A funny email
« on: December 29, 2009, 06:53:27 am »
I received this email this morning.  I got a chuckle:

hi, how about a free tryout for your program? i think 50$ is too high for this software with one key per pc, and i better hack it for these money or just write my own soft later when i have time. so if you give me a free tryout i probably then will be too lazy to make such things as dissassembling and figuring out what i can do to make it work as full version. btw, im from russia and i state that information must be free you could release your software as opensource instead, and not to ask such money from this not so good piece of software (i just want to use it with my soundcard usbdac now and i still didnt have done my own software). thanks.

Hmmmmmmmmm...

This guy sounds like a true blue LaserBoy user!  ;D

It's always a good idea to insult a software engineer while you are asking for a free copy of his application.

Lol

 If he spent his time doing more productive things, he could afford the program and still come out ahead. 

Unfortunately, the same goes for me.

  I could pass along a copy of LWave complete with an extra utility designed especially for breaking-in new scanners (and tweeters). :)
