It must be a slow news day, or a server glitch, or deja vu...
My RSS feeds alerted me today to the fact that a new article had gone live on bink.nu reporting that Scott Richter has agreed to pay Microsoft UK$7 million - but... that news sure does look familiar.
Edit: Hm, the above URL won't load ATM - did Bink.nu delete the article? 8624 is still there...
Huh? Neowin have reported on the same article:
I'm sure I've read this somewhere before... ages ago... yep, according to Wikipedia all this happened in August 2005:
And bink.nu have already reported on it once before - on 9 August 2005:
As have Neowin - again on 9 August 2005:
The article being cited by bink.nu and Neowin is dated 11 August 2005:
Hmm, two different news sites, both reporting on an article from back in 2005... I can't blame that on a server glitch.. Bink went live first so we'll blame him Maybe this is why the term "gestetner sites" was invented. Hands up how many of you are old enough to remember using a mimeograph? Yes, I remember using one, way back when I was in High School - I suppose that makes me officially old.
