If you've ever dreamed of marrying a video-game character, having your ashes put in a computer, or tying the knot on the deck of the USS Enterprise, you're not alone.

IE6 Funeral

Apparently funerals aren't just for mourning the loss of actual people. Internet Explorer 6 was finally laid to rest--quickly and easily, with a simple update. But not everybody was willing to let go so easily. Aten Design Group, a Denver, Colorado, company, held a mock funeral for the browser. And it wasn't just a Website-only memorial--about 100 people attended to pay their respects. Those who couldn't attend in person sent regards--one beautiful bouquet arrived with the note: "Thanks for the good times IE6. See you all at MIX where we'll show a little piece of IE heaven. --the Internet Explorer Team @ Microsoft"
