Serious Problems at Mungkie Assoc.
May 25th 2002
Mungkie systems have been in disarray since 20thMay due to a severe fire in the backup tape storage safe, and an employee rampage through the building with shotgun. It seems that one of the senior management could not take the strain of forced redundancy and "went postal"

removal of lots of bloat

Announcement May 16th 2002
Mungkie associates CEO Mesherat Ungkie has enforced severe disciplinary measures against development and marketing staff. Forced resignations of head of development: jef sturgeon and head of public relations algy badatituud had to be made as they were damaging public perceptions of the company.

Former head of PR algy badatituud said: "Fuck those fucking mother fucking fuckers they can go fuck themselves, im fucked if i aint fucking gonna fuck them fuckers up bad. they'll regret fuckin with me, im one fucking bad ass fucking mutha fucker"

Announcement April 10th 2002
Mungkie associates are a major player in the Linux Media convergence and internet applications arena. We have a strong financial portfolio and strategic partnerships with other industry leaders.
The mungkie assoc. VC group has been investing heavily in ITV digital as we envisige HDTV convergence hitting the mainstream real soon now. So you can expect some major reinvestment in 2diskXwin as we pumpback some of the profits from our DT investment.
Mungkie increased toxic waste dumping program, in order to cash in on 150% tax relief on contaminated land development.
Major further investments are being finalised from BT, UBM, CBM, DIGItWAT
Engineering workforce have been cut by 95% and PR and marketing have been increased to 300, in order to rightsize our operation for the market.
IPO is sheduled for late August 2002.
We have had our highly qualified workforce of Mungkies randomly hitting terminal
keyboards for the last two months, but have not come up with the works of shakespeare. This is partly due
to bananna shortages incurred by trade agreements between the U S of A and europe and a severe drought in
Zaire, the lack of potasium in
mungkies diet led to seratonin and cerebropuslin reduction in neuro fluids causing low code productivity.
Unfortunatly the mythical mungkie month has gone out the window,
but a new version of Mungkie assoc. 2diskxwin did emerge from the code mills. We hope
you find it agreable even if not as highly polished as usual.
Some twat suggested we implement ssh and ssl and cookies and some form of scripting dialog and sort out the athena scrollbars???. Christ I dunno why we listen to these wankers but we do for some reason!.
- https ssl support
- cookie support
- libnsl added to /lib/
- modules recompiled for new kernel
- dialog added
- removal of EBOT
- scrollbar tweaks
A number of improvements have been made in the XML pipes, the athena abstraction layer has been
further integrated into the system as the port to microwindows continues.
Browser mem overflows that were causing intermittent segfaults have been fixed, major code size
The following new features have been added:
- bad attitude helper(the mungkie managment relations system, swear like a trooper!)
- Evil bastard operator tools(really ruin a users day)
- Cheese dynamics context apropriation modeling(cheese is the way forward)
- Sense of humour removal(now you can get mungkie linux with all the foul mouthed jokes and bad attitude removed, also giving a 200% improvement in performance)
- FUD'u'like. yes more meaningless bullshite is available.
- ICA setup script(now you just run it and the linux ICA client will be installed)
