Never Take Strange FedEx Letters at Face Value

It has been a couple of weeks since my horrible experience receiving the letter from LucasFilm Ltd. attorney’s office demanding to change the name my computer at work —at that time Darth Vader—under the threat to risk legal proceedings without further notice (you can read my previous post here).

In the last week further developments have come up, that are of extreme importance to be known to those of you who thought the actions from the Star Wars creators were insulting, abusive and preposterous.

Monday Inspiration

For the past the to four months I haven’t been able to commit to my daily web surf. Work has been crazy, and tons of emails with new requests were piling in my inbox. I kept making the mistake of opening my Outlook as the first morning action, and then got hooked on my daily routine.

H’s & P’s

The programmer enters my office as a thunder. I can see on his face that once again I must have done something wrong. He is one of the programmers I’ve been working with for the past ten years, so I know he won’t be punching me on the face. But he is carrying a pen-marked print out of one of the comps I gave him last week.
