Trying to get firebird to compile in FreeBSD. Not trivial. Current maintainer no longer reachable.

Working on the eposix manual. Hopefully a beta real soon now.

mrorganic, LOL that COM works badly with C++. Who wants to use that language anyway? I've had enough buffer overflows, thank you very much.

badvogato, universal free health care was tried in the USSR. Like all socialist schemes, it failed. Capitalism doesn't have the concept of efficiency in the sense you describe. And that's why it works, and socialism doesn't. If you're really sick, do you really care if your healthcare system is optimized for global efficiency, at the cost of local, your health, efficiency? The only person who can take care of your health, is you. You don't want the government to take care of your healt. It's you who decides how much money you want to spend on it, if at all.
