in reply to Professional Employees and Works for Hire

I've been aware of this ever since I took full time employment with my current employer. It was even pointed out to me that legally my employer could confiscate my home network claiming that any work I did to make it function was their 'intellectual' property.

It is a condition of employment that precludes open participation in Open Source... Or even working on one's own website/domain as it no longer truely is one's own.

    What?!? They can confiscate property you have purchased with your own money on your own time? What next, confiscate your kids because you raised them?!?!?

[LanX]: not my code ...
[choroba]: yeah, sounds like one of the strings is not flagged as UTF-8
[choroba]: which usually means its input wasn't handled correctly
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, I think that would be the good solution
[LanX]: I suspect the first string which comes from the DB ...
[LanX]: ... but this part is already in production for a year now
[Corion]: LanX: The "good" approach here would be to use the appropriate DBI parameters to make the driver decode strings properly. But that will have a ripple-on effect of messing up all the places where manual decoding happens ;)
[LanX]: which means albeit being broken UTF8 it'll be handled correctly
[LanX]: and the problem only occurs since we changed the emails to base64
[LanX]: my main problem will be to cnvince my colleagues that our productive code is broken oO ... so in the end I will just make a workaround :-/
