If you have $682,450,750 you can change the world!
I just found this on reddit.
This look hopeful! It looks like Jon von Tetzchner is fighting for Opera.
Here is more from Reuters:

"The board lacks knowledge and that has to have consequences,"
Opera founder Jon von Tetzchner, who holds just above 10 percent of the company, told Reuters on the sidelines of the annual general meeting.
"I think this board shows lack of ambition," he said.
I'm just keeping my fingers crossed over this. There is too much to loose if Facebook gets Opera.

Opera CEO Lars Boilesen responded to the rumors Thursday with a strong no comment but not without saying he hopes to keep the his company and his browser out of anybody's clutches.

Well, here is something to get you going. According to the latest rumor from TNW, Opera Software is looking for a potential buyer, ranging from Yandex, Google (we don’t see the deal being approved by the EU) and most importantly, Facebook.
If these news are true, that would explain why Opera is dropping Unite, Widgets, Voice, IRC, BitTorrent, etc... Unite wouldn't go well with Facebook.
Could this be something Jon S. von Tetzchner saw coming??
I just hope these news aren't true.
The forums are starting to explode with comments.
What a horrible start to the Memorial Day weekend.
I will keep updating this blog entry as more news arrive.
The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying the Dragon spacecraft and the ashes of Scotty.
If you believe that Unite should continue to be supported. Please Sign This Petition.
Opera also will kill IRC, BitTorrent, Voice and Widgets.
Many people still don't know these changes are coming.

When Opera Unite was introduced, I called it a platform for running private web applications - no need to log in to any server/site, I have my own server/site, which immediately has access to all my data on my hard drive. It is something of great value. How are you going to provide it with extentions..?? It was also designed in beatifully simple way - easy to use, started right from panels. Click, point a folder and done! No waiting for uploading files anywhere. Awesome! Will you move the Unite applications to extentions so they work this way? Even if you will somehow move these functionalities into extentions, there are tons of extentions now - how can I find this good old, reliable Unite Applications? Please make a separate category or distinguish/mark them somehow. Finally, I would like to remind you a post announcing Opera Unite. It points out the advantages: http://my.opera.com/desktopteam/blog/2009/06/16/freedom
- What about sharing files directly from my computer - without need to upload them to any server/dropbox and such - which is very troublesome especially for big files. Being independent from such services.
- What about sharing pictures with friends directly from my computer - hassle free, just point to a folder with pictures and they are shared. No need to upload them to MyOpera Albums, flickr or anywhere...
- What about streaming my whole music collection directly from my computer - no need to copy/upload and take it anywhere. Ability to play it from any place...What has changed since then? I cannot see these ideas devaluated. They are invariably attractive and lively today. And what about the vision of Opera Unite described on the page below - the vision of Taking the Web into our own hands, one computer at a time? Do you leave us alone on cold, with the described problems and no solution..? http://dev.opera.com/articles/view/labs-taking-the-web-into-our-own-hands-one-computer-at-a-time/
Looking for freedom? Do you want to share things with who you want, when you want? Do you want to stay in touch with your friends, chat and collaborate, without your data being at the mercy of middlemen? Now, with your own web server, you'll be ready to do all this directly from your computer.
The two way internet is here, and with Opera, you're at both ends whenever you run it.

After hearing the news of Greg Ham passing, I found out that Colin Hay was going to be performing and signing copies of his new CD and vinyl release of Gathering Mercury at Record & Tape Exchange. Which is about an hour drive to where I live.

I took these pictures with my little cheese cheap cell phone. So bear with me!
It was a little strange to see him perform because he was still grieving the lost of Greg Ham. He dedicated the song Gathering Mercury to Greg after an almost crying introduction to it.
What's going on this month? First Dick Clark, and now one of the member of one of my favorite bands I listened as a kid.
Men At Work was one of those bands I couldn't stop humming their tunes when I was a kid. I was just listening to them the other day and now this.
Greg Ham 1953 - 2012
Dick Clark 1929 - 2012
New Year's Eve will never be the same.
Dick Clark, the legendary music industry veteran and American Bandstand host, died on Wednesday morning in Los Angeles of a heart attack, Clark's rep has confirmed.
I remember watching "American Bandstand" and "Dick Clark's in Concert" back in the day.
