It seems they changed their policy of talking about the company stuff outside of sun a bad horrible firing thing. That’s why we get to see people talk about what sun is doing and their DoS attacks…I think it also creates some more confusion on what sun is actually doing.. particular johnathon schwartz was concerned that sun was being blocked off from the outside world.. 2004-06-08 9:28 am of Sun trying to return to the good ol’ days when they were open to the developer community and it worked for them. I think they are doing to little to late myself, as the migration from Unix to Linux picks up steam, but more power to them if they can pull it off. 2004-06-08 9:43 am I’ve criticized them mercilessly, but this is good move and a good departure. A step in the right direction, but still a lot of things to do. 2004-06-08 11:25 am Will read blogs.sun as much as I read blugs.msdn 2004-06-08 11:48 am blogs.walmart? blogs.macdonalds? blogs.toyota? blogs.memyselfandmycompany? 2004-06-08 12:25 pm so what about Planet Sun? http://planetsun.org/ 2004-06-08 12:55 pm Glad to hear it. 🙂 2004-06-08 1:08 pm Note that the aforementioned Planet Sun is a better place to follow, as the aggregation covers http://blogs.sun.com/ as well as external blogs that some Sun employees have. And it looks nicer. 2004-06-08 1:17 pm Does this look huge to anyone else? http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/pat/20040608 It may just be IE’s CSS rendering. 2004-06-08 1:19 pm Huge in Opera 7.51 on XP too… 2004-06-08 1:55 pm http://www.tbray.org/ongoing/When/200x/2004/05/02/PolicyMaking 2004-06-08 4:41 pm No, just a 17” Powerbook:-) Sorry about that, I have been messing up with my stylesheet yesterday in order to prepare for a presentation I have to give soon about advanced Roller usage, and left it in a unfinished state. I had set font-size: large for all styles, so large yes, but not really huge. I didn’t know I would have such an attentive readership:-) It should be better now. Thanks for the comment though.

It looks as if it were Zaurus-only (on my 15 inch laptop display there’s more than half of the browser window blue, i.e. no text) 2004-06-08 5:13 pm > on my 15 inch laptop display there’s more than half of the browser window blue, i.e. no text If that wasn’t clear, I meant the text column is less than half of the browser window’s width. 2004-06-08 5:20 pm Way to go Sun, a bit late, but better late than… They even have one called WillsHead, you gotta love it. Will 2004-06-08 5:22 pm Though it is interesting to see what the Sun employees have to say, here at OSNews they seem to be even more open and honest and frank. For example, see http://www.osnews.com/comment.php?news_id=7283 and look for the comments from IP: —.sun.com. If there were comments like that, I’d be much more interested. But then the posters would probably get sacked 🙁 2004-06-08 5:44 pm “For example, see http://www.osnews.com/comment.php?news_id=7283 and look for the comments from IP: —.sun.com” Yeah, except that guy wouldn’t say who he was or what he even does for Sun. Without some kind of qualification, he’s not really telling us anything, mereley doing what everybody here does…offer an opinion (and often making it sound like fact). That guy either had a grudge against Bill Joy or some sort of personal issue. 2004-06-08 10:43 pm ip spoofing?
