And you expect a company like MediaZone to be using clueless trolls
posting from anonymous relays (or like the posts in December and January,
through cracked windoze boxes) everywhere except California. That makes
sense to you I'm sure. I suppose you also expect CCH to be flogging
their services from anonymous servers, and you buy pharmaceuticals from
the same sources.

That's stretching pretty far, isn't it? Or have you subscribed and are
hoping it's not fake. If you paid by credit card and can dispute the

Try using google - It's remotely possibly you might learn something.

What evidence do you think you have that this might be possible? By the
way - make up your mind which is a subsidiary of which.

See, that's another reason you'd never make it in IT. You obviously
know nothing about computers, never mind networking. You might want
to check the 'alt.folklore.urban' newsgroup - there's a pretty
apropos thread that might even hint a solution to you. But then again,
it _is_ technical, even if it probably is fake.

Is that what you were taught by your bean counter instructor? Here's
a free clue - consult a lawyer before you try that, lest the state
of California Department of Industrial Relations comes down on your
a$$. Think I'm joking? Ask a rather large chain of stores with a
California headquarters near the Oakland/Bay bridge about that. (Can't
believe they were _that_ stupid.)
