A cheap guy

According to yesterday's filing, Steve Ballmer was paid $1.3M in fiscal 2007, a year in which Microsoft profit reached a new record at $14B.

This guy is world's best bargain :-)
So, no stock plan, just that? really...

Do NOT fly British Airways

I've been using BA for years and appreciated an excellent service... so far. On Wed last week, I flew from San Francisco to Paris, thru London. Beyond fact it was delayed, my luggage was not at arrival in CDG. At this point, Monday, 6 days later and me being back in SF, my luggage hasn't been found.
No luck? I'm afraid not. At claim desk, I was told that 6,000 luggages where "missing" at Heathrow and since I posted on my French blog, I received numerous testimonials from people in the same situation.

I change my summer plan to NOT fly BA and will use another airline. I'm sure they'll fix this but meanwhile, I encourage you to avoid BA as much as possible.

This is not against BA but rather to help you out. I will update this later on.

US envy France

I love Bill Maher. Loved him before this show. Love him even better after.
Point is, the truth is in between. But his pitch is simply hilarious.
