Welcome to the blog world, Microsoft

: So I go wandering Microsoft’s new blog space and the first blog I look at has this fascinating post, which I won’t quote in full:

PI=3.

    This is way too commercial of an attempt at giving people blog space by Microsoft. It illustrates that they just don’t “get” the blogging thing over there at Microsoft.

    Sun gets blogs. What “real” blogger would ever post a picture of Scott McNealy?

    The bitsonic page is a posting of the entire Da Vinci code in Simplified Chinese.

    It’s just a presentation of Pi out a whole bunch of decimal places. He means P=3.1…….etc. It’s not meaningless.

    I disagree with the post. Obviously it is 463 not 462. Morons.

    The post you cite is Chinese, as written in Unicode. Eventually, everyone will use Unicode, it’s available in Windows XP. It’s sort of the new ASCII – it accounts for every language in the world including the so-called “2-byte” alphabets and ideograms. If you enable “Unicode (UTF-8)” in your browser when you right click and go down to Encoding, you’ll see the Chinese too.
