“We got the hate mail, we got the group of people who interpreted our agreement as validating SCO or endorsing SCO or any number of things,” said [EV1Servers.net's CEO Robert] Marsh.
“All of a sudden we went from being reasonably good guys to being, in some people’s eyes, akin to the devil. And that’s certainly something that weighs heavy on our minds, because we always want to do the right thing,” he said.
So how does Marsh feel about the deal nearly a month later? “Would I do it again?
I’ll go on the record as saying that,” Marsh said. “I certainly know a lot more today than I knew a month ago, in a lot of respects.”
While it’s good to admit to your mistakes Robert, this is too little too late. A late “um, I’m so sorry guys, can we be friends again?” seems half-assed and doesn’t cut it. If you truly regret this business decision, some action needs to take place to resolve it and the contract needs to be broken, retracted, dissolved, or whatever EV1 can do to wriggle it’s way out of SCOs “I won’t sue you…I promise” contract.
I’ve already migrated my server away from EV1Servers.net and I won’t be going back.

It was bound to happen sooner or later. The latest Swiss Army Knife will include a USB drive with 256MB of Flash Memory. Victronix teamed up with Swissbit, makers of a USB watch, for this project. There are thousands of USB Toys out there. I think this time they finally are on to something.
Swiss Army Knives have had a history of having an odd yet cool appliance from time to time. Personally, I haven’t carried a multitool or Swiss Army since my days in Boy Scouts. Now I’m excited to go pick up those lost pieces of childhood and stake my ownership the famous brand once more. And with a decent 256MB, I’ll be able to store quite a bit of useful information and documents that I can port around from home to work to school. I am already an owner of a couple of flash drives, but they seem to get lost (or forgotten) at the last place that I used them. Now, whenever I need a quick drive, I’ll always have one on me thanks Victronix and Swissbit.
