schestowitzfirefox is really awful to compile. it would be really nice if it wasnt such a bloated piece of crap, if we had a nice lightweight browser that we could customise with python instead, like paranoia browser. thats what i think we need in the long run.Oct 08 07:47
schestowitzthe days of trusting mozilla are over. the days of letting them continue to abuse our trust are here. i long for the days where we use something else instead, and put this crapware behind us.Oct 08 07:47
schestowitzobviously, i dont consider chrome a solution. chrome is not a web browser, chrome is malware.Oct 08 07:47

schestowitzi cant really convey how i feel about this without a ridiculous metaphor.Oct 08 07:48
schestowitzsuppose i carry some metal implements in one hand, and a clipboard with a pen and a form in the other.Oct 08 07:48
schestowitzevery day, i come to your door and i start poking at your locks. when you ask me what the hell im doing, i say “its cool, look at this form!”Oct 08 07:48
schestowitzand you look and it says “do you want me to stop poking at your locks when youre not at home? [ ] yes [ ] no” and you pick up a pen and check no. i tip my hat and walk away. so its cool now, right? i mean youre not at all bothered by whatever the heck i was doing, you feel ok with everything after that.Oct 08 07:48
schestowitzat any rate, this is how i feel about mozilla in general these days. its a lot different than how i used to feel about them. just to be clear: yes, chromium is even worse. like significantly worse. the metaphor with chromium is similar: same clipboard, same form, except someone is already in the house. just check “no” and he will get out of your way. he wont ever say what he was doing, but at least he left.Oct 08 07:48

schestowitzThe mention of the incident which led to R 19/12 is not very helpful in the present circumstances. R 19/12 showed nevertheless that there was a problem with the independence of the Boards.Oct 08 08:28
schestowitzThis problem has not been resolved with the installation of the Board of Appeal Committee and the nomination of the President of the Boards of Appeal, and certainly not with their exile to Haar. As long as the Boards will not have a budget which is separate from the general budget of the EPO, they will only be independent on the paper for this reason alone.Oct 08 08:28
schestowitzAs such the EPO is immune in his actions and cannot be cited before a national court. It is a totally different matter to decide whether or not the Boards of Appeal are truly independent or not.Oct 08 08:28
schestowitzThat is what has to be decided by the Federal Constitutional Court, not whether the members of an opposition division were more interested in a football match or in doing their job.Oct 08 08:28
schestowitzIn its decision T 2097/10, the Board noted thatOct 08 08:28
schestowitz–the conduct of the oral proceedings cannot be described as unreservedly satisfactory,Oct 08 08:28
schestowitz–the reasons for the decision to admit D18 and D19 could have been more detailedOct 08 08:28
schestowitz–since the inventive step was also questioned on the basis of a new line of attack (based on D7), it would have been reasonable for the Opposition Division to ask the patentee whether, in this new situation, it wished to submit the already announced amendments to the patent prior to the examination of the inventive step. The fact that this did not happen is regrettable, but not fundamentally flawed.Oct 08 08:28
schestowitzThat the behaviour of the opposition could have been better, is one thing, the Board decided nevertheless that the opposition division had not committed a substantial procedural violation. But as said, this is not what has to be decided by the Federal Constitutional Court.Oct 08 08:28
