Smart person from the Internet, asking about my jsdraw hack...

Hey Brad, b∎ck here... javascript whiteboard question...

Want to know if you could make me a 500px by 500px whiteboard, no chat, and
a wipe button that requires a password to wipe, would be willing to give $10
for it... let me know.


-b∎ck/Sean

ps just using this for fun btw.
I reply:
Sorry, I'm not doing contracting work.
He replies:
Contracting? This is just for fun...
I joke:
$10 isn't fun.  :-)
He asks:
Can i buy the source from you or is it free?
(minutes pass, he replies agains)
Lol i could have just asked for it but i want to give you something
in return, whats wrong with that?
(hours pass, I'm working, not checking personal email)
whatever punk ass bitch!
Umm... okay? Now you're definitely not getting a $10 copy of my open source code. Punk ass bitch!

Update, 2008-02-13: Sean called me (my GrandCentral number is public) and politely asked that I remove his name, email and handle. Seemed like a nice guy. I can respect that. Removed.

Wtf are you doing?

Take the piss out of this guy all you want fair enough, but don't post his personal details on the internet, thats fucking stupid. Hackers would love that type of information and your just like handing out. Stop being a dickhead and get rid of it.

Re: Hey there Brad

Didn't you know? It's called Open Source Stupid - now we can all use it for our own needs!

Seriously tho, Brad's not a corporation by himself. If someone harasses him, it's their problem for being that way.
