Hi Randal,
I agree, stealing is stealing. If you don't want to pay for it, don't use it.

I just think it brings up some interesting issues.

In all honesty, when I started getting serious about programming, I was a kid. I used cracked copies of software and when things started actually working out, (ie I turned a buck), I "legitimized" all my software. At the time I couldn't afford it and it was exactly how I justified it. Hell, my development machine, a Pantera Pentium 66 (Step 0) set me back $5,000 and that pretty much ate up my $5.50 an hour (How times change!).

    [marto]: I think the long term solution would be to have sysadmins that do their job, so I don't have to do everything :P
    [marto]: they already have an entire BMC patrol system, which they disabled, because it was sending out spurious messages. So rather than fix the issue, or even find out what it was, they turned it off. No messages, can't be any problems, right?
    [Corion]: marto: But having open tickets / incidents increases the pressure on them ;) Of course, likely your contract / SLA specifies an upper limit for the number of incidents :-D
    [Corion]: marto: Ow ...
    [marto]: Corion They don't get into trouble for the number of tickets, or even breached tickets they have
    [marto]: which is a core issue with the client
    [Corion]: marto: Yeah, I can imagine that
    [choroba]: create a ticket if the number of tickets reaches a limit
    [choroba]: how deep meta could it go?
