If you are going to subscribe to threads and have notifications sent to you via email, you must use a valid email address.  You would think that this is a fairly obvious requirement but apparently some people just don't understand that concept.  Cleaning over 1,600 emails out of the postmaster account was not the highlight of my morning.  This time I just unsubscribed the offenders from the threads and disabled their notification priveleges.  The actions that I take in the future depend on my mood at the time and can range from just cleaning up the mess to death.  So if you want to spin the wheel of death, keep on subscribing to threads and have notifications sent to a bogus email address.

SCO Sues Santa Claus, by Monsieur Bobo
Sunday, December 25 2005 @ 12:02 AM EST

Lindon, Utah
December 25, 2005

The SCO Group, owners of the Unix operating system and every operating system that vaguely resembles Unix, announced today that it has filed suit against S. Claus Industries headquartered at the North Pole for violation of it's intellectual property.

"Mr. Claus was an early licensee of Unix and ran his entire operation on Unix systems," SCO representative Blake Stowell said. "About 10 years ago, he stopped sending royalty checks, and we discovered that he had illegally migrated to Linux".

SCO concluded that he had stolen numerous features of Unix and incorporated them into his business. Mr. Stowell noted that "Santa's elves" are merely an obfuscated copy of the Unix concept of "daemons". In addition, he asserted that previously Mr. Claus had only used a single big reindeer, but was now using eight tiny reindeer instead, an idea that he clearly stole from the SysV implementation of SMP.

Mr. Claus denied the allegation. "The truth is that I was having a couple of beers with my buddy, Donald Becker, and when he learned that there were hundreds of tiny reindeer available, he suggested I build a Beowulf cluster out of them".

Claus also admitted that he had migrated his back office operations from SCO Openserver to Linux. "You just can't keep track of whether 6 billion people have been naughty or nice on an antiquated 32 bit operating system" he said.

Mr. Stowell countered, "We don't have any business process patents, or any other kind of patents either for that matter, but if we did, Claus would clearly be in violation of them".

In addition to stealing features of Unix to run his business, SCO also alleges that Claus violated his Unix contract by leaking methods and concepts of Unix to Professor Andrew Tanenbaum and Linus Torvalds who subsequently used them in their own operating systems. "All we are saying is look at the map." Stowell said. "All of these individuals were located really far north, and it doesn't take an MIT rocket scientist to figure out what must have happened."

"This will really rock the Christmas gift industry," analyst Laura DiDio said. "Given the cloud hanging over Claus, I'm recommending that people give Microsoft products, and only Microsoft products, as gifts this year".

Analyst Rob Enderle stated that he wasn't surprised. "The fact is that I could always count on Bill Gates to throw buckets of money at me, and Claus never gave me anything."

SCO President Darl McBride defended the lawsuit while acknowledging that it would be unpopular. "Look, we aren't all sitting around the fireplace singing Christmas carols. This is a business," he said. "We don't want Claus to change his business. We just think we should get a cut of every package he delivers."

So I accidentally called a wrong number this morning.  As soon as the answering machine picked up, I knew
it was the wrong one so I just hung up.  While I was on the phone calling the correct number, this bitch calls
back and leaves this message.  WTF??  Anyway, here it is in case you guys want to get a chuckle out of it.

And yeah, I called her back and told her she was a "stupid cunt". She hung up on me.

For you IE users, grab this and check it out.

Even though I don't use IE, I did install this toolbar on it so I can use it to report phishing sites.  I made my first report today and hopefully, will be receiving my fabulous prize very soon.

./edit  WOOT!  While I was typing this message, I got this email from Netcraft:

Last night I was thinking about the pvp ranks and the titles associated with it.  I was struck with a nifty idea and created a new toon named Punishment.  I'm anxious to get her to the rank of Corporal.   8)

Phone Number:


Payed 75 dollars for an essay. Got an essay that was mostly copied and pasted. I inquired several times about the legitamacy of their business nevermind the fact that they plagurized. They returned this e-mail;"we already delivered the paper, thank you" Go figure, dont trust the internet - and write your own paper. I hope they get what's coming. I payed 75 dollars, for something a junior high kid could have and probably did do! Pissed off is an understatement!

Essayrelief sucks.> this needs to be accessible on Google. Had I found one complaint on them before, I would have hired writers that can be trusted. >please post this.

The part that makes me laugh out loud is that he bitches about them giving him a plagiarized (which he can't spell) paper that he can plagiarize as his own work.
