An update on an earlier blog

An update on an earlier blog – “A new view indeed”.  Just thought I would pass it along.  Before posting this, I asked Curt.

Bash my opinions all you want -- you have every right to be wrong :) -- but that censorship story is utter nonsense -- just character assassination on Pascal's part.  Please see the link above.

Thanks,

Not that I agree with the concept behind DBMS2, but I do agree with his decision to move somewhere that is not edited.

Thanks for the update.

I think either Pascal or Alf did note on their blog/sites that it is very likely the censorship/editorship was done by ComputerWorld and not by Monash.

Maybe this will be a wake up call for ComputerWorld (not that I read the publication anyhow).

Tom I hope you won't mind if I use your much-read blog to draw the attention of our Oracle family towards the huge calamity which hit the Pakistan on 8th October. Here according the recent count, 2 lakh people are already dead. Million are injured and homeless. Misery and haplessness is all around us. I was some 80Km from the epicenter of earthquake and experienced the disaster first hand. We are still feeling after shocks of 6 magnitude here. Please reach out to help the victims. You can make donations by searching the sites of the following NGOs:

International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
Oxfam
Mercy Corps
ICNA Relief Helping Hand
American Red Cross (donate to the International Response Fund)
Canadian Red Cross
UNICEF

There are also links on the Wikipedia page for the quake and at the South Asia Quake Help Blog.

My first thought was this: "what is a lakh?" According to Wikipedia, it's a traditional way of saying "one hundred thousand" on the Indian subcontinent:

A horrible tragedy indeed.

I wonder if "that same crowd" wants to blame global warming for this one too. I believe we have the same corelating scientific evidence...
