Sumbich. Technical Difficulties Turn Into Legal Difficulties!

Turns out the Windows 7 on newPC is a pirated copy. Arrrr! I'm in an email back-and-forth with Microsizzle on how to get a fresh shiny new license and an OS installation DVD so I can burn off the computer whatever evil thing the former owner of the PC did to get Windows on there against the obvious intention of the people who had to pay programmers to write it. Run-on sentences: I have them.

Software pirates: you suck. You suck a little less if you give me a free computer that will run the latest software, but you still suck.

The humorous part: he'll usually steal whatever for-profit software he wants but he'll donate to shareware authors. Go figure. Yes, he went to government school.
