Comment Re:That's too much (Score 1) 379

Well, then the solution is simple. You two get together and come to some agreement on how much he's going to pay you for each email that ends up in one of your inboxes. When you receive an email (or many), send him an itemized invoice and he can send you a payment. If there's a problem, just take him to court with the contract in hand and demand payment.

If he had asked me, I would have agreed to $10 per email -- quite a bargain compared to the $100 (plus damages) he agreed to when he decided to spam.

If you're ever in the neighborhood, a tour of the mine and the lab are well worth the visit.

Comment Hmm. What's Vixie say? (Score 1) 237

I predict some pacing up and down the halls and maybe a bit of hand waving in the near future.

I still want to see it reported and publicized.

These guys are all doing business in California. I wish they would be nailed based on this:
California's Business & Professions Code 17200 prohibits "unfair or fraudulent business act[s] or practice[s] and unfair, deceptive, untrue or misleading advertising".

Submission + - The end is nigh for XP

SlinkySausage writes: "Computer makers have been told they'll no longer be able to get Windows XP OEM by the end of this year, despite strong ongoing demand for the OS. Analysts and computer makers are wondering if the move is premature given Vista's ongoing performance and compatibility issues. Dell recently said it would reintroduce XP on a range of machines due to customer demand but Microsoft will only allow this until the end of the year."
