I was thinking today that it would be terribly funny if Microsoft got caught for some sort of accounting fraud, which seems to be all the rage in the US media (even here in Canada, Nortel is getting hit with a class action suit). After a year of hearing how Linux is bad for the economy, how Linux is a "cancer", and how Linux is "un-American", I think I would get a quick laugh out of it.

Still haven't finished the questionnaire for Biella, the anthropologist that I met at DebConf. I wanted to have it finished by Sunday, but it has just been one of those weeks. Hopefully I'll have some time tonight to answer the two remaining questions (which are pretty long and open-ended) and send it off to her.

Since talking with kmcmartin at OLS about starting a Security SIG within OCLUG, I have been seriously considering it. This was proposed more than a year ago and everyone seemed to like the idea, but it was never carried forward for some odd reason (which I don't want to get into). There still seems to be some interest, so it could very well be proposed again. Some ideas are floating around now, and hopefully they can be properly organized this time.
