No shame.

Letter obliterated at the request of ONE of those
ATTACKED in it.
That person does NOT want that ATTACK out in public …

We are acquiescing to that VICTIM’s wishes.

Anyway it was BUT a meaningless, petulant, self-aggrandizing e-mail.

P.S. ACS Board meeting, in Non-Public Session (of course) with Counsel
next Tuesday, February 24, 2015.

But does Counsel have a conflict of interest already?

Did Counsel’s have a role in drafting Lander’s contract?

Resign from all committees? More delusions of grandeur. This is a School Board. If you are going to resign, resign from the Board.

Pretty nasty things to say about some of the Members. I am sure we can find minutes where he wasn’t too flattering about ‘Marilyn’ being coopted to the Board. C’est la vie.

BINGO

Minutes 8/11/2014, he OPPOSED Marilyn’s appointment. Only one who opposed. Oh, how things change. Any port in a storm.

Very Germane to what is happening right now.

This too involved a contract and facts that were withheld — Lander, as ever, smack in the middle.

It is ALL in this August 22, 2013 post which also contains THIS letter.

For the record there was NO revote. Lander would not permit it saying that Alton would get sued.

How quickly folks forget.

If you need to ask “Marlborough” where, it is best if you didn’t attend.

I got the notification, actually two, via e-mail. Made me grin (which is not that hard to do).

I never worked for CrossComm, though I probably should have — given the amount of time I spent there (but because I did NOT work for them I was told off for showing up there without a tie and jacket).

I started doing consulting work for CrossComm, in 1991, when I was the ‘Lead Consultant‘ at BBN. We did some fun stuff. I arranged for CrossComm to buy time on a 3745 that BBN owned. I arranged for XComm to lease a 3174 from BBN for some testing. Then they, i.e., XComm, said it did NOT work. I went to check. It was not loading from the diskette. I fixed it — one of my inspired troubleshooting wins. They had put all of the THICK 3174 documentation, in binders, on top of the 3174. The weight was flexing the case! Removed the binders and the 3174 loaded — which was nice because having worked on the original 327x family, while at IBM, the 327xs were my ‘babies’.

Gregory W. Koss, CrossComm’s intrepid and brilliant SVP retained me as soon as I left BBN. I worked for Greg at XComm till 1995 or 1996 — until he left for Andrews. I followed Greg to Andrews though I think I still did work for XComm and even Olicom.

It was good times. I liked XComm. I liked the people — some very much! Good friends, good people. Lots of fun. I liked Tad. He was always nice to me. And Nigel — my cricket buddy from South Africa (who used to VCR matches for me). Thank YOU, Nigel — I still think of you when I watch cricket (and how the tapes always contained, mysteriously, some adult content). And William who was my Best Man in 2003 (and opposed to the one, ex-Juniper in 1987).

Though over the course of 3 or 4 years I wrote 30 or 40 “The Blue View” OpEds for “Network World“, this which mentions Tad, was by far my favorite. You can read the original, thanks to Google, here. Those days I had to discuss each OpEd with a number of folks, some within “Network World“, before I could submit it for edit. Everybody said I would not be allowed to get away with the wordplay of Tad. Others told me that Tad would not be amused. I gather Tad’s only comment was: “I can’t believe he wrote that”. He never said a word to me. Tad was fun. Always liked him. Still do. My time of person.

So to all of YOU ex-XCommers, starting with Tad & Larry, CHEERS. Thanks for all the fish … and I am not joking … Greg insisted on eating fish and chips every time we went out to lunch … and we went out to lunch a lot … until years later he told me that he actually never liked fish and chips. We then started eating Indian.

IF I could only remember how to get to Marlborough — which I have not visited in … 17 years.

Better than audio.


I received these two, fairly good quality, AUDIO clips via e-mail.

They were in QuickTime format and I had to first convert them to MP3.

WordPress, at least this ‘.com’ version, does NOT support MP3 files — and I couldn’t upload them to YouTube.

I am kind of pressed for time, so the quickest and easiest expediency was to upload them to MY Website (because I can support more or less any file format on that). So that is what I did.

So it is on this page … WAY at the BOTTOM. Scroll down, and down until you can go no further. Then you will see the 2 ‘audio bars’. The 2nd one is the one you want. It is pretty clear.

In case you are wondering about the legality of these recordings ….
given that “Right to Know” is at the heart of the matter.

You should actually READ these RSAs. You will be flabbergasted.
