LinuxPR: Merry Christmas, MicrosoftDec 26, 1999, 18:14 (7 Talkback[s])
"Small Linux-oriented consultancy gives software giant Microsoft a Christmas gift."
"In keeping with the Christmas spirit, Michael Chaney, owner and president of Michael Chaney Consulting Corporation of Nashville, TN, today paid Microsoft's outstanding bill for the "passport.com" domain name to Network Solutions. The $35 invoice was dated October 2, 1999, and was currently unpaid, according to information available at Network Solutions' website. As of December 25, 1999, Microsoft's Hotmail service was unavailable, possibly because of passport.com being unavailable. Hotmail uses Microsoft's passport.com service to authenticate users."
"When asked if he expected reimbursement for the payment, Chaney responded, "It's a Christmas present from me to Microsoft. If they don't wish to accept a gift, that's their choice, but I'm certainly not going to expect reimbursement."
