At least they’re honest…

My webhosting company sends out a monthly newsletter.  Unless most bits of marketing drivel that hit my inbox, I actually enjoy reading this one, because it’s typically hilarious.  An example from this month:

4.  New! Webmail Upgraded to 1.4.15!
Of course, putting a ribbon on a turd doesn’t stop it being a turd.
We’ve tried upgrading squirrelmail (our open source webmail software) to
version 1.4.15 recently to see how big a ribbon they put on it: or
and as far as I can see, the ribbon, it does nothing.
What a waste of time that was. No obvious changes or benefits at all.

That’s downright awesome.

    Interesting (last time I looked, squirrelmail really wasn’t considered a turd). But why did your webhosting company update to 1.4.15 when 1.4.16 was released sep 28?

    PS, how’s the wx up there homeslice?
