Re: sobering if true

What wasn't true? The article on theregister mentioned the proprietary
certificate technology, the filtering by browser type and system, etc. The
pdf referenced on slashdot went into a little further followup, mentioning
that the government office in charge is now recognizing that it has to open
the site's functionality (including the proprietaray certificates) to non-MS
browsers and systems. And this is, of course, going to take time.

I think it's time for another tea-party, with the other side mixing the tea
this time.
