Software - yes, thank you, Zavatone. I've fixed it in the post.

Re: Al Gore and the InterWeb. You guys should be able to take it as a joke by now. Here's what Al Gore himself said about it: "The day I made that statement, about the inventing the Internet, I was tired because I'd been up all night inventing the Camcorder."

There have been many posts on Neatorama about bank robberies before (the duck tape robber and the Top 10 Stupid Criminals comes to mind)

The term "geezer bandit" isn't ours - the FBI came up with that one.

If you want to be technical, I suppose you can call this post "AMA" because, you know, NEAT OR AMA. :) And when it comes to controversy, this post ain't nothin'. Check out the Elephant Hanging one we had a while back.

@Miss C - scroll to the bottom, then select the checkbox that says "Show Comments." Because of caching, it may take a while before the comments show up in the front page.

@John Farrier - that's just the office. We keep the good stuff in the Neatodungeon :)

Re: alleged/convicted controversy update:

Convicted in absentia, so Krombach is a convicted killer there ... but alleged according to German law because the court there has ruled that the death was accidental.

@zavatone and Necronomic Recovery: it's a character encoding problem that we're trying to solve. When WordPress upgraded their software, they changed the character encoding.

Hopefully we'll get it solved soon.

Since World of Goo is a digital product, they lose nothing if someone buys it for just a penny (presuming no selling cost involved).

I always wonder if this would work on physical goods, where there is a non-zero cost of goods. It's iffy - but there are some pay-what-you-want restaurants that boost their profits with this scheme.
