The great Nina Simone with “feelings” …
A rather old interview, but sufficient to get a glimpse of OpenBSD.
“The Wrath of Khan” in 60 seconds. In my opinion one of the best Star Trek movies. Finally, any movie after the sixth part was a serious pain in the backside, especially the latest silly attempt of Abrams.
Ah, Kirk, my old friend. Do you know the Klingon proverb that tells us revenge is a dish that is best served cold? … It is very cold in space.

A funny explaination about the real background.
We expect even more rapid innovation in the web media platform in the coming year and are focusing our investments in those technologies that are developed and licensed based on open web principles. To that end, we are changing Chrome’s HTML5 video support to make it consistent with the codecs already supported by the open Chromium project. Specifically, we are supporting the WebM (VP8) and Theora video codecs, and will consider adding support for other high-quality open codecs in the future. Though H.264 plays an important role in video, as our goal is to enable open innovation, support for the codec will be removed and our resources directed towards completely open codec technologies.
Google drops H264 in favour of their very own inferior video codec WebM. Guess why? “Because it’s free.” So why they bundle Adobe Flash with their browser? Flash is a pain in the backside since its early Macromedia days. It’s fine to have some free codecs around, but Google is just a huge hypocrite. Time to move on again.
