For his sins, Sneak was forced to sit through a webcast of Bill Gates' keynote speech from the Microsoft Professional Developers Conference in Los Angeles. The Microsoft chairman's monologues frequently score highly in the duller-than-watching-paint-dry stakes, but this time, Sneak's face was saved from hitting his keyboard by some unusual enunciation on Bill's part.
"And now we have arses built right into Internet Explorer," said Bill during a discussion of features in the forthcoming Windows Vista. Or something very like it. Sneak spooled back and listened again, and again, and finally twigged that he was in fact trying to talk about Really Simple Syndication, or RSS, the internet protocol that supports weblog updates.
What with all the foreigners Gates has to deal with, having that whine of a West-coast accent must be a real bummer.
