Senators Ask EC To Let Oracle-Sun Deal Go Through

skoaldipper Re:Glad I am not the only one believing that... (183 comments)

Peel the layers off the orange. Sun owns MySQL. Oracle wants to own Sun. :. Oracle owns Sun owns MySQL.

We can argue the merits, both pro and con, for that inheritance of ownership upon MySQL's future, but I think in the end, the EU should take its time in understanding Mega King Kong Industry like acquisitions and their effect upon creative open source market influences and alternatives.

The one thing this filthy American pig can appreciate, as I stare at my AT&T bill and ponder how humpty dumpty Ma Bell was put back together again, and why I still can't get FiOS, is that the EU tells King Kong NIMBY - to the benefit of emerging open source service markets there. Besides, Kerry, Hatch, Feinstein, and Boxer are probably the worst consultants we have on American Industry health. If those 4 alone are for it, I say let this merger die a quick and merciful death. Instinct alone from these 4's track record tells me both sides of the pond will be the better for it.

Student Sues University Because She's Unemployable

skoaldipper Re:Depressing, but not uncommon (1251 comments)

trust me, you don't want to be a carpenter.

Maybe you should try rough framing instead; spitting worm dirt, jalapeno eating contests con sus amigo Mexicanos, nail gun fights, and the satisfaction of throwing up a house in one day from a bare slab. Now, that's living brother. That right there will put some lead in your pencil.

Meteorite Hunters Find the West Texas Fireball

skoaldipper Re:West, Texas, not West Texas (64 comments)

To all my fellow Cezhs in Texas also reared off Gerber kolaches and Shiner from a plastic nipple, you'll want to make these pilgramiges somtime in your lifetime; Schulenberg, Caldwell, Ennis, and West (downtown), in that order, all in Texas. And perchance you happen upon a store carrying "sausage kolaches"; that is an abomination to any pure blooded Czech. Flee for your life, and your heritage. "sausage kolaches" are a myth, much like "stimulus spending" or "Crisco light". True Czechs call "sausage kolaches" pigs in a blanket. Politely leave the store, come back, and watch the steam sizzle off the door as you sprinkle holy water upon it. Uz nic, dekuji.

Get Ready For ... Nanosoccer!

skoaldipper Re:Should that be millisoccer ? (89 comments)

Let me know when they have a 30 x 30 micron playing field. That will be nanosoccer.

Programming of the new Arena begins in 2009. My user Alan assures me he will do everything he can to save my register from being bitdozed by an old MCP Eminent Domain program.
