Posted on Sunday September 25, 2022

Tomorrow (Tuesday) is a special day; 39 years since the message (announcement) below, so next year it's 40 (a major time leap in the context of software development; not much stuff lasts this long)

⚓ Post #3: Microsoft is Trying to Eliminate POP3 and IMAP for E-mail (Attack on Commodity or Standard Protocols)

Posted on Sunday September 25, 2022

Microsoft is trying to decommoditise (read: control) E-mail by shutting out people who use standard protocols; how long have we got before E-mail becomes a surveillance-intensive walled garden?

⚓ Post #5: YouTube (Alphabet Gulag) Keeps Censoring Videos About Free Software and GNU/Linux

Posted on Saturday September 24, 2022

⚓ Post #10: [Meme] Getting Promoted (or Hired/Recruited/Absorbed Directly Into Top Management) by Knowing “The F***ing President”

Posted on Friday September 23, 2022

The EPO‘s own numbers indicate that as a female it's incredibly hard to get promoted at the EPO; the insiders’ joke is, you need to be a former colleague of Benoît Battistelli/António Campinos (or even a spouse) to get promoted

⚓ Post #11: According to EPO Data, Women Have No Place at the EPO (Unless They Fancy Being Underpaid)

Posted on Friday September 23, 2022

The European Patent Office, accused by a former president who was female of an “alphamale” issue, treats women poorly; incidentally, she wasn’t just the only female president in a ~25 year period but also the only non-French president in that same period (EPO diversity is a sad farce)

⚓ Post #16: Microsoft Will Soon be Unlisted in Netcraft’s Web Survey (Due to Minuscule, Negligible Market Share)

Posted on Thursday September 22, 2022

A few hours ago this was released by Netcraft; it seems clear that Netcraft’s tables already omit Microsoft in all except 2, where Microsoft is placed last and rapidly loses share (it’ll fall out of sight soon)
