Ok, I just checked out the auction, and it's up to $2,010.00, which lead me to 2 thoughts.
1. Why does anyone want to spend $2k on a prison ID card, that's one expensive novelty.
2. Why is he selling it? The auction site did a great job of hyping the item, but didn't say anything like --The money gained from this will help to pay back his court fees-- or -- We are using this money to set up a trust for future court fees for hackers/crackers.
IMHO, if the money is going to a charity or something, then it's a very good thing, if he's just trying to sell his stuff and make some money, well, I guess that's his choice, but I guess I don't really like it.
I have no idea what Kevin's financial situation is. Or any other aspect of his current life, other than the fact that he has been ordered to stay away from computers for a few years.
Those who don't know me, probably shouldn't trust me. Those who do DEFINITELY shouldn't trust me. :-)
