  • Hypothetical moral question..

    If the board would make a wrong decision based on your lies, the company can be killed by it. And so will you if you lie.

    You have to make sure that when you leave, they notice somebody important was lost.

  • Hypothetical moral question..

    I hope you can read this before Monday:
    Why do you want to leave the company when only the PM is the (euuh?)non-fresh apple in your situation?

    Just a couple of situations I would choose between:

    • Find someone you trust and has a higher position in the company hierarchy (probably big boss), and tell him what the PM expected of you, and tell that you're not going to do that;
      Possible result: PM goes;
      If PM doesn't go and PM knows: You go;
    • Tell PM something like 'dunno yet, I'll see', when you are at the meeting with the board make sure PM (and other non-boarders) aren't there and tell the board the truth: You like their suggestions, you made yourself a plan (show it too), your colleages support you but the PM doesn't like it and wants you to lie.
      Expected result: PM goes, you get promoted;
    • Tell PM he should lie, not you; but let that guy from the board you know well, know that PM is lying.
      Expected result: PM goes;
    • Ask majority shareholder first;
    • Tell PM you don't lie,
      Expected result: ???;
    • Tell PM you lie for 10 million $,
      Expected result: same as above;

    Does your wife know about this? She knows you/the situation better than we do. Talk with her.

  • Hypothetical moral question..

    Beer, don't hijack this topic by involving OSS/Free Software and saying "That's what sucks about working for commercial enterprises. It's all about money".

    I would lie only if they payed me 10.000.000 $.

  • Microsoft: Legit Windows or no updates

    What did we actually get in return for activation? Lower prices because of less "casual copying"? Nope nothing, in fact prices are still way too high.

    If you can't write something with a pen, you won't be able to write something with a typewriter.

  • Microsoft: Legit Windows or no updates

    Back to topic: What if a company systems admin wants to download patches from his Linux box, so he can apply them to an offline pc/server with Windows?

    The more move to Linux, the more applications will be developed.

    I don't see the link between governments switching to Linux and more software being developed for it.
    I doubt that anybody at those governments is suddenly going to start developing applications or checking out the source code.

  • IE PNG Support Blows

    I had a discussion with Bruce a couple of weeks ago.
    I'll give you the best out-of-context quotes from that topic:

    • Jonathanh: full source code is included.
    • ZippyV: It's like MS is only doing the lowest amount of work to avoid serious trouble.
    • BruceMorgan: There's a saying at Microsoft: under-promise, over-deliver.
    • Rossj: But someone IS working on it ??
    • BruceMorgan: Oh come on Ross! It's not really true ...
    • ZippyV: This sounds like a great idea ... or not?
    • BruceMorgan: That's not really what it means.
    • Rossj: Darn those pesky kids !
    • BruceMorgan: That would be the "Japanese schoolgirl" demographic, followed by "South Korean teenager";
      We don't have such a system;
      I think there are better ways to be involved than writing "patches" to the IE source;

    For the right context:

  • ActiveSync deleted my contacts
