This was the greatest Freudian slip ever.

Great product, even better typo!

Funny! It's still there.

Nextelian says:

Spiceworks - go ahead, give us a shit.

mrtonk says:

If I download this, does it mean that I am taking a shit as opposed to giving one?

rlbrooks says:

I guess in Canada giving something a shit is a good thing?

TheANARCHY says:

There is entirely too much s*** talk in this post. But I'll try the app none the less.

Jay005 says:

It started from a typo that was found when the post first went up. It went unnoticed for a bit & then was later changed. Read the firt comment on this post to see what you missed & enjoy a quick laugh.

icebike says:

Wow, talk about a niche market product.

Why does this rate a review?

nttdemented says:

WOW!!! Awesome product. I haven't heard of this product until I saw this post on AC! I'm going crazy right now reading all the documentation and installing it onto two of my client's servers! This will work wonders for independent IT pros like myself! I have about 10 regular clients that will make GREAT use of this management suite! And an Android app for ticketing! Wow, just wow!

Nextelian says:

You'll soon be a part of the 1.5 million happy IT users who gave it a shit!
