What does this have anything to do with anything?

As I said, I did not ask for comments from the peanut gallery. All I 
wanted was the name of an application for Ubuntu which would do what I 
asked for.

All you did is waste my, and others', time in reading your diatribe.

What name of an application which I asked for you have mentioned which 
would be of interest to me?

Don't me give me this bullshit. I worked for years in an organisation 
which dealt with nothing BUT statistics, statistics, statistics, statistics.

You know perfectly well that if I have a chicken, statistics will show 
that between you and me we both have 1/2 of a chicken.

I don't need more detail.

Read my response(s) to Ric.
