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.


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.

Man the comments on this are hilarious. I love how the commenting behavior exactly mimics the email behavior. Also, I went to play with the drawing app for a second and drew some doodles which were erased mid-stroke with the chat message "WIPED FUCK YOU!". Rad.
