Truer words were never etched into a tombstone than the ones on the Internet Explorer tombstone. The only thing you ever willingly did with it was download Firefox and Opera. I really wish the EU would have bitch slapped Microsoft more on having it (and Edge) be 100% removable. Come to think of it whatever happened to that judge that got all honked off when Microsoft released a version of Windows that would install without ie then refused to boot? They should have put Bill Gates in prison over that. He would still be married because he wouldn’t have gotten out to become buddies with Jeffrey Epstein.
According to the article he spend about $330 American to design and create this thing. Don’t know what size it is though or what it was made out of. I know the tombstone we purchased for my father was thousands, not hundreds of dollars.
Roland Hughes started his IT career in the early 1980s. He quickly became a consultant and president of Logikal Solutions, a software consulting firm specializing in OpenVMS application and C++/Qt touchscreen/embedded Linux development. Early in his career he became involved in what is now called cross platform development. Given the dearth of useful books on the subject he ventured into the world of professional author in 1995 writing the first of the "Zinc It!" book series for John Gordon Burke Publisher, Inc.
A decade later he released a massive (nearly 800 pages) tome "The Minimum You Need to Know to Be an OpenVMS Application Developer" which tried to encapsulate the essential skills gained over what was nearly a 20 year career at that point. From there "The Minimum You Need to Know" book series was born.
Three years later he wrote his first novel "Infinite Exposure" which got much notice from people involved in the banking and financial security worlds. Some of the attacks predicted in that book have since come to pass. While it was not originally intended to be a trilogy, it became the first book of "The Earth That Was" trilogy:
Lesedi - The Greatest Lie Ever Told
John Smith - Last Known Survivor of the Microsoft Wars
When he is not consulting Roland Hughes posts about technology and sometimes politics on his blog. He also has regularly scheduled Sunday posts appearing on the Interesting Authors blog.
