In the News "Florian Mueller has confessed - in the interests of being 'transparent', he says - that Oracle has hired him, for his analysis of FRAND issues. I know. You are shocked, shocked. Who'd have ever guessed? We did. Groklaw did. We get suspicious when someone's 'analysis' is uniformly that Google is doomed. It's my Spidey sense. And it's usually on the money, as they say." We've had a no-link policy in place for Mueller from back when everybody else was still citing him as a trustworthy, independent analyst. My own senses told me otherwise, and I was right. Paint me red, girl scout, etc. etc.

The article was updated with this text:

I see Jan Wildeboer making this point explicitly:
"He works (and/or has worked) for both Microsoft and Oracle and thus is not exactly an independent source or expert."

"Paint me red, girl scout, etc."

I fear it might have something to do with Thom's sexual fetishes, so let's drop the subject shall we ;)

It's not, it did remind me of Blackadder, an English comedy series.

A bittorrent client should do the trick too!

I bought series 2-4 (didn't like series 1) of Blackadder on dvd and ripped those to iTunes, but I'm sure you can find everything on bittorrent.

Look for full seasons instead of individual episodes.
