Off to Paris and Alcatel Lucent

I am off to Paris for an Alcatel Lucent event. It will be interesting to see how things go for a company that is in pretty serious trouble -- major losses, higher job cuts planned. Alcatel was a major initial supplier of switches to Lattelecom, though I suspect they are leaning toward Ericsson for their network upgrade, not the least because Ericsson, I believe, supplies their DSL equipment.
Otherwise fairly quiet on the Latvian front. Must ask someone soon how things are going with the half-mother (TeliaSonera).
I am also considering trashing the new Firefox 2.0 on my Macbook (Intel Core 2 Duo) as it seems to work at 1980s dial-up speed. Writing this on Camino, which shows all of the blogger.com system's options like bold, italic, the link thingy, which all vanish on Safari.

Juris, in case you didn't hear about this yet: http://www.expressen.se/index.jsp?a=877900

The entire Telia Sonera management is according to this newspaper under serious threat. According to Swedish TV8 the threat has a link to Russia (regardless wether it is true or not about Russians behind it in this particular case, these kind of st*nking sc*mb*gs with that background in common appear to show up everywhere on any dirty scene these days - don't they?).
