"Our initial contract with Sun expires this summer. [...] Upshot of this is that we are being asked to pay a 600% increase in yearly licence and support costs. This is to license the product that doesn?t quite work yet and for support that seems to involve posting our question on public forums"
Darren is not happy -- along with the rest of our sysadmins.
I'd be a bit more angry at us potentially moving to Exchange, except that, well, JES really is utter crap.
I don't have to use it -- thank goodness -- but I do have to put up with undergrads sending me work from it...

"The W3C Patent Policy is most effective when W3C Members with patent portfolios participate. To participate, they agree to the Royalty-Free Licensing Requirements of the policy; individuals are much less likely to hold patents than organizations."
OK, so I can't represent myself on the working group ... because you want to get your hands on my employer's patents. Um. Lovely.
