Holiday re-runs

I'm using the holidays in the United States and Canada this week as an excuse to re-run three blogs from the past. There's new stuff coming on Thursday and Friday.


  1. for Monday I'm re-running "Mainframes, IFL, and Linux" from May 16, 2006.

  2. And, speaking of things that haven't changed - I'm rerunning "The right way for Sun to deal with Wall Street" from May 2nd, 2006 on Tuesday. It's unsolicited (and unheard) advice to Sun that makes as much sense now as it did then.

  3. Tying these two re-runs together is Wednesday's: Captain Cyborg and the problem of evil, from December 16, 2005.

I'll be back Thursday - meanwhile I'm trying to figure out what a Gerard stone coated ("Canyon Shake") metal roof for this house is going to cost me: and if you know anything about this stuff, I'd like to hear from you - murph at winface dotcom please.
