"The boss should have had you sign a non-compete clause prior to the edit essentially saying that if the third party approached you directly about working with them, you would have to go through the boss first."

As an advocate of the non-compete, I was wondering if you extended this philosophy to other tradesmen you do business with?
How would you react if say, your plumber, mechanic, carpenter etc asked you to sign a non-compete contract?
If you decide to switch to a different barber, or electrician do you ask their permission first?
When you worked for someone else, did you ask the boss' permission to send out your resume' if you saw a job you were interested in?

I don't disagree with the overall sentiment of what you said, and that common courtesy should always be the rule.

I have a system, it has stuff in it, and stuff hooked to it. I have a camera, it can record stuff. I read the manuals, and know how to use this stuff and lots of other stuff too.
You should be suitably impressed...
