    Groklaw’s connection to IBM?

    Oh my, why did Groklaw censor the article Groklaw's New Group Project -- The Timeline Project? Was it because of its content like the following paragraphs?

    "I talked this over with a number of individuals, including Eben Moglen, of FSF, Eric Raymond, Richard Stallman, Dan Ravicher of PubPat Foundation, and a select group of Groklaw regulars and many others at various companies and organizations, and I also interfaced with Daniel Egger at Open Source Risk Management. You will remember the article about his project. The upshot of it was that there was universally a response that this was a worthy idea, useful to pursue. Daniel Egger, as it turns out, was already working on a related project, as you know, related to offering vendor-neutral indemnification, so that users can get low-cost protection while retaining the freedom to continue modifying the code.

    "So I am collaborating with Daniel Egger at Open Source Risk Management and offering them my full support by coordinating the collaborative development of the timeline and the living history. I realized interacting with readers on Grokaw that if each one just contributes what he remembers, all the details, we will be able to go through it and find what matters legally. It will represent a legal barrier to future SCO copycats, because no experts they could ever come up with will be able to counter the combined evidence we will amass. That's the plan. Are you with me?"

    Nuffer apparently on summer vacation

    Can anyone remind me what are the arguments for existence of Judge Nuffer (if any)?

    I do not say he is not a real person. However I do not think his existence would make any difference for this case (or all other cases on his portfolio I have heard of).

  • "Last week, it transpired that the big cable companies were bankrolling fake consumer groups like Broadband for America and The American Consumer Institute. These "independent consumer advocacy groups" are, in truth, nothing of the sort, and instead represent the interests of its benefactors, in the fight against net neutrality. If that wasn't bad enough, VICE is now reporting that several of the real community groups (oh, and an Ohio bed-and-breakfast) that were signed up as supporters of Broadband for America were either duped into joining, or were signed up to the cause without their consent or knowledge."

    Does anyone here really believe that the cable companies would do this?

    Any thoughts here? I am not sure myself, but the following comes to mind:

    1) Windows NT 4.0: brought some security to windows. Fairly stable. Business-like interface. Low resource requirements.

    2) Windows 2000: my favorite windows ever. Stable. Business-like interface. Higher system requirement than NT 4.0, but still not too bad.

    3) Ubuntu 10.04: the last version of Ubuntu that didn't suck. Fast boot. Great interface.

    4) Coherent 4.2: ran just like UNIX. Ran great on a 386SX with 20MB of disk space and 4MB of RAM. Great documentation. Great system for learning UNIX. Only cost $99.

    5) Debian: you do not have to download anything you don't want. Run with whatever WM/DE, or none at all, all the same to Debian. Option of super-stable to bleeding-edge. Runs on many platforms. Do not have to re-install to upgrade. I am running CentOS 6.4 to get caught up on Red Hat - IMO: Debian package management puts Red Hat to shame.

    6) iOS: gotta give credit where it's due. Smooth, and fast, right from the beginning. Took Android some time to catch up.

    Oh my, thing is, how can we know that the NSA won't compromise it (or hasn't compromised it)?

    Lordy, Lordy, PJ spilled MathFox's name too!

    Oh my, this Columbia professor does have some problems.

    It's disgusting what he wrote apparently from his computer at the university:

    "I would like to know what are other peoples' favorite masturbation scenes. I think I might nominate Stephanie Rage and Dana Lynn in a collector's item from Parliament Video called "As+ Parade". I am compiling an index of solos for like-minded enthusiasts. If you have a contribution to suggest, please let me know by mail or post. If you are seeking references to such scenes by particular actresses, I may be able to help."

    I wonder if the university knows about his behavior.

    Lordy, Lordy.

  • Did PJ do it purpose? I would assume MF would have preferred to keep his full name private. But PJ wrote in 2004:

    "My volunteer Webmaster, PR, switched Groklaw to Geeklog software and wrote some needed features to facilitate collaborative work."

    Oh PJ, why did she learn about being discrete so late!

    And I thought Groklaw was written by a "61-year-old Jehovah's Witness who" lived "in a shabby genteel garden apartment in desperate need of an interior decorator on a heavily trafficked commercial road at 304 North Central Avenue in Hartsdale, New York."

    But no, Groklaw's articles were written by a group of Linux techno-troopers:


    I always imagined PJ in a beautiful red dress and now this will never happen.

    I'm so sad!
