Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Most of the members of Team Kimberlin have demonstrated very thin skins. The TKPOTD  for seven years ago today and a second post On Taste poked fun at Bill Schmalfeldt.

The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt™ sent this cover letter with a copy of the motion to dismiss he filed in the current peace order case.

Oh my, whatever shall I do!

The Cabin Boy™ didn’t enjoy some of the comments the Gentle Readers made concerning his letterhead, and responded with the tweet in the post below.

The only problem with Microsoft is that they just have no taste. They have absolutely no taste, and I don’t mean that in a small way, I mean that in a big way. They don’t think of original ideas, and they don’t bring much culture into their product. You say, why is that important? Proportionally spaced fonts come from type-setting and beautiful books, that’s where one gets the idea. If it weren’t for the Mac, they would never have that in their products. So I’m saddened—not by Microsoft’s success, I have no problem with their success. They’ve earned their success, for the most part. I have a problem with the fact that they just make really third-rate products. Their products have no spirit to them. They have no spirit of enlightenment about them. They are very pedestrian. And the sad part is that a lot of customers don’t have a lot of that spirit either.

However, Job’s was right, and so were the Gentle Readers.
