Exactly my thoughts when I read 7's posts. I was merely being sarcastic when
ever mentioning lawsuits. I have a draft on the very same theme/topic in my
Palm... soon to go up to my blog. No sleep, no food, no exercise.... just
logs, logs, logs. No fun...
That's exactly what I meant yesterday when I said in this group that Windows
failure is costing me health too. If you stand for nothing, you'll fall
(victim) to virtually anything...
