I removed the bit in the news box about the LOUIS upgrade as it is over now (I think). Since the news box is so empty all the time, I added a reminder that IE8 is out. Not everyone may be aware of it, and having the latest software makes for better browsing. IE8 is better than IE7, but it still does a lot of things that annoy me and I really don't like it. Yet, people like my brother still insist on using IE despite all evidence that it's no good. So we might as well remind people to update it.
It won't be there for long, I think.
