I just returned home from a business trip. I subscribed to this
newsgroup because I want to know as much about "Lightwave" as I can. I am
planning to purchase the latest version as soon as possible, likely within
about 3 weeks.
Well, to the matter at hand. I am royally pissed with my roommate. He
has obviously been posting without my consent. I thought I had taken the
proper precautions before I left to insure that my system was safe. But
evidently, I was mistaken. When I got back, I opened my Browser to read the
mail in my Inbox and saw that the newsgroup was red. I know what that means.
According to my color scheme, a thread was being watched. I don't recall
marking any threads to be watched before I left town, so I opened up this
newsgroup to see what was marked. Low and behold, the bastard was using my
account and name to post lies about me and now I am being forced to try to
recover what I can.
Based upon the responses to his maliciousness and the replies he has
given I can only surmise that this notice will be taken as another of his
attempt to backpedaled. I am sure his attempts to backpedaled stem from his
concern over my reaction to his post here and the consequences that have
resulted because of them. I would like to assure each of you that I do not
have Lightwave installed on my PC. I never had it installed. And until I can
purchase it legitimately, I won't install it. I do however have a legally
installed 3D program and I'm enjoying it until I can purchase Lightwave. As
I understand it, the TV series Babylon5 used Lightwave for the ships and
space scenes. Or at least that is what I've heard said.
I do hope that all of those whom my roommate has offended will not hold
me responsible for his actions. I have taken the steps necessary to insure
that this does not happen again. The next time I go out of town I am taking
the CPU with me. I'd like to see him get on the PC and*around without
Now I must send this so I can get in contact with the good folks at
Newtek. Damn! I hate it when things like this happen. Tomorrow, I'm getting
his ass evicted. I don't need this kind of crap.
Thanks to you all. And again, Sorry this happened. William Mitkelson
