Hi everyone. I, like the majority of us web developer's, despise internet explorer. So on my site, i want to put something in just for the fun of it that detects IE and says something. Right now i have just a plain alert asking to please change to a different web browser. I want to have it say something like, P.S. this web browser will self-destruct in 5 seconds.

Mid last week, Intel and Matsushita announced that they are working on an 8 hour notebook battery solution featuring Intel's low-power consumption technology powered by Matsushita's lithium-ion battery solutions. Currently, (pardon the pun) laptops range anywhere from 3 - 6 hours, depending on what the users's power settings are. Users can try to extend battery life of a laptop computer by controlling hardware settings, such as how bright the display is, perhaps slowing down the CPU so that it uses less power, and powering down the hard drives so that they are not spinning needlessly. Others might remove their CD-ROM …
