Topic: Apple Fritters
Apparently Tim Bray managed to excuse himself from the setting Sun and found somebody to use his XML skills... such as they were. Why didn't Tim Bray come up with the 6826744 or 7076521 concepts if they were so "obvious" to those skilled in XML?
Maybe he'll tell us somewhere in here: 
Nothing personal, Tim. I just can't stand people who try to dodge intellectual property issues for the greater good of ones employers and think that equates to being a "good sport".

So, I have only one question.

If patent 6826744 and 7076521 are unenforceable, where are the flood of products that should be out there by now based on the patents?


We do see Microsoft pressing full steam ahead but that's to be expected. We know they have a license for 6826744 from July 2008.

Based on Microsoft's descriptions of Windows Mobile 7 they appear to be able to use 7076521.

but ...

We don't see Google, or Adobe or IBM trumpeting anything close.

Open-source? Amazon just licensed what Microsoft has. Just how "unenforceable" is this brave new web-based computing world?

Apparently not very.

If you don't believe it, simply enter a comment and explain why. I'm all ears... and fingers.

I think it safe to say VCSY shareholders past and present would like to know just who this person is and what his connection with the affairs around the company might be.

The burning question would need a satisfying answer as to how an individual can justify spending years on a daily basis attacking shareholders.

I think it's a question shareholders will pursue relentlessly until that question is answered for the indicated poster and all who have accommodated him.


I would agree the trashers do more to keep the VCSY story alive than all the posts shareholders make. An example:

Looks like the anti-VCSY crowd is up against a mass of longs who know the facts and can't be steamrolled as on other stock discussion boards.

As you can see the strategy to attempt to discredit VCSY management and shareholders is to make outlandish and slanderous statements, then to try to duck away and laugh it all off. This kind of behaviour has been going on for almost ten years from the same individual.

What does that make you think?

You should also consider the full range of such a poster's motivations.

Mrrfk and links to yelling "Bankrupt" just on the IBM board 
under a few aliases. 

Mrrfk asked for links to my statement that he yelled "Bankrupt
on various boards. In a few minutes I supplied a link to him 
saying GE would be bankrupt in 2 years. Now I have about a 
dozen links with 3 different aliases he used on the IBM board, 
Mmiirriirr, Whowhatwhywherewhen, and Reflect-on-this. 
Many of his other posts on the IBM board invoke the thought 
of "we are doomed" or "employees of this company will die of cancer." 

His handle of Piewhole is missing from that board, however he is 
addressed by that name by another VCSY investor, Portuno Diamo: 

Mirrorballz is not on the boards but we have this trace left: 

RB did not reinstate post on RB from it's inception to early 2003 
so we are missing various permutations of his handle for legofeel 
and others I may have overlooked or forgotten. 

Mmiirriirr 3 out of 15 posts on IBM board uses "Bankrupt" 

Whowhatwhywherewhen 4 out of 11 posts on IBM board uses "Bankrupt" 

Reflect-on-this 2 out of 4 posts on IBM board uses "Bankrupt"

Darn. What bar is this?

Yes I've posted concerning this subject before and here it is again because I know you won't be able to find it. You'll just end up in the wrong place listening to the wrong tune again.

I finally get REST. Wow.

It's what you morons always do because you follow the word of "journalists" who do what the "businessmen" say so the "editors" will sign the check.

Meanwhile, all you ignorant saps spend millions for crap you'll just have to modernize.

And, might I add for the truly intransigent and stupid:

Three reasons that REST is not RPC

I've gotten several comments saying that, at the end of the day, REST is just RPC. That's wrong, for at least 3 very reasons: 1) Each unique state in your protocol state machine has its own URI. That's different from an RPC endpoint that maintains a black...

"I was just joking..." is the typical response of crooks when caught. It's to be expected nobody accused of a crime takes the accusation seriously. They only get serious when they talk to their lawyer.
"Whatever." is what they say when they've been caught.
It only takes a little exploration to find the truth. The problem with most people is they simply don't care enough to know truth.

