Ah well, I suppose I didn't have the money spare for it anyway...
Maybe it's time to get those Irish hackers out of the pub and writing code
so we can be included in the next big Linux share option program ;)

Hello Open Source Community Member
First, forgive us for the impersonal nature of this email. It is impossible
to email each of you personally.
If you have received this letter, you have been selected to receive the
attached materials which detail our directed share program.
Limitations on Participants in Countries other than the United States
If you have received this email and live outside the United States, please
read this section -very- carefully. We have done our best to include
developers in as many foreign countries as possible, however, the securities
laws vary from country to country and there were many countries in
which we understand that applicable local securities laws would prohibit
sales of these securities. Developers in those countries could not be
included as a result.
We understand that there is no restriction on the number of residents of the
following countries included in the directed share program:
Germany--See the legend up above on restrictions related to Germany.
For residents of the following countries, we understand that we can only
include a limited number of people in the directed share program, due
to securities law restrictions of the listed countries:
What this means is that for these countries we have a first come/first
serve situation. If x is the limit for the country, once x people have
completed and returned the attached materials pursuant to the instructions
and requirements set forth therein that country's allotment will be
This number is determined according to securities laws in the noted
countries. We cannot change them. We felt it was better to accept the
attached materials on a first come/first serve method rather than to
completely exclude developers in those countries.
For those countries not listed:
I'm afraid we had to exclude you. For this we are very sorry. There are a
number of reasons that we had to exclude countries. Some countries had
securities law requirements which we could not meet.
