So is Princess Diana, aliens, and Dodi Fayed a seperate article or what? And if so, why does he try to tie it in with "With SCO in mind..." in the first paragraph. And what does it have to do with a site called IT-Analysis.com?
The highlight of the whole SCO debacle has to be Groklaw and Pamela Jones. Having to fight Groklaw and IBM's powerful legal team must be something close to a nightmare; and if that's the case it's just deserts.
First off, regarding the front half of the article, my god, not even James Ellroy could concoct something so endlessly twisted. (But his would have more sex and violence.)
Regarding the "conspiracy theory" I think I hurt something laughing. (It could only be better if the author had managed to work in cold fusion, numerology, and a dash of the Loch Ness monster.)
At any rate, I think the whole article is a wonderful reminder at just how incredibly, fantastically *strange* this whole SCO-IBM thing has become.
Because you know that when the dust finally settles on this one, somebody's going to be writing the most mindlblowingly warped work of NON-FICTION, ever. "No, really, this is TRUE!"
i think it is a lot deeper and uglier than it even seems... I am waiting for Darl to embezzle a LARGE amount and be kicking back on a beach on some island he bought... crazy!
I still have concerns over the suicide... whoa so did it say Kriedel committed suicide? I knew penrose but somehow have missed Kriedel... Is that right?
What kind of company can that be...freakin monsters...scary really
There goes about 5 minutes I'll never be able to get back.
WTF? Princess Di? Did anyone read this article before it was posted?
OSNews: You got served! Its on!
You got served!
Nelson - "HaHa"
I don't think Val Kriedel's suicide (and really, I need to read about that somewhere else, after that Princess Di stuff) has anything to do with conspiracies.
I do think it has to do with the child-like emotional maturity of many of the International Corporation's upper management/boards of directors.
I was pretty interested till Diana showed up.
A google of "Kriedel committed suicide" gives several much better stories, there was a 2nd suicide, very wierd story all around.
Why does SCO even make the news anymore? The whole story has been fizzling out for a long time now. Does anybody care anymore? Aren't even the journalists tired of listening to all that hot air?
I thought the articles were entertaining in an over-the-top way. Maybe they oughta make a movie.
i remmeber Penrose (Rob or something) committed suicide supposedly but somehow never seen anything about the other guy.... as I said scary company that I would not DARE to have anything to do with...
It's pushing up the daisies. Let's leave it that way.
I think the 5 minutes were worth the read. Pretty freaky kind of, especially how it goes from sco, di to comments about programming languages. I thought it was a good read.
I wouldn't be surprised if IBM pushes for a summary judgement after SCO's next filing deadline. Their affidavit including powerful scripts to exhaustively search the dynix and project monterey source trees was an insight into how seriously IBM is taking this suit at this point. They approach the outrageous discovery requirements with as much respect as this whole charade deserves. To boot up the AIX server, press the power button on the front panel. Priceless.
The rambling almost made sense, but it doesn't, twisting and turning into all sorts of avenues. Funny, really, it sort of reflects my thinking. I mean, my attention span =)
The other guy was acctually a gal; Val Kriedel, Ray Noordas daughter.
Groklaw mentioned it and /. might have done too (too lazy to look up).
nah i thought the daughter had a different name.... and she took the lead in booting??? Yarro i think the name was...
yea I dont care to look it up and dig into that load of crap! They ought to dissolve the whole damn thing as ugly as it is...
There are far too many convenient suicides these days for my comfort. Raymond Lemme's suicide (not related to linux) is especially disturbing.
We need more openess and more legitimately independent investigators on such cases to ensure no wrong doing.
... there is a name for something like that.
wasn't it ADD or something, attention deficiency disorder or something like that...
i mean, first he's writing about how weird the whole SCO thing has become (ok, he's right there), but then he jumps to conspiracy theories about lady di's death, and then tries to make funny jokes with IT acronyms (and fails horribly there)...
i wouldn't even want to _compare_ this with serious writing.
... and blogs entries ARE known to occasionally contain multiple paragraphs on UNRELATED topics...
I just stopped reading once I realized the author had changed subject...
