Back in college I regularly 'expirimented' with XP before the term was
even coined.  Although in those days it was called, "Those two guys
are only college students and therefore unworthy of their own

Therefore, the true predecessor to XP was in fact T2GAOCSTUTOCP.

To be clear, XP is a *lot* more than pair programming.  Pairing is
just one small part of XP.

HOW TO TURN $6 INTO $6,000!!!!!!


I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little

while back, I was browsing through newsgroups, just like you are now,

and came across an article similar to this that said you could make

thousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial investment of

$6.00! So I thought, Yeah right, this must be a scam,but

like most of us, I was curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said

that you send $1.00 to each of the 6 names and address stated in the

article. You then place your own name and address in the bottom of

the list at #6, and post the article in at least 200 newsgroups.

(There are thousands) No catch, that was it. So after thinking it

over, and talking to a few people first, I thought about trying it. I

figured: what have I got to lose except 6 stamps and $6.00,

right? Then I invested the measly $6.00. Well GUESS WHAT!!...

within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I was shocked! I

figured it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. In my

first week, I made about $25.00. By the end of the second week I had

made a total of over $1,000.00! In the third week I had over

$10,000.00 and it's still growing. This is now my fourth week and I

have made a total of just over $42,000.00 and it's still coming in

rapidly. It's certainly worth $6.00, and 6 stamps, I have spent more

than that on the lottery!! Let me tell you how this works and most

importantly, why it works....Also, make sure you print a copy of this

article NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you need it.

I promise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that you

will start making more money than you thought possible by doing

something so easy!

Suggestion: Read this entire message carefully! (print it out or

download it.) Follow the simple directions and watch the money come in!

It's easy. It's legal. And, your investment is only $6.00 (Plus postage)

IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not

illegal; and it is virtually no risk - it really works!!!!

If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive

extraordinary dividends.


Please follow these directions EXACTLY, and $50,000 or more can be

yours in 20 to 60 days. This program remains successful because of

the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please continue its

success by carefully adhering to the instructions.

You will now become part of the Mail Order business. In this business

your product is not solid and tangible, it's a service. You are in

the business of developing Mailing Lists. Many large corporations are

happy to pay big bucks for quality lists. However, the money made

from the mailing lists is secondary to the income which is made from

people like you and me asking to be included in that list.

Here are the 4 easy steps to success:

STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on

each piece of paper;PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST. Now

get 6 US $1.00 bills and place ONE inside EACH of the 6 pieces of

paper so the bill will not be seen through the envelope (to prevent

thievery). Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal

them. You should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of

paper stating the above phrase, your name and address, and a $1.00

bill. What you are doing is creating a service. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY

LEGAL! You are requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for

it! Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a little worried

about the legal aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the U.S.

Post Office (1-800-725-2161) and they confirmed that it is indeed

legal! Mail the 6 envelopes to the following addresses:

#1) Jeff Millan

1113 N. 19 ?

McAllen,TX 78501

#2) R. Overton

P.O. Box 18818

So. Lake Tahoe, CA 96151




#4) Stephanie Hicks

1283 Evening Canyon

Henderson NV 89014

#5) Matt Madracki

P.O. Box 1529

Sutton West, Ontario

L0E 1R0

#6)Ronald Andrews

2100 beekman place apt.1m

new york,ny 11225

STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move

the other names up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc...) and add YOUR

Name as number 6 on the list.

STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as

close to original as possible. Now, post your amended article to at

least 200 newsgroups. (I think there are close to 24,000 groups) All

you need is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more money you make!

This is perfectly legal! If you have any doubts, refer to Title 18

Sec. 1302 & 1341 of the Postal lottery laws.

Keep a copy of these steps for yourself and, whenever you need money,

you can use it again, and again.

PLEASE REMEMBER that this program remains successful because of the

honesty and integrity of the participants and by their carefully

adhering to the directions. Look at it this way. If you are of

integrity, the program will continue and the money that so many

others have received will come your way.

