The big big disclaimer

Last Update: January 02, 2018

I was sitting here writing out a privacy policy, affiliate disclaimer and all the mandatory boring stuff that we need to have when I came across a text stored in the dark corners of my computer.

I found it in a folder that contained a backup of a website I had back in 1998, so it's already 20 years old. Obviously back then things were not that serious, and also the target audience for my site was nerds (no offense to anyone) so it was the type of people who could enjoy humor like this.

Today it's funny to read because we have to write our disclaimers as semi-legal documents, and we can laugh about what we could get away with back in 1998. So have fun reading.
