SW Fox Dispute Finally Settled!

Finally after months and months of bitter negotiations we've resolved our long standing dispute with Tamar Granor, Rick Schummer and Doug Hennig - the organizers of this year's Southwest Fox conference. Now that we've put that matter behind us we are pleased to announce that F1 Technologies will be sponsoring Southwest Fox again this year. As part of our settlement Rick strong armed us into providing a copy of Visual FoxExpress along with a free 6-month subscription for every registered attendee. Let me tell you Rick is one shrewd negotiator - Chester Karass could take some lessons from him. Even though we'll already be giving a free copy of VFE - a $699 value - to every attendee, Rick still "convinced" us into participating in the trade show as well.

The official deal is on Rick's blog. We'll let you read the fine print there in order to avoid another dispute with Rick. One thing Rick didn't mention, which in no way am I saying is an oversight on his part, is that we'll need a valid email address for each attendee in order to redeem this offer. When we return from Southwest Fox we'll be sending an email to each attendee with instructions on how to get their copy of VFE.

In addition to exhibiting Toni Feltman will be giving two sessions: "What's all this noise about OOP?" and "Introduction to the DBI Controls Included in Sedna." We'll also be holding a session to demonstrate the latest and greatest version of VFE - you know, the one each attendee gets for free.

Southwest Fox is a great conference. We're looking forward to participating again. We hope to see you there.

P.S. If you're wondering what the dispute was about, I'm sorry to say we'll have to keep you in the dark on that one due to the confidentiality agreement Rick made us sign. Maybe you'll be able to ply it out of one of us over a few beers at the conference though.

Sounds like the same one Micromega had. Although ours was NOT with Rick, Doug and Tamar but more with "where do we get this info from"

We'll never tell. All I'll say is don't get on Rick's bad side.
