Jamie Zawinski’s notes on the early days of the Netscape/Mozilla Transition
On January 20th, 1998, Netscape laid off a lot of people. One of them would have been me, as my “department”, such as it was, had been eliminated, but I ended up mometarily moving from “clienteng” over to the “website” division. For about 48 hours I thought that I might end up writing a webmail product or something.
That, uh, didn’t happen.Jamie Zawinski

Death By Chair
Possibly my favourite ever Doctor Who death – the man-eating chair from 1971’s Terror of the Autons. It’s great fun with 70s Doctor Who remaining true to it’s nature – spending almost 30 seconds on inflating a plastic chair – and, as always, Roger Delgado remains the consummate professional through out.
2001: A Space Odyssey – As directed by George Lucas
I’d have watched that.
