Browser restrictions and settings: This website is not currently supported by IE6. If you are using IE6 you will not see the contents of the site. Please perform a free and safe upgrade using the link below. Depending on your connection speed it shouldn’t take more then 5 minutes to do this at the most.Download Internet Explorer 7

Why we don’t support IE6: IE6 was released in 2001 and was replaced in 2004 with IE7 – so it’s very old.  It has been listed by PC World as 8th place in the World’s Worst Technologies list due to its many security, accessibility and usability failings. Currently there are 146 security issues with 22 still not having patches. From 2010, Microsoft will cease supporting IE6 altogether. If you can upgrade, you should!
