    Heh. There's some amusing stuff in this article.

    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2005/12/09/outlaw_pirates/

    First off, it says:

    " first came to light after Microsoft received a number of complaints
    from Zoobon customers unhappy with the quality of the products they had
    been sold."

    However, a little later it claims:

    "goods which were hard to distinguish from the genuine article."

    Yup, that sounds about right. LOL!

    Then they go on to:

    " out-of-court settlement was reached with the individuals behind Zoobon,
    under which they have ceased trading and given undertakings not to sell
    counterfeit Microsoft software in the future. They have also paid very
    substantial damages to Microsoft."

    Woohoo! One down, umpteen bazillion to go.

    A few minutes ago I attempted to give a flying fsck,
    but the best I could do was to watch it skitter across the floor. (Anthony
