Jan Sorhlbaad is no ordinary Swedish grandfather. From first appearances, his modest (albeit damp) home and family are what you might expect. However shocking reports arrived today that could bring down the very fabric of society - yes, Microsoft itself.
Last year, he recounted to a friend a tale of when a stranger appeared on his doorstep needing food, warmth and shelter. "Of course I let him in and offered him my bed" said Jan. "He had an odd look - a little like a small boy in a man's body, with very large glasses and a need to burn small insects".
The young visitor stayed for a few days and Jan went about his chores as usual. Jan was busy "clicking" his mouse ("clicking" has its origins in the Swedish word "klukin" which means to hold firmly) across the windows of his house. He has cleaned his glass like this for many years.
"My young companion was very intrigued by my activities, in fact he drew many pictures of me clicking my mouse across my windows", recalls Jan.
When a friend finally gave Jan a computer, the moment it started Jan was horrified. "I couldn't believe it - there was my mouse, my windows and ....", he gulped and we thought we may have to end the interview, "my clicking !!".
Legal proceedings have begun between Jan and Microsoft - he seeks unspecified damages - althought off the record he said to me that "he could think of a few specific damages he could teach that young man".
