Subject: What would an SCO win cost them?
I was thinking about this the other day, and actually wondered aloud, why go through this whole scam thing? So you make a few bucks - quite a few, of course - screwing people out of their money. At what cost, though? Your company, SCOXE, is now the most hated tech company in the world, even more than Microsoft, who helped fund the scam in the first place. The cast of characters involved have lost any and all credibility in the business world, and it looks to me as if the only people they will be able to deal/work with, would be each other. Would you trust Darl enough to start another company with him?
I am not generally an angry, bitter man, but I say this with complete sincerity; when this scam is finally terminated, I will be incredibly happy. When the perpetrators of this crime get sent up the river, I will be incredibly happy. If some of them "get away with it", they really won't get away with anything. For the rest of their miserable lives, they will have to keep looking over their shoulders, because someone will be after them... to get their money back, to get revenge for being shafted, or maybe just to extract some small amount of vigilante justice, and it will probably be from a fellow participant in the scam. You have already seen how fast they can turn on each other in the Canopy cases. One man is already dead from this scandal. I would not be surprised in the least to see more in the future. Depending on who it is, I'll probably end up being incredibly happy about that, too. What a sad state of affairs they have wrought. Oh well, you live by the sword, you die by the sword. The time for turning the other cheek has LONG since been passed. I'm sorry if this offends you, but it's my opinion, and after all the shit SCOXE has pulled, I am quite entitled to it.

Well, I take some comfort from the possibility that, given a really good outcome, the only cheek Darl will be turning will be below the waist, and not of his own volition.
So, no, I'm not offended - the principal players went into this with malice aforethought, and deserve the roughrst ride the justice system (and their new cellmates) can give them.
Another real temptation would be to monitor for names (like Stowell etc) to pop up in new appointments to future employers, and to make sure that you never buy a product from those companies.

Subject: Requesting SCOXE certificates
I would like to buy 5 or 10 shares, and have each one printed separately. I have never purchased stock of any kind in the past, so I have no idea as to how to do this.
Can this be done?
If so, how much would I pay in total?
If you would like to keep this off the board, my e-mail address is in my profile. Thanks.
P.S. I do not like this stock at this price. I've heard that Darl does, though.
Also, if I told you *why* I want them, you wouldn't believe it. NOT for TP, though - I have plenty of that.

Subject: SCOXE License for nada, zilch, nothing
Tell you what, biff. I'll buy a license - ONE COPY of SCOSource - if you can tell me, with line numbers, kernel numbers, and changelog dates, EXACTLY WHICH LINES OF SCOXE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INCLUDED IN LINUX, your license allows me to use. Identify exactly what code YOU wrote.
NO WEASEL LANGUAGE
NO SELECTIVE QUOTES
Just the specific code that belongs to SCOXE.
Of course, I'll also need to see ALL OF the copyright transfer documentation assigning those copyrights EXPLICITLY TO THE SCO GROUP; no third party bullshit on this front, either.
If you can do that, I've got your $699.00 right here.
Otherwise, SHUT THE FUCK UP. FOREVER.
