He Just Can't Get Enough...Well, look who's back! First, the backstory for those who don't know it.
Now, I post on a website called boards.ie. It has a web design section. I am, as you know, not a (shudders) web designer myself, but I do like to observe, so to speak. There was some inane argument, I don't remember the details, and at some point I noticed that one poster was running PHP on IIS. While not criminal, this is unusual enough to draw comment, if only as a curiosity, and so I did. Resulting in a hissy fit to end all hissy fits. And him saying he was going to the Garda (police) in the morning. Really. Well, he was banned from the forum, I wrote a few rude posts about him here, and he backed down rather quickly. Until now.
One of my posts links to a page on his blog. Quelle Horreur! He has decided, perversely, that this is a copyright violation. After a few months. Yes, copyright. (This is the same boy who slandered me in public before, remember). LINKING to his page. "You can buy the Irish Times in newsagents. Quick, release the lawyers". Remind you of anyone? Now, it has been established at some length that you are allowed link to websites, with the provisio that the website you link to does not advocate doing something illegal. Even then, it is not clear-cut. So, why the new weird hissy fit? Who knows? He still seems to be upset about me saying one of his websites was hideous...
I hadn't been going to play with this one any more, out of a vague feeling of pity, but he's so fun!
Oh, his latest message, sent my way via satellite (he's probably preparing to use a death ray on me), implies that because I know about SQL injection (an essential piece of knowledge for any database programmer, not that I'd consider myself an (ugh) database programmer) that logically means I'll use this to, erm, fire ICBMs at him or something, I'm not sure. I wonder does he do this to lots of people, or has he just got a thing for me?
Hmm, so who is he? He seems to run this thing. He has a hugely confused view of the history of IT. That's about all I know for the moment. Oh, and here's what his nickname means :)
