The programmer who did the hard work of porting weblogs.com from the Frontier environment to LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) just got a love letter... from his client, Dave Winer's, lawyer.

The letter claims Winer gave Rogers Cadenhead a $5,000 deposit in October 2005. The job, according to Winer's guy: Revisions and maintenance of feeds.scripting.com. Cadenhead describes the job as another LAMP port; this time on Share Your OPML, Winer's RSS subscription site.

Who do you think might have the upper hand? Email Battles shares its reasoning.
