IBM Strikes - Again

Di seguito, una lunga chattata, in pure english, su ciò che è avvenuto con, dopo e durante il primo sciopero su SL..

[7:59] Barillo Kohnke: Hi Dalinian!!!! Today we signed a new union agreement with IBM!!! A GREAT VICTORY FOR ALL OF US!!!
[8:00] Dalinian Bing: WOO-HOO!
[8:00] Dalinian Bing: Many Congratulations, Comrade
[8:01] Dalinian Bing: I'm really pleased for you and all your workmates -- well done indeed
[8:01] Dalinian Bing: Best news I've had in ages :-]]]
[8:14] Barillo Kohnke: Sorry, my graph card crashed...
[8:23] Dalinian Bing: Yeah I guessed something went wrong -- welcome back
[8:24] Barillo Kohnke: Yes..a SL crash... :-(
[8:24] Dalinian Bing: Sorry for the delayed response... I'm building
[8:25] Dalinian Bing: So -- complete victory for the 9,000 workers?
[8:25] Dalinian Bing: Or did the workscouncil concede too many compromises?
[8:25] Barillo Kohnke: yes, i will write you some more details...but you can imagine..we won against a big corporate...thanks to our SL protest
[8:26] Barillo Kohnke: no, I think it's good results...some points are still open, but we give back money to the workers...
[8:26] Dalinian Bing: BRILLIANT NEWS -- so glad and proud for all of you in Italy...
[8:27] Barillo Kohnke: :-) thanks to you !
[8:27] Dalinian Bing: ...and that all our efforts towards the sucess of the SL Strike were so worthwhile
[8:28] Barillo Kohnke: yep
[8:30] Dalinian Bing: That's kind of a new historical first for the international labour movement then -- an international protest in a virtual world being a significant factor in winning a national dispute over pay
[8:30] Barillo Kohnke: YES !!!!!!!!!!
[8:30] Dalinian Bing: FAN-BLINKIN-TASTIC!!!
[8:33] Dalinian Bing: Given the resignation of the IBM Italy CEO and the sucess of the workscouncil, backed up by the SL Strike -- I bet the global management of IBM are on the defensive, and the repercussions for other global corporate bosses are echoing too in the 'corridors of power' :-)))
[8:34] Barillo Kohnke: eheeh yes.. I hope that more fights will arrive from the other workscouncils...
[8:36] Dalinian Bing: Yep -- cetainly from within IBM, given your sucess -- and we can but hope that this news spreads widely in the international RL labour movement, so that other national disputes may call a SL Strike to back up their struggles
[8:36] Barillo Kohnke: yes, I will work on this
[8:37] Barillo Kohnke: we created some "problems" to the RL union federations..now they have to think about new way to fight
[8:40] Barillo Kohnke: bye, going back to write the "victory mail" in English, for the IBM SL strikers...
[8:40] Barillo Kohnke: ciao
[8:40] Dalinian Bing: Well, given the way most union leaderships are a part of oiling the wheels of Capital, like the banks or pension funds, rather than throwing all their weight behind defending and forwarding their rank and file union members interests, I would hope that this is a wake-up call for them too
[8:41] Barillo Kohnke: yes, I completely agree. I had many enemies against me, inside the unions...
[8:43] Dalinian Bing: And I assume the SL Strike was the idea of 'shop-floor' union reps, rather paid union full-timers in the union Headquarters and workscouncil?
[8:43] Barillo Kohnke: ehehe yes...the workscouncil and the headquarters of the union tried to stop me
[8:44] Barillo Kohnke: incredible...for this reason I gave my resignation
[8:45] Dalinian Bing: Well -- a BIG congratulatory slap on the back to you for sticking to the idea of an SL Strike and being SUCH and active participant in making it happen
[8:45] Barillo Kohnke: yes...
[8:46] Dalinian Bing: Resignation from what?
[8:47] Barillo Kohnke: from the workscouncil... I will continue to work on the international union relationship for IBM, but without being inside the workscouncil...
[8:47] Barillo Kohnke: a normal "little" employees representative
[8:47] Barillo Kohnke: and my normal work
[8:48] Dalinian Bing: ok -- because the Italian workscouncil was exposed as being so conservative as to actively oppose the virtual Strike?
[8:49] Barillo Kohnke: yes
[8:52] Dalinian Bing: Good on ya -- I hope and trust that your move and the reasons for your resignation will only enhance your reputatation further as a militant with his members' interests in the forefront of his mind, and a futurist (in a good 21st century way) in favour of exploring new ways of sucessfully forwarding the class struggle in new and innovative ways
[8:53] Barillo Kohnke: this is my direction... I don't want to be involved with people interested in their personal interests, instead of fighting for the workers' rights...
[8:53] Barillo Kohnke: something is changing...so I will work with few people around the world to build a global union alliance..
[8:54] Dalinian Bing: BTW, feel free to use any of the stuff I've said in your report, either attributed to me, or 'a Strike organiser commented', or as your own op/ed writing
[8:55] Barillo Kohnke: ok. thanks. your contribution was great, and our victory is dedicated to all of us that organized the SL Strike
[8:56] Dalinian Bing: I think you have a good and positive direction there -- do not rely on old, tried, conservative national union full-timers, but build international alliances of fellow forward thinking militants who can really build international solidarity in a meaningful way
[8:57] Dalinian Bing: Ok -- you get on and write your English victory announcement, comrade
[8:59] Dalinian Bing: I look forward to reading it, and most probably quoting from it and this conversation in my future writing about our sucess
[9:00] Barillo Kohnke: ok
[9:00] Barillo Kohnke: bye ! thanks again
[9:00] Dalinian Bing: u r v much welcome :-)))
[9:01] Dalinian Bing: bye for now

