My Microsoft stock was up 2.4% yesterday on the news, so I was pretty excited.

Meh, that's nothing.  China just seized a Japanese ship in response to a lawsuit first filed in the 1930's.

Of course, that one is more world politics and Chinese bullshiat that anything else, but sometimes legal cases last for decades.

They are claiming that it was a civil action (IE, two ships were leased to a Japanese company and never returned when the lease was up) as opposed to a governmental one.  Apparently the Japanese company decided not to fight it since it paid $28.6 million to get it's ship back.

Holy crap, Novell is still around? I think more orgs use Lotus Notes than GroupWise.
