ante meridian, EDT (edited post meridian, EDT)
Just a verbum sapienti: I personally highly recommend against ever trying to have any sort of relationship with Remote Communications, Inc. other than as a user of their products (such as mod_gzip). I am speaking personally, and not wearing any hat except that and my Apache (and open-source) developer beanie.
I have moved the full rant off Advogato to my own site.
Why do I bother posting this? Primarily because I want to set the record straight before someone tries to cockeye it. Secondarily, so that other developers may not have to undergo the same crap I did in coming to these conclusions.
