LXer: SCO inks last-second life-saving Unix pact

Published at LXer:

After a nuclear holocaust, the only thing left alive will be roaches... and the SCO Group. The company that thinks it owns some lines of Linux and that everyone else thought was fated for Chapter 7 bankruptcy death this week has instead revealed to the world that it is the immortal Highlander. Just before a crucial liquidation hearing in bankruptcy court today, SCO Group chief executive Darl McBride inked a life-saving deal with a company called Gulf Capital Partners. The investment firm is backed by the high-profile equity investor Stephen Norris, the very man who pondered buying SCO the last time it faced bankruptcy destruction.

SCO = roach

I've always found that excessive force in necessary in order to kill roaches.

Notable, but unrelated incident:
In my college chemistry class a large roach just walked in through the door (or rather under it), some girls sitting in front of me started kicking it and hitting it ... this failed to affect the roach in any real way, it just kept coming. When it got to me, I knew what needed to be done, I gather my chi energy and kicked it with all my might, and it cut the roach in half. The front half kept going, so I again gather chi and kicked it a second time with even more force, this time it became one with the carpet ... the girls were impressed, and rightfully so

Roaches are tough little beasties. In grad school we once froze one in a dry ice-ethanol bath, then thawed it. No discernible ill effects. Had to spin it in a centrifuge at 40,000 RPM to kill it.

Interesting. I have found that spraying a roach with the cleaner 409 is a very effective way to kill it. Maybe we should try spraying the SCO leadership with 409? Also, roaches don't like to be shocked. If you lay down a parallel set of conductive tape and connect it the standard house voltage, roaches hate this. It seems to lock them in place, while they vibrate quietly. Although, I guess they could really be screaming, but I just couldn't hear it.
