--> You are right on that last point.
My last point being that you're a bright guy? I think that you are and
I'm not just saying it to appease you. This newsgroup gets frustrating
at times because there are other bright people here and it could
actually be *very* interesting IMO. I wish there was less rhetoric and
of a fan-boy mentality and more substance to many of these posts.
