Revenge is sweet!

I'm minding my own business, selling a few of my computers on eBay so I can move around my office again.* *And then Bozo Powerseller steals my listing format for his own listing, including my images!* *He exploits my hard work and even has the gall to steal my bandwidth.

So, I do what any geek with his own webserver would do.* *I wait till the bidding gets over $1000 on his item, and then I add a little rewrite rule that serves this image just for his listing:



Worked like a champ!* *With a couple of days left to go, he withdrew his auction "due to an error in the listing."

Too bad you couldn't see the expression on his face when he saw what you did. Bet it looked a lot like the image you substituted!

Well done.