Yeah, I'd love to hear from the SEC about this over-hyped POS. Portuno still has his PUMPING website up with all the BS (his own and other's) about VCSY that caused a lot of naive investors to lose money thinking they were investing in something world-changing. What a JOKE (unless you got tricked by those LIES for big bux.) I'll just point them to it LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!

trixijude it's good that we have informed shareholders thanks for the article. I was just taken back by how so many of you are actually standing up in this forum keeping the faith about the company after all these years cause we certainly need better communication, and all of us have said this in various ways yet some of the bashers never hear this message while distorting the truth about many of us. I get tired being attacked by these shareless posters, and often ask myself what in the heck is there incentive being here in the first place since they hold NO shares. I believe in our patents, but it is frustrating when the CEO "to present" has not capitalized and built shareholder value. So when I see shareholders still keeping the faith about their investment it's quite moving. glty

Mindpix Corporation Discovers Identity of Notorious Corporate Cyber Basher 
5:48p ET January 11, 2010 (GlobeNewswire) 
Mindpix Corporation, a Nevada Corporation (Pink Sheets:MPIX), would like to inform their valued shareholders that after years of being senselessly attacked on the internet financialsites of InvestorsHub and RagingBull by someone posting by the name Sky-King, that they have finally been able to identify the Cyber Basher. The basher, David W. Pippy, employee of the Illinois State Comptroller's office, is currently working in an administrative position for Comptroller Daniel W. Hynes. Most shocking was that the notorious Sky-King posted over 1550 times on the government computer during regular business hours with the alleged purpose of driving down the price of MPIX and other publicly traded companies. David Pippy's alter ego, Sky-King, was created on the InvestorsHub Chat Board on April 16, 2003 and has continued until he was confronted on December 15, 2009. 

"We were alerted by a press release on Jan. 4, 2010 (PSGI.News) that had been a target of Mr. Pippy. David Pippy, admitted according to the press release, that he was the Sky-King who posted on InvestorsHub. Upon discovery of this information I contacted Mr. Pippy at his office in Springfield, Illinois and once I identified myself, Mr. Pippy said he didn't want to talk to me. I also contacted legal counsel for the Comptroller's office and was told that they investigated Mr. Pippy's computer after other complaints and Mr. Pippy admitted to using it to post his comments. However, surprisingly, their office has elected to turn the matter over to the SEC instead of pursuing the matter further themselves," stated Thomas E. Aliprandi, Chairman of Mindpix. 

"We are elated to finally know who this basher is and can use this information for moving forward in a positive and productive manner. MPIX will pursue David Pippy, and anyone else involved, with all legal resources available," says Aliprandi. "I want to personally thank MPIX's shareholders and let them know that we are going to deal swiftly with this malicious attack and move on to new heights. We value your support."

(By narbytoes - replying to basher Al) Re: nothing is (royalty) FREE....... 

"Number of Partners in the Microsoft Partner Program: 360,000 
Number of Partners Affiliated with Microsoft: over 640,000 
Number of Partner Companies in the World: 1.3 million 
Percentage of Microsoft Revenue Stemming from Partners: 95 percent 

I dont recall these players being mentioned in your analysis of the license agreement. Why is that? 

Are you suggesting VCSY licensed the patent and subsequent/associated software to 1.3 million companies in a single fee? Interesting 
"Percentage of Microsoft Revenue Stemming from Partners: 95 percent" 

Wow,....I wonder if the agreement only covered in house use....roughly five percent of Microsoft's revenue. Theres really nothing in the statement to indicate otherwise. Thats pretty cheap cosidering what five percent amounts to...but then I wonder what 95 percent amounts to? 

We must assume 1.3 million companies would not have to pay 2.9 million. 

1 300 000 x 2 900 000 = 3 770 000 000 000. 

What is a sublicense I'm just playing around, mind you,...but microsoft provides indemnity to its partners regarding whats a reasonble sublicense fee to cover their arse. How bout 1500 dollars per company. If they all subscribe...1500 dollars? 

1.3 million x 1500 = one billion nine hundred fifty million 

Probably pie in the sky....but it has nothing to do with whatever discussion may otherwise occur about royalties. A sublicence is not a royalty. Is it? 

As far as royalties go...It seems reasonable VCSY would rather receive a percentage of the revenue from the developed use by the 1.3 million companies who partner with Microsoft...only a fraction of that revenue goes to Microsoft. That prospect would not be projected or reported in the civil settlement with Microsoft. This may or may not be the case...if it is may also apply to the agreement with InFinitek...
