The Mike Hardy Saga, Part III: Insanity

November 13th, 2005

(note: read parts I and II if you haven’t already)

I am willing to give Michael J. Hardy the benefit of the doubt. However, the fact that he takes other people’s work and claims it as his own does not sit well with me. He also happens to claim that he is a part of a software company called Asylum Studios. Honestly, I have no idea which Asylum Studios he’s talking about, but I doubt it really matters anyways. It all seems the same after a while. Read the rest of this entry »

The Mike Hardy Saga, Part II: The Legacy

November 13th, 2005

(note: read Part I if you haven’t already)

In beginning my romp through the magical land of software “created” by Michael J. Hardy, I will start with the first “product” by him I witnessed: Michael J. Hardy’s Doom Legacy. This was pointed out to me (and the Doomworld community at large) in this Doomworld forums thread. There is also a more dedicated thread about him at the NewDoom forums, which got its start by pointing out the same site in question. Read the rest of this entry »

Michael James HardyHello, everyone. I’d like you to meet Michael James Hardy. Mike has a wife, name removed. (Correction/Update: Mike used to have a wife.) He also has a daughter, name removed.

There might be something more entertaining posted soon.

Arr, a new theme arises. I was too lazy to fix the Human Condition theme I was using until WP 1.5, and I just now picked another theme. Also:

The four junk mailersA few days ago, I was somewhat annoyed when an offer for listing one of my domains in “20 search engines” came in the mail, disguised as a bill. Of course it’s not REALLY a bill because it says on the back of it “THIS IS NOT A BILL. THIS IS A SOLICITATION. YOU ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO PAY THE AMOUNT STATED ABOVE UNLESS YOU ACCEPT THIS OFFER.” Yeah, that makes it legit I guess.

These jerks want $47.50 A YEAR to list my site in whatever search engines they submit them to. Never mind I can get it listed for free in several engines by submitting it myself. They also have some ranking position reports and other crap that I don’t really care about because, what, five people visit this site a day? Read the rest of this entry »
