Hey there, it was great working with you. We haven't spoke much in the last 10 years because life has become busy, but it was great to have worked with you in the early days, getting Slashcode 1.0 and then 2.0 released, trying to find ways to cache before memcached, removing the variable "$shit" from the code-- those were the days. I know it must be incredibly hard to come to a close for something you created. Good luck with whatever you do!

Submission + - Oracle backs out of the MySQL Conference-> 1 1

An anonymous reader writes: Along side its move to to scuttle OpenSolaris, remove itself from the Open Office foundation, sue Google over its use of Java, Oracle has now removed itself from the MySQL Conference and is now pushing MySQL users to attend its own user group conference that it funds that has been placed on the same week as the O'Reilly conference. Is there any evidence left that Oracle has nothing but hostile intentions toward open source at this point?
