Proxy and Everything After
User: Why am I experiencing delays with Yahoo Messenger?
BOFH: No. 1, Yahoo doesn't guarantee the timeliness of their service. No. 2, you are accessing it via the company's proxy server, expect some delays as the server is caching the traffic.
User: I can't accept that! I need real time access to YM! I want to chat with my... my... my...
User: .. my client!
BOFH: Real time access is not possible.
User: And why can't I access YouTube and Friendster? You are unreasonable!
BOFH: Don't tell me that you need to communicate with your client via friendster and youtube...
BOFH goes back to check access logs.

Gmail is temporarily unavailable. Cross your fingers and try again in a few minutes. We're sorry for the inconvenience.
The Sweet Kiss of Death for the Penguin-Chameleon. From Microsoft
It seems the negotiations have begun more than six months ago, but have been kept secret until now due to the importance of this matter for both parties: the open source community on one hand and the proprietary software companies on the other.

Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister
So, this is not technology related. But it's part of my lame attempt to write in english. Well, I bought this book yesterday and finished reading it this morning. A more mature story-telling of of the classic fairy tale Cinderella. Narrated from the point of view of the "ugly stepsisters". The book delves into human nature, sacrifices, and struggles. Some struggle to escape from the claws of poverty leads to the corruption of morals. A tale with murder, betrayal, greed and arts! Read it, love it and hate it.
