Another Tuesday

By , May 20, 2008 11:47 pm

Been working on websites for part of the day. Set up a LAMP server on the linux box here at home the other day and have finally gotten around to doing setting up some test sites on it. Got one ComicPress site about ready to transfer to the live site. Much easier/quicker to do the work here rather than ftping it all to a site online. Got one bleeding edge wordpress setup going too. Nothing on it, just a test site to see what will work with 2.6 and what won’t. Learning a bit more about how it (wordpress) works in the process too.

Face is better. Things are settling down inside pretty well. Most of the swelling is gone, and the cuts have healed over pretty well. Still chewing a bit easy but that’s doing better too.

Long day and night. Gonna hit the sack and try to get a bit more done tomorrow. Till then… πŸ˜‰

Microsoft: we listen to broadcasters, not customers

Microsoft: we listen to broadcasters, not customers – Boing Boing

Danny sez, “A Microsoft spokesperson told CNet today that ‘Microsoft included technologies in Windows based on rules set forth by the (Federal Communications Commission). As part of these regulations, Windows Media Center fully adheres to the flags used by broadcasters and content owners to determine how their content is distributed and consumed.’ Do they really mean that they’re obeying the broadcast flag that courts and Congress rejected as being executive overreach by the FCC? The ones they have no obligation to follow?”

This is about the best reason I have yet seen to ditch Microsoft and move to Linux or Unix. I’d say more but it would just be Microsoft bashing and they are doing a fine job of that all by themselves…
