...to the dozens of people who sent me a mail about Netscape's end.
...for the five journalists from France, UK and US who called me at home for an interview about it. I was away for summer vacation and I was not ready to answer questions since I am technically still employed by Netscape/AOL (the layoff process takes time here).
- Sorry again...
...for the mailer-daemon errors if you sent me a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. AOL, forgetting that such an action is illegal here since I am still employed, cut our email and AIM accounts the 16th of July. I can now be reached at

- Sorry once more....
...for the W3C: AOL did not leave us time to unsubscribe from W3C lists or even notify the Groups we belong too. AOL participation into ECMA and W3C is almost totally gone now. I guess this is a good hint about how AOL-Time Warner sees the importance of underlying technologies for its business model.

Netscape hired me three years ago, AOL laid me off today (technically, having a french contract of employment, I am still employed; we don't throw away people in ten seconds here. We take thirty seconds, that's cleaner). AOL axed Netscape at the same time. People, it's over. Netscape is dead. Nothing to see here.

Finally had some cycles to spend on this, between a big flu and sunbathing. Stay tuned.
- Mentions spéciales
Juste parce qu'ils méritent qu'on le dise : la brasserie Vivaldi à Bayonne, à deux pas des Halles en bord de nive, sert un Achoa et un gateau basque absolument remarquables pour un prix très doux dans un cadre très agréable. Cerise sur le gateau, ils sont gentils, souriants, rapides et efficaces. Une bonne adresse à conserver.
Juste parce qu'ils le méritent aussi : le restaurant La Chaumière à Seignosse-Le-Penon ferait mieux de surveiller sa chaîne du froid au lieu de servir de la merde à sa clientèle. Service à chier, bouffe ignoble, à éviter à tout prix.
