Australia too charges income tax from money I earn abroad - namely the difference between the obscenely high Australian taxes and the much lesser taxes I pay in most other countries, even if I earned the money while working and living in those other countries

shhhh! You're new to America bashing aren't you?

So if Microsoft moves to Canada, does that mean they'll at least say "sorry" every time they do something bad?

Well, I do sincerely apologize for my unkind last statement. That was not compassionate and I suspect like most people you have redeeming qualities.

But in 2014 I am amazed at the bigotry expressed against people who vote differently. That is very ignorant. It's gotten to the point where people convince themselves anyone who votes ______ is pure of heart and and anyone who votes ________ is incapable of human decency. It takes a lot of work for political parties to make us that dumb.

This is also a good reminder that anyone can have a modern web browser.

Now that browsers are auto-updating this is a good time for us as developers to weed out all the non-updating browsers. I've not been a big fan of browser exclusion but after waiting so many years for all the garbage versions of IE to die (<= IE 10) I've become a grumpy old man. You can have notices appear when an outdated browser is found and link the user to a better life. e.g. http://browser-update.org/

If someone actually prefers to be left out, that should not hold everyone else back anymore.
