Hoxlund leaving Staples?!?!

Postby dolphinius_rex on Fri Apr 29, 2005 1:43 am

So what's up with that? Did you get laid off for too much piracy or abusing staff return policy's about returning ink cartridges? Or did you actually decide to leave on your own, to fully emerse yourself into movie piracy?

ok... more seriously now, what happened?

Hox,

Congrats on the new job, hope you have a lot of fun! Nothing compares to the smile you get after helping someone out, except getting paid.

Take a look here for transport guidelines.
