I receive an e-zine from Network Computing magazine, and occasionally I find something of note in it. This time there was an offer for a free t-shirt if I fill out an info request form. I did this once before with RackSpace and received a great t-shirt.

The t-shirt is being offered by a software company called Neoteris, and the app, in particular, is Instant Virtual Extranet. So, I do my über-geek best, and fill out the form. You would not beleive the email I received:

    Was that comment for me, or someone at your firm?

I would have to imagine that our buddy Jim would be in some hot water if this were to make it back to his boss. Can anyone say free software?
