The Masked Infringer

From The Register: SQL Server developers face huge royalty bills. How many, how much? Geez, that's scary, although I don't think I've been working on an Infringing Combination by their definition. What's next? Will someone be coming forward with a patent on storing data in a database? (Also, Microsoft signed a lousy contract with Timeline there, not protecting SQL Server developers.)

To the person or people involved in the DDoS attack on Livejournal, you've made your point... about how annoying you can be. One day, your favorite websites will get DDoSed and we'll see how you like them apples. (Of course, there's always the possibility that Livejournal is their favorite website and they're pissed off because they got banned or they don't like the posting limits proposed in news.)

Weather for this weekend: Tonight - rain, Saturday - rain, Saturday night - rain, Sunday - rain. That, combined with the 1-2 feet of snow still on the ground, means it probably won't be a great time to do some geocaching but I'll see how it goes. Already have the GPS and Handspring Visor loaded up with data and the snowshoes are in the car. :)
