- Ecole Active Bilingue JM, Promo 83
Si vous connaissez quelqu'un ayant fini sa scolarité secondaire en 1983 à l'Ecole Bilingue, merci de lui demander de se mettre en contact avec moi! On est en train de préparer un gros gloutch, après tout, ça fait 20 ans qu'on a passé le bac hein :-)

Precisely 11 years ago, during a discussion with my manager at Grif SA (Jean Paoli, now working at MSFT, editor of XML 1.0 spec), we listed a few known big lacks of SGML, in particular in wysiwyg editing environments. When I say "known", it means that all the people working seriously on SGML knew about those problems. Eleven years. Today, sketching an implementation design based on XML Schemas, I have hit one of them. Strictly unresolved, it's almost a blocker for wysiwyg XML editing based on XML Schemas + CSS without prior knowledge of the schemas... You win a mention in this blog if you find the problem I hit.

Update (Aug 16, 11:16am GMT+1): 21 proposals (all proposals got an email back) but no solution yet :-)
He is becoming a true Internet superstar here in France. In french, we would call him a "mega-blaireau"; in swedish, probably "super-medelfransman"; in english, probably just "super-moron". If you can read french or are willing to use Babelfish, check his web site and don't miss (1) the "Motivations" section of his resume/CV (2) the Engineers button at the top...
If you're an engineer, support Arthur Dupré le Mega-Blaireau and add a few lines in your blog about him. He deserves a high rank in search engines.
Update the site is a fake...

- PSA (Proud Stupid asshole) strikes again
Remember Andras Konya, the guy who assimilated Mozilla imagery to the Nazis? He strikes back in netscape.public.mozilla.general. Here's a verbatim, don't laugh too loud, your neighbour is sleeping :-)
" Yes Munich seems to be a different place than Berlin. They arent even spelled the same. "

- (Antoine, 5 years old, a friend of my son) Daniel, what's the big building on the left?

Thursday, a NYC flash mob gathered 300 persons in Times Square's Toys'R'us. They spent a few cycles shouting in front of a very big dino and left. Mozilla marketing?-)
