Just a quick note to say "THANKS" to everybody - today I was able to
finally pay off my computer using money collected by hpa (Peter Anvin)
from various people. The collection brought in USD $750, and together
with some other donations (including a fim 1000 EuroCheque) I was able
to pay the final rate today. I'd also like to thank everybody else who
has sent me either money or any other encouragement (ranging from
postacards and T-shirts (!) to beer-money and actual beer). 

I'm not making a "hall of fame" of people who have paid me money: I
might forget somebody (who'd hate me for the rest of his life), and
anyway, contributions in the form of patches/bug-reports etc have been
at least as valuable (and I haven't kept track of those either. Shame
on me). You know who you are,

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM
