Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Maybe in the future we will learn what Thomas Riebl is able to do when he doesn't try to betray people.
all-inkl (meaning something like "all inclusive") is my web hoster. I was asking them whether they could apply some filter 'cause it's no no fun to download several hundred megs of Windows virus mails just for fun every day.
They said no, but I could define my own filter rules if I desire to do so - and pay for it.
I didn't want to pay.
Today is the second day after the call, and the second day with less than 3 virus mails. Impressing. I am asking myself what more all-inkl has started to filter, or what else happened... They haven't said a single word...
- 276 spam mails since yesterday, 7pm (making 15 per hour).
- Anti-spam scripts work less effective than ever, thanks to Verisign's Sitefinder.
- In my personal mailbox, six pieces of another Winodws virus,
- Reading heise.de: Just another Winodws hole. Again.
- Reading spiegel.de: German politicians lose control, are badly prepared and without any ambitions.
- Heard on the street: G.W.Bush is planning another war. Again. Which country it will be this time? Not sure.
- Met a neighbor: She has lost her job. She says her husband is unemployed for over six months now.
- World bank is said to have predicted Germany to have economy grow by 0%.
Oh happy day!
Uncool guy, and a clear boo from here.
The Linux developers have a legal right to make use of the code under that license. No violation of SCO's copyright or trade secrets is taking place.
In this case, there was an error in the Linux developer's process (at SGI), and we lucked out that it wasn't worse. It turns out that we have a legal right to use the code in question, but it doesn't belong in Linux and has been removed.
Really, I have no idea how he can devaluate code for some questionable reasons, giving SCO a wonderful chance to misquote him.
Bruce is not exactly a programmer genius, and for whatever reason he thinks other people's code has been erroneously integrated into the Linux kernel, it is in no way a technical or juridical reason. It can only be the odor of moral malfunction...
It is the perfect comment; it will later on be used at the courts, as it is a declaration of moral failure of the Linux community.
Thank you Bruce. Next time think before you talk.
After all, I've got too much karma anyway...
Or, do you really believe you will be reborn in a higher existence if you're hoarding your Slashdot karma?
I can tell you: NO, in the best case you will be reborn as Cowboy Neal, which is actually not the best case.
Probably my uplink's broken or my ISP has introduced some new radical filters - filtering everything. In fact, I have no regular email, too...
