It's moot, of course, but I wouldn't sign an agreement like that if my very 
life depended on it.

Some highlights are the instantly variable charges due and payable at the 
instant of consumption variability without notice; total disclaimer for 
fitness for purpose or merchantable quality;  the non-competition clause, and 
the several absolute discretions reserved by the vendor.

About the best thing you could say about the agreement is that most of it's 
probably unenforceable.
