    A. Love the new website design. It has been interesting seeing things change as you have made improvements.

    B. It appears I am leaving the second comment. Is there a reason that I cannot see the first one? Other than the obvious (to me) one that I am using NoScript and have things really locked down at my end?

    C. UEFI and Visual Studio news. Very insightful comments. I had heard about both, but did not put together the fact that both moves serve to increase worldwide dependency on Microsoft – they have the only “First Class” operating system, and only they (or their good customers) can make “First Class” software. So they are finally moving to expunge Open Source and Free Software from their realm. When did they originally get the US governments blessing for their monopoly? Around 1994? It has taken them 18 years to finally begin the monopolist move of forcing out the competition? I should be grateful they have been so slow, but really: You call this Capitalism? The nineteenth century robber barons must be spinning in their graves.
