Post Nitwits of the Nth Degree...
So after showing this to Sol, he decided to use it as fodder for one of his infamous articles on his site, Optic Assault...

Anyway, the story is that one day in my snail mail box here at college I found a flyer for an free online music offer for students at my University through a new service called Rhapsody. I was interested until I went to the site only to find out this service did not support the Mac OS (which is what I have). So I decided to e-mail them to see if they'd have Mac support within the timeframe of this free trial offer. This is the e-mail I sent:


    My name is [Jai'byrd] and I am a Grad student at [Jai's University] living on campus. I am interested in the Rhapsody trial and like to take advantage of it while I can. However I see you do not support the Mac OS yet as I am currently running Mac OS 9.2.2. I was wondering if you had a projection on when you might have Mac support in the future and if so is it within the timeframe of the trial? Thank you for your time.


And this is what I got back:

Your input is appreciated.  [Jai's University] did not choose Rhapsody, we were asked to pilot them.  What we are looking for is this type of service, not necessarily this particular service.  It is unfortunate that Rhapsody does not support the Mac OS, and I'm sure if we decide to go with a music service the service we choose will support the Mac OS.

Thank you for your input.

So yeah... Does anyone else feel like this e-mail was written by a reject from :shock: :roll: :?
