IE9 doesn't seem to understand background-color

I have recently created my first website using HTML5. I have used some CSS3 attributes like box-shadow and border-radius, and they render correctly in all browsers except IE.
IE is retarded. To enable some HTML5 features in IE I used this code snippet:
<!--[if IE]>
<script src="" ></script>
While IE8 correctly positioned the elements, it still doesn't support CSS3. Below is a preview of IE8:
However, IE9 preview, which brags about it's HTML5 support didn't even render the background-color correctly. What a shame. Surely it's a preview, but it should be better and not worse than IE8. On the bright side, the rest of the CSS, even the CSS3 tags, rendered correctly. See the rounded borders and shadow (looks like a glow) around the image:


I am hoping that Microsoft fixes this bug, because regardless this bug the work they have done with hardware acceleration and HTML5 support is amazing.
All other browsers, including Opera, Firefox 3.6 and Chrome  rendered everything correctly. FF 3.0 and Chrome 3 rendered the layout correctly but had only partial CSS3 support.
Here is what the website should look like (Chrome 7 dev):

The Increased Addictiveness of Today's Video Games

This is a guest post by Miles Walker, a freelance writer and blogger who usually  compares car insurance  deals over at CarinsuranceComparison.Org. His most recent review looked at the best  car insurance quotes . Video games have always held some addiction, but now more than ever that addiction is growing. People are spending more time than ever playing the games, and game designers are constantly finding new ways keep it that way. Their efforts have a been a complete success, and some games have true addicts, addicts who play 24 hours a week or more. Visual enhancements Video games have come a long way since a certain duo of Italian plumbers started showing up in people's houses in the late 1980s. By leaps and bounds, video game graphics have become alarmingly sophisticated. Each graphical improvement increased a game's possibilities and added more depth to video games. Designers began thriving on this depth, making games with more achievements, unlocks, levels an

Project planning in a text file

Whenever you work on a project it is important to be able to plan it ahead of time. This holds true for small and big project, from planning a trip to the spa to building a spaceship. The small project plans can be maintained in you thoughts while bigger ones require tools to help you see the big-picture of the project and manage task at a lower level. There are projects which start with a fully prepared plan and projects which pivot overnight, thus invalidating any original plan. For the latter flexibility is very important, and tools like Trello offer a great solution because they can be adjusted to fit your project. However, it may happen sometimes that the project starts adjusting to the tool or that you still want to maintain a bigger picture of the main points of the project. You may also need to produce a rough development schedule to serve as a long term road-map. I have prototyped a tool (and defined a workflow) which allows you to plan such projects. To better understa

A more confusing Internet with .brand TLDs

A few months ago, I wrote a post proposing to remove top level domains from the internet, as many people don't understand why we need TLDs. At the time I didn't know either. Removing TLDs would simplify browsing an possibly increase security by reducing phishing sites that make use of URL similarity to gain visits to potentially dangerous websites, or sites filled with ads. The ICANN, the body that manages Internet names, has for years been preparing something different but that produces a slightly similar effect than removing TLDs: allowing brands to register their own TLDs . The proposal may soon be approved has been approved . Brands would therefore be able to register their own TLDs. Google could register .google a potentially powerful TLD for their services, like Google Maps: instead of Brand TLD don't improve short urls like, but seem to be effective for use in subdomains. Registering a .<brand-name> TLD will cost
