Lee Gomes of the WSJ explains that his story was not doctored by MSNBC.
Coool. I may have found a bug in Opera 5. Here's a screen shot of the performance monitor on my machine. I noticed that Opera was using a pretty constant 20 percent of the CPU even when idling. Sure enough, when I quit Opera, the monitor started hovering around 0 percent when idling (that's how I like it). So maybe there's some configuration option I should turn off. BTW, I made Opera my default browser, so when I click on a link in my emailer it automatically launches Opera if it isn't running.
I thought you'd all be pleased to know that I went to the doctor, got some antibiotics and was told that I don't have any immediately life-threatening diseases. I'm feeling pretty good about that even though I'm still sick as a dog.
AP: "A newly formed company hopes to tap what Alaska's North Slope has in abundance--isolation, cold temperatures and natural gas--to create a huge Internet data storage center."
Jim Romenesko quotes Megan Doscher: "I am the MSNBC editor at WSJ.com. The British paper's story about MSNBC editing one of WSJ's articles isn't true -- an early version of the Microsoft story was published to MSNBC by one of our editors, and unbeknownst to us, it was never updated with the final version. We got two pieces of reader mail on Friday morning telling us that MSNBC was 'editing' the story, and we checked and realized the production error and fixed it right away. We also explained what happened to the two readers who wrote in. Actually, the version that appeared on MSNBC was also the version that appeared in both the two-star and three-star editions of the print Wall Street Journal. It was different only from the (very late) four star."

WSJ: Microsoft uses open source software. "Even while mounting a new campaign against open-source software, [Microsoft] has quietly been using such free computer code in several major products, as well as on key portions of a popular Web site -- despite denying last week that it did so."
Register: "MSNBC has been caught doctoring copy originating from the Wall Street Journal to make it more favourable to the news channel's co-owner Microsoft. The changes introduced by MSNBC also had the effect of removing references to Microsoft competitors."