NOTE: You may want to retain every name and address sent to you,

either on a computer or hard copy and keep the notes people send you.

This VERIFIES that you are truly providing a service. (Also, it might

be a good idea to wrap the $1 bill in dark paper to reduce the risk of mail

So, as each post is downloaded and the directions carefully followed,

six members will be reimbursed for their participation as a List

Developer with one dollar each. Your name will move up the list

geometrically so that when your name reaches the #1 position you will

be receiving thousands of dollars in CASH!!! What an opportunity for

only $6.00 ($1.00 for each of the first six people listed above) Send

it now, add your own name to the list and you're in business!


Step 1) You do not need to re-type this entire letter to do your own

posting. Simply put your cursor at the beginning of this letter and

drag your cursor to the bottom of this document, and select 'copy'

from the edit menu. This will copy the entire letter into the

computer's memory.

Step 2) Open a blank 'notepad' file and place your cursor at the top

of the blank page. From the 'edit' menu select 'paste'. This will

paste a copy of the letter into notepad so that you can add your name

to the list.

Step 3) Save your new notepad file as a .txt file. If

you want to do your postings in different settings, you'll always

have this file to go back to.

Step 4) Use Netscape or Internet explorer and try searching for

various newsgroups (on-line forums, message boards, chat sites,


Step 5) Visit these message boards and post this article as a new

message by highlighting the text of this letter and selecting paste

from the edit menu. Fill in the Subject, this will be the header that

everyone sees as they scroll through the list of postings in a

particular group, click the post message button. You're done with

your first one! Congratulations...THAT'S IT! All you have to do is

jump to different newsgroups and post away, after you get the hang of

it, it will take about 30 seconds for each newsgroup!



That's it! You will begin receiving money from around the world within days!
You may eventually want to rent a P.O.Box due to the large amount of mail

will receive. If

you wish to stay anonymous, you can invent a name to use, as long as

the postman will deliver it.


Now the WHY part:

Out of 200 postings, say I receive only 5 replies (a very low example). So
then I made $5.00 with my name at #6 on the letter. Now, each of the 5

who just sent me $1.00 make the MINIMUM 200

postings, each with my name at #5 and only 5 persons respond to each

of the original 5, that is another $25.00 for me, now those 25 each

make 200 MINIMUM posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies each, I

will bring in an additional $125.00! Now, those 125 persons turn

around and post the MINIMUM 200 with my name at #3 and only receive 5

replies each, I will make an additional $626.00! OK, now here is the

fun part, each of those 625 persons post a MINIMUM 200 letters with

my name at #2 and they each only receive 5 replies, that just made me

$3,125.00!!! Those 3,125 persons will all deliver this message to 200

newsgroups with my name at #1 and if still 5 persons per 200

newsgroups react I will receive $15,625,00! With an original

investment of only $6.00! AMAZING! When your name is no longer on the

list, you just take the latest posting in the newsgroups, and send

out another $6.00 to names on the list, putting your name at number 6

again. And start posting again. The thing to remember is: do you

realize that thousands of people all over the world are joining the

internet and reading these articles everyday?, JUST LIKE YOU are

now!! So, can you afford $6.00 and see if it really works?? I think

so... People have said, &quote;what if the plan is played out and no

one sends you the money? So what! What are the chances of that

happening when there are tons of new honest users and new honest

people who are joining the internet and newsgroups everyday and are

willing to give it a try? Estimates are at 20,000 to 50,000 new

users, every day, with thousands of those joining the actual


Remember: play FAIRLY and HONESTLY and this will really

1. Agile Modeling (AM) and Extreme Programming (XP)

I just posted the completed first draft of the essay "Agile Modeling and
eXtreme Programming (XP)" at
http://www.agilemodeling.com/essays/agileModelingXP.htm .

In the essay I explore the issue of how AM practices can be tailored into an
XP project as well as how XP practices such as refactoring and test-first
design can be used to enhance AM.  I provide several examples of how XP
developers can benefit from modeling.

I welcome any feedback that you may have.
