Amir, trolling is great when it has some truth in it.
The facts are:
1. I wrote the code for the new version of the site, made the
sources accessible and released the basic package under the GPL (available
as a tar ball from http://ladypine.org/make_site-1.tar.gz) when I was not
affiliated with the Technion at all.
2. Haifux is currently managed by three people, one from Haifa university,
one partially from the Technion, and one from the industry.
3. Haifux was founded by one person from the industry and one from the
This means that Haifux has always been led by people from outside the
Technion in collaboration (sometimes) with people from the Technion. This
is why Haifux takes place in the evening, unlike all the Technion seminars.
This is why we have not had the key to the PC cabinet for years. This is
why we struggle to get a regular room. This is why we have trouble with car
permits. This is why we fight to get our talks announced in the Technion.
In short, we have been trying to get INTO the Technion for years, we
certainly have no problem getting out.
