Microsoft Seems Anxious To Get Rid Of Software

How To Cost Microsoft Money:

Microsoft has a form on their website that you can fill out to get a copy of Windows XP SP2 on CD at no charge (with free shipping by Purolator).
I ordered one.
Then, at the Order Confirmation screen, I clicked Back, then Refresh, then Retry (since the form had to be posted again). I did this 149 times.
I got 150 order-confirmation emails.

And guess what… yup, you guessed right:

So you can imagine my surprise when I get a call from Purolator saying “we have two huge bags of envelopes here for you, please come pick them up at the depot on Grant Timmins Drive”.
