5, 1999, will be (or was, depending on your current time-space continuum
) Burn all GIF
s day, the day all people
should burn their GIFs, either for real
Because the evil Unisys
company holds the LZW
compression patent which is used to compress GIFs, and Unisys has created the evil plan to charge anybody who created GIFs with software
not covered by an appropriate Unisys license
In other words: You no use software we wants, you gives us $5000!
BURN ALL GIFS!!!