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Online guitar lessons are a great way to learn guitar. Cheaper and more convenient than private studio lessons, the technology is now at a point where the difference in quality is nonexistent and actually has many advantages.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Hi, Good morning.
I love www.blogger.com because I learned a lot here. Now it's time for me to pay back.
The reason I want to post this guide on this of www.blogger.com is to help people solve the same problem.
Please let me know if it is inapproprate here.
Here is the guide, hope it would help you.

Avast vs. Norton 2009
Protecting the valuable and private data on a computer, let alone the personal identity of the computer user, is an increasingly important task these days. This is why researching which security solutions are best for your protection should not be a half-hearted process. Antivirus software may look the same on the surface. Avast and Norton both have excellent reputations. Norton is a known brand in the U.S., while Avast is one of the world's most recognized brands.
Security Issues
Malicious computer code comes through everything from email and attachments, to instant messaging and flash drives these days. Two of the most common methods are social marketing profiles and peer-2-peer transfers. Today's cyber-crime organizations are not rooms with overzealous teens trying to outdo each other. Today, cyber-terrorists do not want to destroy the computer, they want to control it. In order to accomplish the goal, cyber-criminals will use extreme stealth methods to get around computer protection.
Avast Anti-Virus
Avast Anti-Virus provides very advanced protection features and options, not found in the average anti-virus solution. These benefits include anti-spyware, anti-rootkit and self-protection to keep malware from turning off the Avast security. The Advast anti-virus kernel is ISA certified, and it has received 100VB awards for catching 100 percent of the malicious software sent to attack the computer. Avast also includes special advanced features, instant messaging and peer-2-peer shields and script blocking to protect computer users from unknowingly accepting and downloading malware from trusted friends and websites.
Norton 2009
Norton 2009 is the fastest and lightest anti-virus solution ever created by Norton. Earlier versions bogged down the computer, causing computer users to turn off the anti-virus protection. Norton 2009 is light and fast. Symantec, the parent company, stated there are over 300 improvements to Norton 2009. However, according to Geek.com, an independent tech blog, Norton 2009 only scored "98% for malware detection and 95% for spyware detection on recent AV-Test testing." This does raise some protection concerns.
Considerations
Choosing the best anti-virus protection to fit your needs is critical. You may need live telephone support. Avast is based out of the Czech Republic, so getting a live person on the phone could be a challenge depending on where you live. Norton does offer live phone support, but charges high fees for phone support. Both companies offer support forums, blogs and tutorials and active support communities to help both the average and advanced computer user in a time of need.
Expert Advice
Avast provides the most advanced protection of these two anti-virus solutions, and currently protects over 80 million computers. Of the two, Avast has the most consistent track record of detecting and stopping 100 percent of the malicious attacks tested. However, both Avast and Norton only update their virus definitions once a day. In today's cyber-crime world, it is "Best Practice" to automatically update virus-definitions every few hours, or at least two or three times in a 24-hour period. Cyber-criminals watch this type of activity and use it to judge when the best time is to release new malware.
