It appears that this is a day of technical difficulties. After a thunderstorm seems to have taken out part of FSFE’s infrastructure in Sweden, leaving FSFE with a lost day of email connectivity, I took a look at BoingBoing.net, usually a good source of entertainment. I wasn’t disappointed.
As it turns out, BoingBoing reports that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, president of Iran, now has a weblog. In a place of internet censorship, that alone has a certain sad twist of irony to it. But trying to look at the blog was an even more interesting experience:
I guess this could be summarised as
- Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has no problem being dependent on US software, which in turn has no problem failing on him.
and considering all the back-doors and vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, one cannot help but think about
