Geekzone is not the same without Mauricio, so he'll be the chief geek Cool

You could splash out and get him a fancy nametag for the pizza evening.

So you realise (unlike some) that Geekzone wouldn't sell for less than a nice seven or eight figures...

$19,000,000 would have been enough surely? Even allowing for a diamond encusted name badge.

No, I wouldn't. Serious inquiries welcome. But you have to allow for due dilligence including showing a letter of intent accompanied by your last two balance sheets and bank statements for the last six months.

I would have brought a Netgear ReadyNAS, been wishing I'd brought one when I was offered one at half price at last year's Ingram Micro Roadshow.  Oh well hopefully they have the offer again this year.

My name is Prince Will Jnr, son of the late King Will of Nigeria. My father left a great inheritance in offshore bank accounts, and I would like to offer you a once in a life time opportunity to help me retrieve these funds and purchase your business. Now, if you'll just provide a small payment to cover fees....

and so on...Tongue out

I'm guessing it's not a standard el-cheapo home inkjet then if it's worth over $400 :p
