    Ok so, Im a n00b when it comes to Javascript and the wonderful (which I keep meaning to learn) jquery… So I am going to ask you clever and wonderful people.

    I am looking to create a browser specific popup for people using IE6, that wont let them view the site unless they upgrade… maybe that sounds a little harsh… but IE6 is so bad, it needs flushing off the face of the planet.

    So im going to take a stand.

    My idea is to have a kind of lightbox effect, with a small bit of text and links to the IE7 updater and Firefox. If you connect to the site with IE6, you get the screen up enlightening you.

    Now im not looking for a finished solution, but if anyone could point me in the direction of code I could hack to make it work that would be great. I could do it with PHP I suppose, as an if statement at the top of the index… mmm if anyone has any ideas about that too… please speak up :)
