It turns out that all DeVry students have to pay a new technology fee for the privelege of being anally raped with a chainsaw by NecroSoft. MacroStiff will give us deserving college students those programs which we are taking courses that use "for free" ... provided we pay said fee. It doesn't matter if we already have the program in question -- we still get the fee.
Lovely. Just lovely.
Votania's Dave laughs at me extensively when I tell him this, and taunts me with the superiority of Linux.
