Bill in Custody

April 1, 2008 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

Just a quick note in case that you’re waiting for email replies from our support guru Bill. On a short holiday in his old home, Louisiana, Bill got arrested, unfortunately. He just wanted to go and buy some cigarettes and so he bound his pet alligator to a hydrant in front of the shop. Fortune wasn’t on his side when the local police noticed this. According to New Orleans city law it’s forbidden to chain alligators to hydrants. Bill, Bill, … why didn’t you just use the street lamp just two meters next to the hydrant? We’re doing our best to get Bill out of custody as quickly as possible and we’ll keep you posted.

  • Update: Some hard negotiations with the New Orleans city police and we got Bill on the loose again. But we had to give a not-to-be-disclosed number of DEVONthink Pro Office licenses as well as a brand new ScanSnap for their office. So, all is well again here smile *
