PC image that has IE6 installed – which is a fair amount of effort and Virtual PC is resource hungry. The simplest solution I’ve found so far is here, and you can download the IE6 standalone version from here.
IE6 – 39.8%
IE5 – 2.5%
Firefox – 31.2%
Mozilla – 1.4%
Safari – 1.7%
IE7 – 13.3%
IE6 – 42.3%
IE5 – 3.0%
Firefox – 31.0%
Mozilla – 1.5%
Safari – 1.7%
Opera – 1.5%
