We only met Sir Patrick once and I can completely agree with Dr Kakula's comments. The hospitality was truly inspirational even for complete strangers, I know he'll be sorely missed by the people of Selsey and the amateur astronomy community who he had supported right till the end.
Any IT administrator for a secure site that does not have detailed plans for moving away from IE6 to a secure standards based browser should be fired for pure incompetence. Everyone knew a very long time ago IE6 was very insecure and they new they would HAVE to move away. Yes, the web services would have to be updated and preferably made standards based and not lock themselves into this situation.
There is no excuse now to say we didn't know this would happen or that there wasn't time or the budget. That is what the job is about and that is why there are a lot of secure environments already upgraded.
