10/18 SNR II
- Darl gets a nice friendly letter from the SEC. Well, ok, he actually got the letter way back in May, but they didn't put it on EDGAR until October 12th. I'm not enough of a financial type to know whether this kind of delay is normal or not. Basically the feds want a bit of clarification regarding a previous Baystar-related filing, asking:
Selling Stockholders, page 8
1. Please confirm, if true, that neither of the two selling
stockholders are broker-dealers or affiliates of registered
Item 12. Undertakings, page II-2
2. Item 512(a) of Regulation S-K was recently amended in Release
No. 33-8591. Please revise your undertakings as appropriate.
As of right now, we don't have a copy of SCO's response, assuming they responded.
- Poking around on Flickr, it turns out there are over a thousand images tagged "SCO". Many of them (800+) are from one guy who has a trove of OldSCO pics from the late 90's, mostly of Christmas parties and other corporate events.
- Nobbutl (with some help from stats_for_all) has put together a great chart of SCO's allegations and what's become of them.
- More precious SCO IP discovered! Seems that while they've got basically no patents, copyrights, trademarks, or trade secrets, they do "own" a few IANA assigned ports, although their SCO Copy Protection Daemon (!) doesn't play nice, and runs on port 488, which is assigned to someone else.
- A couple of howto pieces on setting up MMDF or Sendmail on your SCO Unix box and configuring either one to talk to your Exchange server(!).
- More quips from the Age of SCO Fatigue at Blogging Ottinger, The Prepiscene Review and Pan's MySpace blog.
- Another mention of the IP-Wars story about SCO that made Slashdot recently.
- SGI's just emerged from Chapter 11, and is soon to be a pure Linux-on-Intel company. Is it too much to hope for that they'll also bring back the old logo while they're at it?
- A blog post at LinuxWorld daydreaming about Google's data centers.
