It's not about 1st amendment, it's about condoning Mozilla's despicable behavior.

Today I got a nice email from someone inside Mozilla, in response to my ang=
ry post elsewhere, explaining Mozilla's actions. He ended his email with:

"Open dialogue is an important part of Mozilla's commitment to open, honest=
 and community-driven communication, and we remain committed to a free, ope=
n web."

In the spirit of open dialogue, let me share here my response to him.


Dear ...,

I appreciate your position yet I remain convinced that Mozilla's behavior w=
as despicable.

Mozilla caved in to public pressure about one of its employees' personal be=
liefs. Instead of publicly stepping forward and defending its CEO, Mozilla =
allowed him to take the fall for the company. That he chose to do so speaks=
 volumes for his personal integrity and his love for Mozilla, yet it does n=
ot absolve the board for its cowardice.

This is no different from Khomeini issuing a fatwa on Salman Rushdie and th=
e publication houses expecting him to withdraw his book. That the publisher=
s didn't ask him to do it is a tribute to their beliefs in individual right=
s and human dignity. Contrast that with Mozilla's board cowardly behavior.

This is not much different from McCarthyism that expected workplaces to "vo=
luntarily" not employ people associated with communism, or having friends a=
mong them, in the 1950s. That McCarthyism is now universally condemned is a=
 tribute to American society. I hope that Mozilla's board will be similarly=
 condemned in the future.

Until such condemnation happens, I will not use Mozilla, I will recommend t=
o people to uninstall Mozilla, and I will speak against Mozilla at every op=
portunity that I have.

In fact, if you and your colleagues have any personal dignity left, you wil=
l consider resigning from a company behaving in such despicable way.

DataSet's DataTable's and TableAdapter's Oh My!
Here is my situation.  I am using VB as my programming language.I am creating a part of a website that will be the admin section.  I want the admin to be able to add/edit data in a set of tables that normal users can't.  There are 20 lookup tables that I use in the website that I want the admin to be able to manage (i.e. add, edit, delete, insert).  I don't want to create 20 separate web pages (one for each table).  I have one page that has links to all the tables.  Each link has a "table" querystring variable associated with it.  When the...

Who's show is SN? Steve's or Leo's?
I don't want to start anything (honestly)! Just want to ask a simple question. Does the Security Now podcast belong to Steve Gibson or Leo Laporte? Maybe I'm in a world all to myself, but when I listen to the excellent SN podcasts, I want to hear STEVE, not Leo. But especially in the past few shows, it seems Leo will repeatedly interrupt Steve in the middle of a sentence that I want to hear the rest of. I consider this very rude of Leo. Steve is making a point that I (we) want to hear, then looses his train of thought after Leo barges in and asks something. It...

411 it's pconsole, 51 it's NWPMW32, 65 it's ???
I like to give some of my users controll over their print jobs. In Netware 3.x to 4.x it was pconsole. In Netware 5.x it was NWPMW32. I don't seem to be able to find the same type of utility for Netware 6.5? We don't like to give user access to nwadmin and the NWPMW32 I copied from my 51 server (TID 10075273) to the 65 server won't display the jobs.

NtCanuck's `TreeWalk' and AnalogX's `FastCache' Dns Servers
Hello Global Friends, I have been using AnalogX's "FastCache" software as my Local Dns Server for all these years. For the last three years I did not see a new version of FastCache software. Recently I came to know of (Developers NT Canuck & ObiWan) "Tree Walk" Dns Server and started using it in the place of FastCache. Tree Walk works perfectly but some offline web pages could not load in IE6.
