Search Logs…

Monday, January 29th, 2007

While checking my blog stats today, I noticed that someone had happened onto my blog by typing ‘Pradeep Chand Ottawa’ into one of the major search engines. ( doesn’t tell me which one…)

Turns out that on Google I rank sixth for that query (if you don’t count the supplementals) – I don’t know why I find that so amusing.

Legal Advice

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

I’m going to rely on the legal knowledge of the masses on this one…

All of the emails I’ve received from the Lang Michener guys has this paragraph in the footer:

This message is intended for the addressees only. It may contain confidential or privileged information. No rights to privilege have been waived. Any copying, retransmittal, taking of action in reliance on, or other use of the information in this communication by persons other than the addressees is prohibited. If you have received this message in error, please reply to the sender by e-mail and delete or destroy all copies of this message.

If I read that correctly, there’s nothing there preventing me from publishing the contents of those emails, since I’m the addressee…  Am I right?

Haven’t heard anything from the Lang Michener boys since I started ignoring them. They’ve either given up on me or there’s some registered mail on its way from Ottawa…

More legal crap…

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007

So Mr. Chand decided to finally email me afterall. Welcome to the 21st century – phone calls are so last year. So, as I predicted, he wanted me to just hand over the name and phone number of whoever told me about the gas fireplace rumour.

If he thinks I’m going to simply start throwing names and phone numbers at any lawyer who happens to call up, he’s mistaken. Of course, that’s assuming I even remember who told me what – which I don’t. I don’t even remember who, of all the people I know in VKH, I spoke to.


As I sit here blogging on my luch break, I get an email from a David Debenham, presumably Mr. Chand’s boss. He basically wants me to play nice with Mr. Chand, which I think I have. I wonder what would happen if I just started ignoring them… maybe they’ll go away.

Ah, lawyers

Sunday, January 21st, 2007

So I just got off the phone with Pradeep Chand, who works for Lang Michener. He wants to interiew me about this post because they represent a company that installs gas appliances – wish I could remember the name of the company so I could link to them.

This is really annoying, because now I have to go pay my lawyer to tell me what I already know, which is to not say anything to anyone without a subpoena.

Why do lawyers have to take the fun out of everything – including blogging?
